Country Companions At Christmas

Good evening,

It's a very windy Inverness tonight but at least we have been lucky enough not to experience any flooding or blizzards (yet?).  Hope everyone is having a good weekend.   I spent a good while last night trying to get my blog sorted out with a new template but unfortunately I lost some of my gadgets/widgets??? on the way, I think I've restored most of them now though, phew!  Iona and I were busy doing some card making this morning, you can see her card on her own Docrafts gallery under username Iona_Crafts, mine is below.

This is an image I coloured weeks ago and then misplaced it :(  luckily enough I found it while looking for something else entirely lol.  It's a Country Companions stamp from Docrafts and I've coloured it with my ProMarkers.

For the layout I've followed the sketch for the current challenge over at the Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge.  I love working from a sketch I've no idea why I don't do it more often.  I've used papers from the Lucy Cromwell At Christmas range and inked all the edges with Tim Holtz Bundled Sage Distress Ink.  The sentiment is also a stamp from the At Christmas range .  All I've added is a button threaded with bakers twine, pearls and glitter dome stickers.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend,

Shona xx
