Season's Greetings!!...

I created this card using the sketch at Crazy4Challenges C4C66. I am late for the challenge but I enjoyed using this fabulous sketch.

I've used another High Hopes Cutie here. These gingerbread sweeties are another design created by Laurie Furnell

The image is colored with copics as a base...and then prismacolor pencils on top. I used a few h20's to deepen the shading.

I received the circle stamp from my good friend Dorte..and don't know where it is from. I used a flower nestie underneath it.

Ink - memento ink, barely banana, creamy caramel, olive, vintage photo. Paper - Georgia pacific, bazzil kraft, The patterned paper is Daisy D from my older stash.......actually my hoarded paper stash...lol. I decided its time to start using these Gorgeous papers. Accessories - white paint, glitter, glossy accents, gold embossing, candy cane brad, pearl bling, ribbon, MS border punch, stitching and snowflake punch.

We are right in the middle of a snow storm. Lots of snow and wind. It feels very good to be inside right now and Buddy does his business outside super fast...lol.

Have a Great Day!!...and Thank you all so much for your lovely comments!!

Hi Ila, your card is adorable. Your deepening of shadow with H2O's is really outstanding.

Did you hear about my Sarnia on the news last night? 350 people were stranded on the 402. The highway was closed but these goofs decided to travel it anyway. Watching the US NBC news they reported on it, and even mentioned the town next to us.

Sorry to hear you're under snow too.

hugs,

Beth
