PTW ... SFoS ... ABC ... zzzzz....

I spotted that this week over at ABC Challenge they have reached the end of the alphabet for the first time - congratulations ladies!! .. and their theme for this week is zzzz (sleeping). How cute is that?? I actually have got several stamps of cute PB sleeping characters as well as one or two House Mouse RAK's, but this stamp is definitely one of my favourites. As luck would have it I'd got a "left over" image ready coloured and glittered from Christmas, so I knew what I had to do!

At PTW this week the theme is hearts and flowers ... so Valentine's cards might spring immediately to mind, but I think I am all Valentine'd out right now, so I decided to make a hearts and flowers Christmas card. Hopefully you will notice that I have incorporated hearts both into the sentiment and the cute little gems. I'm not up to date with doing a Christmas card a week during 2009, but at least I now have a couple done already!

I have laid this card out line with the sketch for this week's Spoon Full of Sugar #37 , which I have rotated by 90 degrees.

Main image: PB "The Night Before Christmas", coloured with watercolour pencils & Twinkling H2)s, and decorated with pewwe glitter;
Sentiment: PB "A Wish from the heart";
papers: All BasicGrey "Figgy Pudding";
Flowers: Prima "Christmas Bubble";
other items from my stash.

Thanks for looking!

  5. Pauline, what an adorable card. Seems like Christmas was so long ago now, and frankly I have had just about enough of Valentines cards, looking forward to moving forward. I did try to link my site in the Penny Black challenge today, but failed, don't know what I am doing wrong, don't know where I put the copied URL. Maybe my daughter the Tech person can help me next week. Thanks for your time though.
