Today I am here to show you my latest creation for Inky Impressions. But I am no longer on the challenge team, I am now the DT co-ordinator for Inky's Inspirational blog. Please pop over & have a look back at what fabulous creations the Inspirational DT have created!

So my creation today....I made for a friend who always suffers at Christmas, as they lost their Mom when they were younger just before Christmas Day. I know I hate the time in between Christmas & New Year as my Nan passed away then when I was younger...it's horrible.

Anyhoos enough depressing natter, on with my card. I have tried a new technique with my colouring & to be honest I love how her face has come out. I tend to blend until you can't see the shading without really looking, so this time I have stopped lol!
