Dig Choosday Challenge – Week 50: Last Minute Christmas!

Hello, how are things? At last I have finished my Christmas shopping! Hurrah! Hope your Christmas prep is going well too! I have even made my mince pies and iced my cake! I am a festive domestic goddess!!! J

OK enough waffle, as it is Choosday we have another challenge over at Digi Choosday and our theme this week is Last Minute Christmas!  As usual there is a fab prize up for grabs so check out the blog for details.

So to me ‘Last Minute Christmas’ means “Oh heck, I've forgotten someone!!” Therefore I wanted to make something that was incredibly simple and could be created in a flash! And that’s where the awesome Work & Play 5 – Festive Hollybobs Full Collection comes in! There are so many gorgeous goodies in this collection and if you have a graphics program you can whip up a fabulous design in moments (OK so moments may be a bit of an exaggeration but you get the idea!)!  I used one of the beautiful papers and some of the amazing pre-coloured images and arranged them in Serif to make a scene! 

You can also get the Hollybobs Santa as a single digi here.

So simple! 

All Images (pre-coloured), sentiment and paper: Work & Play 5 – Festive Hollybobs Full Collection!
Card: A5 Blank
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers on the sentiment and to outline the images only
Others: Serif Craft Artist 2

So pop over to the blog to see the incredible inspiration created by the amazing DT and join in with this fab challenge! And don't forget to check out Nikky’s stunning designs in the shop!

Thanks so much for looking and have a great day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
