Whiff of Joy christmas shimmer :o)

Evening, not often you get a late night visit from me but thought I would pop on and post my card for Whiff of Joy's birthday celebrations!!!! . Rach has made a gorgeous sketch for us all to follow and I just love it!

Yet another christmas card .... I am getting a nice little collection now and am so much more organised than last year. I really wanted to use this gorgeous image and also wanted my trusty pink/green combo. So, I thought if I am using non traditional colours I might as well use some of my favourite papers too (which have absolutely nothing christmassy about them at all, lol).

Now I have to confess to being in love with something new. Now I know you all use this and I am probably the last person in the whole of blogland to use it but OMG ...... I am officially in LOVE with Cosmic Shimmer! I have coloured my poinsettas with a pale pink copic and then sprayed to my hearts delight. Ooooh I just love the shimmer and cannot believe the difference it makes. I now want loads more colours so will be getting some asap!
Ok, I think I have probably gone on a little bit too much about that but you know where I am coming from .... gonna shut up now cos my poor tooth is still playing up. I have managed to get an appointment at the dentist for Thursday morning to start my treatment (sob sob, I hate pain).
