What a lovely week we have had - lets hope it continues now for the next few weeks especially with the Golden Jubilee week coming up very soon.

Seren finally returned back to school on Thursday after catching chicken pox but thankfully she only had it very mild.  Friday the parents were asked if they would come into school and help their child make a treasure box for the child's  theme of Islands as apparently the children had decided there were treasure boxes on the islands :-)

Anyway back to my card.  I have followed the lovely sketch over on Christmas Challenges (with sketches) which also had an extra theme of Bingo.  I chose to use a charm, lace and pearls.

I have used one of my Hanglar stamps and coloured her in with promarkers adding Holly Stickles to her hat.  The cardstock is Old Olive and the dp is a selection from Jolly Holiday Designer Paper Series all from Stampin Up.  Ribbon from my stash, large pearl brads from Whiff of Joy and pearl brad in flower centre from my stash as is the snowflake charm.  The poinsietta flower is made up of 2 flower shapes from craftworkcards as is the sentiment which has been layered onto an oval punched out with my SU punch.

Sorry not been around for seems like ages but did post a card 2 weeks ago on here!  I just can't find any motivation anymore to make cards - even thought about selling all my stash!!  

On Wednesday Seren came home from school showing signs of chicken pox which is all I needed so I have had to have the rest of this week off and next week booked as a holiday!  Luckily Seren doesnt seem to bothered with it as the spots seem to be mild and most have started to scab over but knowing my luck more will appear lol!  Her daddy was suppose to be having her this weekend but has had to keep away from her as he has never had chicken pox plus he works doing maintenance in nursing homes so his doctor advised it wasn't advisable to be in contact with her until the spots have gone past the infectious side!

Anyway I did manage to get a card done (although a Christmas card) following the sketch over on Christmas Challenge (with sketches).

I have used a stamp from Wild Rose Studio called Ella with Wand and coloured her in with promarkers, sakura pen on the star and pink glitter.  The dp used is from DCWV Rose Tinted Christmas and the cardstock is Stampin Up Pink Passion.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards, flowers punched out with my Nellie Snellen poinsietta punch and pink gems from my stash.
