Santa Pulling the Sled

Good Morning Ladies,
I bought some new shoes the other day. They are Reebok's with memory foam. They felt a little weird at first but now I am loving them. They are a great shoe for long hours on your feet.
The card for today is Santa Pulling the Sled
This card is my first attempt at Inktense pencils. The Santa and reindeer image is from High Hopes. It was stamped on watercolor paper. It was then colorized using the inktense pencils and stickles. The snowflakes are from Creative Expressions. They have a pearl added to the center.
The inside sentiment is from one of the new CTMH Christmas sets from this year.
Happy Scraps,

Polar Bear Flip-It

Good Morning Ladies,
Tomorrow is the craft show and I am ready. I am looking forward to having a good time. I have not done a show for years so this will be interesting to see how things have changed over the years. Dru and I will have a lot of things to offer to you. If you are local hope to see you at Indian Trail School this Saturday from 9-2.

This card started with a Sizzix Flip-It die. It was cut from red cardstock. Next the panels were cut out of a TPS Christmas pad. The circles were cut out of Bristol paper. The polar bear was stamped on one of the circles. The polar bear image is from Stampin' Up. He was colorized using Prisma pencil, Gamsol, and art Deco pen, and stickles. A snowflake from Creative Expressions with a pearl in the center was added. A sheer white ribbon tied in knot tops this card off.

Circus Tiger Ornament

Good Morning Ladies,
The cold weather is not my favorite thing. And it has come in fast this year. I will now really have to pull the long johns out. I can wait no longer.
Today's project is Circus Tiger Ornament
This ornament was created on a paper mache' base. I picked up some Viva Decor modeling paste in the color of gold at Hobby Lobby. It was off the clearance shelf and it was marked way down. So I thought why not?. It is something new to play with. Well I love it. It was put down on the base using a palette knife. No need for adhesive as the ring master and tiger sank right down in to it. It also gave the piece texture. The sides are glittered in nebuli. This ornament is topped off with ribbon and jingle bells.

The glittered sides. I love the way it turned out.
