And a couple of cards!

Last one before bed - sorry for the mega posts I'm catching up again inbetween dying of Ma'am flu!
I've had a reshuffle at home so am now in the lounge which has never been the lounge its always been OH's office but with him working from home its not very appropriate when he's having a video conflab and the kids burst in shouting Daddy I've done a poo!  So he's now moved to a room we have above the garage!  We live in a bungalow but there's rooms everywhere, its like the tardis here!  He's given me the lounge as when we have visitors we tend to go in the conservatory so now I'm settling in and finding places for my regular stash I can actually sit down and make things yay!

This is one of the new images by Lemon Shortbread from Crafts & Me, this one is Christmas Melody who you can do in any colours you like!  I've added some grey shading to her dress then coloured it in with a clear sakura stardust pen so its super sparkly.  I've also added a tiny pearl to her hat and ribbon.
DP's are from Bearly Mine Designs (Christmas Wonderland & Christmas Frolics)  Swirl is one I've borrowed from Mrs Stampman and is Sir Tim's Elegant Flourishes.  Text circle stamp is from a set by HOTP cut out with a Nellie Snellen die.  Card is finished with a squirt or three of iridescent gold glimmer mist which Crafts & Me are now stocking yay! 

Would like to enter this into...

Freshly Brewed - Sparkle & Shine (Dress is sakura stardust & card finished with iridescent gold glimmer mist)

I'll show my other card tommoz coz I need to go beddy byes!
