A little bit of James!

Hello, thanks for visiting me again, I hope you're having a good week so far. We are now just about a week away from the arrival of Daisy's puppies - yikes! The poor wee soul is waddling around and we have her nesting bed all ready to go - watch this space for piccies of the new arrivals!
Anyway, onto my card and I had a lovely surprise recently as, knowing that I am a bit of a James fan, one of my lovely blog friends sent me a couple of images to play with. The little chap and his snowman friend are coloured with Promarkers, I have used one of the doily's that I recently got in Wilkinson's and have used papers that were a magazine freebie. The lace is from a local haberdashery and have layered it onto a section cut with an Xcut scalloped border punch. The tiny bits of holly are actually a Memory Box die, which fair enough does call itself "Mini Holly Leaves", but I think I underestimated just how mini they actually are, so I'm a bit disappointed with this die, but hey-ho! Oh, and the card candi is from my stash.
I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
 crafty calendar challenge - all things Christmas
wordplay saturday - Snowman

sparkles christmas challenge - have a beary Christmas
thanks again for stopping by, hope to catch up with your blog over the weekend xx


  1. Fabulous card brilliant image Ginny♥

  2. Smashing card Lisa and I love the cream and brown colour scheme. I know what you mean about being disappointed with dies, sometimes it's a bit of a gamble and they are much smaller in real life than anticipated. Still yours looks great and I'm sure it will get lots of use!! xx

  8. Hi Lisa - really fabulous card - that james bear sure is cute - must invest - next month maybe - lol xx

  9. Hi Lisa, I have a confession to make - as much as I love LoTV images - and I have a James bear, I've never inked him!!! I'm not that much of a bear person really. Having said that he is a cutie and you've made a really cute card from him.

    Looking forward to seeing those piccies of the puppies!

    Hope you have a good weekend,
