Japanese Christmas!

I was so excited when I saw this utterly adorable stamp from Lili of the Valley at the SECC at the weekend. Her name is Cho and I also snapped up some of the mesmerising mermaids and fabulous fairies.

I have a Japanese friend from my days as a professional singer, we have kept in touch over the years and this beautiful image is whisking it's way to her this year as her Christmas Card.  

I coloured Cho with Copics and Derwent soft pencils, my papers are from Basic Grey Wisteria 6x6 pad, flowers are a mixture of handmade and bought, the little poinsettia's are a Marianne Designs Die.  The sentiment was hand written and says Merry Christmas. The half doily is from Tim Holtz on the edge distressed Doily die. 

Thank you for popping in to visit with me, your comments mean the world to me.

I would like to enter the following Challenges

Lili's little Fairies Challenge:  Would love to see a Christmas card for the Girls.
Basic Grey Challenge:  Have the theme of Anything Goes, all my papers are Basic Grey.
