Last New Image Before Christmas

Hiya folks!

I hope you are all managing to get your arrangements sorted for Christmas? So many poor sods stuck in airports over here in the UK, with no relief in sight. Take my advice folks - DO NOT travel at Christmas!! Something always goes wrong at this time of the year - last year was that Volcano followed by bad weather, this year a bit of snow and ice! LOL

Well, I have the kids home from school AGAIN. Both the Primary and High School are shut today. Not meant to break for Christmas until Wednesday up here in N. E. Scotland! So that's another loooong weekend notched up for them. (sigh)

Decided to do another doodle (last one before Christmas) and thought I would do a different Fairy image this time, in the way of making her a sketched image rather than line art, and here she is, the 'Wistful Fairy', available now in the
Delicious Doodles Shop:

And I have made a card to showcase her using one of the sketches from Midnight Madness:

I also chose to use the colour scheme from the challenge at Colour Create, which is 'Plum and White'. The base cardstock is from the local craft shop. Papers are my own from the 'Snowflake' set, which I have made into a tinted version and negative version. I have also used white card and plum mirri for the snowflake flowers and the frame round the image, with gems for the snowflake flower centres. Ribbons and stickles are from the stash.

Righty then. Off to go shovel some more snow now, after getting lunch for the kiddo's that is. Oh my aching shoulders!! Catch ya later peeps!

Some more challenges I am entering with this card:
