Oh so cute!!

Hello and I hope this post reaches you in good health - this is definately the time of year for colds and flus. My second Christmas card is made with a brand new stamp that I just purchased - its a Tina Wenke stamp called "Alex in the snow with puppies" If you have followed my blog you will know that me and dog stamps kind of go together - I cannot resist a cute doggy stamp!! As soon as I saw this one it was "got to have it". I colored in the image with my copics (list at bottom) and then I cut the image out. I attached with pop-up squares to give a bit of 3 dimentional look. The background is layered with various cs and dp from Cottage Christmas paper pad. The sentiment is also from the same dp. I used some TH Distress Ink - walnut stain around the background sky. I also used swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder for the sky. The snowflakes are a new diecut - which I absolutely love and know I will use for many projects. The diecut is from Memory Box and called Crystalline Border. I added a bit of clear stickles to the snowflakes as well. Copics used were BG15,13,11, R27,24,22,20, E44,43,42,27,13,11,02,00, W7,5,3, C4,2,0. Thanks for stopping by for a look and hope you have a wonderful day.

My First Christmas Card for 2011

Hello I know it has been a very long time since my last post - my summer was absolutely crazy busy and things don't seem to be slowing down too much since but I am starting to find bits and pieces of time to spend in my craft room so I guess that is a start. This is one of my favorite stamp sets from Penny Black and I love coloring them. I have to admit though that I do need to re-acquaint myself with my copic markers - I have actually become quite rusty with using them - I need to spend some time again using them - sorry I didn't keep track of the colors I used for this card. Well one Christmas card done - many, many more to go - lol!!

Thanks for stopping by to have a look and have a fabulous day
