Friday, February 25, 2011

A very early Friday morning greeting. This has been one of those weeks that has gone fast but seems to have dragged - as you can see from my lack of posts - a week where there was no creativity. The week end is coming so I hope to spend some time creating - it is suppose to snow - one never knows how much. I am going to get my groceries today and then I can hibernate all week end.

My card today is my 2nd Christmas card of the year. I really like the colors and how it turned out. I used a digi stamp from I Brake For Digis and printed it on three different pattern papers. Using my trusty scissors I cut out the tree and car. I did add some color to the car with my Copics (tires and fender) - I also chalked it with blue - to make the blue on the car a little brighter. I cut out the tree and also added brown chalk to the tree to give it a little more depth. I probably should have added some snow to the branches.

Moxie Fab World is having a paper piecing challenge on their blog in celebration of their special issue Stamp It Techniques. I love the flexibility of using digi stamps for paper piecing - you can make the images a little larger so it is easier to cut and piece.

Well I suppose I need to go and get ready to go to work. I think I can make it to the week end.

Size: 4.25 x 5.5
