Some Of My Favorite Creations To Date

My Hand-drawn English Bulldog Christmas Card ~ Week 2 as a GDT for the Paper Take Weekly challenge.

Hello All!
This is week 2 to for my Guest Designer Spot over at Paper Take Weekly.
The Challenge this time is "Cut It Out!"
They want you to use die cuts, punches, fussy cutting, etc.
How easy is that!?!

For my card this week I didn't use a stamp. I drew a picture of my dog Zoey to use for some family card exchanges. Isn't she a sweet little thing?  ;)

I love using my original artwork instead of stamps. I just don't often have the time to do it.

The papers are from Bazzill and The Debbie Mumm Harvest and Holiday stack.
I used assorted Nestabilities and the holly was punched to qualify it for this weeks challenge sample.
The berries are white half pearls that I colored with a red Copic marker.
I did the sentiment on the computer with Adobe Illustrator.

Thanks so much for dropping by! I hope to see one of your creations over at PTW this week.
Come on....ya know ya want to!  ;)
