Hello Everyone..

These long weekends throw you out don't they..I clean forgot it was Sunday and time for my DT post for Lacy Sunshine 

Challenge #45 with the theme "Feature a Hat"..

This time I went for a male image, and a cutie he is too..Winter Johnny Sweet Urchin

All dressed up in his green Christmas suit and wearing his posh hat..
Hair and skin coloured with Faber Castell pencils and his suit and hat with copics.

My grandson has just got some new glasses so this card will probably go to him...

Papers are Couture Creations "Vintage Christmas" and added a Christmas decoration that I dismembered with tender loving care.

There's the open card...a side opening for  a change..

It's late Sunday night here and I'm off to bed..

Thanks ever so much for stopping by..I have the day off tomorrow as I went to work this weekend and it went really glad to get these stitches out..they are so itchy and getting rather tight..roll on Wednesday..
