TCM Christmas/Winter Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog!
Today The Craft's Meow DT has planned a special Christmas/Winter hop for you today.
The Craft's meow

If you came by the way to the fabulous Nina Brackett, you are right on track. If you are just stopping by for a visit, Thank you and I invite you to head over to The Craft's Meow blog and check out the hop from the beginning! The DT has some amazing projects to share that will without a doubt inspire you to get going on your Christmas/Winter projects!

My first card uses Christmas Angel illustrated by Nina B Designs.

I colored the angel with copics and added just a touch of stickles here and there for interest.
The card base is Spellbinders Grand Labels 23. The Angel is cut out with
Spellbinders Labels 17. I kept the embellishments to a minimum to keep the photo on the beautiful Angel.

My second card uses Winter Fibi & Lilly, 'OChristmas Tree and the November Sketch.
(Remember you have until November 30th @ 9pm Pacific to play along with us.)
 
As you can see I flipped the sketch. I also chose to use non-traditional Christmas colors.
I colored this adorable kitty with copics and added stardust stickles to her cuffs, buttons, scarf and the band on the earmuffs. I used rock Candy stickles on the puffy part of the earmuffs and Frosted Lace stickles on the snow flakes.
The pattern papers are My Minds Eye - 6x6 My Favorite Things.
 
Make sure to leave a comment on the TCM blog by Wednesday Nov. 14th @ 9pm Pacific to be eligible to win a in-stock stamp set of your choice.
 The Craft's Meow is also having a Holiday Stamp Set Sale...holiday stamp sets are 15% off for three days only (through Thursday, November 15th.)
Now I am going to send you on your way to the blog of the very talented Veronica!
Enjoy the rest of the hop!!
