Warm Wishes

Happy Thursday.  OK, this is the third day in a row I have posted a new card.  I don't know what's up with that but I guess I'm on a roll.  This image is called Cutie Bundles Set and it's by Stampendous.  I picked this stamp up at my LSS, Simply Scrapbooks.  If you live in or near Kettering, Ohio, you've got to check out this store.  Vicki, the owner, has a huge selection to choose from and she and her staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable.  They also have lots of awesome projects in the shop to spark your creativity!



So, I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol and added Glamour Dust to her hat.  Isn't she just the cutest?  I love that smile on her face.  I used my Martha Stewart snowflake border punch and added some shimmery ribbon around it.  I used various punches to punch out my snowflakes and I covered them with Glamour Dust and added purple gems.  My paper is the new Christmas paper by BoBunny.  I love these nontraditional colors for Christmas.


Thanks for stopping by for a visit.  And to those of you that have signed up as followers, I also want to thank you.  I do appreciate that you take time out of your busy schedules to stop by to see what I've been up to.
