Tra La La la...

Hello lovely people,

It's nearly the weekend but before we get to that there is the important matter of a new challenge at All Dressed Up and our theme this time is...


As usual, the winner of the challenge will get THREE images of their choice from the ADU Etsy store and the DT will be picking our top 3 favourite entries :-)

The DT are showcasing two lovely new digi stamps and since I have so many Christmas cards still to make I have chosen Tra La La la.

 This is such a fun image; I especially love the cute robins at the top!  I wanted to add some little pops of colour on it to contrast with the neutral colour scheme for the rest of the card.

Right now I am loving twine wrapped around ribbon/lace and the tiny tags and snowflake were the perfect addition to finish it off.

Card recipe;
Image: Tra la la la - available in the ADU Etsy store
Dies: Impression Obsession small snowflake set
Lace / pearls: from stash

Copic colours;
I have hunted high and low for my bit of paper with the list of colours I used but it has vanished.  Time to tidy my craft room?!

I would like to enter this card in the Sweet Stampin' challenge where they have the theme 'Christmas is coming' and that means Christmas songs!

Talking of songs, we are off to visit some of Dr Hubby's family over the weekend and will be going to a gig by Chaser (the hardest working covers band in South Wales!) on Saturday night where his sister's OH is the bass player - should be a lot of fun :-D

Don't forget to pop over to All Dressed Up to see the amazing cards from the rest of the Dressy Girls and
also you have just a few hours left to enter my giveaway, which I will draw when I get home on Sunday.

Thanks for visiting and your comments are always hugely appreciated,

Kat xx

So much cuteness going on here Kat! Of course the image is great and your colouring but I also like the brown tones and those cute little tags. And the snowflakes... I'm mighty partial to snowflakes!

Hi, Kat! Hope you are doing well, and that life is being good to you. I can hear the sweet tra-la-la-la'ing of your darling little critters - love that brown vintage card look that still looks fresh and crisp. Very pretty with the lace and that tiny, delicate bow. This is so pretty and festive, and your shading is beautiful, Kat. hugs, de
