Charlie waits by the chimney for Santa


Today's card is using Uptown Girl Charlie waits by the chimney. She's got a long wait for Santa :-P 
I was lucky enough to win her at Pixies Snippets Playground the other day!

I coloured her with Promarkers
Fussy cut her out - she really was a fussy madam too!
Mint paper and sentiment - Me to you Winter Wonderland pack
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Tinsel - Ribbon Girl
Other papers from stash

Coloured jingle bells were a gift - don't they look fab :-)
I cut the tree freehand from a snippet of pink card and added liquid pearls

Isn't she just fabulous!!

I followed this inspiration photo from Stamping Bella, managed to use nearly all the elements in the photo :-) love those colours!

Hope you all had a lovely crafty weekend!
