Seasons Greetings

Good morning all.

I've got a quick trip to the dentist this afternoon for my six monthly check, hopefully there won't be any problems.

A Christmas card to share today.

The stamps are by Tiddly Inks and were a recent magazine freebie. I've stamped onto Neenah Desert Storm kraft card and coloured with promarkers. Papers are from Bo Bunny. Tree die was a magazine freebie; poinsettia die is from Marianne Design; all other dies are from Spellbinders. Sentiment stamp from Anita's. Ribbons from my stash.
All finished inside too :)

  19. This is adorable, love the Tiddly Inks image, so cute. Thanks for joining us at ATSM this week. Monika

  20. This is an adorable image and she's colored so nicely. I love the dies you've used, too. I looked at this and thought to myself: I wonder how it would be if I used some diluted bleach in my brush pen on her face and then colored her face with my Copics. I wonder if that would work...guess I'll go and experiment now on kraft paper with bleach. hahahaha! I love this card and am so glad you added the penguins so the card meets our criteria of Christmas Critters! Thanks for joining us at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' this month for our Christmas Critters challenge! Hugs, Gail
