New DT challenge

Hi all

well - I am soooo proud to announce I've been chosen as a DT for another challenge blog.  Sentimental Sunday have kindly picked me along with some other ladies to form their DT for the coming few months.  I note that some of those lovely ladies have joined the blog - so welcome!  I'll pop over to yours later and join up!  Can't wait for some new challenges in 2014!

Well Christmas is almost upon us, only 6 more sleeps until the big day... I might just get everything wrapped and given out by then, although its gonna be tight!!

I've got one more Christmas card to make and write and then I'm done - so I thought I'd share some of my most precious ones!

The first one is for my husband.  Using a clean and simple design, I've digi stamped a cuddly buddly image 5 times and used it to colour and layer.  its coloured with promarkers (poppy, ruby, walnut, cool grey 1 to 5, olive green, lime green, moss, vanilla, tan and caramel), then using the all important glitter (used red and gold) to finish.  The whole thing was mounted onto a printed background with the sentiment all put together in craft artist Sorry about the pictures - I can't seem to get the right balance without the natural daylight

I want to enter this on into:
Passion for promarkers - Include a sentiment
Papertake - Last Christmas card
Here come the boys - Anything goes
Glitter and sparkle - red and green
613 Avenue Create - anything goes with CAS twist

This next one was made for my Mother in law to send to my Father in law.  The backing papers are from a Kay Miller digi kit and the image was another cuddly buddly image.

It was as ever coloured with promarkers.  This one was made as an easel card.

I want to enter this into:
I love promarkers - more than one fold
Here come the boys - anything goes

Thanks so much for dropping by - please leave me a message if you do - so I know you've been.
