YACK !!! - CHRISTMAS :-(

Hello Peeps,
I hope you are looking forward to your crafting weekend. ?
I haven't been down more than a couple of times in my room this week, but - seeing as I totally walked the legs off the Dog this morning - I thought I would give him a rest down here out of the heat. :-)

Not much Mojo about this end but I decided to have a play with my Spectrum Noir pens and pencils.
I wanted to play along for RUDOLPH DAY, so I went to the Chrimbo box and I found a plastic bag with loads of little snippets in and some printed out images ready for colouring.
On a friend's Blog the other day, she had pictures of Hedgies in her garden that made me smile so this little guy is just the thing :-D  If you want to see them , then go visit Di.... HERE 
I coloured up this little " Santa Hedgie " from SPYDER.



The card is a piece of old shoebox and I have tons of snippets of white card lying around, so I used a 'Cuttlebug'  Christmas Tree embossing folder on some of that.  I smurged a bit of green ink pad onto the 'inny' side of the embossing folder and then stuck it through the machine. This would, in fact, be the backside of the finished embossed piece doing it this way, but I liked just the hint of green that it gave me and doing it the other way smurged ink around the image that I didn't want :-D

I found some teeny pieces of an old paper with sentiments on it and used those up too. :-)

Well - there you have it anyways - not really feelin' it this week, and life is definitely 'bleh'  just now  :-(

Thanks for dropping in and I'll catch you All later xxx

  3. Aw, how adorable!! LOVE the idea of the embossed Christmas tree - looks great! And, what a cute little hedgie - I'll have to make a card for our hedgies here I suppose. But, by Christmas they should be safely hibernating :) Rain check maybe? :)) Thanks for the little shout out - oh, and my guess is that the image created by Spyder is also Lynn who loves dogs?

    Hugs

  11. I am so ploeased that you were able to take part in the September Rudolph Days Challenge even though you are not having the best of weeks. I do understand how hoard it is to wrestle time commitments etc and always appreciate the entries.

    Your card looks great. That inked embossing folder tree looks fabulous and perfect with your cute hedgie. I had a little smile when you mentioned the sentiment you used...Mine is the same. I have a wee drawer that I toss Xmas sentiments in and every now and again they come in handy!

    I have updated my post with the photos and second prize rules etc...hope you can stop by again to take a look. Sorry about the delay.
