HO HO HO ... {November 2017 Reminder Project for Color It Create It Show It Off}

{HO HO HO ...}

Here is my November 2017 REMINDER project for My Besties Colour It! Create It! Show It off! using this super adorable little girl from Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE.
I am sure you will all agree, that she is just so FUN in her festive attire. 

The flower has been created with a flower punch and the crochet flower has once again been made for me by a very dear friend. The brad and design papers are from my stash.  The image has been coloured in Photoshop CS3. 

The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.

TODAY AND EVERY DAY {DigiStamps4Joy November 2017 Challenge}

CELEBRATE TODAY ...

Design Team Project for  DS4J's challenge blog

I have used this pre-coloured image called SPRINGBOK to which I have added a background in Photoshop CS3.

The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC .
