My first Christmas card

Thats right - this is my first christmas card of the year - i really  needed to have started earlier but i had an order for 100 invitations that needed finished and i have loads of birthday cards still too do. Better get a move on really. I have about 50 cards to make for woodgreen this year - I am sending them to sell in their shops - they keep all the profit so they can sell at whatever cost they like - sort of like my christmas present to the animals if you like :)

Any how here is the card I made using the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges - I just love this new challenge blog it has some great sketches. The image is by Mo Maurie Manning and is a digital image - she has loads of these gorgeous digis right Here - instant gratification I love digi images - I dont think my bank balance does though.




Here is a close up of the image - i coloured it using copic markers and have used stickles on the fur bits of the hats.

Here is the sketch I followed - pop along to Crazy 4 Challenges if you would like to play too.

I love your card. After seeing your cute fur baby photos, it means all the more knowing how much you love these felines. If you email me an address, I can send a card or two
