A NEW NAME FOR 2CCC, AND SOME CHANGES -- OCTOBER 1, 2021

Hello, crafty friends!  Welcome back to my blog.  In case you didn't know, 2 Crafty Critter Crazies very last challenge was last month's, and the challenge blog was going to close unless someone else wanted to jump in and keep it going.  For awhile, it looked as though things were coming to an end, but then in swooped Kleido to save the blog from ending!  So now, the new name for the challenge is Critter Crazy Challenges, and we no longer have any sponsors, but are just for fun.  You can read all about the changes in the September 27th blog post.

So, for my first post under the new changes, I made an easel card using this awesome Paper Nest Dolls image called Sleigh Ride Owen:

I love that Owen is taking his little puppy along for the ride, and their penguin buddy has joined the fun!  I colored this image very simply with alcohol markers, and die cut it using Spellbinders Curved Rectangles next to largest die.  With the largest die in the set, I cut the necessary pieces to make the easel card, and inked the top layer and the inside with Speckled Egg oxide ink.  To create the sentiment, I dug out a Recollections stamp and die set for the word "snow," and cut it 5 times from a scrap of Accent Opaque white 100lb. cardstock.  After adhereing the 5 layers together, I glittered it up with the same Star Dust Stickles I used for the snow on the image.  The word "much" comes from the Honey Bee Stamps Kindness set, and "fun!" comes from Lawn Fawn's Oh What Fun set.  These were stamped with Versamark and heat embossed on black.  Having glued the sentiment in place, I thought the bottom looked rather empty, so I dug out this snowflake die from Momenta, and cut this line of snowflakes from another scrap of the same cardstock.  Sparkle and shine was added with my clear Wink of Stella brush pen, and some random iridescent jewels were added to the snowflake centers.  Here are 2 more pics:
