DDSC #83 - Red and Green

If you are looking for my DYSU post - please scroll down :0)

Our theme this week over at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges is perfect for this time of year - Red and Green. I'm sure we are all using these colours on at least some of our Christmas projects, so this should be an easy challenge for all of you :0)

I have used this very traditional  image called "Christmas Door" which is available in the Digi Doodle Shop here and made an easel card.

I added glossy accents to the hearts on the border, the window panels and baubles on the wreath but I'm afraid this does not show up all that well in the photos :0(    This image was a real joy to colour and would work just as well with non-traditional Christmas colours.

Medium - Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Papers - Part of a candy win
Swirl - Magnolia Doohickey
Greenery - Martha Stewart  Branch punch
Ribbon, cardstock and brads - stash
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards

I really hope you visit Digi Doodle Shop Challenges this week and play along with us. The rest of the DT have created some gorgeous projects - and please don't think yours has to be Christmas themed. Just so long as you have used red and green, we don't mind what you make!!!

Finally, before I go, I need to remind you that the November Special is still running -  All you have to do is spend $7.00 anywhere in the store and you'll get the FREE gift. You will need to add the gift to your cart though to get it!! On top of that, there is a 25% discount on all animal stamps. Doesn't get much better than that. So far, $54 has been raised for Pet Pardons but I'm sure you can help up that amount.

So, that is all from me for today.
Thanks once again for looking.
