Another Xmas Pud

Sometimes I don't think you can get enough Xmas Pud - this one is from Dr Digi.  I've used a stitched circle die, folded it in half and added some red and white twine and two little charms.  The pud has been coloured with Promarkers.


Nice, easy and quick!  I'd like to enter the following:

Little Miss Muffet Challenge 204

Time for a new Little Miss Muffet Challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

I've used Forest Friends - Christmas Foster and coloured her up with Promarkers plus glitter glue on the fur trim.  The card base is made with the largest Fanciful Circles Nested die from Polkadoodles and I've just trimmed a bit off the bottom so it didn't wobble too much.
