Penny Black Saturday ~ Let it Snow

Happy Saturday to one and all it so wet here today yuck definately a day in the house for crafting me thinks. I started this morning by making my card for this weeks challenge over on


and it also fits the challenge at

Penny black @ Allsort 

which is "It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas"

This weeks theme is Let it Snow. I decided to team it up with the Flickr Penny Circle challenge which is a fabby sketch. Again I have gone for a CAS style I really do think the image should be the main focal point of the card. This image doesn't need anything else really it speaks for itself in all its cuteness.

 Apologises for my photo not good light today. I really MUST dig out my light tent and photograph my cards properly as sometimes these picture really do not do them justice at all. This image was sent to me in a RAK I only had 3 of them and decided to use them all and decoupage my image. This card is being sent to someone who I know will love it to bits. Can't say just now.

I have coloured my image using a mixture of Copics, Promarkers and prismacolor pencils. This image just screams Glamour Dust so it HAD to be added  to the snow. I have attached 3 small bells to the rather large red bow made with Anna Griffin satin ribbon..scrumpticious.

Well that's it for me just now. I have lots to share with over the next week. It starts tomorrow with Just Cute Bears & Friends challenge. then from Monday I will be showcasing a CAS Christmas card every day of next week for you.

Whatever you are up to today.....Enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by!
