CAS Christmas October Challenge

Hi everyone.  It's the start of the CAS Christmas October challenge.  This month is hosted by Christine (It's a Card Day's Night) and she would like to see your CAS Christmas cards with ...

I just love this sweet image Cozy Cupfuls (Power Poppy).  This time I used Derwent Watercolour Pencils to colour my card.  These pencils were passed down to me from my son, Jeremy.  I use them very little, mostly for highlighting here and there, but today I had fun using them to colour everything. :)

Close-up ...
We are happy to have Anita (Stampin with Anita) as our Guest Designer this month.  I hope you'll check out the challenge blog to see the beautiful cards from our Designers and Guest Designer, Anita.  Then come play along.  Make sure to follow the challenge prompt and to keep your card CAS (clean and simple).  Definition of CAS is on the sidebar.  Thank you!

Such a sweet cardinals card, Loll! Your watercolor pencil coloring is so beautiful, and the bright colors look fantastic against white. I have watercolore pencils but I've never used them, and you totally inspired me to use them. Thank you!
