Christmas With The Cutie Pies

So the  Christmas with the Cuties gang are back from our winter break and the first challenge of the year is everyone's favourite 

Anything Goes

Here is my inspiration for you. Such a cute image from Di's digis that I coloured with my Promarkers. The papers are from one of the Craftwork Cards Julie Loves kits and the ribbon just happened to be a perfect  match too...really it is, although the photograph doesn't show it!!

If you look closely you can see that I even machine stitched the mats too...get me!!  I know Mothering Sunday and Easter are looming but I do hope you will find time for a Christmas make!!

We had a lovely weekend if bitterly cold and frosty. The dogs were like yetis after our walks. Here is a frosty Bowie, a dreadful photo but he wouldn' t stay still. And yes, he always has hair like Boris Johnson!!

I can't wait to see what they look like later in the week if we get the snow that has been forecast!!

 I hope this will be a good week for you whatever is in store.

See you on Thursday  xx

Lovely coordination of image, ribbon and DP as always Sarah.
It was -5 here last night, I do feel sorry for the new lambs but they seem not to mind. Must be the Welsh Hill in them. Hope we don't get cut off like last time it came from the east! Keep warm and safe. :)

A really pretty card Sarah, the muted colours with the glitter on her coat and hat make it feel Christmassy. I absolutely love seeing sewing on a card, its the perfect finishing touch x

Bowie looks adorable really, a real scruff...
Gorgeous card Sarah and love that image and papers. Think I need to get my sewing machine onto my desk, love the stitching.💖 [aNNie' blog]

Debra K. said...

Such a cute Christmas card! Sweet image perfectly coloured to match the lovely papers. Loving the glitter on her hat and coat :). I believe the ribbon matches, the times I've taken photos of my card to find that it looks like I was colour blind when I choose the matching ribbon :D.
Bowie certainly looks frosty, the poor thing, but still cute as ever. Your dogs will definitely love the snow. Our cats keep looking at us as if it's our fault that this cold white stuff is stopping them from going out, they're mostly indoor cats so are real wimps with cold weather. Debra x
