Hope this finds you well this Thursday Morning. One week to go and I can hardly believe it. My mind is still in October!! Anyway that is certainly not the case so I'd better get a grip!!
I'm off into town today for some edible goodies for the "Christmas Cupboard" and a bottle or two of some festive spirit, but before that I am sharing my DT card for

and our theme this fortnight is Your favourite Christmas image and WHY?

I found myself using Holly, a Wee Stamps Digi. It's the first time she's been coloured up this year but I have showcased her before here and here.  

She is a dream to colour and I was so pleased with myself this time that I am brave enough to share a close up shot too!! Promarkers compliment the pastel shades of the Nitwits papers.

Glamour Dust was used in outrageous amounts to achieve the necessary sparkle and I even unearthed some crystal stems and pearls. The perfectly coloured snowflake was in my "might use later" die cuts box and was a perfect mat for the sentiment.

I'm playing at these challenges

Ladybug Challenge - It's Cold Outside
Sparkles Challenge #47 - Blue Christmas
Noor Uk #1 - Merry Christmas
I Love Promarkers #250 - Anything Goes
Divas by Design - Anything Goes

Toodles for now xx

Aww, she's so cute and you've coloured her beautifully Sarah. I use Prisma pencils and large areas of skin still scare me, lol! Love all the papers and embellishments you've used. Thanks for playing along with us at Sparkles Christmas this month, good luck and hope to see you again.

Sarah, Holly is beautiful, wonderful coloring and love the sparkling stems too. Snowflake really finished off this pretty card so nicely. I'm watching your neighbor in Wm & Mary (on Acorn tv) while away, and it's fun to see him appear totally different from his grumpy DM. Merry Christmas, and TFS - I've enjoyed your cards & pictures of your home over this year. Hope 2015 will be a grand one for you& your family. Hugs
