Rebel Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday everyone :-D I'm a tad bit late but my time management these days is off the scale and not in a good way lol.  I'm going to have to be quick cuz I've got a lot to do and not enough time to do it in. I think that's a common complaint with a lot of people these days!

Although it's a Summer Fun challenge theme this month I decided to be a rebel and add to my Christmas card collection and use one of the new Christmas Delight digi's I hadn't coloured up yet. Let me know what you think...

I printed  Christmas Robin Delight and coloured it in with my Copics (I will get my Prisma Pencils out one of these days). BFF emailed me through a couple of cards she'd made for a magazine and I loved the pp she used so of course I HAD to have it :-D I printed Nitwits Mr and Mrs onto linen paper and I have to say I love it even more...the colours are so pretty. I added Glamour Dust to the birdhouse and snow for lots of sparkle.

Oops...the lines must have moved when I was colouring lol. I added a Siam Swarovski crystal to the berry in the Robin's mouth and added Glossy Accents to the rest

I used my most fabulicious Magnolia Doohickey Christmas Tree die for the first time (it was a Christmas prezzie last year) and added pale pink Swarovski crystals to decorate it. Very sparklicious!

A little peek at the inside

I'm heading up north to Granton tomorrow to do a Pampered Chef show for Nicole's MIL. It will be my 1st show after my own and I think I'm a tad more nervous this time lol. It's a 3 1/2 hour drive so I'll be staying over night. Wish me luck :-D

Thanks for stopping by today and as always for your lovely comments :-D

Catch ya later x
