WHEE!


Happy Saturday!  I am working on getting some Christmas cards done, so when I saw the challenge at Splitcoast this morning I was ready to stamp. Today, we are being inspired by the most talented Kittie Caracciolo and her wonderful blog.  Here is her card that I was inspired by called Let it Snow.  Of course, I had to 'CAS' it. 

I began by masking off a frame on my card front and sponged Distress ink over that.  When dry, I splashed some water onto the ink.  Since it is water based, it leaves an impression that reminded me of snow.  Using a fine tip black marker, I drew in the frame to add to the focus of the image. 
A few weeks ago, I won some cute Digital images from Bugaboo so I printed this cutie off, coloured it with Copics and cut it out so I could pop dot it onto my card front.  The sentiment from Paper Smooches was stamped with black Memento ink.

Also adding my card to these challenges:

Southern Girls- WINTER BLUES

ABC Christmas Challenge-  SOMETHING FESTIVE

Addicted to CAS- CUDDLY (scarf and this image is so cute and cuddly)


 Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

Supplies:  stamps- Paper Smooches, digi from Bugaboo/ Distress ink-Broken China/ Memento bl./ pop dots/ Copic markers/ fine tip black line pen
