Challenge 54 Completely Christmas

Another lovely day and so far I've spent time with both of my daughter's and my two youngest granddaughters. Started out here at home with youngest daughter and also youngest granddaughter calling in to make some hessian bunting as she is trying to firm up a date for their wedding next year and wants to start making decorations along the way for a vintage themed wedding. She bought a huge amount of lace in a second hand shop for a bargain price and I already had some hessian so we have been busy cutting the hessian and pinned it to the lace. She wants to stencil some heart on as well but we'll wait till we've got it sewn together and keep fingers crossed it turns out ok! Then we jumped in the car and headed out to a shopping centre about 30 mins from home to meet our eldest daughter and her little girl who will be turning one year old this month. We had lunch and a wander around the shops, back here so Rachel could get her car and drive back home in time for her partner to load up his musical gear for a practice and then a gig tonight. I am typing away getting this post ready to share my DT card for Completely Christmas Challenge which has a new challenge starting today. I hope you come and join in and take the pressure off  yourself by slowly getting your Christmas cards or decorations etc done before the mad December rush.
This week we are being sponsored by Stitchy Bear and I've used a pre-coloured image which I re-coloured some sections with my Copics to brighten it up. I re-coloured the coat, headband and bows, stripes on her tights, her hair(I just brightened what was already there, didn't attempt to put any shading in)  and her skin.
Here is my card..........

SU Real Red cardstock for basecard and punched oval
White cardstock from stash for image amd mattes
SU Garden Green cardstock for mattes
DP from My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper stack ~ Snowed in  - winter papers (a freebie with magazine)
Image is from Stitchy Bear - Little Sianni - a precoloured image
Not sure where I got the robin image from
Sentiment is from SU set - Best Yet
Nestie Die - Curved Rectangles
Punches - large oval and scalloped oval
Memento black Inkpad
Copic Markers

I am entering my card into the following challenges ( back later maybe)

My teamies and I are looking forward to seeing your entries this week so come and join in the fun. It's getting late and I still want to pop up to the shop and get a few groceries for tonight, so will catch up with you in blogland.
