Papertake Weekly - Christmas Cards!

Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday! We've got Monday under our belts, and that's always a good thing as far as the work week is concerned, anyway. LOL!  So it's time for a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly! Wow, we had an outstanding turnout for our challenge last week! Thanks so much to everyone that played along!! This week the challenge is Christmas cards and we're being sponsored by Dies to Die For! So here's my contribution this week.  This is actually the card I designed for my Coloring with Copics class in October.  I just LOVE this snowman!









Supplies used:
coloring medium - Copic  suit E07, 09, R02. T markers plus blender for fur; various earthtones for puppy and ground.
papers: Graphic 45 and Bazzil cardstock
doily by Cheery Lynn Designs
silk ribbon from May Arts
jingle bells from stash
sentiment - Whimsy Stamps
Machine stitching

Hope you'll pop by Papertake Weekly to see all the rest of the amazing creations by my teamies! And then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

Sharon, aww what acute image. I thought it was a puppy that Santa is holding, but I think it maybe a baby reindeer--don't I see little horns sticking out of its head...hmmm. Anyway, loving the way you colour this image--just awesome. Love your gorgeous doilie and the jingle bells in your bow.
Hugs,
Norma
