Hoppy Holidays

Hi everyone! I had a good time at the stamp camp yesterday but I don't have the cards ready to show you yet. Some of them I want to add a few embellishments to first. I do have a really cute snowman card for you though!

(click to enlarge)

Meet Pogo Sammy! Isn't he adorable? I just love all of the snowmen that Cheryl Alger has drawn. You just can't help smiling when you see them.

This was colored in copic markers and chalked around the bakcground. I added a little bit of stickles to the edge of him, but not his whole body. The designer paper is from K and Company and is embossed with the snowflake embossing folder. I added a little pink jewel to the center of the snowflake. I am loving these pastel colors for Christmas.

This week you'll start seeing peeks of some of the images that are going to be released at Squigglefly on Saturday. I'm excited for ya'll to get to see! Also, the current design team's term is coming to an end soon so there is a design team call out at Squigglefly for the new term which will be from January to June. If you're interested in playing with some Squigglefly images you should check out the details on their blog.

Today is grocery shopping day so I'm off to plan a menu and make my list! Have a wonderful day, and thanks for looking!

Holly, I love the colors on this card. I am still new and trying to think "out side the box" as far as traditional colors. I am paying particular attention to how you shade the white space around your images, something I am still working on! Thanks, great job!

Christy Dillman said...

Wow Holly, you are a busy lady! I absolutely love this card-the colors, the embossing, and supre cute image you colored!
