Feature a Creature!!

 Hello to you all. Back to the grindsstone for me today after a lovely week at home. 

What better way to kick off the week than with a cute Christmas card for our lovely new challenge at


it's a good one too...Feature a Creature...here's mine...a gorgeous piggy!!


I found the perfect paper in my stash (it's from Craftwork Cards) and coloured the image (from our Sponsor)  with Promarkers. I chopped the doily in half as I didn't want to cover up the pudding paper too much. I was a bit unsure but I actually think it works. I added stickles galore and layered the die cut sentiment from Creative Expressions.

Thank you for your visit and messages of encouragement. It means a lot, during these still uncertain times, that the crafty community continues to support each other with our comments and visits.

See you when I do!! Take Care everyone xx

Hi Sarah, hope you enjoyed your week and its not too stressful being back at work.

This is another fabulous make.....I must admit, I'm not a fan of Christmas pudding, but it does make for a gorgeous digi stamp.

Hi Sarah,
oh that image is such a lovely one and isn't piggy so sweet and you have coloured it perfectly too.
Making me feel like Christmas pud.
What a super find that paper was and I love how you have used part of that square doily.
I believe I had some of those at sometime.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

This is so stinkin' cute, Sarah! That pig is living up to his name shoveling in that Christmas pud'!! But I mean, he does have a crown on his head, so I guess he can do what he wants! Love the pp, the doily, the schparkle, and the way you shadowed your die-cut sediment! Keep well and take care! Hugs, Darnell
