Sledging Hedgies

The light was terrible today, and this piccie is rather faded!

This is for the ABC Christmas Challenge which this time is 'T is for Tree.'

I've used 2 tree papers but the one on the right is covered by the image - oops! These Penny Black hedgies are having such fun! I cut the purple mat with my Woodware Fingerguard trimmer, which comes with various slot-in cutters: this one is Twist. It's meant to show the speed that the sledge is travelling at!

Papers are DCWV Rose Tinted Christmas and Christmas Blues - so pretty, and a change from red and green (though I love red and green, too!)

The snowflakes are a Marianne die, the gems were a pressie from my daughter, and I've glamour-dusted the snowflakes and the snow and fur on the image.

I added the little tree stickers on the sentiment because I thought the card wasn't 'tree-y' enough, but I rather like them!

I am so enjoying having my craft room back!

Thanks for looking and have a good evening!

luv, Mags x
