Forever Friends Santa Bear

Afternoon Folks!
Wow, can you believe that it is December 1st today??
Where did November go...??
I'm also running behind with this post, I meant to schedule it yesterday but we went out for the day and I completely forgot!! So without further ado, here's my DT card for the new challenge at Here Come the Boys which is everyone's favourite:

(masculine projects only please!!) 

This challenge is our last one of the year and it's going to be running until 3rd January so you have plenty of time to join in!! 
I've used a favourite Forever Friends stamp on my card - it seems to come out every Christmas !! 

This is my first attempt at colouring with pencils on kraft card and I'm quite pleased with the finished result - even if my camera tried to make all the red colours a bit orangey!!
Also an early attempt at CAS with lots of space, I kept thinking about adding some holly berries in the corner but managed to step away!!

Hope you can join us, we have two lovely prizes on offer!!

  5. Hello Jacky,

    your card is so gorgeous! And I can see the red colors as red, it means your camera is ok. :-)

  6. Absolutely perfect CAS. I love the effect on the Kraft card and I am glad you stepped away from the holly berries because that would have spoiled it!
