Season of Cheer

Hi there , welcome to my room . Thank you for calling in , I hope you stay a while and find something inspiring , or at least interesting . Double welcome to new follower , thanks for choosing to follow my blog .
More cold weather here in Adelaide . Secretly  I dont mind because  I get to craft away in my room but poor DH gets cabin fever .Not being able to gopher outside and not allowed to drive the car means that his entertainment is limited to PC , TV  or wireless . So roll on warmer weather . Get well wishes to one of my craft friends , Jane , who normally comes here on Sunday [ yesterday ] but was not well enough .Sandy and I crafted Sunday afternoon away and enjoyed each others company .
Here it is Monday , the beginning of another Make it Monday ..where we can share each others compny in blogland..I so love Mondays as DT Member of Make it Monday .
My card to share this week , using an image from our sponsor is another Christmas card .I KNOW ..I did say that I thought the last one would be the last one but ...well ...make allowances , I'm old . LOL
I just need more practice at colouring images . I'd love it if you could pay all the DT member's blogs as they are all so talented and you will find some stunning creations.

I stamped image on watercolour paper and coloured with watercolour pencils adding a little Kindyglitz on wings . A couple of rub-ons for sentiment and embellishing .
On a card base of Real Red , SU , I layered some dsp then a panel of more dsp before adding image from  our sponsor
