First Christmas card of 2016, and some exciting news!

Hmmmm, should I share my card first or my exciting news?  Lemme see, eeny, meeny, miney, moe, catch a tiger by his toe, if he hollers let him go, eeny, meeny, miney, moe!
OK, ok, you wrangled it outta me....I'm one of the newest design team members for Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra!!!!!!  I'm so excited!!!  This is my first ever DT position, and I'm super honored that Hazel has chosen me for her FAB team!  I get to work with Bugaboo digis all the time too, which is an added bonus!  So I guess that leads me into sharing my card then:

Isn't this the cutest image??  It's called Meowy Christmas Cats, and can be found here.  I went super CAS with my first DT card, keeping it all one layer.  I used Prismacolor markers to color my kitty trio.  The brim and pompom of the Santa hat are decorated with white Puffy Paint, and I smeared on some Stickles after I dried it.  Spending some time looking at this card, I should probably add some ground for the kitties to sit on, instead of floating in air like that...LOL!  Poor kitties!

  9. Like the kitties. Especially like the puffy paint. What brand of puffy paint do you use? I have a Marvy Snow marker pen but when I use it does not look as nice as yours. TY for visiting & commenting on my shaker card. Commented back and happy to let you know that Michaels had the punch that I broke and exchanged/replaced it at no cost.

  12. Marie, I was looking for your email address but did not find so I'll answer your question about the MISTI. I like the MISTI a lot. I can line up stamps and stamp with proper amt of ink so much better when using the MISTI. I rarely use my blocks. I bought the MISTI for $50 shortly after it came out directly from the woman of My Sweet Petunia that made it. When you stamp a clear or cling stamp and you do not get enough ink stamped onto your cardstock or whatever you are stamping on first time you can reink and stamp again.
