Good morning, it's a happy Friday, even if we do have snow.
I think there is something magical about December 1st, where the powers that be check their Calendar, realise we are in the last month of the year, and that we must have freezing cold temperatures with snow...........and that's what I have as I look out of my window this morning. At least it's the perfect inspiration to get into the Christmas spirit........and make a few more cards!
Today's creation was inspired by a couple of current challenges, but I'll go into those in a moment. First, let's bring her out, and you'll notice, NO sentiment, so I can't really call her anything.............
This little lady has been coloured up and sitting on my desk forevah!! Finally she has made it to a card.
The image is a digi I've had for quite a while by Kelly Kids called February Fran - Cocoa, and comes in a nice little package of different images. Unfortunately I don't think you can get it any longer, as my search on Google drew a blank!
She's coloured with Copic's and has a little Liquid Applique on her jacket to create the 'fluff', together with glitter on the ground for sparkle. The colour choice is a result of the current inspiration challenge over at The Pink Elephant, and I just have to show you the photo cause it's yummy...................
Are they not the sweetest cupcakes ever? I think if they ever made it to my house I couldn't bring myself to sample one.....far too good to look at.
So I think I pretty much covered the colour scheme, except my 'carrot orange nose' turned into........well.........red!
No-one said I was perfect!
As mentioned before, there's no sentiment on the front of this one......it's actually inside and reads "Warm wishes", which is pretty cool as it means I can use it for Christmas, Birthday or anything really. Papers are from last years 6"x6" Christmas pad by SEI, and the layout was inspired by another current challenge over at Mojo Monday...........a sketch of course.
That's it from me for today but I'll be back as soon as I can.......plenty more Christmas cards to post in the next 23 days!
Have a good one
