Happy holiday


   We have another challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids starting today, the theme of which is 'Happy holidays for kids.' Again we are being sponsored by three generous sponsors:
Doodle Pantry ($10 gift certificate),
A Day For Daisies ($12 gift certificate) 
and
Deedee's Digis ($15 gift certificate)



   My first card uses the Winter Song Birdies digi from Doodle Pantry, which I coloured usin Promarkers. I added Stickles to the fur on the hat and cape and then matted it onto silver mirri card which had been cut out using a Spellbinders resplendent rectangle die.
   I then matted and layered this onto green core'dinations cardstock and red card. Finally I added a silver greeting.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Creative Inspirations - sparkle

   For my second card I matted contemporary Christmas paper from Papermania onto silver mirri and red card. I coloured the A Day For Daisies image called 'A visit with Father Christmas' using Promarkers and matted this onto silver mirri. The sentiment which was also matted onto silver mirri was a digi stamp from Make It Colourful.

Both cards are wonderful. Great coloring too! So very blessed that you joined our Word Art Wednesday Challenge last week. We just started a new one and we would like for you to link with us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Colossians 2:6-7 which tells us, "So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." Have a wonderful week...
