It's christmastime at Karen's Doodles

Good morning girls
Thankfully we've had no more snow over the weekend but the pavements are likes sheets of glass. We went into town to get some Christmas shopping yesterday and it was treacherous underfoot, grabbed a few bits then decided to go for a pub lunch out of it lol
Thanks to everyone who played along with Karen's Doodles blog hop last week. You'll find a list of the winners over on the challenge blog and we've a nice easy challenge this week too. Make us a Christmas card, anything you like so long as you use one of Karen's images. Have you seen the adorable new Christmas images? Go check out the store.

I've gone for the CAS look this week. I printed the image twice, coloured with copic and then decoupaged the bow and berries. I then added some diamond glaze to the berries so they're all lovely and shiny. The letter are cut with my cricut at 3.5" with and without the shadow function so they too are quite prominent on the card. A few we gems finished it off.
So, there you have it girls, I do hope you'll play along and don't forget to enter your card into our Doodle Diva's gallery here for a chance to win some more images if your card is showcased.
