A Home for Robbie....

Can you tell I'm really liking this Basic Grey Figgy collection? I think it's SO pretty. This is Christmas card #4 for those of you keeping track!! Woo-hoo!!

I just received this little stamp in my last Whipper Snapper order. It's from their new Fall/Winter 2009 collection. I stamped the image in Momento Black Tuxedo and colored with my Lyra pencils. I added a little Glamour Dust to the snow on the birdhouse roof and to the base of the pole to give the snow some shimmer. I also used some red Liquid Pearls for the holly berries. I matted the image with some brown Bazzil CS that I punched with my Martha Stewart border punch. I used the same punch on the edge of the image as well. I think it added a nice look with them overlapping each other a bit. I printed the sentiment and punched it out with my SU Large Oval punch and then matted it with the brown Bazzil punched with the SU Scalloped Oval, with dimenstionals in between both layers. I stitched around the edges and added some polka dot ribbon to complete the look. It's a cute little country look, don't ya think? Leave a comment and let me know what you think of #4. Have a great day!
