comfort and joy (no 5)

yes afraid so xmas card number 5 ~ (what is happening with my photos these days?? not clear at all!!~ maybe click on it for a clearer look)
used this amazing sketch over on only xmas and birthday cards, also managed to complete the challenge over on xmas cards all year round, the theme this month is pink/red/white colours and use some hearts.
used this "new" sugar nellie stamp (from my friend jo), magnolia hearts (decoupaged) , crafty individuals christmas paper, studio g words, ribbons and gems from my stash ~finished with lots of stickles glitter, (cannot see on my pic, but looks so good around the edge of the hearts).~even if i say it myself!!! :~)
this is an edit bit ~thankyou debby found the button ~gosh how different it looks!! don`t know how to delete old pic of the card ~so now you have two!!! before and after!! ha ha!!

hope you are having a good day ~keep warm !! aaron has a crosscountry school run today (doesn`t want to go to school!!~could have a fight on my hands!!!)
byeeeeeeee for now, keep warm xx

Really lovely card, Vanessa! Love the colours even though I'm really traditonal in the christmascard's colours myself :) Your sugar nellie image is cute and you have coloured her nicely.

Hope Aaron is having a great day on his crosscountry schoolrun today. We got some more snow yesterday and today my boys' school is having a big sledge competition (annual event). Both my boys are competing on different sledges. The clue in this competition is to build their own sledge!

Well, I have to go now. I'm having a great day; I'm off to my hairdresser!

Hugs, Kristin :)

Lovely sweet card, do love the cute image.
Does your camera have a macro setting, its the one with a flower on thats what I use when I photo cards.

such a pretty card and I love the Magnolia hearts on the side - I have them and might copy your idea. It is freezing cold and sleety rain here, certainly not weather for running about in shorts! hugs, annie x

Love your card Vanessa. Hope Aaron got on ok with his cross country. Daniel rarely does PE, apparently, alot of AS kids refuse.

a brilliant card, love the baubles on the design papers, hope that Aaron's cross-country run wasn't too painful for him..xx
