Ho Ho Ho


Sorry I haven't been to visit many of you this week. Like a lot of you I am so busy making Christmas cards I haven't had much time for blogging. Some of my friends wanted to buy some so I need to keep up production. I am only just managing to fit in some challenges with a few of them.

This digi image was a Friday freebie from Pollycraft a couple of weeks ago. Most sketches don't fit tall cards but the one at Passion for Promarkers was perfect. He was too big for a nestie so I cut an oval using my X cut shape cutter, inked the edge and doodled some silver stars for the challenge at Creative Card Crew. His beard and fur are covered with glitter flocking and I added some of the lovely messy faux snow at the bottom of the image. The sentiment is a stamp from my blog candy win which I coloured with PMs of course. The paper is DCWV, the swirl is Sizzix and I added some baubles to finish it off. The other problem with tall cards is that they look quite small on my blog so click on the image for a better view.

Other challenges are
Charisma Merry and Bright
Cute Card Thursday Glitter me Silly
Papertake Digi Sparkle
Digital Tuesday Holiday Wishes
One Stop Craft Cards for Kids

Thanks for stopping by. Will pop by your blog as soon as I can. I was given 2 awards this week, thanks Trimgym and Jo. I'd like to pass these on to all my lovely followers and all those who comment on my cards but don't follow. I really appreciate your comments.

Oh crikey, you just reminded me that Christmas is just round the corner. I haven't even done one Christmas card yet. Oooh Er! I think your card is great, and just right, as you say for a tall card.
