Spotlight over at SK Digi's!! :o)

Hello my craftin' Friends!
I have the honour of being in the spotlight at SK Digis today! Sonia has the most adorable digi's; I just love working with them. So you can imagine how super excited I was when she asked me to do this GDT spot. Yep, I did a little Happy Dance! ;o)

I have made 2 cards for today. So let's begin with the first one...

I used  White Xmas Tree 3 & Snowgirl. As this was for a special friend who loves snowmen as much as I do, I went for her favorite color too.....Purple!

I colored the image with SN Markers and used stickles in an assortment of colors for the tree. Finished it off with gems, Snowflakes on a button for dimension and a little bow in the corner. 

Here's a closer look at the image:

Now, for my second card I used Merry Christmoose!  I won him a challenge a few months back and this was the perfect time to bring him out to play!
I smile everytime I see this one! hehehehe

Colored Mr. Moose in SN markers and used DP's from DCWV. Glossy accents for his eyes and white gellyroll pen for the highlights. Finished it off with the cute sentiment that comes with the digi, blue dew drops and a strand of christmas lights; like the one's he's got tangled up in his antlers. ;o)

Closer look at the image:
