MilkCoffee Showcase – Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Merry Christmas one and all. Here in the UK it is Boxing Day which usually means turkey sandwiches for dinner and a lot of clearing up. I had my family over which meant there were eight mouths to feed not including three very excitable dogs! Phew!

Anyway before I roll up my sleeves and start getting things back to some kind of normality I need to let you know that it is showcase day over on the MilkCoffee Blog  and our theme this time is Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

So my card today features the ever glamorous Tiffany and she is dressed to party with a festive glass of champagne in her hand.  She is a new image from MilkCoffee and isn’t she gorgeous.

Can't really see the glitter here but it is on her dress and necklace too!

I coloured her,for only the second time in my life, with Distress Inks and added glitter ‘fireworks’ for a New Year party feel.

The flowers are Spellbinders Bity Blossoms and Heartfelt Creations Daisy Patch and the vine leaves and cocktail glass are from Tonic.

Please pop over to the MilkCoffeechallenge blog to see all the amazing creations by my fellow team mates.  And to the shop to check out all the gorgeous images.

Hope you are having a very happy Christmas and that the New Year brings you all you could wish for! And a special payer goes out to all in the UK effected by the severe weather we are experiencing at the moment.  My heart goes out to you.

See ya!

Scribbly hugs
