Inky Impressions - Animals

Good afternoon!! This is my last week as guest designer for Inky Impressions and I want to say a big thanks to the ladies for having me -  it was fun!! This week's challenge is Animals so we would like to see ... erm... ANIMALS on your projects, lol.

Just when you thought the Christmas cards were done with up pops another one ;) But this IS my very last Christmas card (for 2010!!)

My image is called Sophia's Sweet Snowman isn't she cute? lol. I've coloured her with copic markers and added some stickles to her bow. 

My papers are by Papermania, and they are from last year. I matted them with dark green carstock. The border was punched out using MS deep edge trellis punch. I added some cream and red roses, along with some white poinsettias. The snowman charm is attached to the raffia using a fine link chain. To finish off I added a couple of pearl topped pins.

A couple of close-ups

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 600 so far !

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year.

Have you entered my new candy

I love the flowers in the card. Very pretty. I like the idea of adding it in some cards.

Love what you did with the card. The colors are beautiful. On the other hand, it looks like Sophia is about to snack on her snowman's head. YUM - powdery. ;)
