Finn's 1st Christmas

My card today is for my Grandson's first Christmas. I wanted something bright and cheerful which I think I have accomplished.

I used my sketch # 20 from Vee's sketchpad which is a simple layout and fairly quick to make. I made mine into an easel card, one of my favourites just now.

This card fits the Colour Create challenge which is green, red and white with optional extra Christmas. I am also entering it into Charisma Cardz challenge which is anything Christmas.
I used Joanna Sheen's
Messy Rabbit and put a santa hat on him and replaced the leaves with holly, Nesties, Copics/Promarkers, Sizzix stars, papers I can't remember, sorry. cuttlebud Dots, liquid pearls and the rest from my stash.

first easel card

I hope everyone has had a great weekend. I have come to the end of my 2 weeks away from work and have enjoyed every minute, albeit busy. So its work clothes out again and preparing for the morning.
I made this card during the week so I have finally time for a quick post.
This is my first attempt at an easel card and I really enjoyed making it. I think it will be the first of many.

I made this with the sketch from Truly Scrumptious for their challenge. I used the Wendy's freebie digital image cup cake Tilly. So I am entering into her competition too. This image was a joy to colour and I'm sure I will use it again and again.
I used wendy's image , coloured with Copics/promarkers, PM papers, Nesties, Sizzlets alphabet, fiskers hearts corner punch and stickles.

Just read the addition to the truly scrumptious sketch which is 3 flowers, 3 brad and 3 gems. Whoops I didn't do those so won't be eligible. Silly me in too much of a hurry as usual.
