Too Many Mince Pies

I do like this image from Dustin Pike! I got it as part of the July Bundle of Christmas images and I think I got around 100 images too so I have a fair few left to work my way through! It's been coloured with Promarkers and I've added glitter glue to his suit fur.

The spotty paper is from Polkadoodles Paper Boutique Vol 2 printed A5 size. I discovered I had some small Cuttlebug embossing folders when looking for the Quickutz fairy lights die, so I embossed a bit of acetate I had left on the table from my previous post. I never know how to stick acetate down without the gunk showing through, so I used glossy accents and its worked!

I've added a string of fairy lights with a Quickutz die and a hand drawn line plus the sentiment was hand written too. This is a card towards the order I have and it will be going to one of those tricky males!
