Crafty Critters Challenge #11

THANK YOU VETERANS FOR ALL YOUR DEDICATION AND SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY. MAY GOD BLESS YOU!

Hello everyone! We're out of school today....Yippee! Which means I'm off work...which means I get to craft today!!!! My house is about 80% clean (hee!) so I say that gives me some crafting time. Don't you think? *wink*

This is my card for our Crafty Critters Challenge #11
We had to use sketch240 from SCS.
We couldn't use red or green.
We had to use stickles and ribbon.
Had to be Christmas themed
I think I covered all the requirements.
Here's mine:


The image is a digi from Dustin Pike. This is one of 30 images I got from him when I donated some cards to a Children's Hospital he was giving to.
I started with grey bazzil c/s and inked around it with basic black ink. The bottom panel is a piece of misc. snowflake paper, then basic black c/s. I 'snowed' the black c/s with white chalk then placed a piece of sheer white ribbon over that. The snowflake is cut from that misc. snowflake paper. I inked around the image with basic black ink. I colored the image with my Bic MarkIt Markers and used stickles on the Snowman's smile and at the bottom of him. His rosey cheeks are Pretty in Pink chalk. The sentiment is from a clear set I got from QVC, stamped in basic black, cut out and popped up. The image is also up on dimensionals.

I'm off to stamp some more! Yay! I rarely get a day that I can dedicate to crafting. I'm taking full advantage :)

Until next time...
Blessings...
