Just Inklined To Hop - Christmas

Good morning all & welcome to this month's
Our host this month is Karen L who has chosen Christmas as the theme!
If you're already hopping, you'll have arrived from the lovely Karen J's
blog! I bet she had something stunning to show you!
Without further ado, here is my card

I've made a twisted easel using Snowman Buddy he's just so adorable!
I think he'll feature on many of my cards this year!
Now, if you're anxious to hop on, your next stop is Tammy's blog.
Before you go, don't forget to leave a little blogger love at each stop,
you just never know where the spot prizes might be hidden!
If you want to know a little more about my card, read on!

Here's a closer look at my cute little guy!
I've coloured him up using flexmarkers & promarkers.
Cut him out using a die & inked the edges with a promarker.
I used a blender to soften the edges.
The papers are my latest find in Lidl! I just love popping in 
for a mooch around every now & then, as you just never know when
crafty bits might pop up!

The sentiement was done on the pc using a font which you can get 
for free here. I love this one for Christmas cards.
I have added a touch of glitter using a Sakura Clear Star pen
but I don't think you can see it very well in the photo's.
The embellishments I have used are some twine, a little
silver Christmas tree charm & a die cut snowflake!

A look at the fold from another angle!
Now remember if you're hopping, your next stop is Tammy
but, don't forget to comment along the way!
