Hello Lovlies, I’m a bit late with this post, should have been yesterday as that was the first of the month but I was running around chasing my tail, or so it seemed.
So here is my card for Crafty Hazel’s Christmas Extra for this month, as always we’re sponsored by the fantastic Bugaboo Stamps who offer the winner seven stamps of their choice.
I mentioned the other week that 2015 is the Chinese Year of the Sheep, so when I saw this image from Bugaboo I knew I was making my next card with him! Just LOVE that startled sheepy expression on his face!
As always, I coloured with Prisma pencils and added Black Diamond Stickles to his hooves, Frosted Lace to his fleece and Crystal to his hat trim and pom pom. He was cut out with a Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangle die. The papers are all DCWV and the red card is from The Paper Company. The ribbon and pearls are from Michaels, the snowflake is a Fiskars punch and the sentiment came with the image. It was cut with a Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles Die and edged with Distress Ink in Festive Berries, as were the red and grey papers. The LO is the current one from Sketch and Stash.
The main image was also popped up on foam tape too, which you can see better at this angle.

I think we must be chasing the same tail. I’m woefully late with a couple of challenges. I love this digi and have it myself. The look on his face just cracks me up. Hugs Mrs A.

It’s not nice to trick old ladies! The arrangement on commenting is different! Such a cute Christmas card! But this cute “thang” looks warm and he needs to be in your neck of the woods.
Aw Brenda – what a cute woolly jumper! No wonder you love him so much – can’t help but smile here – and your whole card is gorgeous! Very classy!
