Passion For Promarkers - Christmas critters!

Time for a new challenge at Passion For Promarkers and this week our theme is 'Christmas Critters' which was chosen by the lovely Andie.  We're sponsored by DigiStamp Boutique and our lucky winner will receive 6 digi images of their choice.



I've used one of the gorgeous new images from the Cute Christmas set which is one of the current 'offer of the month' images at DigiStamp Boutique.  And for once I've actually managed to (more or less) follow a sketch... I often start with a sketch but wander so far away from it there's no point entering!  This time I've stayed fairly close to it and quite like how it turned out so I might use this one again.

Sorry I'm waffling again... I've coloured cute Jasper with promarkers, flexmarkers and koh-i-noor pencils, with lots of glamour dust for some Christmas sparkle.  The papers are MME and were free with a magazine - I'm being so strict with my paper ban that I even debated if it was ok to open this free pack but I finally decided it wasn't cheating... well not too much anyway!  The sentiment is from Elzybells and black pearls from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

My little car passed it's MOT retest yesterday afternoon and I did a happy dance when I found out lol.  No more wasting most of the day walking backwards and forwards, and more time for crafting and blogging :o)  Sorry, I've got ever so behind with commenting in the last week but I've just had no time or energy for anything!  Hopefully I'll be able to catch up now.
