Ho, Ho, Ho

OMG, get me..... another Crimble card :) This is another image that I had coloured just before Christmas but ran out of time to make it into a card.

The digi image is a freebie from July 2009 by Dustin Pike. It is still available on his blog here if you want to grab it. I chose the current sketch from Totally Gorjuss for the layout

All the items on this card are old and I have used some of my hoarded Prima Pointsettias. I have had those for about 3 years so it's about time I used them really. Yes they look pretty, but they should be on cards not stashed in my room. After not making much last year it feels good to have my mojo back I can tell you :)

Anyhoo, materials used are DCVW papers, the green was a strip I had left which has been treated with a Martha Stewart punch. The text strip is another from a scrap strip of card, you know those L shaped pieces that are left after you have covered a card, well I have actually used some up instead of them getting scrunched up and scratty and you then end up throwing them away.

The image has been coloured with Promarkers with Stickles glitter glue added to the fur trim on the hat and cuffs. Last but not least I have added one of my hoarded HOTP brads that I have had for a very, very long time. Woohoo !! Maybe there is hope for me, my hubby will be so proud of me :)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
