Carols for Christmas

Our challenge on the Polkadoodles challenge blog this week is Ribbons and Bows. I think this extra wide ribbon will fit the bill. This is a BIG card - 8" x 8". I made it as a sample for Nikky to show on Create and Craft TV in the UK, but forgot to put it in the parcel with the other cards, so here it is. Big cards work best for TV samples - you make a regular sized card, the presenter whips through them at 100 cards a minute, blink and you've missed it.

I used the sweet carol singers from Magical Winter and added some letter stickers to their hymn sheets. They all have a pompom on their hats. The inking was done with dark green chalk ink - hasn't photographed well, it looks dirty brown on this photo   




Talking of singers, look what was clustered outside the door of the room where I craft every Thursday with a group of friends - a regular frogs chorus. Aren't they cute? Each one was only around 1/2" long or less. I almost adopted the big guy........

This is just fab Enfys! Love the way you've put the wording on the hymn sheets. I saw Nikky on C&C earlier today with some fab CDs and DT cards. xx

Every time you walked around the corner of the condo we were renting, the would hop away at an amazing rate of speed..all of them teeny weeny little things..it was crazy!! There had to be a nest nearby!!

Love the card, that 8"x8" card does look amazing with the wide ribbon and larger images.
The frogs chorus looks so cute, were they all waiting for your 'bugs' to come out to play? lol.
