Cute and Cuddly

Hello everyone,

A super quick post as I will surely be turning into a pumpkin soon if I don't go to bed.  A new challenge starts today over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' and this month our theme is 'cute and cuddly using non-traditional colours.'  Could it get any more complicated?  I assure you I had absolutely nothing to do with choosing this theme... Ok, it might be mostly my fault.  But hopefully you will be inspired to play along anyway :)  and be one Christmas card closer to freedom in December.  Here is what I came up with:


Supplies:

Stamps - House Mouse, sentiment by LOTV
Paper - a scrap from my stash
Colouring - distress inks (black soot, tattered rose, seedless preserves)
Dies - Spellbinders timeless rectangles & poinsettia, Memory box flourish (cut apart)
Other - pearls

Our fab sponsor, Flat Friends is offering one lucky winner their choice of 4 digis, so come and play!



I would like to enter my card in these fun challenges:

Alphabet Challenge - I for image
Winter Wonderland - four legged friends

Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to leave a comment.  I appreciate each one and love having the chance to visit you too.

Hugs, 

Dawn

Hi Dawn,

A great way of using this HM image, Dawn. While all the design elements are fabulous, I am especially taken with the simplicity of the colors - and the gentle glow of the Christmas tree lights. It's beautiful - and has been pinned! hugs, de
