Firstly I need to apologise for my lack of commenting; I have been having horrible problems with blogger and the 'comments' section over the last couple of weeks, (even though everything else on there seemed to be working fine), so much so I had to get one of our IT bods at work to finally sort it out for me which he did today - thank you Rich - you are a lifesaver and I hope you enjoy your bottle of wine!
So I will be getting round to see you all over the next few days - I have been looking I just haven't been able to comment - weird :os - but thank you all for your comments - you really are the best.
I would like to say a big "HELLO" to my new follower - thank you - I'm very flattered that you have chosen to follow my work :o)
It's Saturday again (where did the week go too?) and that means it's challenge time over at Totally Gorjuss and this week the theme is "Not Square" and our super generous sponsor is The Hobby House.
Now I have to admit, I really struggled with this challenge as everything I seem to make is square so I decided to make the square a little bit bigger at the sides and made a rectangle - ha ha ha ;o)
Here is the full card:
I've had this fab stamp from Sugar Nellie for quite some time but just never got around to inking her - a bit like all the other rubber stamps sat in my cupboard un-inked - bad Hazel! I keep telling myself that I will rectify this and I will use the stamps I have bought before buying any others, but as always, I end up seeing some stamps that 'I just have to have' and the cycle continues!
The recipe for the card is as follows:
Stamp: Sugar Nellie - Fifi Goes Shopping
Papers: Carta Bella - Winter Fun
Big Snowflake Die: Cheery Lynn - Snowflowers Set 2
Small Snowflake Die: Cheery Lynn - Snowflakes
Corner Die: Whimsy - Corner Die Set
Banner Die: Die-Namics - Fishtail Flags Stax
Border Die: Doohickey - Mini Zig Zag & Scalloped Lace
Sentiment Stamp: Papertrey Ink - Signature Christmas
The image has been coloured with Copics:
Skin: E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair: E27 E25 E35 E34
Jacket, Hat and Doggie Jumper: BG78 BG75 BG18 BG72 / N0 (shading)

Presents and Bags: BG78 BG75 BG18 BG72 / N7 N6 N5 N4 N3 / B01 BG000 BG0000 /

I have outlined the image with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
The papers have been edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink
I have used absolutely oodles of Glamour Dust on her hat, jacket, boots and doggie jumper and all over the snowflakes but as usual you can't really see it on the picture due to my rubbish photography skills!
If you like the scalloped die there is a whopping 40% discount off it - and it comes with another border die too - click HERE to go and have a look - what a bargain!
One final picture where you can see I have copied the layout through to the inside of the card:
And that's it.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
