'Dex' the halls with boughs of holly...

...Fa la la la laa...lala la laaa.
Are you all ready for Christmas? or are you a last minute Christmas shopper?
Well let's show you something to add to your Christmas wish list, or indeed something you may want to buy yourself as a little treat, well,  you have been working very hard with your festive preparations that you deserve it don't you? ;)
There's a new release from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, that i'm sure you'll want to get your crafty hands on...

I just had to colour up this cutie straight away, this is Dexter Caroling.
I know, he's so adorable isn't he?
He's a Pollycraft image, which are now available from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.
I've coloured Dexter with Promarkers.
The paper is from Carta Bella's 'Winter Fun' pack.
I used my Cart-Us frame dies behind the image, the white piece of this has been embossed with a snowflake folder.
The flowers were made from gold vellum using my SU boho blossoms punch.

I'd like to enter this card at:
That Craft Place - christmas
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Extra - anything goes
My Mums Craft Shop - Winter/Christmas
Passion for Promarkers - include a sentiment

But there's more... I couldn't resist colouring up another Dexter to show you today.
This is Dexter Lantern...

He looks so cool in his antler hat don't you think?
The papers are by Dovecraft (back to basics vintage christmas).
The leaves are punched from gold paper, I hope it's ok to extend them further up the side than the sketch given by Sketch Saturday.
'son' was die cut using my By the Letters dies, and I found a gold greeting in my stash which fit perfectly at the bottom.

I'm entering this card at:
Sketch Saturday - sketch
Here Come The Boys - anything goes
Papertake Weekly - christmas creatures
