Jake's Buddy:


Good morning all - I hope you have had a great Monday and that Tuesday will be even better.

I apologize for not being around too much lately, my shoulders are back up to no good these past couple of weeks.  My cards are taking longer than ever, with many breaks in between.  The sooner I am out of my craft room and off the computer I always feel just a little bit better.

So with that being said, I will have a lot of CAS cards this week, they are just easier and quicker to do, and my shoulders thank me at the end of the night :)

This week StampFairy is sponsoring Top Tip Tuesday's 2nd week Christmas challenge.

I used this little cutie Jake, and once again, did not colour his snow buddy.  When I colour snowmen, snowladies, snowflakes or just snow, they look d-i-r-t-y.  So my trick is to shade around snow.

Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, Echo Park papers, DCWV and Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils, American Crafts jute, Gelly Roll white pen.  Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, EK Success corner punch.

I made this card for the following challenges:  'ABC' Challenge and 4 Crafty Chicks - snowmen, One Stop Craft - friends, Totally Papercrafts - for the boys, Winter Wonderland - red/blue, Moving Along with the Times - CAS.

Have a wonderful Tuesday and I will see you all again tomorrow!
