Ho, Ho, and Ho


Happy Ho, Ho, and Ho (or maybe that should be meow)!  I used a stamp set and die from Simon Says Stamp and DP from SU.  Colored up these little guys a bit and paper pieced the short dogs hat.  The "snow" embossing folder is from Sizzix and really not the same as the Kars one but it'll do in a crunch.  The bottom was cut and glittered up with some Rock Candy distress glitter - almost looks like dirty snow against that bright white!

I'll enter this in the challenge at Addicted to Clean and Simple (code word - Pet) and also in Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets).



Thanks for stopping by........

Hi Lynn, oh how cute these pets are. I liked the one with the paper pieced hat. The candy cane paper matches so well. And the snow looks nice too.
Love,

I so love this sensational holiday card, Lynn! What a delight!

Benzi said...

Lynn, this is soooo cute. I love your little guys and the paper piecing, too. Good that you gave them some snow. That is the folder I got, too, because of not being able to get the Kars. Looks as if we missed out on that one. :-)
You used a wonderful sentiment, too.

I sent you an email yesterday about Bama. Hope it didn't go to your spam.

Love it!You manage to find the cutest critter images, and color them up so well. Loved your paper piecing on the little hat too. I'm liking this Sizzix EF too. But do let me know if you want some more of the Kars until they get the idea, and get some stocked around. Hope you're not exhausted from getting ready for all the company & the big day/ TFS & Hugs

Love this image. Great card! Love the sentiment - is that a die? awesome. Did someone mention yellow snow? oh wait you said dirty snow!

Marilyn said...

Love this card and I think my favourite thing on here is that dotted hat! I`ve been eyeing up those stamps and dies but haven`t bought any yet (I just might now though). That folder looks great... I looked all over for the Kars and nothing so I did buy this one.

Alissa said...

This card really caught my eye. I love that you are never afraid to use white backgrounds and "jazz" them up with pops of color and embossing techniques.

Loll Thompson said...

This is just the cutest image ... love your colors ... and the coloring. The embossed background added lots of texture and the striped border is bright and cheerful! Great job. Thanks for joining us at ATCAS. Loll xx
