Squirrels Ho Ho Ho

Good morning my lovelies I hope you are all well.  I'm so pleased it's finally the weekend it's been a long week so I fully intend to make the most of the time even though I've finally succumbed to this blinking cold bug doing the rounds, damn, but hey I shall work it to my advantage ... can't do any chores best thing is to hide out in my craft room all day ... see always a silver lining lol!

I've decided not to tidy away all my Christmas crafting but instead make Christmas cards through the year as and when the mood takes me.  So, I've made my first Christmas card of 2018 with the cutest little LOTV squirrels.  Now I very rarely colour up animals but LOTV animal images are just the cutest ever and I just couldn't resist them.  I coloured them up with my copics and used some gorgeous Raspberry Road digi papers and went for a sort of crisp wintery theme with them.

Image:  LOTV 'Squirrels Ho Ho Ho'
Sentiment:  LOTV Christmas Grunge messages
Papers:  Raspberry Road Designs
Dies:  Spellbinders 'Romantic Rectangles', Crafters Companion 'Christmas Garden' Edgeable, Cheery Lynn 'Holly Flourish', Joy Crafts Winter Wishes Snowflake border

My usual close up of the sweetest little squirrels.  Lots of Stickles used and for a change and keeping with the frosty theme I've used clear gems instead of pearls.  I found the gorgeous ribbon in my stash so I've no idea where that came from.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

Simon Says Stamp  -  anything goes

Okay, that's all from me folks.  I'm in the mood for some colouring so off to have a play.  I hope you have a great weekend.

Take care.
