Christmas wishes

Woohoo, it's Friday. :D And you know what this means, right? Yes, time off, which equals time for crafting. :D He he. We're supposed to have a nice sunny weekend so I think I might go out for a walk and hopefully I'll find some chestnuts too. I looove chestnut. :) Other than that I think I will spend most of my time crafting. Sounds like a good plan, right?

I've been mostly working on Christmas cards lately - gotta get ready for December. ;) The one I'm about to show you is the most recent one I made. I saw that C. C. Designs is having a DT call (click here for more info) so I thought I would try and apply for the DT position and this card was created especially for that. Now I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

For the second time ever I've done stitching on card. Oh boy, how I like the look. I really don't know why I don't do this more often. I definitely should! Again I decided to colour up the sweet Pickle from Wild rose studio. This little fella always makes me go all awwww. :) He's coloured with Promarkers and Faber Castell pencils. And for the white parts of his hat I used diamond Stickles.

All of the embellishments I used on my card came from my stash. I used several different dies from Memory box, Sizzix and Spellbinders on this card. Embossing was done with Mpress' and Anna Griffin's embossing folders. I raised the image on foam pads to give the card some extra dimension

Wishing you a wounderful day! Hugs! xx
