Each day she has been using a letter of the Alphabet as inspiration.
So today I am sharing a card i made with one of her non Christmas images but I have added a Christmas hat to him.

coloured with promarkers
Dp from stash
Embossing folder is from a magazine freebie
Fluffy stuff for his hat and some red glitter card to mat the sentiment
