No, I haven't gone daft.
It's a new year and a new set of challenges over at
(That's CSAYL for short).
I LOVE making Christmas cards but usually can't get me mojo in gear until about September, 
(by which time, I'm playing catch-up)!
NO MORE!!! Thanks to Patricia and Valou for asking me to be part of the CSAYL DT, I get to make my fave cards all year, so no rush come Autumn. Yeah!
OK, to kick the new Year's challenges off we have a theme of 'Anything goes'.
 Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is BUGABOO STAMPS
One lucky winner will bag 7 digis of their choice!
OK, here's a card I made with the Bugaboo image, 'Winter Birds Scarf'

Isn't he cute all wrapped up against the frosty air.
I coloured the image with Copics
The DP is from a pad I can't remember the name of. If you recognise it, please tell me. LOL
(I have a feeling it's from Papermania).
I cut the image out on my Cameo before colouring it. (Saves all that fussy cutting.)
Please pop on over to the CSAYL blog to see the gorgeous cards
my amazing DT buddies have created and get all the details of how to join in with our challenges.

Have a marvellous day and enjoy your weekend.

I love your fabulous card, Viv! :o)

I love my Bugaboos! This one is so cute and more so because of your coloring and cute card to put him on. It's never too early to start Christmas cards. I keep meaning to, and I will. I was in pretty good shape for last Christmas and it helped a lot!
