E is for Eskimo

Good Morning,

We had a super time at the fireworks display last night but boy was it cold!  I forgot both my phone and camera so unfortunately I didn't get any photos but take my word for it, they were spectacular!  Today I have my second installment of CBT, it was quite slow moving last week so I'm reserving judgement until after today's session but hopefully it will go ok.

Ok onto my card.  Today is day five of the A-Z Christmas Challenge so it's the letter E and I've gone for E for Eskimo!  I've used the last of my Mo Manning Eskimo Kisses toppers, I really must source some more or maybe even go for some of the digis and have a go at colouring them myself!  I love Mo Manning's artwork but I'm not sure that my colouring skills would do them justice.

My papers are Docrafts Christmas in the Country 12 x 12's, I've had them for over a year and I'm ashamed to say they've never been used before now.  I've opened the pack and admired them quite a few times but not got as far as using them lol.  The sentiment tag is from the same range.  As the image takes up quite a lot of space I've kept it simple and all I've added is a button tied with paper cord, some red ric rac and some coloured pearls.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
