Who Me?

Hope you are all enjoying the last day of our long weekend. The weather has turned much cooler today - which I am not complaining about, just wish the sun would shine - but does look good for the rest of the week.

As I promised myself, I would try to do at least one Christmas card a week, to stock pile my stash, so I'll be all set when the time comes to mail them out.

For today's card I'm using Who Me, a Mo image in rubber by Stamping Bella.

Isn't he the cutest? He looks so innocent! I started by stamping him on bella's bestest paper then coloured him with both copics and pencils.  I started by using a copics then did the shading with prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol.
I paired him up with some Christmas paper from MME- Frost - I believe it is a few years old - date on tab is 2007! Yikes! I hang onto papers - but at least I am starting to use them! lol. Dies I used are s/binder rectangle large and a bracket tab from MFT. Sentiment was stamped in back versafine.

Finished up with some stitching, glitter, versamagic wheat sponged around the image and a couple of nailhead antique gold brads.

That's it for today. Now I think I better work on my challenge card since I have time today. If you get a chance to play along this week our theme is Animals!

Enjoy the rest of your day, and thanks for stopping by.

Ok this little guy looks fantastic! Seriously..the coloring, papers and layout look wonderful. Funny, I envision him in reds and blue but the soft browns and blues take my breath away. Hmmm, now where's that stamp!
