Best Seat in the House

Good Afternoon everyone, a bit late this week with my Christmas Card.  As the weather has been so nice, we've been clearing the garden ready for Winter.  We went to Bridgemere Garden Centre yesterday and got some bulbs so have been planting them out.  Should have a nice selection in the Spring if they all come up.  Oh since when has Bridgemere had a Hobbycraft?  I had no idea.  I printed off a voucher yesterday morning 'cos I am going to Stockport on Wednesday and thought I would pick up some Promarkers while they are on offer at the Hobbycraft there.  So had a wander around to see what was in stock but I'll get what I want from Stockport with my money off voucher.  I don't usually shop at Hobbycraft because it is used to be so dear but I was pleasantly surprised yesterday, most of the prices seem on a par with other shops.

Anyway stop the waffle.  Here's my weekly Christmas card.

Image - La Pashe - Best Seat in the House (Christmas)
coloured with Promarkers and paper piecing
Papers - First Edition, Christmas Joy and My Minds Eye
Sentiment - Free Download (I'll update when I find it again)
Ribbon and Gems from stash.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Bah Humbug - Christmas Food
ABC Christmas Challenge - U for Unused Stash (My unused stash is the Digi, I've had it ages but been too scared to colour it in, I'm usually rubbish at colouring in animals, but quite like this now)

Enjoy what's left of the weekend.  Take Care.

Edit:  Ignore the bits of wet glue on the kraft card,  I was too eager to take a photo before the light went.  They have dried now and the glue doesn't show.

I love this card. I need to keep it in mind when I'm doing my next cards. I love how you framed the different shapes of cardstock. The dog is perfect, exactly how I feel after the holidays.

I like your paper piecing of that armchair & the way you coloured the bauble hanging off his tail red so it echoes both the red spots & starbursts of your patterned papers. The scalloped edge of your sentiment matting picks up on the frilly edge of that antimacassar too & your white spotted aqua pattern gives the brain an idea of snow too - well it does with my quirky thinking.
