Ski Jumping is FUN!! and SWEET STUFF!!!
A very happy Thursday to everyone!! I'm sure that you are all busy getting ready for the holiday season...so just enjoy!!!
My card today is for no special reason except that I wanted to play with this sweet little fun-loving image from LOTV called Ski Jump...and isn't he having a fun time with his cute little puppy!!!! I used Bazzill for the base and double matting, the DP is from the Winter Park Paper Pad by Echo Park, and all background layers are machine stitched. The image was stamped on X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding Prisma Glitter to the snowflakes, and a combination of Liquid Applique, glitter, and Twinklets for the icy snow on the ground, then cutting him out with Nesties. I also added a touch of Doodlebug Flock to his hat. For the horizontal I used 1/2" Burgundy Satin Ribbon tied into a double flat bow to dangle a couple of Miniature Gold Bells. The flower treatments are all from Wild Orchid Crafts: 1 3/8" Trellis Roses, 1" Open Rose, and Carnations resting on Holly Leaves. The flowers were all frosted with Twinklets and are resting on glittery snowflake ornaments. Oh I almost forgot...at the bottom of the horizontal you can barely detect a MS Icicle punched band which I covered with Prisma Glitter. To finish the front I used some Self-Adhesive Pearls.
On the first panel on the inside I used more of the glittery snowflake ornaments topped with flat bows. For the jotting panel I used an organza envelope to hold a card for a wee note and I hope you can detect that on the card I used North Pole Express postmark from the LOTV Grunge Christmas Postmarks set and smaller glittery snowflakes with pearls to decorate the envelope.
SWEET STUFF for my FOLLOWERS...As I am re-organizing for my move to the cottage, you cannot believe how many things I am finding that are duplicates in my stash....sigh...and some things which I KNOW I will never have a use for. So I will continue to offer them here because one of you may be interested...
I found an extra set of the LOTV For You Circular Sentiments which as you can see have so many different occasions covered. I have them in the original rubber and now these newer ones are offered as clear stamps and these have never been used. I ordered these without realizing that I already had a set... You know that I will also add some other goodies to the package. So if my FOLLOWERS will just leave your info with the Blue Froggy (or if you don't have a blog, leave a comment with your email address) before Friday, December 16 at midnight EST you may be the lucky winner!! Good luck!!
And another thing....
I also found this Spellbinders Grand Rose Borderability that measures 12" long and I have no earthly idea why I even bought this...I think I thought it would be much smaller than it really is and of course I love roses BUT this one was not for me!! haha...but someone may have a real need or use for it especially in scrapbooking...certainly I don't!! So if you want this brand new in package Spellbinder or know of someone who does, please send me an email with Rose Borderability in the Subject Line and I will put this huge die into your home ASAP!!
Thank you so much for dropping by today and I hope that your holiday season is going smoothly and that your stresses are minimal!! Have a wonderful day and remember that I will be back very soon with more surprises from Whimsy, my Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge card on Friday, and another real cutie at SUNDAY SENSATIONS from Magnolia-licious!! Hugs to all!!
