MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

OMG... I won...

the Christmas card challenge on Karen's blog.... SQUEEEEEL SQUEEEEEEL SQUEEEEEEEEL... whoooohooooo.... can you tell I'm excited!!! I NEVER win anything (now I'm not feeling sorry for myself..that's just how it goes :D) so my hair was standing on end when I got the e-mail to say my card was chosen last night and I am still on a HIGH this morning...can ya tell...rofl
I really loved making this card because apart from it being the first Christmas card I made... I love doing hybrid creations :D The papers are from Cen's stuff Forgotten digital kit which I printed out and this sweet little girly is "Ellie" ( created by June)... who will be available soon as downloads for cardmakers too :D
I did lots of hand doodling and paper curling...

added some lace and paper sculpted flowers and squirls...

and of course there had to be some bling :D
I will be doing a little tut on making a similar card soon... so do pop back for the details.
Thanks for looking and have a great day :D
hugs
Chris xx
