Holiday hugs

Hello lovlies. How are you doing? 

The other day when I was writing Christmas cards my lil one came around and asked me which of those cards is for her. I explained to her that all of those cards are for our friends and family members. She looked me with those big eyes and said: "But they are so pretty. I want one too." So I promised her that I will make another card just for her so she can display it in her bedroom. She wasn't too keen about this idea, because she knew this means she would have to wait a couple of days for her card, but when I told her she could choose the image herself she agreed. :) She chose the cute snowman stamp from Stamping Bella. I also love this snowman. I thin it's very cute and I feel like he has his hands up in the air like this because he wants to give everybody a hug. :D

My lil one loves pink (who would have thought, right?! :P) so I wanted to make a card in pink tones, but I realized I don't have any pink dp that would be suitable for a Christmas card. *ooops* So I changed my plan and went for purple and torquise colour combination. And I added some yellow(ish) gold snowflakes for that extra splash of colours. The lil missy was happy with the card, which is most important.

Papers are from my stash and so are all the embellishments. I coloured the image with polychromos and added some diamond stickles on the white parts of the hat.

When I showed my daughter this card her first reaction was "wow", and then immediately followed this question: "Where are the hearts?" I had an "ummmmm" moment for a couple of seconds, because hearts were not part of the original request. Luckily I used the La La Land snowflakes (my favourite snowflake dies!) on this card and they have small heart shaped holes in them. So I showed those to my daughter and luckily she was happy with that. Now this card is displayed on a shelf in her bedroom. 

As this is my last post before Christmas, let me wish you a merry Christmas. May it be filled with love and laughter despite the strange time we are in right now. I hope you will get to spend it with your loved ones. Hugs! xx
