The Joy of giving

My X-mas Sarah Kay stamps from Sweet'n Sassy stamps arrived yesterday. Guess if I am pleased :-)

So of course I needed to stamp and create at least one X-mas card before the vacation. Here's the result and yes - this time I managed to shoot the photo 22.30 - yes, ladies - not 23.00. Maybe I am on my way to actually take some pics in daylight...hihi.......

Well - papers, glass pearls and snowflake are from the local shop Pysselakuten. Ribbon from stash, SU text stamp and of course I also needed to use some stickles - to make this X-mas card a little bit more "festive". I coloured the image with SU markers and aquarelle brush. Chalked the edges with Pinecone.

Hope you'll like it. I have finished off colouring the image with the second stamp "Angels rejoice" - however need to go to bed now, so I have to finalize the card tomorrow.

Also - Isac helped me to cut the papers for this card. He loves being in the craft room with me.

By the way - my nieces are going to spend the night here tomorrow and I would need your help - the oldest one is going to a Halloween party (she is 12) and is not sure what costume to wear. We do not celebrate Halloween here in Sweden, but some has started to pick up that tradition. So any ideas of what she could wear?

Natti, natti
