A batch of Christmas cards

Good evening!
Have you been (un)lucky enough to have had some snow where you are? We haven't...bit miffed actually as I love it when it snows! Oh'll be here soon enough I'm sure!

Anyway, I had an order for a batch of 25 cards for a customer and so I wanted something fairly simple and easy, but not too simple. So here is what I came up with, thanks to Jen for lending me the stamp!

The stamp is from Lili of The Valley and I coloured it with Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red, Gumball Green and Basic Black Stampin' Up! markers. It's the first time I have used them to colour an image in as I usually use alcohol markers. To get the patches on the cute little fella I coloured the entire dog with Crumb Cake, then when it dried I coloured some patches in with the same colour. All my shading has been done in this way. The DP is from a Forever Friends set. I finished with a mini Woodware holly punch and some Liquid Pearls for berries.
 I didn't have room to photograph all 25 cards, so here are 10 of them!

If you would like to order any of the fabulous Stampin' Up! Markers or Ink Pads, please get in touch on 07915 698577 or at

Bye for now!
