Relax ... it's your special day.

Have you joined in with the Christmas Blog Hop, over at Wild Rose Studio? There are lots of fabulous prizes up for grabs along the way, and an awesome GRAND prize too. All you have to do is make a card using Dawny's sketch ( you can use any image you like) and collect a phrase from the hop. Simples!

Here's my card using Dawny's fab sketch.



I have used the wonderful Ronnie Relaxing image from Pollycraft. You can find him in Pollycraft's sidebar and all money raised from his sale goes to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
I paper-pieced the chair and then added Ronnie on top, coloured with Copics. The background was distressed with inks. I also added a little glossy accents to the biscuit packets and his cup.
