Better Not Pout



Hi All!  I have two cards to share today that uses one of my favorite Santa images -- Sassy Cherly's  Better Not Pout Santa.  I was really surprised that a pre-colored digi image was included with the set. Although I love to color, I opted to use the pre-colored image to create some quick  and easy Christmas cards for my (seriously lacking) stash of holiday cards..  I merged the image on the first card on top of dotted digi papers from My Grafico,  For the second card, I also merged the image over digi paper -- this time I used holly digi paper from Doodle Pantry.

Although it's hard to see in the photos, I added lots of sparkle with glitter and a silver Spica pen.  I'm pleased with how these turned out and hope you like them too!

I will be entering these cards in the following challenges:
Sassy Cheryl's Show me #101 -- share something you can show us
Lady Anne's Challenge -- Anything Goes
Paper Cupcakes Magical Monday -- Sparkle, Sparkle, Sparkle

I hope you have a great day.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

  14. You're a girl after my own heart. I love to color, but when it's pre-colored so lovely and I'm not feeling so lovely, it's a win-win situation. Wonderful composition! Sorry I'm been away....not really away...just really under the weather to not comment.

  17. These are adorable and festive too! The colors came out really vivid and I'd never had known you were using digis. What printer and cardstock are you using to get such fabulous results?
