Let the Christmas Holiday begin!

our current challenge is
GET FESTIVE!
I chose to use one of my favorite Stampendous images.
He was originally released for Halloween, but serves nicely as a Christmas owl
when you add snow and a touch of holiday red! 
 
 
I was away from my computer when I colored this image, so I wasn't as secure about the
colors as I would have been had I Googled owls.
 
 
Colored with Copics, I love the pop of red on his belted top hat and bowtie!
 
 
The snow on the branches is a bit difficult to see in the photo,
but gives texture and dimension on the card IRL!  :)
 
 
This is how the easel card will appear in the 6 x 6 envelope when I mail it out.
Papers used were DCWV, several of their 6 x 6 stacks of glitters and foils!
 
Please check out the new challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend!
And please leave a comment so I know you stopped by!
I love the company!

Celebrating Fall with Bugaboo!

This upcoming challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend
is all about Fall!

My grandson very recently became a BIG brother,
and I know that a lot of attention is going to the new baby!

 
I thought this card would be a great way to remind him
 that Grandma has not
forgotten her "used-to-be-little", big boy!
We are also celebrating his making the
"Principal's List" 
(apparently that's a good thing!)
 
 
Using Bugaboo "BB Bratz Ruler Boy" image.
 
 
I popped up the little guy so he sits comfortably on the ruler.
The sentiment is an old rub-on from my stash.
 
If I stick this in the mail today,
he will have it before I see him again!
He loves getting mail!
 
Thanks for joining us at Stampin' For the Weekend!
