Hello my blogland friends! I hope you had a good Friday, Veteran's Day! Let me take this opportunity to say "THANK YOU!" to all those who have fought and those who are fighting now for all the freedoms we hold dear. I was off today, and so were the girls, so Chad made us pancakes for breakfast (mmmmm!), and then we went outside to clean up the mess our summer garden had become. It was cold and windy today, so we tried to work quickly. BRRRR!!!!!
So, onto what you came for...a card! I was reading Deanne's blog the other day when she posted about the sketch challenge going on at the StampFairy challenge blog, so I went over to have a look. I thought the sketch looked like something I could manage, so I saved it to print off later (I was at Dunkin' Donuts taking advantage of their free Wi-Fi!). I had already had this adorable Patches Christmas colored and ready to go, so I decided he was taking center stage on this card. I used a SB sqaure die to cut him out, and sponged around him in red while he was still in the die. Matted him in green using the next size up in the SB squares. I don't know if you can see them, but there are really faint snowflakes on the red dp. That paper and the candy cane strip both came from a pack of Christmas paper from Recollections. I'm lovin' the glittery green circle cut from glitter paper bought from the dollar bin at Jo-Ann Fabrics last year! Not sure where I got the green ribbon from, but I can tell you that trying to come up with the "perfect bow" almost gave me fits!! Three little red square gems from my large stash completed this card for me! I rather like how this card came out in the end...I hope you do too! It's late, so I'll talk to ya later! Take care!
