Who ate all the cookies?

I was so sad not to be part of the Phindy's Place Blog Hop to celebrate the launch of the Christmas Cuties.  I've been trying to give myself a metaphorical kick to get a few nearly finished cards together and here is one of them.  Delivery Man who is one of the Christmas Cuties is totally adorable, isn't he, just look at his cheeky expression.

I've followed Tara's sketch from this weeks Basic Grey Challenge, the DP is Jovial.  I also tried out a background technique from Copic Creations current challenge of shading on and around images.  As a quilter I spend a lot of time teaching people how to stitch random, meandering lines which they often find difficult.  Well now I know how they feel LOL, I find it very hard to make random dotty backgrounds:).  The felt snowflake border came from Stamp Attic last Christmas.  I'm also entering A Spoonful of Sugar's Anything Goes Challenge , the Fussy & Fancy Christmas Colours theme and as my little Cutie has his Santa hat on I'm entering ABC Christmas Challenge of S is for Santa, hope that's ok.

Don't forget, there's still time to enter the Phindy's Place Blog Hop!
