WEEK 27 on the GlitterGeeks.blogspot-Let It Snow

Week 27 DT work was entitled Let It Snow and Sponsored by the lovely Nikky Hall from PolkaDoodles.

I decided to make something different-me different...never! LOL I used to have a Gorjuss Girl kit many moons ago and it was a theatre type card. I only wish I had kept one to use as a template!!!! So, I began with my ruler and knife and made my own
as you can see this template took alot of battering before I eventually got it right.

Rather than use card to make the characters stand. I used acetate and cut slits into the sides. I used Polkadoodles Christmas Boutique papers and stamps. My trusty Flexmarkers to colour and added detail with a white Sakura pen.

So, here is the card : Hope you like it :)

Alot of work, but I liked it when I had finished and decided to make one for my BFF in Finland Anna Riitta...this time I added Miss Scarlett :)

Ok, best get on, stilllllll have more Christmas cards to make as the low tack tape...wasn't that at all and ripped all the work I had done. My wrists are sore and will be happy when this batch are finished believe me.They are not perfect but will have to do as definately not making any more! 
On the plus side all presents but one, are bought. I love wrapping so can't wait to get started doing that.

Thanks for reading and hope you have a hassle free week....presents, cards, tree up, shopping etc impossible I know but please try. 
Love and Christmas Spirit to you all.....
