Dottie's World Challenge - 115 Days to Christmas!!

With only 115 days to Christmas the challenge over at Dottie's World this week is to make anything festive! This was my second (and last) week of being Guest Designer over at Dottie's World. Can I just thank everyone, DT and Dottie's World followers for all their lovely comments and encouragement whilst I've been GD, it has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience!!
For my card I coloured Santa George with Pro Markers, I added loads of chipboard shapes and did stitching all around the card. I finally added a bit of wire (it always gives a bit of interest when I feel it's lacking something!)
This week there is a special prize for everyone who joins in the challenge, a free Dottie birthday image in colour and black and white! Check out the blog for more details...
Thanks for looking as always!

Love Becky xx
