JOY {Color It Create It Show It Off December Challenge}

{Wishing you Double the JOY this Christmas}

The theme for the month of December at
My Besties
Colour It! Create It! Show It Off! Challenge

Here is my design team project for My Besties Colour It! Create It! Show It off! using this super adorable little guy from Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE.
I am sure you will all agree, that he is just over the top with cuteness all dressed up in his fun Chistmas attire.. 

The flowers have been created with punches and the crochet flowers has once again been made for me by a very dear friend. The bling, brads and design papers are from my stash.  The image has been coloured in Photoshop CS3.  The folded scallop corners have been created with a scallop square punch.

The sentiment is from
Paulette {Create with TLC}.
