Last Minute Christmas at Crafty Catz

 Good morning, hope everyone is keeping well and staying warm, this cold weather is a bit of a shock to say the least. It was so mild up to a few days ago and now we're waking up to heavy frost- that stays around all day- and they're even mentioning the 's' word! Haven't had any snow to speak of here for a few years now, I'm wondering what Marvin will make of it if we get a snowfall- he was excited enough about the frost, was running round the garden like a wild thing and it took ages to calm him down. 

This week is our last challenge for the year at Crafty Catz, Aunty Sue is hosting and has picked the optional theme of 'Last Minute Christmas'.

We are sponsored for this challenge by the fabulous Dr Digi.

I made a card using the brilliant Stuck Santa image, coloured with Copic markers. The sentiment is computer generated, I've added die cut icicles and glitter, and some fluffy stuff to the fur trim on Santa's hat and coat.

Check out the Challenge Blog to see the fabulous cards my teamies have made using these fun sponsor digis, then why not join in - you can share your last minute Christmas makes- or anything else you wish.

Thanks for visiting, have a lovely weekend- keep safe and warm.

A gorgeous card, your colouring is fabulous Chris and love the snow.
Still smiling imagining Marvins antics, so funny.
We are being told the same thing, we just don't get 'real' snow anymore but the kiddos will love it if it ever turns up, in the mean time, its freezing and I am struggling to keep warm. Happy days.xx

Ha ha ha, fabulous and fun Chris and your colouring is exceptional, wonderful cat likes frost too, she walks through it flicking her feet behind her and looks back at me, she could use the path, but no, right through the frosty grass.Have a great weekend..
