 Good Morning Everyone,

A new challenge is starting at As You Like It and we are asking which you prefer out of Fur, Feathers or Scales.

I have chosen fur both colouring wise and in real life.  There are so many cute images to colour and when our two dogs have been groomed they are just so soft and fluffy.

I have used a Whimsy stamps digi image called Christmas Mouse, coloured with copics.  I don't think the pens agree with the heat we've had lately as they weren't working that well and getting a bit sticky.

I cut a piece of white card the same size as the base and used snippets of Christmas papers in reds and greens for the background. I inked the edges of the stitched rectangle with a red pen and then adhered to the background.  The little snowflakes on the bauble were heat embossed in white.

The sponsor for this challenge is:

We hope you can join in and show us your favourite out of the 3 possibilities.

I would like to enter:

ABC Christmas - O for Old (background papers)
Snippets Playground - Christmas snippets used for the background
Allsorts - Christmas in July
DisDigidesign challenge - Christmas in July
Papercraft challenge - Christmas in July

Thank you for visiting and I am pleased it's getting a bit cooler here in the UK.  I don't feel like doing anything when the temperature is so high, not even crafting!
