2 Crafty Girls Winter Blues Challenge


Hello, today sees the start of another challenge over at the 2 Crafty Girls Challenge Blog. This fortnight our theme is Winter Blues and the sponsor is the fabulous PPinkydolls.


The image I chose is the beautiful Waitting for Him, available to purchase here. I fell in love with this digi straight away and it was an absolute joy to colour.

I came up with the idea of a Missing You at Christmas card as the girl looks so wistful. Christmas can be difficult for many people who can't be with loved ones. We have suffered the loss of a dear friend this year so this is also because we are thinking of him.

I have kept the card simple as I love the image so much. The image has been coloured using Spectrum Noir Markers and inked round using Faded Jeans distress ink. The papers are from the Crafter's Companion Beatrix Potter A Winter's Tale CD and the hearts have been cut using Trimcraft Santoro Willow Dies.

Of course it won't have escaped your notice that today is Christmas Eve so I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and to thank you all for your support this year.

Lots of love
Cathy x
