The Christmas concert yesterday was fantastic so I'm really in the holiday mood now. Apart from a couple of special Christmas cards they are all made, written and most are posted. I seem to have been so busy the last couple of days but I did manage to get Hubby's card made and here it is.
I love the Cherry Kisses range from Pollycraft and as soon as I saw the new Jerry Kisses images I had to buy them, along with a few other new digis of course. Paula now has some Christmas images reduced to 49p so how could I resist some of those too. My friend Lynsey has set the challenge at Pollycraft this week and it is a colour challenge of blue, pink and brown. I wasn't sure that I could use pink on this card but once I had chosen the backing paper which is a pinky brown from DCWV the colours fell into place. I used Dusky Rose and Antique Pink Promarkers on his hat and the snowman's scarf. I didn't think Hubby would appreciate fuchsia or cerise! I'm hoping he likes all the glitter as well. After all, he is used to finding it everywhere, lol! I made the snowflakes using Marianne dies and MS punch and added card candy, a technique I admired on Lynsey's Winter Wonderland penguin card. The sentiment is also from Pollycraft.
I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Delicious Doodles Digi
Craft your days away Texture
Passion for Promarkers Anything goes
A Spoon full of sugar Christmas card
Simon Says Christmas, no red or green
Cards for men Christmas card
Pear Tree Designs Winter Wonderland
