Tatty's White Christmas

Hi guys,

It has been a wierd one this weekend. One minute wet and cold, the next the sun is blazing and you are boiling away! We were out at an arachnology event and so the weather was very annoying at times, but the area was gorgeous. I don't have any photos to share unfortunately as I left my camera at home.

However, I do have a Christmas card to share with you all:

I wanted to keep the design very clean, so I stamped the Me to you image straight onto the card base and then coloured with papermania watercolour markers (I did try stamping with these but they didn't quite work as they are very pale). Once I finished the colouring I realised that the bear on the left is supposed to be a snowbear! DUH!
I stamped the sentiment using the Tatty Teddy grey ink pad, and then stamped snowflakes (also from the same stamp set) using gold and silver ink pads. Finally I punched a couple of snowflakes into the bottom corners.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday - Use more than one stamp
craftingbydesigns - Get Ready for Christmas
ATSM #293 Holiday
CCEE1821 NEWS (N for New (ink pads), E for Empty Space (and also empty holes for the punches), W for watercolours (and wrapped up), S for snow (and seating))
craftycatz #418 Christmas
craftyhazelnut Christmas #387 Use some silver
inkspirational #161 Photo inspiration (I was inspired by the girl being seated under an arch)
ABC Christmas - K for Keep it Simple
Thank you for looking - I will have a new book review for you next time :)
