Red, White and Blue and/or Christmas too

The DT challenge over at D2D this week is red, white and blue, but since it is the last challenge of the month and that is usually our Christmas challenge, it has the option of adding Christmas, too. I thought this was a fun one. And I'm building up a nice little stash of Christmas cards for next year!

I went with the image Bear's Big Gift and colored him with red, white and blue. His gift is sparkled up with stickles and his boots are covered with glossy accents.

I've gone with one of my favorite weekly sketches. This is Sketchy Thursday #136 from Tracy at Eat Sleep Stamp. You've got to check out her sketches if you haven't yet, they are always awesome!

The weekly stamp of the month challenge and the DT challenge are still going on at Designed2Delight, so stop by and enter for some chances to win.

Thanks for dropping by today. Hope you are having a wonderful week.
