Sassy Cheryl Christmas

Good Afternoon everyone.  Sorry I haven't been commenting much this week but there's been a lot going on at work and home.  Hopefully it will be a bit calmer next week and I can pop around all your lovely blogs.

Here's this week's Christmas card.


Image Sassy Cheryl - Reindeer Pull coloured with Prismacolor pencils
Backing Papers - Dovecraft Sugar and Spice
Martha Stewart Punch - Glacial snowflake and Arched Lattice
Ribbon from stash.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Bah Humbug - Reindeer/Rudolph
Sketch Saturday - The Sketch
Jingle Belles - Suzy Snowflake

Looking back at this card now, I'm not too sure about it.  The papers aren't Christmas papers but I thought they looked okay but now I'm not too sure about the flowery one.  Oh well too late now!!

Don't forget that there is still time to enter Nutcrafters Challenge this week using the fab free digi image.  There will be a new challenge posted on Wednesday and here's a sneaky peek of my DT card.


Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  Hugs xx

No problem with the flowery paper at all - the whole design is Christmassy so I really don't think it matters - besides, from a distance I think the pattern resembles snowflakes, or that might just be a trick of the brain in associating those snowflake embellishments with the pattern. The image is great fun & I do like how you have coloured the reindeer. Hope things settle down a bit for you.

Hi Debs,
Am having the same problem with time management ... just so many things happening right now and not enough hours in the day. I agree that the flowery paper looks fine despite not being Christmassy and your Rudolph is perfect for our challenge. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!

Luv'n'Stuff
