A Couple of Christmas cards...

Hi, hope you're all having a productive week craftwise! It's not always easy getting time to craft but I really have to crack on with Christmas cards so here's a few I've done lately...


This handsome fella is called "Happy & Cool" from Penny Black. I'm entering him into the challenge at Penny Black Saturday Challenge as it's "Christmas for the Guys". I've used the fabby sketch from Friday Sketchers this week, one I'm sure to use again (if I ever get round to drawing the sketches in my sketch pad...the odd pieces of paper lying around are starting to overtake the craft room)! Finally, the challenge at Colour Create this week is Blue, Silver and White. Sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly, snowflake is one I got from my friend Denise (lovely Martha Stewart punch) and the paper is Doodlebug from last year.


This little squirrel is called "Winter Delivery" and is a digi stamp by Mo Manning, from Mo's Digital Pencil. Coloured with Promarkers, papers are Dovecraft from last year. The tinsel bling is from Papermania and the snowflakes are as above! I've used the lovely sketch by Caryn over at Mo's Digital Challenge, and I have played along with the theme this week at Cupcake Craft Challenges which is "Digital Images". To be honest I'm not happy about this card, I think it's a little too dark, but as time presses on to Christmas I'll just have to go with it.
