Love is In The Air

Morning all,
It's Wednesday already & that means it's time for a new challenge at 
This week we'd like you to 

"Show us Your Holiday Spirit for December!"
Now you can interpret that anyway you  choose to!
Just make a card for a dude showing your holiday spirit!
Here's my card!

If any of you were on the ball, you may have caught this little freebie image 
Bloodhound Christmas
which was on the Dude Time Doodles blog just the other day!
It's superb is it not?
If you missed it you can now buy it in the store!

Love is always in the air around Christmas time & I suspect
that is the case with this rather unusual couple! 
Hence my sentiment! lol!!!
(I added the sentiment before I printed out the image.
The font  used is White Christmas & you can find it here free!)

I have a feeling that one of them may be a little more enthusiastic than the other!

This card is for a young man I know who is being pursued by a certain young lady!
I hope he see's the funny side!!!

I used the sketch from  Sketch Saturday for my layout

I loved the layout & just had to use it!
I wanted to keep the card simple so as not to detract from the image,
so I didn't add any other embellishments

The image was coloured with my trusty Promarkers
The papers are Papermania, the punched section is vellum & the 
base card is made using red linen textured card.

Thanks for stopping by & don't forget to join in the Holiday Spirit challenge at 
Dude Time Doodles this week!
The rules? Simply follow the theme & make a card for a dude!
You have one week to do so!
Don't forget to check out the other projects from the DT, they are awesome!!!
Now to make it even more interesting for you this week,
we are sponsored by

AKA Steph
Who has  kindly offered a prize of 2 digi's for the winner or 
3 if you have used one of her images on your project!
