For my DT card I chose Nap Time 
I chose this image because it reminded me so much of the way our cats snuggle up to us.


 
I coloured the image with Promarkers and created a scene using Nitwits Fireside – here. Collection which is gorgeous and great if you want to make quick cards.

The sentiment was created on the PC.

White Christmas


Good Morning,
Today we have a brand new challenge over at 613 Avenue Create.
As always its Anything Goes with the Optional Twist – Christmas / Winter 
I have recently been sorting through all of my cutting dies and decided to make more use of them so here is my DT card.




I love white on white but decided to add a touch of colour by placing a matt silver card behind the baubles and using weathered wood distress ink to edge the sentiment.
I’m quite pleased with the end result and intend making of these cards with slight variations.
The bauble dies are from Crafters Companion.
The Merry Christmas die is from Tonic and the foliage was made using a Martha Stewart Aspen Pine Punch.
