Willow with Hot Chocolate

Well, after yesterday's debacle I made certain that I posted this picture!

The weather has been so cold and damp today! I've had the heating on - in June! Can you believe it! Anyway, this wintry card and the Whiff of Joy image, 'Willow with Hot Chocolate,' seems appropriate. Brrrr!

I used Nitwits papers from the 'Joyful Hearts' and 'Still Joyful Hearts' collections, they are such a pretty blue. The doily is a Marianne die, and the label is from Spellbinders' Floral Doily Accents set. I added icicle stickles to both die-cuts.

Willow is coloured in Promarkers and her mug is Glossy Accented. The sentiment is by Lili of the Valley, stamped in Broken China Distress Ink. I also distressed the edges of the papers with Broken China.

The gorgeous lace is from The Ribbon Girl. The stars are from stash.

I'm entering three challenges: Whiff of Joy Challenge which provided the great sketch;

and The Ribbon Girl Challenge which is to use lace or ribbon;

and finally The Squirrel and the Fox whose theme is either winter or summer! There's also a DT call which I'm applying for!

So that's that! I'll be a footy widow tonight, so once I've tidied my craft hovel I shall be playing with paper! Isn't it great to be a grownup yet have an excuse for getting covered with glue, ink and glitter?!

Thanks for looking, and have a good evening.

love Mags B x

Gorgeous card Mags! Love the sparkle on your die cuts and great job with your distressing (I have the occasional go at that but mine always looks pants!)
We had not a bad day today, but I must admit I'm in my jumper and cosy socks now!
