Hello!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. It really felt like Christmas here this year as we had lots of snow leading up to Christmas day and afterwards.  Temperatures have been bitterly cold, with wind chill feeling like -30C.  No warm up until around the 5th of January!

I still have a couple of Christmas cards to post, so I hope you don't mind that I share them even after the holidays.

This is a digital image from Polkadoodles.   I bought a few images from them, and this is the only one I had time to colour so far. They are so adorable.

After re-sizing I used prismacolour pencils to colour.  I then cut out the image using Spellbinders pierced rectangles.  The designer paper is a pack I bought from a Stamp store out of town.  There is no name on the cellophane, but I do know that it is from the UK.  I thought it went well with my image.

The 'holiday cheer' sentiment is from Penny Black, which I embossed in white on some black card stock.

To finish off I added some enamel dots, white flock to the hat and wink of stella clear glitter to the berries and stockings.

Thanks for you visit today!
