A Christmas Post

Happy Saturday! A very crisp fall day here in Indiana. The sun is shining but there is a definite chill in the air. We had a frost last night. Most of the leaves are down except our front two maple trees. They are always the last to shed their brilliant red leaves.
Another Christmas card today. This card has so many layers it's a bit front heavy. I had a hard time photographing it. It didn't want to stay upright.


The image is from Di's digis and is the progressive digi for November at The Outlawz. I colored the digi with Copic markers and used some ideas that I saw on the 30 Day of Coloring challenge. I die cut the image with MFT Inside and Out Stitched Rounded Squares.  The sentiment is from When the Scrap Hits the Fun and die cut with Gina Marie Designs Cross Stitch Rectangles and inked with Mowed Lawn distress ink. The polka dot paper is from Recollections Home Basics Collections. I added some Sharpie white poster paint to create some white snowflakes falling. Difficult to see in the photo. The other pieces are scraps from my scrap box. I used the Tuesday Morning Sketch as inspiration.


I am entering these challenges:
That's it for me today. We have dinner and an evening out tonight so I'm looking forward to some down time. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Simply adorable image, of course colored beautifully too. Loving the shapes, colors and patterns of the layers and the way you've arranged them. Really cheery & happy feel to this cutie. We've not yet had a frost, it's been a very warm autumn. Think that is about to change tho. Most of the oak & maple trees around here, leaves on the ground. Hope the babies are thriving. TFS & Happy wkend. Hugs

I love those kind of days - the sun shining but the temperature is still on the chilly side. Makes for a great day of baking and homemade pot of soup simmering away. I live in FL - you can imagine I don't get many of those days.

Your card is super adorable! That mice are so sweet and I love the blend of textures. Thank you for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.
