Deck the halls

Hello Eveyone,

We had better get started decking the halls, as the time is going so fast...40 days left I think..till the big guy in a red suit turns up, and at this stage no one is getting anything.....already it is Monday here in NZ...6.30am...as I have to schedule my post.....have a loooong day today.

MONDAY!!...oh, my!! that means ....................MAKE IT MONDAY   is starting all over again.

This week we are sponsored by the wonderful Emma who owns Pollycrafts, the home of fun, original hand drawn images for use in your crafting projects!

The winner gets to choose 5 single digis of their choice!

And I used this cute wee man on my card this week....


'Ring out the bells' from Pollycraft.....



Close up of image....



Side view....

Lovely image to colour with pencils, papers were from my candy from Lisa and they are 'Forever friends'...'Santas on the way'...fabulous pad of papers.Stamped the trees next to the wee lad and they are a set Ive had for a long time from Kaisercraft, added some blings and the spellbinders snowflakes.


My pick from last week was another toughy...but chose this little cutie #239 by Janet  



Beautiful inking...very clever...

And...a bit of news...A very big welcome to the lovely KAREN...who has come to join us here at 'Make it Monday'...fabulous to have you Karen....

Awwww,
Your wee man really IS handsome! Took a second and third look at his pants and it really looks like denim. Nicely done. :)
The tattered edges add the perfect rugged masculine touch as well and your idea of the huge snowflake behind it all REALLY is stunning!
