Early holiday wishes

   The theme for our new challenge at Send A Smile 4 Kids is early holiday wishes. We are again being sponsored by three generous sponsors:
Bugaboo (7 digis)
Deedee's Digis ($15 gift certificate) and
One Happy Cut ($15 gift certificate).
So come, join in the fun.

   My first card uses Deedee's digital image Carolling Snowman, which I coloured using Promarkers. I added Stickles to the falling snow and then matted the image onto purple core'dinations cardstock.
For the background I matted and layered Christmas paper from Papermania onto purple core'dinations cardstock and white card. I also added a strip of the core'dinations cardstock across the lower portion of the card before I attached the image. Finally I added two card candi to the strip.

   For my second card I wrapped three rows of ribbon round Christmas paper from Jennifer Ellory's Berry Merry papers before matting and layering it onto red mirri card and white card.
   The digi image is ornamental bear from Bugaboo and again I coloured it using Promarkers. I cut it out using a Tattered Lace oval die and rubbed distress ink over the background before matting it onto red mirri card. I then added Glossy Accents to the red bauble. Finally I added a bow which I had got from some packaging.
