Puppy Pile of Presents

Hello all, I know that everyone is probably running around in circles trying to get everything ready for the Holidays.............they are fast approaching and I don't even have my Christmas cards done let alone addressing them and getting them mailed.
So our challenge this week at Crafty Creations will help everyone get that job one step closer.    The challenge is to create a Christmas card using a sentiment.
Our sponsor this week is Lily of the Valley:


And the prize is


So I chose to use this darling image from LOTV and colored him using my Copic markers.

Isn't he cute all surrounded by those presents.  I cut my presents out using the Snow Angel cartridge then ran them through the Cuttlebug.  After the Cuttlebug I heat embossed them using red & green glitter embossing powder, the embossing from the Cuttlebug did not show up too well after that.
The frame around the image I cut using the Elegant Edges cartridge.  I twisted a piece of white & red ribbon to make it look like a candy cane.  There is a lot of sparkle & glitter on the image but you can't see it too well.  I used some Sakura gel pens to highlight the presents.
Here is a closer look at the presents.   The label where the "Merry Christmas" was stamped is a Spellbinder.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are all enjoying ready for this special time of year and take a minute or two and join in this challenge this week at Crafty Creations.
