Santa's letter!!

Hello peeps!!!
Well, its definitely white outside my little craft room!! When I came out it was just starting to sprinkle with snow. It lasted a good 40 mins and its settled quite nicely!!
And this is what I came out to create!! isn't she a cutie?! she is Check my list twice from Tiddly Inks (and if you peek on the top of my sidebar you will see Christy is having a bit of a white out over in the Tiddly Inks store, there are fabby savings so its well worth a visit!!!)
I coloured her up with my promarkers ( berry red and crimson for her dress,ice grey 3 and 4 for her boots, sandstone and buttercup hair, vanilla and soft peach for her face and pastel beige for her huge list!!!!

I made this envelope style card in my cricut design studio over a couple of years ago and I still love it. The tags, liner and little letter are all cricut too.The gingham is my fav again from my funkyhand cd, Colour Me happy, contented coffee colourway this time I think!! The 'letter' part I embossed with my cuttlebug and the script folder and the writing on the tags is from my computer and good old word!!!! Martha punched branches, card candy and a bit of frayed burlap distressing on everything too for good measure!!!

Our car is playing up a bit today so I am hoping I will be able to start it nicely in the morning from under its snowy duvet to get Mo to school and me to work!!! lol!!! My friends at work live around 40 mins away and its a bit heavier with them so please keep them in your thoughts for safe journey's tomorow morning too.

I am going in now for a nice cuppa and a bit of TV before I go to bed so don't forget to go over to Tiddly Inks for a little retail therapy!!! lol!!!
Thankyou for popping in on me!!
hugs Lou xxxxxx
