Christmas Cutie

Happy weekend everyone! We're getting ready to head out to the skating rink with the kids, and that's probably where we'll be every weekend until spring, lol. We bought the kids skates last year and it's turning into a great way for them to burn off some energy during the winter months. Thankfully we have one right in our community that we can normally go to.

I finally had a chance to ink up one of these cute stamps from the "Greeting Card Kids" stamp set, isn't she cute! I used our Idea Book for colour inspiration for this card, I'm not normally a fan of pink for a Christmas colour but it's nice to get out of our comfort zone every once in a while.

I paper pieced her jacket and the rest is coloured in with a blender pen and ink. I also used one of our new wheels, Music Notes. I used heat & stick powder to adhere the dazzling diamonds glitter to the snowflake.

Stamps: Greeting Card Kids, Merry Crittermas, Music Notes (wheel)
Paper: Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla, Watercolour, Always Artichoke
Ink: Always Artichoke, Black, Blushing Bride, Basic Grey, So Saffron
Other: Dazzling Diamonds, Crochet Trim, Jumbo Brads

Thanks for stopping by! Hope your having a great weekend!!
