Jolly Josie...

Hi there, Susan here.....

A very special first challenge is being held over at The Stamping Bazaar for the OWH (Operation Write Home), for full details of the challenge and the simple but important rules from the OWH please call across to The Stamping Bazaar, you will be able to find out about some very special releases there as well. Our challenge ends Friday October 8th, so please this is a very special cause, try and join in and get those cards off to our hero soldiers!!!!

Now as a special surprise The Stamping Bazaar are releasing four new images, I have had the pleasure of using one of them for this card. I have used a great sketch from 'Crafts 4 Eternity' and cut out an aperture. All my backing papers are from Nitwits and all edges have been distressed both with inks and a distressing tool.

This wonderful cute image is called 'Jolly Josie' and is just one of the new releases that will be on sale at The Stamping Bazaar Store soon. She has been designed by our very talented Marina Neira. I used Pro-Markers to colour the image and then gently inked around the background.

The sentiment was made on my computer, and the holly I cut out myself and use tiny pom-poms as berries!!

This is one of my precious metal charms that I bought on holiday in the USA a few years ago. The ribbon is from our local market.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.
Love Susan
