Time to trim the tree

This month's image from the Outlawz Monthly Progressive challenge is from LeAnnesWorld and is called Daisy.  Perfect for the first page of December in my yearly journal of memories and reminders.

Before I printed the image, I added a border of stars and fireworks.  Once printed I coloured
Daisy with copic pens, adding some glitter to her hat, the tree and the fireworks.  Handwritten sentiment to reminding me I need to put the tree up.

The reflection of the Murry River is both beautiful and calming. 

This mighty river, largest in Australia covering 2508kms.  It makes up most of the border between New South Wales and Victoria, with the  border being the top of the bank on the Victorian side. None of the river is actually in Victoria

Southern Girls November Christmas Challenge

Christmas challenge this fortnight, the sponsors are:


For this challenge I am using an image called "Hope" from The Paper Shelter.  One of my favourites that I have used before., this time round I used the coloured version of the image and the background paper.

I have digitally created the face of the card, using the background paper and the coloured image.  I have added a shadow behind the girl (coloured image) and worked in a shadow behind the star she is holding.  I have also typed on a Christmas message.

Once printed and cut out, I added some diecut lace, pearls and coloured cardstock to finish the card.
