Inky Antics Christmas

Hello!!!   I received this Inky Antics stamp a few years back as a freebie.  I don't think I ever colored it up until now!!!  I know of one blogging friend who just LOVES snowmen, so I made sure to send her a card with this image on it.

I wanted to keep the card pretty flat for mailing, so I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder for dimension and added a few snowflake brads.  I used my Distress Inks to color in the image onto watercolor paper.

I also wanted to share our 2011 Christmas card that we mailed out. (Sorry for the picture quality)
.









And, what you can't see is on the reverse is a picture of Layla and it says: "From Heaven above, Layla sends her love."

awwwwwwww

Thanks for your visit!

Love, love, love your annual holiday photo card, Maria! All your sweet fur babies just make me smile, and the photos of you and your hubby are wonderful. :) And I love your winter snowman card, too. Such a sweet image. Fabulous coloring. Every time I see you color an image, I think in my head how I wish I could learn a few tips from you! Love the snowflake brads and all the embossing, too.
