24 weeks until Christmas!!!!

Hello blogland,

Well, its official....24 weeks from today it will be Christmas Eve! Oh yes! How fast is this year going!?!?!

In that spirit...I wanted to share a Christmas design that I've been working on......

How fab is he :)
I used a 7''x7'' card blank (my current fav size) and the digi image was printed in the corner of the top white mat and layer (I used a mat of white underneath so the digi image remained the focus of the card).

The fabulous image is Robin from Polkadoodles Festive Hollybobs Work and Play CD and I have coloured him with my trusty Graph'it Marker Pens as follows:
Skin: 4125, 4115, 4155, 4170, 4145, 4135
Hair: 3110, 3170
Hat/trousers: 9100, 9102, 9103
Scarf: 7115, 7119, 9505
Coat: 7140, 7150
Boots: 9500, 9502, 9503
Bird: 3110, 4155, 5210
Fence: 3110, 4170, 3170

For the corner decoration I used: Tonic swirls dies; organza ribbon (half of the strips were tinted with Graph'it marker pen 9102); punched butterflies (xcut) that were covered with stickles glitter glue; pearl head pins and of course perfect pearls dotted all around.  There is also a touch of stickles glitter glue on Robin so he didn't feel left out!).

I really hope you like todays crafty offering - Happy crafting
