A December Whimsie Doodles Challenge

Happy Friday Everyone!

2 more days till Christmas!  Is everyone ready?  I am and I can't wait.  This Christmas we are having a relatively small Christmas with the emphasis on family being together.  I love it!

As you know I found Whimsie Doodles Digi Stamps last month and fell in love with their adorable digi stamps.  I knew I wanted to play along with this month's challenge.  The challenge was to use this sketch and create a card using one of their stamps.  Here is the sketch.

Here is my take.

For this card I used their adorable smowman.  I colored part of him uisng my pencils and a bit of gamsol.  I then printed him out again on some October Afternoon paper and cut out the pieces for his hat and scarf.  I then added some buttons.  For the kraft background I heat embossed the snowflakes. The card itself is made from October Afternoon.  The light blue snowflake paper was just perfect for this card!    I LOVE how it turned out!

Supplies
paper- october afternoon
cardstock-neenah solar white
stamps- whimsie doodles, hero arts
ink- tim holtz distress ink
pencils- prsimacolors
buttons- basic grey
tools and misc.- sewing maching, fiskars border punch, gamsol, michael's embossing powder

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope everyone has a wonderful and crafty day!
