Veronica's Christmas Party

Hello all, hope you're all well.

I'm back.  At last.  It seems that the first half of this year has been ridiculously busy, but hopefully things are now settling down and I can finally get around to some crafting.

Today I have a Christmas card to show you.  A friend of mine gave me a pack of some new colouring card to try out and I am very impressed.  The whole reason this turned into a Christmas card is that I really wanted to put this card through its paces so used reds to colour.  Absolutely no bleeding anywhere.  It's called Copic X-Press It Ultra Smooth Blending Card and you can get it from  It's brilliant.  Now my colouring is a little shaky as I'm out of practice, but this blending card is fabulous and I highly recommend it.

Anyhoo, onto my card.  The stamp is from Stamping Bella and is called Veronica by Mo Manning.  She's been coloured with copics on the X-Press It card.  The backing papers are really old and I'm not sure where they are from.  I added a Cheery Lynn Holly Flourish die cut and some red seam binding.  That's it.  Nice and simple and postable!!

Sorry about the picture.  We have a new camera (as my husband left our old one up a mountain!) and I've also had to load it onto my husband's computer and haven't yet worked out how to crop it.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope to see you all again really soon.  Take care.

Big hugs
