Forever Friends Christmas Card

Hi all what a miserable rainy day. So been enjoying myself crafting. Chloe my 4 year old, yesterday decided to cut her own hair - omg I thought I am going to see what she be like with short hair. When John took her to hairdresses he could not let them cut much of length but got them to tidy it up as best as they could. Which I am pleased just means hair tied up until it grows back into nice length again.

Well the card is Forever Friends image coloured in with pro-markers and finished off with glitter and flowers. Backing papers from papermania Festive Frolics and Fizzy Moon Festive Fun.

I am entering this card into Sweet Sketch Wednesday and Snoflake Christmas card Challenge on Docrafts
