Happy Christmas from Doodleicous Diva Christine!!

Hi All...

I know it's soooo close to Christmas and that you'll all be mad busy, but I'm popping in to introduce myself as one of the new Doodleicous Divas!  I'm so excited to be joining this fab fun team..  and to work with Melyssa's GORGEOUS images!!

Now a bit about me...  my name is Christine, and I live in a beautiful part of Yorkshire, UK. As we've only lived here for 5 years - we love exploring when we get time.   I am a very young-at-heart crafter who has a very patient and wonderful OH who always supports me in my love of this fabulous hobby. He often waits around for hours in craft shops - and never gets impatient!  I also have two very beautiful grown up daughters who I'm so very proud of - but I don't have grandchildren... yet!! 

 I've been a crafter for many years, I think I've gone through all the phases including embroidery and jewellery making.. but my passion has to be papercraft!  I would say my style has to be classed as 'girlie' - as I have a tremendous love of pink with lots of added glitter and bling!  I love experimenting with shading and use mostly Copics - but would like to properly learn to use the Distress Inks and Inktense pencils which lie in my crafty stash!! 

But enough about me and onto my card...

I created this card for a lovely friend of mine and chose to use Ugg Leah available amongst the other fabulous images in the Christmas section of the shop HERE.

I used an embossing folder for the snow..  then added a bit of torn card for the snow bank she's standing on... of course, it had to have added glitter!  I added more pink card edged with a Martha Stewart die..  a bit of twine with a snowflake charm... then a PC generated sentiment and it was done.

That's it from me for today....  I'd love it if you'd like to pop by my blog here - Cards by Christine - to say hello or for more details of any of the cards I make.

All that is left is for me to wish you and yours a 


Big hugs
Christine x
