Sketchy, Sketch!

Sorry you missed me last week. I need more hours in the day to get all of the stuff done that actually needs doing. I'm not slacking.. I promise. You guys know how much I love sketches. So this weeks challenge over at Pollycraft was just what I needed to get my craft on.

Wanna see the sketch? Of course you do. This was designed and drawn up by our very own Cazza. I loved using this and it's definitely getting filed for use some time again soon.

I combined this challenge with a commissioned card. I hope this doesn't offend anyone. :/

A lovely lady over on my FB page Cartolinas from Lou Mac placed an order for Christmas cards for her nieces and nephew the other day so I've steadily been chipping away at them.

Here's Luna. :) I love her cheeky little grin!

I coloured this little cutie with the mistletoe on her hood with Copics and ProMarkers in traditional colours. I've added Star Dust Stickles to the 'fluffy' bits on her coat. I have elongated the sketch slightly to fit my usual rectangular card.

I've used this years Basic Grey holiday paper - Nordic Holiday. Hell!! Have you guys seen this collection?! Makes me want to die. Totally sums up Christmas for me and the pops of blue please me no end! :)

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
× Crimbo Crackers - #1 Anything Goes
× PCJ - Use a Digi

As for my absence last week.. here I have another card to share with you which should have been posted a week ago!! Another order, another Luna :) I used the same markers and papers and added some The Ribbon Girl goodness along with a couplea Christmas tickets from Whimsy.

Hope you likey.

Head on over to the challenge blog now to see what the other amazing ladies have for ya all! ;)
