A Traditional Xmas Card

Hiya folks!

Hope I find you all well this Saturday? Me? I've had a busy morning in front of the compy here.

First of all I needed to get a random number organised for the followers candy on the new Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog, which has now reached over 50!! Way to go peeps!! Winner is now chosen by Random.org. What a pain that was!! Couldn't figure for the life of me how to get the image panel to work, so I gave up and copied the blurb instead. I do hope you can join us over there. It all kicks off with a Blog Hop on Friday 19th November - loads of digi's to be one!!

Next up was to upload some new images to the Delicious Doodles Shop, which is now done. The first three are part of the '12 Days of Christmas' theme I am attempting to do. Hope I get the all done before this Christmas! LOL. The next image is this one, 'Mother Mary':


A lovely sketch of the Virgin Mary with Baby Jesus. This one is perfect for the more traditional project. I have used it for my card today:


I also made my own backing paper with some photoshop brushes and a little star image I have on the compy. I used it in the background with some text overlaid onto it. The text is actually a verse from the hymn/carol 'We Three Kings'. I used the 'Star of wonder' bit. I also used the same backing in a different colour to make the oval frame, with gold mirri on top, then the image on top of that.


The flowers are made with my usual punches and spare off-cuts of card, and wee gems for the centre. Gold ribbon is from the stash.

Righty then, need to finish up even more doodles, well I say finish up - perhaps start is more appropriate!! Just as well it is raining today, plenty of doodling time if the family let me!! See ya later peeps!

I am entering these challenges with this card:
Wild Orchid - Christmas Red, Green and Gold
Tip Top Tuesday - Christmas Traditions
Charisma Cardz - Christmas
Polka Doodles - Quicky and easy Christmas
