Simply Christmas......

Morning peeps sorry for not getting round many blogs but I'm snowed under, well not literally but ts starting to get busy and we've now got to open at 8.30 am until 6.00pm so I'm just getting back home ready to dash off to the train station and pick up my son who is studying until quite late at University, hes been going in at 6.00am and geting back at 7.00pm,we eat a late tea and then fall into bed pooped......only just over a week to go and then we can chill and sleep.
Thought I'd show a simple Christmas card today, the image is from Delicious Doodles I've used Prisma pencils to colour the image in with a smidge of Sakura pens for highlights, the sentiment is a stamp from Tim Holtz embossed in gold......, the die is a Marianne one and the papers are Papermania.

Hi Sweetie, haven't been around for a while, am still pretty busy at work. Man, I'm desperately awaiting xmas, not because I really love it, but to have 3 whole days off and get some rest! I work in a lawyers office, corporate and commercial team and all firms want to buy another before the year ends...it's pretty crazy these days...
but i am bla-bla-ing...actually I wanted to comment this lovely card of yours... your Prisma-colouring-skills are amazing! Love the shape of this card too.
Take care and hopefully you get some relaxed days!
Hugs, Alessandra
