Phindy's Friday Challenge

TGIF! Time for another Phindy's Friday Challenge. The theme this week is Christmas is Coming! Phindy has lots of Christmas images in her shop. This is probably one of my favorite challenges, I could make a Phindy Christmas card every week all year and not run out of ideas. The Christmas/Winter Cuties section is so cute, I love every last one.

I went with Miss Chrissy Tree for my image this week. Such a fun image to color in! Plenty of opportunity to add some sparkle to this one too!

Hope you will pop on over to the challenge blog and see what the DT has created this week. Play along with the challenge to win some prizes. It's not necessary to use a Phindy image, but if you do you get entered twice, so that is some pretty good incentive!
