My Christmas Blog Hop DT Card

As I have already stated above my image this week is one of the new images Karen has drawn for this Christmas and is called "BOVINE BETTY CHRISTMAS".  The colouring medium is Promarkers and the fur trim has been glittered using Art Institute Glitter.  The image and sentiment have been cut and mounted using S4-249 "Big Scalloped Circles Large" and S4-114 "Standard Circles Large" Nesties by Spellbinders.  The dp is "Tinsel and Twig" GP65063 the girls' paperie by Margie.  The poinsettia I already had cut in my stash box.  I think it was created using one of my Marianne Design dies.  The sentiment was computer generated.

Enjoy the hop and good luck.
