So what I have today is my Christmas/Winter Swap cards for Speedy the Cat ... the swap is to make 4 cards and get 3 back in return...so am looking forward to adding the "new" ones to my collection. I actually really enjoyed making these cards and did make 3 of my own to send out at Christmas! I will get those cards done yet!
This is also for Stamp Tv's Monday challenge of decorate your envelope to go with any card. (Here is the website)
I used Mark's Finest Christmas Postage Due Stamps. This is the greatest set and has so many different ways in which you can use it. I really like working with it. I used Ladybug red, Cottage Ivy and Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored with Copics, Sakura glitter pens and added some Ranger clear glossy accent for the glasses and also Flower Soft Polar Fleece for the beard and fur on the hats. The Spellbinders curved rectangles were used for the diecuts. It was white MFP white, red cs and Recollections Sugar Plum dp and polka dot cs.
I also did the envelope...used a DRS postage stamp and colored with Copics and Sakura glitter and rub on stickies for a little deco.
Happy Holidays early!
