Are You Ready My Friend - The Paper Shelter

Good morning everyone and welcome to my 2 new followers. I'm back from my Egyptian holiday, unfortunately my suitcase isn't yet :).  Hopefully it will arrive today.  I don't know why I go on foreign holidays as it always takes me a week to recover and yet again I have left my mojo behind somewhere.  Don't know why I am moaning as it was a great holiday really, but still way too hot.

I have been looking at the devastation in America at this time and hope none of you or your friends and family have been caught up in this tragedy.

I feel as if I have cheated a little with today's card as I have used one of the fab Paper Shelter pre coloured images 'Are You Ready My Friend'. Great to use if you need a card in a hurry or are lacking your own inspiration. This is one of their new gorgeous Christmas images. Sorry about the quality of the picture, my good camera is still in my suitcase.

The great thing about these images is that they come with or without the pre-coloured background.  I did decoupage a couple of layers to give a little more depth and mounted onto a couple of layers of Bazzill basics with some gold peal off edges for a little more sparkle.  I added WOC corners and poinsettia flower. 

Glamour dust and white flower soft for his beard and the snow and red glitter again for more lift. Gems and leaves from my stash.

The Paper Shelter also provides great inserts to match the front of the card.

Our challenge this week #88 is Anything Goes so I hope you enter.  The amazing prize as always is $30 to spend in the shop if you use a TPS image and 3 digi's of your choice with any other image. 

I hope you pop over and see the fab cards the other DT members have produced.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look and I promise to get around the blogs today to catch up on what you have all been creating.

This is such a cute image! :) Love the funny expressions and great matching details.

It isnt really cheating to use pre-coloured images or toppers - sometimes we all need to save a little time - especially for christmas cards - lol :)

Glad you had a great holiday and I hope your luggage turns up real soon :)
