Christmas with Lucy

Lucy the Mouse, that is! Welcome to my stop on The Angel Company Deck the Halls - Christmas Blog Hop! I've had this adorable Angel Company set by Mabelle RO sitting on my desk for a week now, just begging to be used, so I knew just which image I would color for my blog hop project! I stamped Lucy with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto watercolor paper and watercolored her with Tombow Markers before cutting her out with an oval Nesties die.

Here's the outside of the card in a close up...
As for the inside... I'd seen a cute idea on Taylor VanBruggen's blog to make a pouch for some Starbucks VIA coffee singles, and thought that would be a perfect gift for a dear friend. The flavored coffee VIA packets, though, are a little bigger than the normal ones, and Taylor hadn't given any directions, so I had to just play around a little with my Scor-Pal and a scissors until VOILA...

I had made my very own little pouch for the inside of the card! I cut the entire card from a 12 x 12 sheet and it's basically a normal size card with a pocket that folds over on the bottom half. I am *not* a very good 3-d girl, so I was pleased that it turned out at all!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! And be sure to visit the Savvy Projects Blog for the whole list of hoppers. There are always such good ideas!!!

Blessings!

Tricia
