I popped the image onto silver mirri card  and then popped that onto some lovely pink sparkly card, added some really sweet tiny tinsel , some stuning Christmas ribbon (need to get some more am almost out) and some lovely sparkly web finished of with some yummy lavender dew drops

Oh the weather outside is frightful

The other day my Granddaughter got her first kitty - she has always been cat mad , when I was chatting to her  I asked her what she wanted for christmas - her reply * Anything Grandma your presents are always lovely but my cat would like , toys, some nice biscuits the list went on* - as soon as i got my lovely image from Digital Delights I knew I had to do it in the colours of her cat and made a gift tag for her Christmas treats! 


My lovely image is Chimney Cat how cute !!  I actually used a fine liner in my darkest Grey , I don't use them very often but am getting used to them. Fot the white background I used a dotty embossing folder and then coloured in the dots using my Silver Shake'it It love the effect soooooo sparkly in real life....

I'm in the Club!!!

Woooohoooooo Happy Monday Everyone
I have some exciting news to share
I'm in the club
........

The Colour Therapy Club 
Check out all the details right here

As soon as  I joined I knew which beaut I was going to colour up first
I ummmed and ahhhhed about which size to do but not for long A4 it was

If you have read previous posts of mine you will know that when I colour an A4 I mentally break it into quarters - with this one I knew exactly which colours I wanted to use so did it slightly different - all the greens, all the reds etc


I coloured up using Graph' It Markers , (please let me know if you would like the colour combos used) then I used Lyra pencils for detail, also using White Shake'It Marker, Gold Stickles, Glamour Dust and Shimmer Chalks , The background was a light gold chalk it's really lush in real life.

It does not matter which way I take the full photo I can not get it to sparkle hence the trillion smaller pics.

Q. What do the elves sing to Santa Claus on his birthday?
A. Freeze a jolly good fellow
