If you read my last post you will know that I have not got very far with my Christmas cards yet so yep, it's another one today! At least I can put in more hours of crafting in the evening thanks to my new daylight lamp :-) It was a bit bigger than I thought it would be but the light is fantastic and yes, I don't know how I have managed without one for so long!
Since it is Thursday it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Little Fairies and our theme this week is...
Our sponsor this week is Hot Shot Craft with a £10 voucher...
AND a second lucky winner will get a LOTV stamp kindly donated by our very own Squirrel :-)
I am now the proud owner of a couple of LOTV James bear stamps and a lovely paper pad from LOTV so couldn't wait to have a play and this is what I came up with...
The panel with the border is supposed to be at a jaunty angle but I am wondering if I should have made it even more angled so it doesn't look like I just stuck it a bit wonky by accident!
When colouring animals I have often ended up with quite a 'blended' look so this time I challenged myself to get more of a furry texture on James and hey, I'm quite happy with the result :-)
