Wishing You a Cosy Christmas

I've had very little time to craft over the past few weeks and I don't see it changing in the coming weeks, however, I did manage to grab some time to do some simple colouring...

I've used a stamp set by Clearly Besotted called Cosy Christmas, did a bit of masking for the stocking and coloured with Prisma pencils.  

Its very simple in its design but I think it adds to the charm and will suffice until I can sit down and craft for a few hours rather than minutes stolen here and there.

The sentiment is from the same set.

  1. Your card is just stunning, Claire. The lovely image is beautifully coloured. xx

  2. Definitely a source of comfort. Thanks for sharing your card on the CASology Challenge blog.

  3. Oh my, this card is stunning! The motive is so well colored, that I can feel the heat coming out of the fireplace. There is nothing else to add. The sentiment and the motive matches perfectly.If I could, I would send you some time for crafting. :-)
    Hugs, Sonja
