Christmas Challenges

I've been working lots of early mornings and long days, along with prepping for an SU workshop this evening so my crafting time has been a bit more limited this week than usual. So although I haven't actually got six Christmas cards all assembled today, I have got one completed and all the other elements are ready to either be coloured, trimmed or punched so hopefully tomorrow evening I will get them finished too. Jingle Belles this week had the theme of baby it's cold outside and wanted you to use images of hats, scarves, mittens, etc - while Hazel wanted us to use digi images or papers. I have used one of my favourite Pink Gem Christmas designs as the main image as she is wearing ear muffs and a scarf to keep her warm and I have used some digi papers from Cuddly Buddly. I accidently used Paris Dusk for the sentiment as I wasn't looking properly when I delved into my inks drawer, but as it happens I quite like it!
