Good Afternoon!
Hubby out fishing today, so I'm loading this card then out for Coffee with a friend..
It's our Grandson's Birthday soon and as he's 17 next.   He will be having monies for driving lessons!
So I thought I might take to the skies!! Until he passes.... Only kidding lol...{No he doesn't see this!}

This  little cutie who  lives with Cheryl   is called Max is Flying High
 I've coloured him with Copics..Used Broken China Distress Ink for the sky instead of my usual Tumbled Glass! Certainly a lot brighter {Chrissy}. This little guy is so high in the sky you can just see the batch of trees in the corner. The trees came for a Digi stamp called Ice Skating Lake I popped a few little birds around him too...Papers/Ribbon from stash....

Good Morning!
It was the great Christmas Lights turn on in our Village last night..There was the tree and a tiny section of lights on posts..When the Council first put everything up! they had to come back as they'd put a Snowman on upside down! lol ..We'd gone to watch our Grandson is in the Band! LOts turned out and it really was a festive time, but, very very cold.....I did get home in time for Strictly!

I won last week at Kenny K's and got to chose 5 Digi's..
This is one of them and he's called Mouse Digital Stamp what a cutie!
I've coloured him with Copics...His bow tie I've 3D and raised it so you can still see the other one underneath.....Eyes have Glossy Accent on them..
Spellbinder die for the sentiment with another of his bow ties on. Yes! I know a guy wouldn't have 3 ties the
same, but, it is Christmas! The little stars round the image are from a Spellbinder die, same die as the sentiment...Just a Christmas red instead...Papers/Ribbon from stash...
