Thursday again, Crafty Bloglanders - and another week closer to Christmas! At some point I should really give some thought to buying presents but the weather is so cold and the ground so slippery that I can't contemplate venturing out on a shopping trip at the moment! I shall be making plenty of money wallets, just in case!
And Thursday means another 'Oldies But Goodies' showcase over at the Karen's Doodles Challenge Blog, where my Teamies and I bring out some of our favourite but older Karen's Doodles images to inspire you.
The snow is still with us, although it is gradually thawing a little. However, the nights are so cold that the melting snow is simply turning to ice and it's like a skating rink outside. Bet this little one wouldn't mind though:

Papers: October Afternoon, 'Good Cheer' and 'Very Merry' collection
What a great image this is for a cold winter's day! I love the movement - and with the little dog running out of the frame, I get the feeling she's moving quickly! The DPs were chosen because they were some of the last scraps I had of these favourite papers and I wanted to use them up together. I might just have to buy some more, even though Christmas is almost upon us and they won't be needed for another 12 months.
I coloured her up with my Copics and added a little extra shading and background with my Prismas. I appear to have made the dog cross-eyed though! Poor thing!
So, pop over to Karen's Doodles Challenge Blog and see what my talented Teamies have created for you this week - don't forget to leave them some love. And while you're over there, why not check out this week's challenge, which is really simple this week: Christmas! Show us your Christmas creations and you could be in with a chance of winning up to three Karen's Doodles images of your choice.
