Christmas cutie...


Well Happy Monday everyone...back to work for most of us (including me!) except those lucky one's that are on half term! Countdown for the holiday is on with less than 4 weeks to go...starting to get excited now :)

Had a very relaxing weekend which was lovely and finally managed to find some time last night just before X Factor to make a card for some challenges this week. There was a sketch to follow on Anyone for Anya and it was a colour theme over on Passion for Promarkers which was Poppy and Forest Green. I must confess that I do enjoy working to a sketch and it's good to keep a collection to hand when suffering from crafter's block which I know happens to all of us at some point :) Here was the sketch on the Anya challenge this week...


And here is my interpretation of that sketch using Promarkers Poppy and Forest Green...


I didn't really have an appropriate Christmas themed Anya stamp but I thought this little cutie holding her bunny would look good as a Christmas image if she was coloured in with the Promarkers...

Cute little candy cane charm fits right in with the theme of the card....
Used my fiskars winter embossing punch here to create a border of snowflakes to match the paper and ribbon...
