A Christmassy Bathtime!!

Morning peeps!!!

After a bit of a pants weekend with the icky monthlies I am back in action and popping in with a little make for you this morning and I was feeling in the christmas mood so Kraftin Kimmie's Brigette got a christmassy bathtime!!!

She is the first Kraftin Kimmie stamp I have coloured up so I had to have a bit of fun with her!!

The papers on this one are just gorgeous.They are Glitz Joyeux Noel and I have to admit to a good 30 mins of 'stroke the paper' before I actually managed to cut into it!! he he he!! I cut round some of the gorgeous little pennants in the paper and tucked her under them.

Brigette is coloured up with promarkers and her bubbles got a little bit of Glossy Accents treatment :)

They are  corners are Cherry Lynn Lace Deco B and the twine is MME Merry and Bright.

I had some fun making the little charm too. I stamped it onto some shrink plastic using Jet Black Staz on and then coloured it up with some pencils. Then before  heated it to shrink it up I inked around the edges with a Memento Red Letter dewdrop inkpad. Then when it shrinks there is a lovely coloured deep edge around it. I tied a little bow and glued it on to finish it off.

The sentiment comes with Brigette and when I showed this card to my little Mo he said " wow, Mrs. Claus looks really happy in her bath after wrapping all those toys for santa mummy!!" so I was super pleased I had coloured her hair in grey!!! too cute!!!

I  have Scott all to myself today while Mo is at school. The weather is dreadful, its so dark and pouring with rain, ack!!  so I think we will just be pootling around at home but it will be lovely all the same. I am a bit behind with bloggy reading after spending most of the weekend in bed with my wheaty bag and painkillers so I will probably get some bloggy catching up done too!!

Right best get Mo sorted for school!!
