Caroling Cuties !

Good morning to you all - I hope you are all well and having a great weekend x

I have finally finished a card that I have been making all week - a little bit here and a little bit there - I'm sure all of you with small children know how it is !

While browsing through blogland early this week I came across a fab digital stamp company that I had never seen before and absolutely fell in love with one of the images I found there.
Look at those little cuties all huddled up - they just warmed my heart. The company is called The doodle pantry check it out here.

While browsing the store I noticed that they also have a challenge blog so I used the excuse to put my new digi stamp to good use !
I was astonished to discover that you get treated to a (super cute) free digi just for playing along ! Very generous !

So here is my creation - I used papers from the creative Cottage kit called Robbie & Roxanne available here and I coloured that gorgeous image with my promarkers and spica glitter pens with some highlighting done with water colour pencils for a bit of depth. Then I added some fluffy glitter trims.
For the layout I was inspired by another site I found in blogland called The house that stamps built who asked us to case a card.

I would also like to add this card to the following challenges;

Crafts & Me Challenges
- Glitter
Stamp Something - Digi day
Etsy Inspired Challenge - Inspiration from Happy days design store (red salsa bracelet)
2 Sisters Challenge Blog - Christmas
Crazy 4 Challenges - Christmas card or project

I do hope you like it - thanks for looking and for all your wonderful comments x
((hugs)) Suzie xx
