It's Christmas at TCPF

Hiya folks!

Gosh, where has the week gone to? I can't believe I haven't blogged for almost a week!! I hope I find you all well and not totally snowed in where you are?? Only a small flurry here in NE Scotland, despite the forecast of 'heavy snow' Don't think it will be as bad here as it was the last week or so. (I hope anyway!)

Righty then, my card today is my DT piece for The Crafty Purple Frog, and this time we are celebrating 'Christmas'. This is our last challenge until the New Year, but I hope you will find the time to join in. We have a fab sponsor in the shape of 'Kenny K' along with the usual Purple Frog sheets, so plenty of prizes up for grabs!

I have used Crafty Purple Frog Pyrimage sheet 'Poinsettia Fairy' for this card. My papers are a mix of Tinker & Co and my own paper that I made using a coloured version of my own Poinsettia image, and one that I made after scanning some wallpaper into the compy. The ribbon is an old wired tartan one I have had for a few years now, bow is hand-tied. The flower is a fabric one with added beady stems, I just popped a bit of red ink on the petals for some definition. Gems are also from the stash.

You'll have to forgive the odd colouration on these photos, they were done in a hurry in less than naff lighting last night!! Can't improve on that at the mo, as the light here is just abismal. OK, so hope to see you over at The Crafty Purple Frog folks! Bye for now!

Some challenges I am entering:
Truly Scrumptious - Sketch and 'frame' theme
Creative Inspirations - Anything Christmas
Pear Tree Designs - Christmas
Magical Monday - Fairytale Christmas
