Christmas is coming ...

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Today I have a pair of holiday cards to share with you.
McGuire shared last week but switched it up a little.  Still used the
same idea but made it a card front panel on a full A6 card.


The stamp & die sets I have used on today's card are:

Lawn Fawn - Critters In The Forest Stamps


Lawn Fawn - Critters In The Forest Dies
After stamping & die cutting my tree, I colored it with
Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  Then stamped the image
again onto masking medium and cut it out to
use for masking the tree and creating my night sky.

Tim Holtz distress inks & large sponge daubers were used for the sky
and a white gelly roll pen was used for the stars.
Hero Arts stamps finished my design.


Challenges to share in:

Christmas with the Cuties Challenge #10 - Christmas Animals
Lost Coast Designs Challenge #41 -  Animals
The Crazy Challenge #258 - Add an animal

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope your week is going along smoothly!!

As Always . . .

Super cute and sweet and I love it! Your sky is beautiful. I remember how you said you always have to put something in the sky, like birds or whatever. This time it's Santa and his reindeer sleigh and it looks perfect!
