Friends with Flair Friday....

A really, really quick post for today...
I am just about to head out the door!

Since I have yet to receive my November and December KOM
(through no fault of Unity...
My CC details were snaffled and we had to get new ones
...)
I thought I might improvise and use the beautiful bird from the July KOM and see if I could do a sort of non-traditional Christmas card...

I of course turned to Mercy's Sketch for this week for inspiration
... Cause I soooooo totally love them!



And this is what I came up with...



I used my Kaiser Craft Christmas DP again.
... Cause I totally love the rich colours.




I coloured him...or her...in with my Prisma Pencils
...Cause I so totally love them too!





Just a bit of a close up...

Now there are several things I need to tell you...
