There'll be parties for hosting...marshmallows for toasting...and caroling out in the snow...

ETA: Got a new, clear pic for you! Hooray!

Hey, y'all! Thanks so much for all the love you left me on my last few posts. You gave me warm fuzzies!
Speaking of fuzzies, I have a card for you...and the picture is horrid, I know. I'll get a better one in the morning, but it'll do for now, k? And welcome back the Shannan you all know and love...yes, the one who takes a sketch, twists it, turns it, and makes a card completely opposite of what it's supposed to be. Here's the sketch:

See? Turn your head, cross your eyes, and you might see the resemblance in my card:

No? Well, let's look.
Large rectangle panel...CHECK.
Two small offset rectangles...CHECK, CHECK.
Three little dots on one corner...CHECK.
Square card...CHECK.
Seeeeeee???? I did it right, didn't I??? *wink*

Anywho, I used a new image from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps...her name is Piper. Isn't she adorable?? I stamped her in Black Stazon on Arches Hot Press Watercolor paper, then watercolored her with a water brush and reinkers. Except for the hair, which was done with Copic markers. I was dead set on using this image, so most of the time I spent on this card was trying to make everything fit on my 5 1/4" card base. So, Mercy, you can blame Piper. It's all her fault. Here's a closer look at her:

Don't forget to go visit Mercy and see her fabulous card, as well as Jessie's...our December guest! While you're at it, check out the rest of the muses, who I'm sure did not butcher the sketch like I did! *giggle*
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
