Another Christmas Card

Well it's Tuesday already and I'm still trying to get through that mountain of jobs and I really have to find my Mojo (I've looked everywhere) as I've got a special card to get made for my little Miss Cutie Pie's first christmas.

But today I'm here with another of those quick and CAS cards using up snippets which I'm making to take to the RSPCA re-homing charity shop that's just opened up where I live.... hopefully it will raise a few pennies for them and also reduce my ever growing pile of crafty stash. I found this unused TPS 'christmas elf' digi image the other day when backing up my files and thought I should give it an outing, so printed it off and coloured it with Promarkers with the addition of Stickles and also a Sakura glitter pen. I used a Uniko stamp set 'background builders christmas' which I was lucky enough to win - huge thanks to Uniko and Passion for Promarkers - to print the sentiment across the top and bottom before adding the snippet of LOTV paper and the image which I matted onto mirricard. To finish I added a Tattered Lace die-cut snowflake.

It's a bit of a dull day here and the card actually glistens a lot more than the photo shows.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

The Paper Shelter 'christmas is coming'
Allsorts 'feature a creature'
Passion For Promarkers 'christmas is coming'
Christmas at Sweet Stampin 'anything christmas goes'
Crafty Creations 'animals' 2nd entry

Thanks for your visit today and I hope you all have a great week.

A sweet Polar Bear image Andrea and all the soft blues work really well with it, perfect for our Allsorts theme, many thanks for joining in.

Lovely to hear your cards go to the RSPC, all mine go to the AHT at Newmarket to sell in their Visitor Centre, always feel it's so worthwhile.
