A Christmas Card

Hi everyone!!

Just a quick pop in with a Christmas card I created this weekend. I was going to post it yesterday but just was too tired to be on the computer.

I used Hello Bluebird snowman from the "Frosty Friends" stamp set that I colored in with Copic markers as my main image. I have had these snowmen since last year but never inked them up.

I used CASE this Sketch #344 as my main inspiration for this card, as well as Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenge.  The sketch had me a bit flummoxed this time but I figured it out. Instead of the hexagon I used a snowflake!

I had so much fun going through my plethora of snowflake dies and cutting them out to use on cards. I actually have quite a few dies and there are a bunch more that I have on my wish list!!

Notice the pink on the snowflakes? Apparently my inked background was not dry all the way and I picked it up with the Nuvo Clear Shimmer Pen I used over the snowflakes!! It makes me mad but don't think it looks horrible, do you?

I had a lot of fun making this card and am thankful that my mojo came back to me this weekend!!!

On a different note, I have been doing a fun thing for my daughter the last couple days. She has been super stressed with midterms and school work so I took the trio of cats that were her FAVORITE stuffed animals and took photos the last two days to send before I left for work. I then text them for her to see when she woke up. Oh, and by the way, as you can see, they are in NO WAY professionally done!!

This one I took yesterday in my basement before I steamed the shirt I chose to wear.

Today I got the dog involved. He doesn't look too happy does he????

Well, that is all from me today. I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a GREAT day!!
