THIS CALL OUT CLOSES ON 7 JANUARY 2013.

So, onto my card for this week:


Now, I must apologise for the absolutely pants photo - its so grainy; someone had been messing with my camera settings and I hadn't realised when I had taken these pictures but as this was a commissioned card I couldn't re-take them as it was winging its way to the receipient!

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Tiddly Inks - Winter Wryn and Extra Snowman
Kraft Card:  Craftwork Cards (this is awesome kraft card!)

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin: E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair:  E53 Y21 Y11 / N0 (shading)
Dress and Hat:  E39 E29 E27 E24 E22 / N0 (shading)
Boots:  N7 N6 N5 N4 N3
Snowman:  C2 C1 C0 C00
Snowman Hat:  N7 N6 N5 N4 N3
Snowman Scarf:  E39 E29 E27 E24 E22 / N0 (shading)
Snowman Nose:  YR18 YR12
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

I have outlined the image with Iced Spruce Distress Ink
The papers have been edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink

To finish the card off, I stitched around the outside of the card and added lots of Glamour Dust to the Snowman and Wryn's hat and dress.

So, there is only one thing left for me to do .........

I WISH YOU ALL A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND
A HAPPY, PEACEFUL AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!

Thank you all for your lovely comments and support this year - you are all amazing.

Take care

Great image and great colouring...the stitching is the perfect finishing touch.

I finally got my extra desk built to the New Year will see more stitching on my cards...so much easier to manage if you don't have to lift the machine up out of the closet every time you want to sew something.
