away in a manger

Morning girls
It challenge day over on Totally Papercrafts and our hostess with the mostest today is Sarah.
She's set the theme for this week as


we've two sponsors again this week girls.  First off there's 


and 6 images of your choice from

So, are you ready to play?  I'll bet me bottom dollar your not finished your crimbo cards yet so go get inky and join the fun with me and me teamies.
I was hopping along the other day when I stopped at the lovely Mina's blog and saw this image by Mo Manning.  I just had to have it!!  It sum's up what Christmas is all about beautifully.

Isn't this just adorable?  Love it!!  I coloured as always with copic markers and added a little glamour dust to his wings.  I've absolutely no clue about the papers.  I was rummaging around in me Christmas box and found a wee pile of these 6x6.  Don't know when I bought them or where.  I also found a couple of boxes of CD's stamps I forgot about so that sorted the sentiment.  Isn't it awful how much stash we have that never sees the light of day?  I'm going to make a conscious effort to use it up.  Heard that before have you? lol
So, that's my effort for this week.  do pop over to the challenge blog to see the others girls creations and of course we'd love it if you play along too.
Thanks for popping in.  Have a brill weekend
