Christmas cards all year round March challenge

This is my design card for CCAYR March challenge: cute critters. Please click on the link to see the lovely cute designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I used the lovely 'chill day' Penny Black stamp, coloured with spectrum noir pens, with Art Institute glitter added and the silver filed ho ho hos.

The base of the easel was covered with a piece of Papermania paper from the cranberry & apple capsule (not actually Christmas paper, but I think it works). The spotted and striped piece across the base to act as a stopper are from my offcuts box.

  5. Must admit this made me giggle like mad Hazel - I'm always amazed at how someone can make a stamp and the critter can have such an expressive face - so cute.

    Hugs to you again Sue Pxxx
