SANTA'S LITTLE HELPER



Hello Everyone...

Monday evening for me and had such a beautiful day weather wise...starting to get warmer every day and lighter in the mornings...have the blinds open at 7am now.

I have done my first EVER hostess post over at the  Digital Delights Blog  and was so nervous...isn't it silly to feel like that...now that is is done it was a piece of cake...

So I'm here now on my own blog to share my card I made using this gorgeous digi from the Digital Delights Shop 

Meet Christmas Bongo  ...





Look at those gorgeous brown puppy eyes...so cute.



Bongo was coloured up with Faber Castell pencils..and added glossy accents to his eyes...

His hat and stocking I used a red and green copic...R17 & YG17..pencils for shading..
and glittered the trim and pom pom...

The sentiment is a set from Digital Delights Christmas Sentiment Set  ..even on his stocking...



Papers are 12x12 Couture "Jolly Christmas"....the big flower and leaf is a Marianne die and the small flowers from my stash...



The lovely red ribbon is from the Post office...now I bought 5 bundles of these in different colours as I could not believe what I was seeing in the sale box at the post office..$1.99 per bundle..2 metres of each...and it is beautiful gross grain ribbon..called  'Wrapture Design'..crazy price..

Okay! that's me done...thanks so much for dropping in..

Challenges I would like to enter....
