A little more of that coming season

Morning to you all. I am back with some more Christmas inspiration for you  all. It's so cold today and it's snowing like crazy outside my window. Winter is truly here now. It's one good thing with it at least, my oldest love being outside again. It's wonderful to see him out there, building stuff in snow that isn't possible to build with as it's so cold.

I have a little card to show as well and this time it's all about Santa. With only twenty days before he arrives here in Sweden we thought we have that theme over at the Bearly Mine Challenges this week. Santa is coming! We want to see all your santas poping up on your creations. I for sure can't wait.

 My Father Christmas is coloured with Prisma Pencils this time and he is paired up with some lovely designer papers from Bearly Mine Designs called Christmas Glee and Mini dots. A very useful set the last one. I love i! I have kept this card a little cleaner as it is for a child. Two decorations a christmas three made with a Marianne die and a wooden reindeer. What would Santa do with out his loyal pets that takes him all over the world, right?

I also have a second card for this challenge as I thought it looked a little bare over at the challenge blog with three teamies away. So this is also made for the challenge. I normally don't have two cards in the same posting but everything has exceptions. LoL This card is made using a Magnolia stamp that I really love and it's coloured with my Letraset family on craft card. Over at PFP a few weeks back they had this as a challenge and I really wanted to join in there but got sick, only got to the colouring part. So this is what became of that image. I love the colouring on craft with markers. If you have not done it, try it! It's fun!

I have kept this card fairly simple as well with just a few decorations on it. So Christmas trees made with a Magonlia die and a snow flake die. A gem stone from an old neckless in the middle of the snowflake, a few pearls and a seal for Christmas presents is used as decorations together with a ribbon from Molly's Scrapbooking. The designer papers are from Bearly Mine Design and the set Christmas Wishes.

We have a great sponsor in Kenny K this week. They are offering five digis of your choice if you are picked as the lucky winner of the week. Come and play with us! You surely has just a few of those Christmas cards left to do, right?

Love n hugs
