How much is that doggy…

…in the Christmas stocking?!

Wouldn’t you just love to wake up on Christmas morning to find this little cutie!I know I would.

The challenge theme at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best this week is RED AND GREEN.So pop along and play along!You’ll get to see the rest of the DT’s beautiful work too!

There’s the fab prize of a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop waiting for one lucky person and 2nd and 3rd place winners get a blinkie to display.Any winners ,if they wish,also have the chance to join us as a Guest Designer too.

I chose to make a Christmas card using the colours as I haven’t made too many of these babies yet – eeeeeeek!How irressistble is this Stocking Puppy image from Digi Doodle Shop.Very!He’s been coloured with Promarkers and has Glossy Accents on his eyes and nose.There are also some on the Holly berries.Might be hard to see in the pic and I forgot to take  a close up shot (der). I decided to rough up the edges as if the puppy had chewed them.Don’t worry I didn’t use my teeth tho’ – just a Tim Holtz Paper Distresser!I think the sentiment just fits the bill perfectly.I also used a length of velvet ribbon as I was thinking special Christmas collar  for him.

    Hi there, to answer your questions about the leather that I used….I’m not sure what it is. It is just from a bag of scraps that I picked up somewhere. It is nice and soft tho. I love your blog and your cards. I will visit you again sometime.
