Christmas in September

Hi there!

A new challenge has seen the light of day over at the Scrapbook Stamp Society challenge blog. Anything goes – but a card. Well, being new to this design/challenge blog stuff, I made this card and when it was done, I found the theme for the challenge shouldn’t have been a card. Well, it’s still an anything goes project and now we’re celebrating Christmas in September too LOL.
I’ve used Sherri Ann Baldy IMG701. You can find it by clicking the image no.


I couldn’t help it, but I had to buy this image, when I saw it. Maybe because of the candy house, or maybe just because he’s so cute and adorable. Anyway, I loved colouring him and putting the card together. 

I have used the following Copic markers for the project:

Skin: E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 and E04
Eyes: B28, B14 and B12
Fur on hat: 100, C7, C5, C3 and C1
Clothes: RV69, RV66. V06, V05 and V01
Peppermints: R27
Candy: Y15, YG03 and RV55
Icing: C1
House: E15 and E13
Cake figure: E18 and E15
Hedgehog slippers:                  Antlers – E18
                                                     Nose – RV10
                                                     Body – RV10, RV55, E18, E15 and E11
                                                     Soles – C5
I had a candy cane sticker, which I put on as embellishment together with some purple flower gems, two big felt flowers that matched the colours on his clothes and finally a SimplyBStamps sentiment.

I hope you like my project. Feel free to leave a message to let me know.

Be Happy Crafting!
