Christmas in March (because it's never too early)

I don't want to be a bore about the absolute monsters who hacked my husbands accounts but seriously, the work involved in trying to sort it and the stress it has caused us both has been just awful and everything, including cardmaking, had to be set to one side for a while so I am behind!!! 

These were not the cards I intended to post for our new theme for "Pets" at Everybody Art Challenge.  I've had a new image on my desk since we got back from Prague just waiting to be coloured but I haven't got around to it yet.  But I do love this little dog which is actually part of a larger image by Mo’s Digital Pencil called Candy Cane Pug.  You can find it here together with the lovely young lady who is walking him.  I used the whole image in a card on my blog here but for these Christmas cards I used just the doggy.

I have a couple of friends who are not big fans of the holiday season so I used the different sentiment below for them. I made half a dozen of these cute little cards, which were coloured en masse and assembled with a little die cut mistletoe sprig, complete with liquid pearl berries, and postage stamp framing... and you know, it is never too early to start making Christmas cards!

We would love to see your pet creations at Everybody Art Challenge. There is wonderful inspiration from my teamies on the challenge blog.

And don't forget we have a challenge for "wings or tails" running at Stamping Sensations and as long as stamping is the main focus of your card, we would welcome your pet entries (provided they have wings or tails) there too. 

If you are looking for more inspiration with Mo Manning's digital images, there is a Facebook page HERE, the Dream Team Blog HERE, and Mo's "Patreon" Page HERE. 

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
