Lazy Sunday morning?

Morning all,
December twelfth already - hope your preparations are coming along for Christmas. Have you plans for a lazy Sunday or are you braving the throngs at the shops in order to get those last few all important bits and pieces?

Click here for a lovely animated e-card, my Christmas card to you all!! MERRY CHRISTMAS! Try it, it's really cute.

Yesterday saw me completing my sketchie challenge which turned out to be the commissioned card for my friend's mum too which leaves me with a Christmas Carol or Song for I Love Pro Markers, challenge #44 and the Sunday themed challenge . . . . . . now, I've tried a Christmas Carol or Song theme once before and it was my one idea so this might take some thinking about! I tried to get cocky with this one and do a second card based on the Craft Mad & Loving It groups sketch AND combine it with this challenge too - hope you think it works. I took a C6 white card. I printed the words to the Twelve Days of Christmas song and mounted them on to a red layer before attaching to the base card. I then stamped (in memento tuxedo black) the inkadinkado partridge in a pear tree and also the Penny Black twelve days of Christmas images (1 & 12) before colouring in using Pro Markers. I cut the tree image fairly close and mounted on to a matching red layer then I mounted the two days images behind and cut round them so you can still see the words. I don't normally "do" a lot of white space but I thought that a colored and/or patterned background would obliterate the two images so there you have it. If you fancy having a go at the ILPM challenge and have pro markers then follow the link above and ..... Good Luck
