Just a note

 
Decided to play with one of my favorite house mouses today.  Stamped him with Memento Rich Cocoa ink then colored him with Copics.  Cut out circles with Nestabilities dies.  Background layer was embossed with Cuttlebug Allegro Music Notes folder.  Added some brown and white bakers twine on the lower panel on the sketch and a banner with Just A Note saying in the upper right corner.

Warm wishes




Finished another holiday card today.   Hope to get them all done by Thanksgiving so I'm not rushing around in December.  This cute little snowman is a digi from Bugaboo.  Colored him with Copics.  Cut out the frame with Nestabilties dies stacked one inside the other.  Paper is from Basic Grey.  Also added a ice cycle border made with my MS Drippy Goo punch.  Added some Stickles for the snow, a red ribbon, a snowflake button and a computer printed saying.

Just chicken in

 
Thought this fun chicken would be perfect to use for my neighbors Christmas card.  She loves to knit and is always giving us knitted hats and gifts.  Stamp is made by Penny Black.  Colored with Copics.  Green layer is embossed with Chicken Wire embossing folder.  Cut out two small pieces of silver cardstock for the knitting needles then wrapped green floss around a punched circle to create the ball of yarn.
