Cool SnowGirl...

Can you believe it... I'm still in my pj's :)  Yep, I am a slacker... well, I did clean the kitchen... sorta.  ;)  Nothin' like having a day off of work... except when you get a work call at 8:30am.  Good thing I was already up... they might have gotten an earful otherwise {insert evil "mom" eye w/ raised eyebrow here}


On to the good stuff!  Another super simple card today... I don't know what's up.  These little babies where part of the batch of colored images I had done at the downer craft fair in October.  This is such a sweet snowangel, don't-cha think?




I stamped the snowangel and then masked her so I could stamp the bracket label image on the same panel.  The only problem with that is the panel ended up pretty large... no room for embellishing (how sad).  I think I should have totally sucked it up and cut around her & the bracket and layered them up on pretty papers... hmmmm... I may have to make a couple more of these.


Stamps:  Merriest Wishes (snowangel & "You are so cool" sentiment), Ornamental Snowflakes, Thinking of You (Hostess Level C - "Happy Holidays" sentiment), Label Lingo (Hostess Level D - bracket label)

Paper:  Toodle Loo (lt. blue), Lilly Anna (dk. blue), Mia's Cottage (pink) & White UltraSmooth cardstocks

Ink:  Reflection Blue & Noir Palettes
Colorant:  Prismacolor pencils w/ mineral oil blending
Other:  Scor-Pal & Scor-Bug, Stardust Stickles, misc. ribbon


I did stamp off once before stamping the snowflake images... this made them just dark enough.


These six little lovelies bring me up to 74 of my goal of 75 handmade winter holiday cards this year!  Yeah... I don't know why I didn't make just one more either... silly me.  So, one left to do.  Well, until I go through my card list and realize that I actually should make 20 more (how's that for positive thinking?!).


What do you think?
