Christmas Maggie

I decided to stray from the norm and try my hand at colouring on kraft so I stamped the sweetheart that is Maggie onto Neenah Desert Storm and coloured her with SN pencils.

I am really happy with the result and will definitely be doing it again. The papers are Carta Bella Winter Fun which was one of the first Christmas paper pads I bought and can still get digitally which is fabulous!!  For a change I have added some pretty flowers and the sentiment was stamped on a banner die cut.

Here are the challenges I am entering

Allsorts #320 - Add a banner or flag
Pile it on #78 - Christmas in July
Craft Your Passion #271 - Always Anything Goes
Polkadoodles #29 - 2 or more papers
My Time To Craft #300 - Christmas in July
Crafty Boots - Christmas in July
OLLCB #185 - Christmas in July
The Sugar Bowl #126 -  Anything Goes

Wishing you a good Tuesday xx
