Squared Manger DT Card

Hello, and welcome!

It's cold and wet, here in my little part of the world....hmmmmpphh!
Don't mind the cold......heating's on, and the air is filled with the gorgeous scent of Yankee Candles (Christmas Cookies...what else?...ha!), so I'm in my ickle craft room, tryin' to put a dent in my Christmas card two done, so far, so not bad........tryin' to stay away from the pile of ironing that keeps leapin' out of the basket, every time I pass it......where's Tanys when I need her?....she always did most of my ironing, so she has no business going to live in Ireland....wonder how much it would cost to charter a helicopter drop, once a week?

Anyways, I've got another DT card for Stretch 'n' Bubbles who happen to be having a HUGE sale, so pop along and snag a few treats, why dontcha?

This ickle gem is called Squared Manger.....

I love the way Alison drew such a simple image.........I wanted to keep it simple, so coloured up with the trusty Promarkers, and added a touch of sparkle.....placed the image on an embossed card base.....

added a few die-cut snowflakes with a little glitter, and some white pearls.......

And there's a really sweet ickle Christmas
Hope you are trawlin' on with your own Christmas makes........if you've got time on your hands, come and give me a hand...haaaa!
