It's Starting to Feel A Lot Like...

CHRISTMAS! Holy smokes it is cold, snowing & downright miserable here!! The temp dropped drastically today & the wind & snow moved in for the night YIKES it too early! To match the weather I decided to make a Christmas card or two today.
I loved Mercy's sketch (MTSC42) this week & knew it was perfect for the Elzybells image I wanted to ink up. Making Snowmen is stamped with mementos ink and coloured with copics, I've listed the colours at the bottom of the page. It doesn't show in the picture (sorry took this at night) but I added microfine glitter to the snow & added green flocking to the cuffs and trim of her coat.



The cb is white cs layered with melon mambo that I embossed with cuttlebugs snowflakes embossing plate. The ds paper is from My Minds Eye's Colorful Christmas line. To finish off the card I added some rhinestones. I managed to get these 2 made, and have the image stamped & paper cut, embossed and the circles all done with the nesties for 13 more cards - look at me go! I might actually get my cards made & sent on time this year!!

Don't forget Bellariffic Fridays will be on Saturday this week - see you then
