I made TWO cards (on Monday night no less) using this sketch for two of my co-workers - the guys with whom I actually share DBA responsibilities...
I used the same papers (CTMH Jingle) but switched up the images (from Pink Cat Studio)
Do you recognize Santa's Hat? Harriet was wearing it earlier today! I also played around with the embellishments. As you can see on the penguin card, I used my Spellbinders Create A Flake 1 to make a snowflake to which I attached a sentiment from Cornish Heritage Farms that I cut using one of the smaller of the Nestabilities Labels Four dies (same set I used for the image panels). On Santa, because he already has a sentiment, I added some white dew drops for interest and shifted the image panel.
I did take some liberties with the sketch but I think it works.
I'm taking Wednesday off from work -- to hopefully finish up the last of my Christmas prep and to deliver some Christmas goodies. Then back to work on Thursday for a partial day and MAYBE off to see Avatar in 3-D mid-afternoon, depending on how the Wednesday tasks go. Thanks for stopping by! And if we don't see each other in blog land until after the big day -- Have a VERY MERRY Christmas!
