Last 2011 Christmas Card

Now here's a card I never did post!!  I just found it in my draft posts.  LOL!!  Well, I might as well share it anyway.  I was hoping to have taken a better picture of it but I had given it away.  Darn it!  OH yes I remember now.  This is when my camera lens broke.  Happy to say that I have received my new lens and wow speedy service from Amazon.ca.  I am addicted to that website now.  LOL!! 

I used a lot of glitter on the snow and furry hat but but I see it's a bit hard to see.  Might look better if you click on the picutre but the way Blogger is set up these days it's hard to enlarge a photo.  Anyway, you get the idea!!  Have a great week!  Hugs!

MDUC #126

So I'm a day late but I hope it's worth it.  I had to go and borrow my sister's camera because I dropped mine and broke the lens.  Yes, I cried.  Anyway until I can get a new one Simone's will do just fine.  Her little camera is a Nikon Coolpix and I just love it!!  

At MDUC this week the challenge is "Lost and Found".  So I had some little gold bells my girlfriend gave me (thanks Cheri) and I lost them until last weekend!!  I was so excited to find them because they went perfect with this sleigh!  I also found some chain that was wrapped around a big candle that I received last year.  


I made this sleigh using a template I bought from Sandra's Scrapshop.  She has some UH-MAZNG stuff there!!  This won't be the last time I buy from her I'm sure!!  It did however, almost end up in the garbage a few times.  LOL!!

Something really cool about her some of her templates is that you can FOLD IT TO MAIL IT!!!  I'M NOT EVEN KIDDING!!  Isn't that slick?!! 


And this little ribbon tied up underneath helps it stay open when you fold it out to the sitting position.
 

The snow is White Texture from Martha Stewart and I added Glitter Ritz before it dried.  It looks so much shinier in real life.  This is my new favorite snow.


Here is the opposite side:

Santa's sack:

So it's in the mail on it's way to my mom's so I had to tell her to keep off my blog. LOL!!   What I like about this piece is sure it's a card but it's also a nice decoration or candy holder.  hee hee

Warm Winter Wishes

Isn't this just the freakin' cutest?!!  As soon as I saw it, it was a MUST HAVE.  A new image from Sugar Nellie called Warm Winter Wishes.

I'm entering this into The Sugar Bowl Challenge, which is the sketch below with the option of doing something unusual.  So my unusual is trying to color these cuties to make them look like they have fur.  I think I did better on her then on him but I still think it's cute.

(Click on picture for better view of hair and glitter)

Great sketch!!



I would also like to enter my card  into Simon Says - Anything Goes!! 

Sorry for the short post but I'm off to make my mom's card and I need all kinds of time for that one cuz it HAS to be special!!  hee hee  

Enjoy your week!  Hugs!
