Warm Wishes on a Cold Day

The snow has gone only for the rain to arrive, and it's a cold, dull, wet day! I struggled to get a decent picture of my card, which is why it's a little fuzzy (I don't like to use flash). It's the kind of day where you just want to curl up on the sofa with a hot chocolate and forget everything that's going on outside!

So, my card today... well I coloured this cute Bugaboo image a couple of weeks ago but never got around to making a card with it... I thought it was a shame not to so I've made a fairly clean & simple card using my Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page punches. The image is done with Promarkers... I love these browns and blues! Finally I stamped the 'Warm Wishes' at each side of the image and added the little buttons. I'm entering it into the Catch The Bug Challenge which is 'Anything Goes', Passion For Promarkers Mega Christmas Challenge which is also 'Anything Goes', Paper Take Weekly 'Red & Green MUST NOT be seen' and A Spoonfull of Sugar 'Christmas Cards'.

Ok, better get on with some work now... take care!

Coucou !
Brrr il fait froid aussi ici, il gèle, mais il y a un rayon de soleil, ce n'est pas désagréable, du moins vu de l'intérieur avec un bon chocolat chaud héhé, lol !
Quelle jolie carte, j'adore la bordure, et les couleurs sont superbes !
Bisous !
