Noel

Hello my crafty friends and I hope this Wednesday finds you well. If not I hope you soon will be. 

The Wills family now have a Christmas tree and associated festive adornments scattered about the house so I am pleased about that!! Not sure why I felt the need to impart that information but hey ho!! I have another Christmas card to share today using one of Cuddly Buddly Kim's images.
If you've not visited the shop lately go take a look. She now has "real" stamps as well as digis, Marianne Designs stuff by the bucket load and everything you could possibly wish for!!


I coloured the happy little family with Pro/Flexmarkers to match the "not Christmas" papers (scraps from my mountain!!) and used a bit or silver mirri for a contrast. I impressed myself by not reflecting a selfie in the die cut stars!!

I have found a "few" Christmas challenges to play along with

Have a good day whatever you are up to xx

Terrific "not Christmas" colors on this one. Love the sweet little shepherds guarding the Baby..their expressions are adorable. Your coloring is beautiful, and I really love the Noel sentiment. Pretty layout, and a wonderful card. Glad you have your tree up & bits & pieces about. We may not reach that point...but at least those bloomin' lights are up outside!!! LOL. TFS & Hugs
