Hey all, how's it goin? Things here are fairly OK. My hubby and I did some straightening up around the house today in preparation for the Thanksgiving meal (we host). He also worked on finishing getting the outside lights up and running. My daughter is sick, so she has been quarantined in her room all day, resting and not touching things! We stocked up on Clorox wipes and Lysol yesterday, as we are afraid that we will get sick and ruin Thanksgiving!
All that aside, I am here because I want to share with you the card I made for the current challenge at Christmas With The Cuties, where we are showing off our Santa hats!
This Crafty Sentiments image is called Let It Snow. Granted this cutie's hat doesn't look much like a Santa hat, but this was the provided image that I wanted to work with. I chose a paper from a Recollections 12x12 paper pad called Fa La La La, and colored my image to match. The green cardstock layers are also from Recollections. I decided to mix it up a bit this time, and use a Spellbinders scalloped square die to mat my circular image panel. I mixed it up even more by rotating it into the diamond position. I added some details to my alcohol coloring with a white gel pen, some White Blizzard Nuvo drops on the snow, and yellow Stickles on the star. The sentiment comes from one of the Recollections Christmas sets I picked up at Michael's recently.
