My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

SNSS- Oh Christmas Tree - MMSC27




My card today is made using the Gorgeous Digi image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Oh Christmas Tree designed by the ever so talented Leah Cornelius.   Isn't it just the cutest thing!  Too bad you can't see all of the sparkle from the glitter.  The little birdie is putting the star on the top and the bunny is putting the balls on. You can pick up this image along with another tree and two sayings for the fantastic price of only $3.75.

This weeks sketch from Midnight Madness  is just perfect for this image 

This card is also a Cute Card Thursday "Glitter Me Silly" Challenge 86.

The DP I used is Eskimo Kisses from Basic Grey.
The image was printed on my computer and colored with Copic Markers.
The sky was chalked with Blue.
Yellow Glitter was applied to the star in the Bird's mouth and Red Stickles was used on the balls.

Matching green embroidery floss was used for the hand stitching around the card.
White Liquid applique was used for the snow on the ground and Diamond Dust glitter was applied before heating.
White Liquid applique was used on the tree and Prisma Glitter added after heating.

The snowflake is a Spellbinders Die and Prisma Glitter was added to it.
White Half pearls used in the corners and center of snowflake.
Red Grosgrain ribbon runs across the middle of the card.
The white corner pieces is a Spellbinders Medallion square that I cut in half.

Nancy this is just as sweet and adorable as can be, it touches my heart with the cute little animals decorating the tree in the forest. Your stitching looks great and the pearls are the perfect little accent. Thanks so much for playing with us at Midnight Madness. We enjoy viewing your work!!!

This is so sweet, Nancy! You have such an incredible eye for the details. I love the snow on the branches and the little bits that you glittered up -- very festive but still has that woodsy feel. Just beautiful!
