When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

Christmas but different!

I've not been well, this has been a right pain....literally. But no virus was going to stop me colouring so while resting on my bed, I set up my bed table and got colouring. It helped. Took my mind off how I was feeling, but you see.....when I'm bad my creative juices flow. I get so many ideas, I have to jot them down as I really don't feel like doing anything. However I did create this card - 

I was bored of making 'normal' Christmas cards and have set myself the challenge this year of making some different cards. I think this meets that. It's different. The colours are bold, funky and not typical. I love it!

It's an 8 x 8 card base which I have covered with Coredinations card that I have embossed with the music embossing folder. The image is from Some Odd Girl and I have coloured it with a mix of Graph It & Copic markers. I added ribbon and usual bits of bling and Christmas sentiments.

Here's a closer look at the image -

Due to this image being more than just characters, it has accessories that I have had to colour and coordinate, I want to enter it into the Graph It Marker blog challenge  and for that, the challenge is to colour accessories. I think I have coloured quite a few in this image!!

Let me know what you think of my latest creation. Right I'm off to rest up and listen to the rest of the footy (Was supposed to go as we are at home, but no way I could.)

Take care Zo xx
