Christmas Cuties!

As it’s the 25th of the month what better way to celebrate than Christmas in July!That’s the challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. We have the fabulous Digi’s By Phooka as our sponsor this week with some cute images up for grabs for one lucky winner!Please check out how to play along and be in the chance for a prize on the challenge blog.Don’t forget to take a look at The DT and GDT’s wonderful work while you’re there!

I was lucky enough to get to work with three adorable images.They’re from Animals in Xmas Sock set available at Digi’s By Phooka and I couldn’t resist making a card for each of them.This also means I’m now up to 19 Christmas cards made so far this year!!Yay!All have been coloured with ProMarkers and have had Polar White Flower Soft added to give them fluffy trims to their stockings.Just love this stuff!I’ve kept to the same layout I’ve devised for this year’s cards and have kept to my promise not to use traditional colours for the first time this year.Apart from the fact I bought oodles of these papers and embellishments that I snapped up in the after Christmas sales I think they suit these little darlings perfectly.I’ve mixed it up a little with different embellishments and the placement of them.
