Four in One for Christmas

Evening everybody!  Hope your all well and getting full of the holiday spirit, the big day is nearly upon us.  My children are getting really excited and busy writing out Xcards to their friends.  I've been playing with a fabby image from Mo's Digital Pencil Too.  I love it so much, think I might send it to our dogs - just to make sure it doesn't leave the house LOL! This is for four challenges;

Pollycraft - Sketch

Papertake Weekly Challenge - Red and Green MUST NOT be seen!

Creative Inspirations - Non Tradititional Christmas Colours

Crafty Creations Challenge - Christmas for My Pet

The cardstock, ribbon and bling was from my stash.  I've used my nesties around the image and used copics and watercolour pencils to colour in.  I dabbed black ink on my finger then rubbed around the image  slightly.  I love the windy, swirly effect its created. I've gone around all cardstock and papers with my silver Uni paint pen and the sentiment I did myself on the laptop.  The paper is from Dovecraft I think!

Thanks for stopping by my little haven in cyber space.  Please feel free to leave a comment so I know you popped by.  Take care and happy crafting!
