Blue SHADE Blues

In my new found capability of being able to sit down and make cards, you will see from the entries I am about to post that I have been a busy girl today.

Got up this morning and after having a wash, breakfast and getting dressed, placed a soft, plump cushion on the kitchen stool and sat there with my children colouring in images and crafting cards... yippeeeeee {she cries} and this is one of the cards I created today.

I thought it was about time I made a Christmas card as I haven't been doing the 'Rudolph Day' so far this year so anyway, here's a very blue Christmas Card for 2010.

As all you die hard Mo fans can probably tell, I have merged two of Mo's images together and then I have coloured it all in in ONLY ONE SHADE OF BLUE!!! This little piece of inspiration came from my Inspiration Jar this morning... I have used my 'STARS' border punch by Martha Stewart to decorate the bottom edge and have added some ribbon and a sentiment. The 'jingle all the way' wording was a free download from Create with TLC (thank you). The background, again blue, was run through my Big Shot with a 'dotty' EF.

Please feel free to leave a comment if you like my card, or even if you don't. I like to hear constructive criticism, it makes me work harder to please you all.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs, Fae xxx

This is just a fabulous card! I love the colour, very chilly and very appropriate for a winter card!! xx

Ahhh thanks girls, I was really pleased with how this card came out. I wasn't sure about all of the blue at first but then I have had so many lovely comments on Facebook that I decided it can't be that bad and it does loo so much more striking in real life. The photo is too dark really to see it's true colour.
