December New release Part 2

   So its the last call before Christmas... are you all ready? I think we are nearly there... need to buy a couple of bottles of spirits as extra gifts and wrap the last few but then I'm done - Although confession time... I've really trimmed back the amount of cards I've made this year to close family and friends. I just decided to not put so much pressure on and with a new little side-line business alongside my full time job - there was just not the time and I'm glad I did as I don't feel anywhere near as stressed!!

Now the DT are having a well earned rest in Jan so we don't have any new releases and we are also not running a challenge. The DECEMBER challenge will finish on 14th Jan as per usual and the next challenge will start on 15th Feb -  So I expect lots of love & creativity to be shared in Feb challenges!! 

So without any more waffle from me - ALL DRESSED UP would like to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

 So here is the second inspiration post for the new release inspiration!!!  

Christmas Pet 

Christmas Hugs

And now for the creative inspiration for how to colour them and create beautiful cards -

Annie using Christmas hugs


 Carole using Sleepy Bear


So there you go - aren't they just adorable images! Why not pop over the Esty shop and get some new images for your last few Christmas cards. Nothing like a new image to inspire some creativity.  
Don't forget to share your creations with us and enter the 
The All Dressed Up Challenge Blog
This runs till the evening of the 14th each month and is always an 
"Anything goes with a ADU image" theme. 
We also have the All Dressed Up facebook group with a challenge running from the first of the month till the end of the month. The theme for December is Lets Celebrate
