They just had a new release and we are so lucky, because Karen is giveaway Christmas stamps to our lucky MMSC29 Bonus Winner this week. Woo Hoo, just in time for Christmas :) Thank you Karen.

This weeks card was a lot of fun for me as I just love this image.  I saw it on a card on Susan's (aka One4Joy) gallery on SCS and she stamped off a copy for me.  It is called 'The Naughty Girls Choir' and that little girl second from the left reminds me so much of my DD2 when she was that age - she is famous for standing there just like that and when people would look at her and say how pretty she was, she would scream at the 'NO YOU LOOKIE AT ME!' ...and they wouldn't!!  Our friends still remember it to this day!!

I have coloured the image with wet and dry chalks - I sponged around the edges as I wanted this card to have an aged look, and we all know I just L-O-V-E to sponge!! LOL!  It is layered onto some DP with Christmas greetings on, this has also been sponged and backed with black CS.

The top four panels have been done on the computer and each word cut out and sponged, then layered onto sponged cream CS, which is in turn backed with black CS.  The lower four panels have had music stamped on them and then they are layered onto black CS.  This is all mounted into the green DP

and there you have it - one 'Naughty Girls Choir'!!  Can't you just hear them singing ' Joy to the World!!' Especially that adorable one with all that attitude (she lives with me in real life!)
