Delicious Doodles Challenge #15

Good day everyone,
Today starts a new challenge at
and we would like to see
Anything but a Card

 I've made place cards using one of my favourite holiday drawings by Teri called
 "On a Winter's Day"

I added the names in Word, coloured the bird and highlighted the shadows...just a little.
These came together very quickly....great when you have a crowd for dinner.

Image was printed on Cryogen White which has a wonderful creamy, soft iridescent
Place card made out of Kraft paper
Because I love the vintage feel of this gorgeous image I thought I would sneak in a photo of the Christmas card I made as well.   CAS again and one of my favourite cards this year.

Cryogen white as well, framed in dark red and silver.  Card is SU Very Vanilla
Seam binding for the bow

Entering the following challenges
For Fun Challenges - I'll be home for Christmas
Everybody Art Challenge - Anything Goes
Love to Create Challenge #45 - Anything Goes
C.R.A.F.T Challenge - Winter
Bearly Mine Challenge #65 - Anything Goes
