Busy card making

Hello ladies I hope you are all well. I have been very busy card making today I am going to show you a card I made a few days ago though. I have finally finished the wedding invites so have now moved on to my Christmas cards. 

I went along to Alexandra palace last weekend with my friend Fi and we had a wonder around. I have to say that although there was loads of lovely stalls and demos I actually found the whole day pretty stressful mainly because of the sheer amount of people there who kept barging in to me and Fiona and as Fiona is pregnant she had to stay away from a few of the stalls as she couldn't safely get near any, there was also no where to sit at lunch so we ended up sat on the floor like many other people. I did however get to the lili of the valley stall which I was very pleased with and bought two of the £12 stamp sheets and met Jacquei as she was demoing so that was really nice :) 

Here is a card I made using one of the stamps from the Christmas set and the sentiment also



I coloured the image with my copics and have cut out and coloured an extra foot, present and hat and stuck them on with foam pads to make it more 3D I think you can see that better in the picture below.


The papers are by Dovecraft from the let it snow collection I love these they are beautiful papers - they actually look better in person but I seem to have lost my nack when taking pictures recently. 
I used two different snowflake punches for the snowflakes and added some stikkles glitter glue to these :) 

I am entering this card in to the following challenges;
Creative inspirations - Christmas in September 
Charizma cards - Christmas Crafting
Winter Wonderland - A male Christmas card
On Stop craft - Snowflakes in September
