I'm doing this post with my eyes shut as I refuse to have anything to do with Christmas this early!

Good morning blogworld,

It's a new challenge over at Moving Along with the Times and this week we want to see (look away now) your 'Christmas Cuties' creations.

Nooooooo - it's not Christmas yet, that's months away, isn't it??  Well it is for me - and it will be for at least two months yet.

Anyway, aren't I doing good typing with my eyes shut!, here's the card:

Front shot:

His close up (trying to show the glitter on his hat, only succeeding in showing how I got chalk on his hat instead!):

I used:

Digi stamp:
Pollycraft - Maurice Christmas socks 
(but you'll never find it it was a freebie three? years ago) 
Am sooo sooo sooo sad that Paula is shutting up shop again - I will miss Pollycraft - but there are bargains to be had!
coloured with me Promarkers and background chalked.

Go Kreate
Die-namics - for the border

Bo Bunny (probably - I will check)

Anything else?
Twine and chipboard deer - from my stuff.

So who else fancies making a Christmas Cutie then?  You know you want to, don't you!!  Come join us over at MAWTT and feel Christmassy - you'll make me feel better ;-)


PS - You might not see me much next week, it's half-term already and SHMbO is off which seriously cuts into my crafting time.  Back to normal the week after.

A challenge, or two:
