Cute and Cuddly

I have another Christmas Card today. After Christmas I always try to keep doing at least one once a week, but unfortunately always stop midway.. let's see this time for how long I'll keep this up ha ha

So my card today I did it for the new challenge at
and the theme for this week is
CUTE AND CUDDLY

We are being sponsored this week by Stamp Fairy and so all the DT Girls are using one of the sweet images from the store. I errmm.. used..  again woops ... the adorable Barry from the Barry Countdown to Christmas set1. I love Barry .. always so cute with that look.

I coloured Barry with my promarkers, some embossing today on some white-core cardstock, which I am using for the first time. .. I love how it came out after I sanded it. I recycled the ribbon and cut out the Christmas tree from old Christmas cards (not handmade of course) ...  

These are my challenges for today.
CHNC 54 - RECYCLE
Squiggles and Giggles - RECYCLE / UPCYLCE
ABC Christmas - A for ANYTHING GOES
Dream Valley 23 - ANYTHING

Thank you for looking today.

I'm off .. in a rush as always!!!  to take son to football.

See you laters
xx

Hi Dora, It's always a pleasure to see you stop by my blog. I greatly appreciate all the kind comments and notes that are left for me.

I do WISH I had more time to get around and see all the wonderful blogs and designers that I love to follow. ON a happier note, I have all my blogs in my Google Reader now and can lay in bed at night and try and keep on reading them, even if I'm too tired to type.

You always create such wonderful cards and I love your coloring. You are right about CAS, it's hard and as much as I LOVE the look, I still have LOTS to learn, which is why I LOVE the class!

Keep up your great work!!

Hugs,
Lisa
