Cute Card Thursday Challenge

I've been having a look around some of other challenge blogs and have decided to see if I can enter a few on a relatively regular basis. At the moment, working on the Cupcake Craft Challenges and Lili of the Valley Design Teams is taking up my crafting time but I realised that, especially at the moment because some of them are Christmasy and I need to make Christmas cards anyway, that I can enter some of them. I'm becoming so addicted to this blogging- looking at everyone's stunning blogs and all the challenge blogs!!

Anyway this is my first entry for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge. The challenge this week is Christmasy animals and I guess really I could've entered any of my Penny Black 12 days of Christmas cards I've been posting but I wanted to post something new so I found this image I thought I could use. Though not strictly one of Penny Black's Christmas stamps, I thought the big woolly jumper lended itself to Winter/Christmas time. I coloured the image with my copics in Christmasy colours and added red glitter glue to the wording on the front of the jumper. I mounted it on red mirror board (hope you can see that in the photo!) and then used DCWV Christmas stack paper for the background. I printed off the sentiment from my PC.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Penny Black); Copics; Glitter glue; Paper- Christmas stack (DCWV); Assorted cardstock; PC generated sentiment
