Just Inklined To Hop - A Blingy Christmas

Good morning all & welcome to the September 
Just Inklined Blog Hop.

This month, our host is Lori, who has chosen the theme
 "A Blingy Christmas"
If you're already hopping, you should have come from the lovely
Gaynor's blog! I'm sure she had something rather lovely to show you!
Here's my card.

I've used pearlescent card, glitter & silver bells as my bling!
The image I have used is Snowman Buddy!
He's so totally adorable I just had to have him!
Now, your next stop on the hop is the lovely Tammy
whom I am sure will knock your socks of with her creation!
To make the hop more fun, there are 2 hidden spot prizes along the way, 
chosen from those that leave comments on the blogs.
If you want to know a bit more about my card read on!

Here's a closer look at the image.
I coloured him in a little with my flexmarkers & promarkers.
I've had this card stock for so long but rarely use it!It actually works quite well
for colouring with alcohol markers.
I added s few little snowflakes which were punched from some
glitter card & added glitter to the edges of the image.

I decorated the inside a little too!

The little circles were embossed with a cuttlebug snowflake folder,
 which I've had forever, then glittered around the edges. 
The embossed lines were done using my score board.
Your next stop on the hop is Tammy's blog.
The hop order should you need it is as follows: 
Dawn (that's me!)
