Merry Crittermas

DSCF7383

Happy Saturday, peeps!  Hope you’re having a great weekend so far! Thank you so much for the anniversary wishes!  We had a lovely day, did some thrift store shopping and then had a nice meal and John got the BIGGEST prime rib I have ever seen.  I wish I had a smart phone so I could share it with you.  It was humongous!!!

I have been neglectful in making my weekly Christmas cards since leaving my friends at Merry Monday, and I know I will regret it if I don’t get a headstart for the next Christmas season!  When I saw Katie’s hysterical inspiration photo for this week’s challenge, I knew I HAD to play along!  Check this out:
Just tooo cute!  I also used the Match The Sketch for this week:
and incorporated the colors from the Curtain Call challenge:



And here is my card featuring the little bunny from the retired SU set called Merry Crittermas:

This is a little more involved than what I normally do for a Christmas card, but it was fun to do some painting and add a few more embellishments than I normally do!  I stamped the wee bunny on a piece of Whisper White, watercolored him in Island Indigo, Strawberry Slush, Crumb Cake and Soft Sky, then fussy cut him out and mounted him on his snowy hill:

I added some Frosted Sequins from the holiday mini along with a few from my stash. My other embellishment is a bow tied with Strawberry Slush baker’s twine, using my one-hole bow technique so it doesn’t slide around!  Of course, I added some snowy glitter too!  So fun!  Thanks for visiting today, and be sure to stop back tomorrow where I am the hostess at the Paper Players!

She is just growing up tooooo fast!  Doesn’t she look like she’s about 12 here?

  2. What a pose! Cassidy looks like she has her thumb in the belt loop, something I can't do any more thanks to more weight gain...
