Cute Card Thursday Challenge 30 "Christmas Animals"

This week over on the Cute Card Thursday the challenge is to make a Christmas Animal card. As luck would have it I bought on last weekend at Ally Pally. The stamp is by Creative Expressions and I have coloured it with my ProMarkers using the following colours...
Ice Grey 1 (Fur)
Blush (Nose)
Gold (Star)
Ruby/Gold/Lime Green (Lights)

I have used more of the K&Co "Peppermint Twist" papers, this time choosing more of the green/red colours as opposed to the pinker ones last time. I have added American Craft ribbon, Prima flowers and a few gems, finished off with a sentiment by Kelly Panacci " We Believe in Santa". When I coloured him, I tried to use uneven strokes with the pen to make his fur look more dimensional.

Went to a Stampin' Up party last night and got to see the new catalogue. Sadly SU didn't let the demonstrators order from the new catalogue befoe Oct, so we couldn't see many of the new sets....I think they only allowed them to see 4 of the new sets. I ordered the cleaning mat, the "Crazy for Cupcakes" set and the new "Tab stamps" that match their tab punch (which I already had)...been wanting the stamp cleaning pad for a while, so looking forward to it arriving.
