Guest DT spot over at Dude Time Doodles

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a guest DT spot over at the dude time doodles challenge blog.
I am going to be guest DT for the whole of December whoop. The team are lovely and so incredibly welcoming. I have spent a wee while familiarising myself with how things are done and I think I've got it sussed. Watch it all go horribly wrong now lol.
The theme for the 1st Wednesday of the month challenge is "Show us your Christmas Spirit". As a GDT I got to pick some images from the store to work with. I chose this guy, I couldn't resist I think he's ace.

I digitally designed and drew my background I was very happy with how my birds and sun turned out. I've hand coloured the Santa with my pro markers and what fun it was too. He looks very happy sitting there with his cocktails all lined up, kind of wish I was sitting there with him instead of freezing cold at home :o)
As the card says "Christmas may be a little late this year" or at least he may be delivering presents with a bit of a headache ;o). The sentiment is just one of the ones which comes with this image in the store.

So head on over to the dude time doodles challenge blog to see what the rest of the talented DT have made. I can't wait to see how you interpret the theme.
Happy Crafting
