A Wintery Birthday

Hi all,

I am still playing with some of the awesome winter and holiday images that Kristy has put out at Some Odd Girl!  I saw a few challenges I could get in on, so I threw a little somethin' together!

Firstly, I am entering the Allsorts challenge #83: Anything Goes.

Next, I am playing along with the Creative Card Crew challenge: Birthdays.

And finally, I used the Card Patterns Sketch

And I had to use my new Snowy Mae digi, along with the fun Happy Birthday sentiment! Did you know Kristy sells sentiments too?  I especially like this one because there is an outline, so you can colour it!

Here is my card:
The base is Kraft CS, followed by a Basic Black piece, and a Whisper White mat.  On top of that, I added a plaid piece of Manchester DSP from SU, and I wrapped some Soft Suede polka dot ribbon around that layer, and added a staple to each side. 

I cut my circles out of Whisper White and Soft Suede CS using my classic and scallop circle Nesties.  I sponged the white circle with some Wheat Dew Drop ink.  I punched some arrows out of white and black CS and added them for some fun interest.

I printed Mae and the sentiment off onto PTI White CS and coloured them with Copics.  I cut Mae out, and attached her with Dimensionals, and I put the sentiment panel in her hand - it looks like she is showcasing it! 

Also, don't forget that the SOG blog ALWAYS has a challenge running, and every 2 weeks Kristy gives away SOG points, and free digis!
Also, there is a My Tiny Contest running until January 16 - you won't want to miss it!!!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

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 - well 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

Hey Robin!! Just wanted to stop by and say "hello". :) Hope all is well with you, and that you had a wonderful holiday season.

What a fantastic your colouring on this image. Her hair looks achieved such great texture!
