Black and White Christmas

Good Morning!!

Hmmm, I'm not 100% sure that black and white is Christmasy, but hey, rules are meant to be broken!!

Today's card uses Girl with Presents, one of the Gayle Bond digi's available from Scrapbook Sisters

Here's my card

The papers are by Kanban, sentiment by Personal Impressions (I think!) ribbon by Berrisfords, Lacey circle nestie and a Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder

It hasn't picked up AT ALL (!!!) on the photo, but I have added a touch of stickles to the trim of her coat, had, gloves and shoes.  Hmmm - I must take note of what Mary J and Julie have been saying this week about taking photos, this pic DOES NOT do her justice!!  It doesn't help that I never get to take my pics in natural daylight... grrrr!!, and that I still haven't got myself a light box, despite saying I will for ages now...I can't help it, I see nice papers and they win every time :-)

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges please

The Stamp Man - Bingo Recipe (I've used Stitches/Ribbon/Die Cut)
Kaboodle Doodles - Tic-Tac-Toe (Digi-Ribbon-Embossing)

That's it from me today - I promise to really try to post something that isn't black and white tomorrow :-)  In the meantime, have a fabulous weekend, thanks for stopping by

This looks wonderful Sue!!!!
Have you discovered the delights of Picasa? I was having lighting issues but this had helped loads,got me more than a tad muddled at first but then you are much more skilled at the computer than me. Would thoroughly recommend you give it a try,I've even managed to add a watermark when editing my photos this week! X
