Sending Hugs


I wanted to make a card for the Share Joy challenge on this snowy morning, but my stamp room is such a disaster that I needed LOTS of inspiration!!  Soooooo.... I took the theme from the Curtain Call...


and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches...



and came up with this...



Now why I didn't use the sketch from the Share Joy challenge is beyond me.  I think my mind shut off halfway, KWIM?  So apparently that means that this must be a clean and simple card.  :)  And, while it is fairly clean and there is lots of white  blue space, I think it is more clean and layered.  Sigh!  Hopefully they'll let me play anyway!  I think I'll tuck this in a Christmas package to a friend that will be going out this week.

I watercolored the sweet little fox from the Ready, Set, Snow set from Taylored Expressions with my Distress Markers and used some cool adhesive cork paper that I got from Stamp Simply, as well as some patterned paper from the Pebbles Winter Wonderland pad, for my background.  A little twine and some sparkly snowflakes (that I got as an incentive in my last Gina K order) added some texture.  The sentiment is from TE's So Much Love set.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

I love that sweet image - and you've backed it so perfectly with the soft snowflakes and the cork paper.
