Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you had a good weekend.

I've had this little chap half coloured on my desk for a while and when I saw the latest MFT sketch challenge I though he would be ideal for it , so I had a play yesterday and finished him off.

This is the sketch I followed:

I coloured the image with copics and added snippets of red across the middle and a snippet of striped paper from an old LOTV Christmas pad. I embossed a small snowflake onto the larger bauble and stamped and fussy cut 2 small holly sprigs to  stick either side of the sentiment, which is embossed in white and is from a different MFT set.  The whole thing was stuck onto a red 5" x 7" card blank (much neglected, I must use them more!).

I would like to enter these challenges:

Allsorts Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Di's DigiDesign - Handcoloured image

So cute! One of my favourite Christmas sets too - your colouring is perfect Lynne.

Sorry it's taken me a while to comment - Dudley took a downward turn and has been quite poorly with what our vet says is gastroenteritis. We still feel it was the tick medication that caused it - toxins are a known cause of gastroenteritis. Thankfully he seem to be properly on the mend having had a jab to stop him being sick plus other meds to be taken daiy including anti-biotics and of course all our attention has been focused on him these past few days.
