Fireside Friends

Now it`s autumn, I thought I`d better make a start on my Christmas cards, here is the first of the many I need to make.

I`ve used one of the new LOTV images which I just adore, coloured with distress inks and markers and I`ve added a bit of glossy accents to the clock face and puppies nose and a bit of stickles diamond to the stocking tops and flames.

The tartan card is from Kanban. Also used Tim Hotz Tattered Pine cone die, Martha Stewart holly punch, Go Kreate die for the card shape, Marianne Creatables Pine tree die.

The flowers (helibores I think they are) from WOC and the ribbon and berries are from my stash, The sentiment is SU, (I have LOTV sentiments on my wish list when pennies will allow)
The label is a Nesties die.

I`d like to enter this in this weeks LOTV challenge which is "Anything but a Square"

I will give this card to one of my friends who is a non crafter, she loves to receive my cards, but last time I gave her an easel I went round her house afterwards to find it propped up on her mantel in a very odd fashion as she didn`t know how to display it!! If you`ve come accross this problem then the link below is a solution.
I found these on a web page that you print out and stick to the back of your easels to help the uninitiated !!
