Ok, you know when you’ve really blown sending out Christmas cards when you have to send Happy New Years or Seasons Greetings cards. LOL

Picture 28I figured I was so late that I should just start with a stamp and papers that I have had in my stash for a while and never got around to using. I got to use a super cute freebie digi from Pure Innocence, called “Merry Kissmas” that I have had in my stash for about a year (unfortunately I couldn’t find the link to this freebie anymore) and some pretty green gingham patterned paper that I’ve had in my stash for over 10 years! I had fun using up some scrap patterned papers, bits of seam binding and twine, and lacy ribbons too.

20141226_222330I colored up the image 3 times with the following Copic markers: Skin: E000, 00, 11, 21 and R30 (blush); Red clothes: RV25 and 29; Pink clothes: RV52 and 55; Grey clothes: C3, 5, and 7; Green clothes: YG13 and 25; Snowman: BG10 and 0; Hair and snowman arms: E74; Snowman nose: Y38; and Black coal buttons: 100  To add a little interest I used a White Sakura Gelly Roll Pen to add dots to some of the clothes, Mini Glossy Accents to add shine to the carrot nose and little girl’s boots, and White Uchida Liquid Applique to puff up the faux fur on the hats.

Lastly, I used Tuxedo Black Momento Luxe ink to stamp out a simple “Season’s Greetings” from My Sentiments Exactly and used clear embossing powder to emboss the sentiment.  This last bit I rushed so the stamping is not as clear as it should be, but it will have to do. I just can’t be even later with these cards!

The card in the top picture is being entered into the following challenges:

Remember I am taking a short break from drawing digis but I’ll be back in the new year with more freebies. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season! WOOF
