Christmas Card Challenge #7 - Cute Christmas

Hi Crafters,
Today we have our challenge at the CCC and it is Cute Christmas. I decided to ink up a neglected stamp from Lili of the Valley - 'Christmas Star', I had forgotten I had this one. Some might say it's because I have too many stamps (mentioning no names - Hubby, lol) but I say it's because it was hidden behind another larger stamp, and I'm sticking to that.
Well here she is.....

6x6 card blank
Christmas Star Stamp - Lili of the Valley
Promarkers
Digi Papers - Just So Scrappy Too
Kraft Card embossed with snowflakes
Cheery Lynn snowflake die
Glamour dust
Sentiment - Papermania Urban Stamps 'Home For Christmas'
 
Challenges:
Scribble & Scrap - Anything Goes #15
TTCRD - Anything Goes
Winter Wonderland - Get Krafty
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Completely Christmas - Anything Goes #5
CHNCC - Anything Goes
Sketch Saturday - Sketch #216     

Although yet again this was a last minute make, I seem to be on catch-up with everything at the moment, I really enjoyed colouring this little image and the layout is a sketch I followed so that took some of the thinking out of it, lol.
I'm entering this in to some challenges which I will edit later as it's Mother's Day and we have some family plans and time has run out on me again. I really needed an extra hour this weekend, not lose one, nevermind. Hope you all enjoy your M' Day.
I will be round for a catch up with your blogs later,
 
See you soon,
 
Lorraine

Lorraine, my stamps have a habit of hiding too. Along with other supplies. (could be I have too many, could be I have too much 'mess'). Your image is uber cute, and your coloring is beautiful. Love these LOTV images, wish they were available in the USA. Your dp is so cheery & loved the layout design too. TFS & Happy Mother's Day. Hugs

This is so delightful Lorraine - I love the papers and the sketch you have used. Must admit it reminded me of a card I made a couple of years ago with the same stamp and, for some reason, my image wasn't straight but I thought no-one would notice. Then my hubster says, "why is she standing on a hill" Ooops, made me laugh though. Yours is bautifully straight!

Big hugs to you Sue Pxxx

Finally managing to comment at last! Mr blogger is not very happy at the moment. I keep loosing things from my blog. Very frustrating to say the least. I love your image you have chosen and she is cute in her lovely red with white fur trimmings. Really enjoyed joining in for the first time on the CCC. hugs Mrs A. (valery).
