Punches and Dies

Good morning everyone. Hope you are having a good weekend. I have the usual housework and laundry to do today which unfortunately has to be done in between taking/ picking my boys to football, guitar and tennis, and also a visit to the hairdresser. I don't usually do the taxi driving on the weekends but I have to do it today as hubby is occupied with an activity at the parish church.......... !!

Anyway, I have a Christmas Card today which I am really pleased with and it's my DT Card for this week's new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. The theme for this week is PUNCHES AND DIES and we are sponsored by the lovely Pollycraft digi stamps. 

For my card I got to play with the cute Chester, so you can see why I am so pleased .. .. he is adorable I think. I coloured him with my promarkers, papers from a freebie paper pack in a magazine, gorgeous ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and the snowflakes die, Spellbiners and a small stars punch as well.

Chester comes without the sentiment, so I printed this one for mine and then popped it up as well.

These are my challenges for my card.
Everybody-Art-Challenge 169 - A CHRISTMAS CARD
Bearly-Mine Challenge 24 - MY FAVOURITE THINGS
Polka Doodles 47 - ITALIAN CHRISTMAS (red, white, green colours)
The Crafty Pad 148 - RED & GREEN and GOLD or SILVER
Charisma Cards 46 - SNOWFLAKES
