A Christmas Card Challenge

Hi everyone, today I have a Christmas card to share with you and this will (hopefully) be the first of quite a few festive cards.
This is a large 8x8 card and is destined for a very special friend, I hope she'll like it. I'm entering it into CraftyHazelNut's Christmas Challenge where they are asking us to 'make a scene'
I'm also entering this week's DP2 challenge to use your fave Mo image. This is my fave (at the moment) 'cos it's the newest, but how anyone could have just one favourite image from Mo defeats me!

I was really starting to go into panic mode about getting my xmas cards made. I started the year off quite well by joining in with a few of the Christmas Challenges, mainly because I thought they would help me avoid my normal last minute rush but then, due to preparing to move etc. it all ground to a halt and I haven't made any since heaven knows when.
Fingers crossed, I still have time to get enough cards made before December is upon us.

Card Details:
* Image - Mo Manning 'Hanging Stockings'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Papermania 'Naughty & Nice' and unknown papers from a friend.
* Dies - Spellbinders 'Create A Flake'
* Sentiment - Computer generated
* Everything else from my stash

I try to avoid a visit to Mo's Digital Pencil too often as I find it nearly impossible to choose just one or two images, she is so talented that I always want everything in her shop. So this time I made a short list of about half a dozen digis in my basket and then asked DH to help me choose, the 2 images I bought were actually both his choice. Don't you just love the hopeful expression on that little dog's face, I wonder what he wants in his stocking?
