Kiss?

Hello my blogging buddies. Hope you are enjoying some sunshine as we are here in Dorset!!

I think Suzy is rather enjoying being an "only dog" as she was allowed to accompany Surprise and I on our ride this morning . The bottom of our lane is flooded still (about a foot at the deepest part) and she managed to clamber onto the banks and leap across the storm drains as she doesn't like getting wet!! Surprise and I had a lovely paddle!! Anyway onto the card!! I have made the decision not to put the Christmas hamper away this year and try to make a couple of cards each month  so that I am better prepared when Christmas comes and less tempted to buy new seasonal stamps!! This is what I have done


The adorable image was coloured with Promarkers with the addition of some liquid pearls for the mistletoe berries. The papers are Docrafts Christmas in the Country. The little boots were adorned with black glitter and the hat had a liberal sprinkling of glamour dust. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day. I'm off to play along with these challenges

It's amazing how quickly animals get over loss, not good that your lane is still flooded, I hope that it stays dry for a few days to help dry things up.
Great card the image is so sweet. Hazel x

I think it's a great idea to make a few Xmas cards every month. Not sure it will restrict my festive crafting spending though! LOL
Fab card, and glad to hear Suzy is OK after losing her friend.

A good plan Sarah, to keep Christmas ticking over, I plan to do the same, just wish I would act on said plan! Love your card and hope the flooding clears soon, mind you if you and the horse are enjoying the puddles, it can't all be bad. Just hope surprise doesn't like jumping in the puddles! Jx
