Santa Chick


Good Friday morning!  The weekend is almost here!  I'll be spending my weekend doing all things Christmas...baking, finish the shopping, wrapping....  How about you...what will you be doing?

I took some time out to make a card just for fun and relaxation...I picked a few challenges to participate in and used an old stand-by...a Stampendous Calendar Chick.  She's (or he) is colored with pencils and accented with glitter.  I used a PTI tag die and added twill and twine for embellishing.  I used Try Stampin' on Tuesday's sketch...it was a fun one...I will be using it again!


Image: Stampendous
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Pure Poppy, Doodlebug DP and Sugar Coated CS
Embellies: Martha Stewart Glitter in "Candy Apple", "Sour Apple", and "Sugar Cube", PTI Pure Poppy Twill and Twine
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, PTI "Tag Sale #3" Die, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Incy Wincy Designs: Christmas---Holly or Mistletoe
