From our house to yours.....


Merry Christmas Everyone! 

The image on my card today is a very special one from The Prairie Fairy
It is priceless. 
Literally, this image, The Winter Cottage from Prairie Fairy Designs does not have a price on it. It does NOT have a price for a reason.............& if you want to know the reason, then head on over to THIS POST here. 

Basically, if you want the image, go and grab it form the above link (the download button is there) and then hop over to make a monetary donation of your choice to "The Warrior Fund". 
I colored my Winter Cottage & sky with copics. Trees with watercolor pencils. I added liquid applique & prisma glitter to resemble snow. I also added crystal effect to different areas to resemble icicles. 


I placed droplets of crystal effects on parchment paper the day before I compiled my card, to ensure that it was nice and dry so I could peel it off of there and attach it to my house with glue. Below are a few of the finer details. 




This card has since been presented to my BFF , The Prairie Fairy. 

Challenges for my card: 
Dutch Dare Card Challenge- make it shimmer
Little Darlings- Christmas
Saturday Challenge- anything goes
Crafts & Me- Christmas
Sketchy Colors- sketch (see below)- I flipped it
using earth tone colors from challenge #25
