 Hello friends, welcome back to my blog!  It's the 3rd Sunday of the month, which means a brand new Anything Goes challenge over at the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends blog.  This challenge is being sponsored by:

I was lucky enough to choose an image to use for this challenge, and I chose the absolutely ADORABLE Sledging Pup image for my card:

I have been eyeing this cute fella up for a while now, and I am so happy to finally have him in my collection!  I think his sweater is just too sweet, and he looks like he is having the most fun!  I wonder if he got on the sled and is going down the hill all by himself, or did he have some help? ๐Ÿ˜Š To assemble my card, I first dug through my 6x6 paper pads looking for inspiration when I found this gorgeous snowflake paper that comes from the Craft Smith Ice Crystals paper pad.  I got it at Michael's a few years ago, so it probably isn't still available, but if you happen to have this one, here's how you could use it!  The snowy hill is made from a piece of Recollections ink jet printable glitter paper die cut with a die from the Stitched Hillside Borders from Lawn Fawn.  I'm so glad I got that paper pad (actually I got 2!) a few years ago, as it makes the perfect snow, and it's a nice weight.
Now, the sweet image was colored with Copics, and I added some shimmer and shine using a red gel pen for the little berries on his sweater, a clear pen over the hearts, and a silver one on the runners of the sled.  The sentiment is also from Lawn Fawn and is part of the Winter Big Scripty Words stamp and die sets.  I stamped the sentiment with Fired Brick oxide ink using my MISTI.  The pup is adhered with foam tape and everything else is adhered down flat.  And that's it!
