Christmas Surprise!

Today sees the launch of Czes' new designs at Cuddly Buddly, and I got to play with this cute Toby Tumble digi design! He's also available as a coloured image ready for you to decoupage etc. I've coloured with my Copics and gone for a darker selection of shades for a change. Toby is coloured with E31, 33, 35 and 37, as is his constant teddy bear companion. For the greens I've used G20, 24 and 28, for the golden yellows I've used YR20, 21 and 24. The reds are R37, 39 and 59, with Boooo as shadow and on the fur trims. I wnet over the dots on the stocking and the white berries and stars on the parcel with my glaze pen, and added crystal glitter to the fur trims with my glue pen.

Here's the card, and it's my DT entry for this week's anything goes challenge on Cute Card Thursday. The digi papers are from Cuddly Buddly and to embellish I've tied on ribbon and diecut Marianne poinsettias to create the flowers.

Crafty Catz blog want to see some ribbons, and the Sukkersott blog are looking for digi stamps for their challenge. Cutie Sunday have a Christmas theme running so I'm entering with them too.

I have been busy with house stuff, meeting with architects and planners to sort out the new extension, and doing a little crafting behind the scenes which I hope to share with you over the next few days. Blogger seems to be having an off day so I'll quit while I'm ahead and try visit some of my followers.

  14. I love your shading on that candy cane & the creases of the sock. Your ribbons are a lovely contrast being darker & I have to say I can almost feel that silkiness around the top of the sock.
    Take care with all you are doing.
