Christmas Critters

Welcome back to a new challenge here at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge, A big thank you to those of you who entered our Lots of Sparkle challenge, There were so many lovely entries, We all enjoyed looking at your fabulous projects and hope you will join us again for our new challenge.

Our theme for you the next two weeks is  

Christmas Critters.  

We have two lovely sponsors for this challenge:

Offering the winner a $12 voucher, we have the wonderful Di's Digi Designs. Here's a little bio:

"I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.

I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.

This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!"


Next we have Oak Pond Creations who is providing a prize of 3 free digis to our second winner! Here's a little bio:

"I've been an artist since the day I was born I just never knew it.  As a child I always loved arts and crafts but as an adult I let real life completely take over and forgot about the important things like scissors, paper and glue.  Thanks to my friend Jeni at Flip Flop Creations, I'm hooked on paper crafting.  After exploring the world of digital stamps I decided I wanted to make my own greeting cards by drawing images for them.  I'm happy to have a way of sharing my images with you.   I hope they provide inspiration and smiles.  Hugs and happy crafting!"


Now to share some wonderful DT inspiration:


 Carol using "Christmas Robins" by Di's Digi Stamps


Cindy using "Kona's Candy Cane" by Oak Pond Creations



Judy using "Otis the Elf" by Oak Pond Creations



Julie using "Dog Angel" by Oak Pond




Linda using "Look What I Found" by Di's Digi Stamps


Meighan using her own image.





 We look forward to seeing what you create with your Christmas Critters.
