O Christmas tree

Hello lovely people,

I had the most wonderful weekend away in Torquay with 4 other couples and their Caterham 7 cars.  We drove around in our fabulous cars, visited a heritage fairground, ate and drank lots and generally had a HUGE amount of fun :-)

We got back later than I thought we would on Sunday so I am still chasing my tail a bit and am a little late sharing my card for the new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday - oops!  This time our theme is...

So, think non-traditional colours and/or images

We are sponsored by Zlatoena's Design with a prize of 2 digi images for the winner :-)

I have a large stack of gorgeous Pion DP ready for my Christmas makes and none of it is in traditional colours so this was pretty easy for me!

I have had this stamp for several years and it's always one of the first I reach for each year as it is super cute... in any colour!

Card recipe;
DP: Days of Winter - Pion Design (available from Live and Love Crafts)
Sentiment: from Pink Petticoat (now discontinued)
Charm: Live and Love Crafts I think but can't find it on there!

Copic colours;
Tree: G40/YG63/G94/G99
Bunnies: E41/42/43
Mice / snow: W00/1/3
Blanket / stars: R0000/000/00/01
Dots: E04

I hope you will pop over to Top Tip Tuesday and check out the fabulous creations, and the top tips from the rest of the team, including some great tips on mass production from Deneen.

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Challenges I am playing along with;
1.  Without Words (It's a celebration)
2.  Winter Wonderland (layer it up)
