I am totally wrapped that I am the Guest Designer at the 
Why: Well I won Top Pick at Challenge 60 where I CASEd
with my own twist the amazing Therese Calvird.

The Challenge Now is:

Holidays with the optional twist of no stamping (stamped sentiments are allowed). I am so excited to be participating in this Challenge as Guest Designer.

This Challenge is sponsored by UNIKO who have the most amazing stamps and are based in the UK.

For my card today I have used one of Mo's Digital Pencil images. I bought him just a bit too late for Christmas last year so he is perfect for my start into Christmas Cards as I have chosen to use Christmas as my 'Holiday'

 I have coloured him with Copics and decided to give him
orange hair. I have used two of my favourite blends here with the red  R35 R37 & R89
and green YG01 YG03 & YG17. Blue for the tape dispenser B02 B32 & B23

Here in the close up you can see that cute face even better. Was thinking, wouldn't it be neat if we had someone like this to hand us the sticky tape as we wrap presents for Christmas. I used gold gel pen on the star hanging off his hat.

Being a digital image I am able to decide on the size I want my image and in this instance I wanted him a good size to balance out the card. 

The sentiment is stamped and from a sentiment set of nine. I have had this set for some time and use quite often as they are so beautifully done but I have searched everywhere for the name of the company and sorry I cant add that at this time but will update if I find out.

Now its time to make a card of any holiday theme you like and remember
you can follow the twist and have no stamping (other than sentiment) or
stamp away.
 For lots more inspiration head on over to the
to see what the Design Team have been doing.


Thank you so much for coming to have a look at my card and I hope you come again soon.
