JB12:07, Happy Hybrid Holiday



Hello all my friends in blog-land! Long time, no post! I just haven't been taking the time to get online at home much, since we have diiiiiiiiaaaaaaalllllllllll-uuuuuuuuuuppppppp. And it's sooooooo sloooooowwwwwwww. LOL Really, it just takes forEVER to do anything productive. But enough dribble, I'm sure you'd all really rather see a card!

This is the card I've concocted for the latest prompt over at Jingle Belles, to use a digital image on your card/project. No problem for me, I love digis and have TONS...but I am always collecting more! This cutie comes from Meljen's Designs, and he is called Snow Bunny. Melissa draws the most ADORABLE animals, doesn't she?? I guess I went pretty traditional with the colors on this image. I had fun adding puffy paint to his hood and sleeve trim! And of course, I snazzed up the snow mounds with some Stickles. Lately, I have been experimenting making flowers out of dryer sheets. Mostly I was just die cutting them with circles and scalloped circles, but this time I decided to try using the Flower Layers Sizzix die. Worked like a charm! The sheet was first sprayed with my own homemade glimmer mist, I let it dry, then die cut it, and added gold Stickles around the edges before assembly. I also crinkled up the layers first too. I'm rather pleased with my results! I haven't added a sentiment yet, just because I didn't take the time to! :) Well, that's it for this long winded post. Take care! :)
