Christmas Tree Guy

Good morning everyone, Brrr!! it's cold this morning, and we've also had a little bit of sleet this week-end!! Do You think we will have a white Christmas!!  Well it's Tuesday and time for another challenge over at Papertake Weekly.. we had a fabulous response last week well over 300 entries!!! Our challenge for this week is 'Paper Play'... Dawny would love to see you make your own flowers, borders, embellishments etc from paper, that's what a lot of us do any way, so nice and easy... you can also add some ribbon if you fancy:)....  I have used this super cute image from Karen's Doodles called 'Christmas Tree Guy'... he is such a happy chappy and so easy to colour, I used my Inktense Pencils, the paper wasn't the best to use for these pencils but it doesn't look too bad does it! I glittered it all up with Glamour Dust and added gold glitter to his little bells on his shoes... on the sentiment I added Gesso to add a bit of texture...

We are sponsored by Katherina this week at Whiff of Joy Stamps, so a lovely prize up for grabs... I know you are all very busy as it's so close to Christmas, but if you get a chance, sit down with a nice cup of coffee, maybe topped up with something warming... purely just to warm you of course lol!! and take some time out and join in with us... we would love to see your lovely makes!
