Pollycraft Monday #117: Anything Goes

Good Monday Morning!  Another week has flown by and over here the temperature has dropped a little bit more.  It looks like we might be in for a cold winter!

It's time for a new Pollycraft Monday Challenge!  We had loads of great entries into our Spooky Goings On challenge last week!  It was great to see so many people getting into the spirit of Halloween.  

This week it was Marit's turn to choose and she chose everyone's favourite challenge... Anything Goes!   Our sponsor this week is Letraset and the winner will receive a pack of 5 Promakers.

Head on over to the Pollycraft Challenge blog and check out the fabulous projects our DT has to show you this week!  Also, did you know that Paula is having a bundle sale on in the Pollycraft shop?  You can get some amazing deals there at the moment!  For example you can get all four of the Christmas Chesters for £2.50!!!

I decided to try to start getting ahead with my Christmas cards and I used one of the adorable Chesters. 

The papers I have used are from Crate Paper and October Afternoon.  I coloured Chester with copics and highlighted around him by flicking out from the image with B0000 and B000.  I added Stickles to his hat.  The charm is from The Secret Garden on Da Wanda and the sentiment is a stamp from Lili of the Valley and I think the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Ribbon Girl: Jingle all the way to Christmas
One Stitch at a Time #86: Christmas
Dream Valley Challenges #19: Anything Goes
Come and Get it Challenges: Anything Goes
Little Claire's Designs #14: Christmas

Here's a close-up of Chester:

And here are the copics I used:

Have a lovely week!

You did such an amazing card. Your copic skills are incredible. I want so much to learn how to color with them, but am afraid to make the investment for fear I won't be any good at it. Thanks for inspiring me today.
God Bless
