HJ – Christmas Animals

We have a cute new challenge over at Holly Jolly this week.  Our theme is:


Christmas Animals


There is some very cute Animal images around that can be used to create a unique Christmas card, so we would love you to share with us.


Plus you could be in the running for a prize from our Sponsor Oak Pond Creations.


I have used one of the sponsors images called Dog Angel and he is so cute.


The layout of my card is inspired by the very funky sketch at Retro Sketches – I love the rounded corners on the sketch and the idea to add the background paper at the back. Great Sketch!!


The paper is one of about three new paper packs I purchased from a local Lincraft store and is called Vintage Christmas by Couture Creations.


Here is my card:




Told you he was cute and he has been coloured in with my copic markers and I added a little bit of silver glitter in his halo.


The sentiment is from an SU set called Christmas Messages and the Ribbon is an SU ribbon from the current Seasonal Catalogue.


Here is the sketch:

Awww Meighan, what a cute image and you really have brought out his angelic side with your beautiful colouring .....when I had a puppy I thought of her as a little angel though, in all honesty I was blinded by her cuteness because she was quite capable of being a proper little devil on occasion. Your backing papers are beautiful and the little silver bow reflects the sparkle in puppy's shiny halo so prettily.

Thank you for sharing this lovely card in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )

Like the cute Angel Dog Christmas/New Year card. Like your coloring & the silver halo. My first dog I had was an Angel. Dog I have now is a beast. I believe that it is true that like children, dogs are one of a kind and no two are made from the same mold. Thank you for entering OSAAT Ch196 Use a Digi.

I am drawn to this card/image. How lovely. I can see it being used both for Christmas like you've done and a pet sympathy card. Your colouring is amazing as always and I love the soft-suitableness of it.

Thanks for joining us at One Stitch at a Time this week. Good luck. Hope to see you again soon.
