Winter Church - Whiff Of Joy Guest Designer

Good morning lovely peeps,
Today I have the huge honour of sharing with you my first card as a Whiff Of Joy guest designer :)
I have inked up one of the beautiful stamps by Elizabeth Bell for my first card, I loved this stamp the first time I saw it, goodness knows why it has taken me so long to actually get around to using it but that's me I guess, see it, love it, buy it, put it away in a basket and buy more lol.
I have coloured the Winter Church with copics as usual and added lots of lovely glitter snow and then added a little more glitter to the snow as well, not that it really needed it but you can't over do the sparkle at Christmas lol.
The gorgeous Stars die is also from Whiff Of Joy and I've die cut them using Simon Says Stamps kraft woodgrain card stock to add even more texture. The papers are by Maja Design, the doily is from my stash and everything else is linked at the end of my post :)
The copic colours I've used are -
Winter Church - W4, W2, W0 / YR21, Y00, Y0000, trees - YG95, YG93,YG91, garland - R89, R59 / YR16, YR14
I thought I would leave you with a chuckle today and share some pics of me being brave and getting on hubby's motorbike! Yes I did it, it's only taken me 28 years to get on the back of hubby's bike, best he doesn't hold his breath waiting for it to happen again because it's not going to happen lol.
Thankfully I only went for a short ride as Jodie wanted to ride with hubby for Jamie's ride to Cheddar Gorge as she has lost her confidence a bit on the bike which is such a shame as she does love it, but to be honest I was one very, very relieved girlie, phew lol.
Thanks for stopping by
