Singing for sunshine

Morning all - and a big welcome to new and old followers alike - its always lovely to have you looking at my work and leaving some comments - so thankyou!

Today the sky is blue and the sun is shining so it looks like the hedgies in my card must have done a good job at singing for sunshine:

I made this card - obviously for Christmas!!!! - for the snoflake challenge that I take part in on docrafts - its a bit like the winter wonderland blog - helps you to make up your Christmas cards throughout the year so that you don't get this rush on in October/November or even December. A great idea I think - but maybe that's just me trying to be too organised!

Anyhoos - onto the card - the image is a penny black image - I've stamped it and coloured in promarkers and then added glitter. I've cut the dry image out using an xcut die and mounted the whole thing on a card I covered in free paper from I think CMPC last year. Added a bow and a sentiment and bobs your uncle - there we have it! So what do you think?
I'm entering this into the singalong challenge at Penny Black this week and my snoflake challenge on docrafts. I may also enter it into the it takws two over at winter wonderland since there are two hedgies there!!!

And that's all for today - thanks in advance for any comments - and thanks for looking at my candy - hopefully I'll be at that 50 mark soon!

Love and hugs
