Saturday November 5, 2011

I am so happy getting more Christmas cards done and the Halloween cards are done.. Give me awhile I'll feel same about Christmas but for now I am glad to get more done. This cute little image is from Catch the bug digi http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.com/ I think shes so cute. So simple and yet fun to color.
This card is for the challenges at:
1) paper pretties pwc178 sketch http://paperprettiesblog.blogspot.com/
2) play date cafe #106 -pink/gray/yellow http://theplaydatecafe.blogspot.com/
3) paper shelter #38 christmas http://thepapershelter.blogspot.com/
4) top tip tuesday #58 - make your own background & tip http://toptiptuesday.blogspot.com/

TIP: when making your background and it looks a little bare in places take a matching pen and try to fill. When I was stamping the string of stars there was a long line that did not have the little square part to attach the star, so I took a black pen and drew in the little rectangles and then stamped the star.. Can you tell where I did it? It is viewable ; )

paper: su gray, white gp.. ink: ranger, marvey.. stamp: knobby knees - digi catch the bug, pti holiday lights.. accessories: stickles, spellbinder, rick rack, copics
