Have a Bright & Sparkly Christmas!

Mornin' hens!  Isn't this little guy ADORABLE?  I made 13 of these!!  I guess you can tell I love to color, cuz' there was a lot of it with this image.  Tee-hee!  The image is stamped directly onto the Kraft cardstock and colored with Copics and Faber Castell pencils.  I added some Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to the lightbulbs to give them a little shine and twinkle.

I cut the sentiment into thirds and only stamped the top and bottom lines in black.  Then I stamped the Bright & Sparkly separate using Versamark ink and added some red glitter embossing powder.  You can see the sparkle in the photo below.  It's even prettier in person. 

To finish, I added some red & white baker's twine to the bottom, rounded the corners, and then added some faux stitching lines around the edge.  Awww, there's no friends like SNOW FRIENDS!  Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  I hope you hens have a TWINKLING Thursday!  {{{hen hugs}}}

The best way to spread Christmas cheer...

... is singing loud for all to hear!  Tee-hee!  Are you smiling?  Smiling's my FAVORITE!  LOL!  Needless to say, "Elf" is my all time favorite Christmas movie!  Lil' Chick and I sit and watch it every year together.  Love, love, love it!  
So, when I saw this sentiment in a stamp, it's was a given I was gonna buy it.  

I stamped the little girl and bear onto some Neenah Classic Crest CS and then paper pieced the girl's coat and hat and the little bear's fur.  I colored the skin tone, dress and added some shading all with Copics.  I stamped the candy cane stripe on the card base and finished by rounding the corners and tying on some red & white bakers twine secured with a button and bow!

Super easy card and I LOVE it!  Lil' Chick did too!  LOL!  Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  I hope you hens have a Merry Monday and I'll see ya back in the hen house real soon!  {{{hen hugs}}}
