White On White with a splash of Blue

Hello and how are you today?

I'm exhausted ... have had a terrible day with the little one.  Today all I heard was "NO!" and screams.  Everything involved a tantrum and the day was just no fun.  But.... on a happier note my new printer arrived today!!!  Yipppeeeeee I'm just hoping that Santa (aka DH) doesn't make me wait until Christmas day to open it.  Unfortunately he is at a work meeting tonight and still not home (it's after 8pm!) so it won't be getting set up tonight.  I'm super excited though ... will finally be able to print images without blue flecks through them and I will be able to print digi paper!  Yip yip yippppeeeeee

Anyway the real reason you are here is to see my card so here it is :)

 I have used the absolutely adorable Lilli Claire Party image from Tiddly Inks.  She is so sweet!  I love her because she is suitable for any celebration be it Christmas, Birthday or even a Sorry card.

I coloured her in copics using very minimal colours.  Just the usual ones I use for skin and hair and then for the white areas just C00 and her dress is B000 & B00.  I used a clear spica pen on the gift and some clear glitter glue on the bow.

The base card is embossed through the cuttlebug using a snowflake folder and the oval behind the image is embossed with some Christmas baubles.  I have used one of my new Marianne Designs dies behind that.

I have also threaded some ribbon through the base card using a new tool that I have from We R Memory Keepers called Sew Ribbon.  I had never seen these before but it was given to me by my lovely friend Shirley and I just had to try it out.
Oooohhhh the DH just got home and we are going to set the new printer up .... so bye bye for now .... ....... (jumping up and down with excitement)
