Getting in early for Christmas...

Well we are back in Mykonos with a boss's daughter and her friends on board and it is party central here!  We seem to keep collecting more people... I don't know where they are finding them!  Oh to have a bikini body!  For me the only good thing about being here is that the guests tend to eat out for dinner and sleep most of the day.  So I don't have to worry about cooking dinner... and we get to sleep in a little bit in the mornings... Yay!

Anyway, onto more crafty things... I forgot to post this card I made a little while ago from the new release Christmas images from Pollycraft.  This is one of the Swings and Slides kids from the Deck the Halls collection and it is called 'Ring out those bells'.










































































I have coloured this sweet wee boy with copics (see details below).  The flower is just circles of felt that I cut out, the tag is from Maya Road, and the seam binding is from The Ribbon Girl.  The argyle paper is from My Mind's Eye and the dots are from Crate Paper.  I {heart} argyle, although strangely enough I don't actually own any argyle clothing... I am always in search of the perfect argyle pattern cardi or sweater but for some reason I am never happy with the colours that are used on clothing.  *Sigh* Oh well... I will just have to make my own one day when I get back to my fabric stash in NZ.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp: Christmas in August
Paperplay Challenges: Christmas in August
Craft Us Crazy: Anything Goes in August

Here are the copics I used:
















Okay, well that's it from me for now... I'm off to make beds (the kids all had a Nanna nap this afternoon to be ready for partying all night), clean bathrooms (pretty soon they're all going to shower and beautify themselves) and make the crew some dinner!

Ciao!

Beautiful card Arabella. Your coloring is fabulous and I love your papers and layout. The little felt circle embellishment is so cute - I may have to try that one out.
