Christmas card

Hi bloggers,

Zeenya started Middle School today... sixth grader!!! I guess I will come to terms with the fact that she is not my little girl anymore but am happy that I have a girl friend in her. Thank God for daughters!

This is a Christmas card I made a while ago with the lovely stamps that Sandra sent me - thanks, Sandra!
There is a touch of glitter here and there which does not show in the picture and neither does the metallic silver grey card stock!
 I have coloured the image with my Darwent water colour pencils.
The silver border that you see on the top and bottom was sent to me by Shirley-Anne.
Thank you, dear ladies for your generosity!
The stars, gifts at the bottom and the bling is from my stash.

Isn't the stamp cute? And look how big it is - tells such a nice story as well.


Hugs and happy crafting,

Monica

Wow Monica...this is so pretty! I can actually see the shine of the card stock. Love all the little embellishments!
Hope Zeenya has fun on her day at school. They really do grow up fast.
