Hobby House Inspiration

Hope you've all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to a Happy and Crafty 2014.

Sorry I've been MIA recently, but with the extra demands on my time in the run up to Christmas both at home and at work I just haven't had the time to blog and craft.

I'm hoping now that my 'normal' routine has resumed I'll be able to get organised and fit in more crafting.
I haven't specifically made any resolutions, but I think getting organised and less procrastination is definitely  something I need to work on!

Anyway after all that rambling I'm here to show you my inspiration piece for the Hobby House. 
It's one of my Christmas cards. I still didn't make enough! My intention is to enter a Christmas card challenge every month, that way I'll have at least 12 next Christmas!

The image is Winter Fairy from Wee Stamps and has been coloured in copics. I used Go Kreate's Frilly #5 to create the base shape of the card and the papers are from Craftwork Cards' Christmas Post 8x8 pad.

Dies used:

Marianne Creatables Christmas Tree, Fence & Bird
Poppy Stamps birdcage
DooHickey tag

Copics used:

Skin : E0000, E000, E00, E11, E21, E93
Hair: E43, E44, E47, E49
Wings: E81, E84, E87, E50, E51, E53
Fur: E43, E42, E41, E40
Boots: E89, E87, E84, E81
Reds: T5, R39, R29, R27, R24, R22
Leaves: YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91

Hobby House products:

Wee Stamps Winter Fairy (available as a topper too)

Whilst I'm here I'd just like to let you know we have a new challenge over on our challenge blog and this month the theme is
