Takin a Little Nap

Hello all, it’s another beautiful day here in the Fraser Valley, the sun is shining and the sky is blue…hard to believe that it’s fall already. Or that Christmas is around the corner…brrrrr. And speaking of Christmas, I just have to show you the adorable image that I just got to play with for our current blog hop at Digistamps4Joy. The image is called Festive Snooze and let me tell you, this little guy looks like he has really enjoyed Christmas.

I coloured it with Staedtler Pencil crayons, oms, and my red and gold glitter pens. I used my homemade white flower soft for the snow at the bottom of the image. I used my SU Christmas Wheel (sorry, I don’t remember the exact name of it) and glitter blue embossing powder to add the flourishes. The frame for the image and sentiment was made with my Nestibilities Scalloped Oval Dies. The base dp is from Bazzil and the glitter paper was some that I have had in my stash for years. I also used the glitter paper to punch out the snowflakes. The ornament is a svg from The Cutting Café. I used my SU ticket corner punch on some of my corners. The card fold is called a Center Step Card and you can find it here.

You can find this adorable image at the Digistamps4Joy store or you can join in on our blog hop and have a chance of winning it when I do my random draw.

Thanks for visiting….Charlene
