He Loves Ewe

Hi everyone

Hope you are all well. This is a lovely little guy, isn't he? Yet another birthday present from the kids. That's the beauty of having your birthday in the autumn, you can get away with thinking about Christmas and ask everyone for all these yummy stamps for presents.

The Hi Hopes Challenge this week is to keep red and green to a minimum and use non-traditional colours on a Christmas card. I've got a bit of green in here but not in a traditional sense so I'm sure it will be ok. I liked the sketch from the Sugar Bowl so much last week I've used it again. I can see I'm going to use it a lot. I think it looks quite different with a new image and papers.

My card recipe:

Image: Hi Hopes - He Loves Ewe
Sentiments: Just Right Sentiments
Coloured with Faber Castelle Water Colour Pencils
Papers - Signature Christmas by My Minds Eye
Cardstock: Coredinations
Platinum Stickles
Snowflakes: made from white card and acetate and covered with gamour dust and Cosmic Shimmer glitter jewels
Brads from the Hobby House
Tools: Cuttlebug; Nestabilities Snowflakes; plain and scalloped circles; plain and scalloped ovals.
Lace from stash

I really like this image. I hope you like the card as much as I enjoyed making it.
