After a long warm fall, we are now freezing so it's been easy to create my project this week:
 
 
She is one of the cuties from Whoopsi Daisy which I colored with my Copics matching the tag.
I think it's time for me to start using my winter hats...

Christmas Card Challenge # 51 - Anything Goes.

Happy Sunday!
 
Welcome to a new Christmas Card Challenge!
 
This week is Anything Goes:
 
 
and this is my card:

 
While searching for a clipart through the internet, I stumbled across a website which offers very cute freebies: Homemade Preschool.
This digi is Tree Man Singing which I printed in different sizes to make this caroling trio.
You know how I love carolers and this tree is perfect for my collection!
I colored them with Copics and lots of stickles glitter glue on their hats and mounted them on a paper from American Crafts.
It's incredible that Christmas will be here in a month!
