Christmas/Birthday 1 a week Challenge

Good morning, another week ahead, where did the weekend go? Weekends never seem long enough, and I never get as much crafting done as I plan to. Infact this weekend was even less productive, with only one card to show.

I made this card for my weekly christmas/birthday 1 a week challenge, run by the lovely Karin.
I have used one of my favourite Whiff of Joy stamps. The papers are a DCWV christmas stack, buttons from Basic Grey 2 scoops collection, ribbon from Poppicrafts and flowers are Prima.

I coloured in using the pro markers which im still trying to get to grips with and I used stickles to glitter her wings.
I really need to get my skates out today as I have a thank you card to make, 2 birthday cards and some images to stamp up. I want to know how some of you ladies manage to get so many beautiful cards made, almost daily?!

Beautiful card!
I love your wonderfully coloured image. Your papers and embellishments work beautifully.
I know just what you mean about thinking you have loads of time to craft at the weekend. Somehow it doesn't come off. Weird or what.
