Warmest Greetings... *SFYTT*

....of the Season! Yes...it is another Christmas card! I am excited that my pile is growing slowly but surely! I was rumaging around in my retired stamp sets and came across my beloved "Winter is Calling" set from SU! I love this set and will never part with it. I have used it every year since I got it. The large panel on today's sketch made this image the perfect fit. I did cheat a bit, not on purpose, but I accidentally stamped the image too close to the bottom of the cardstock, colored it and then realized that I needed to have a panel go across the bottom, hence the popped focal image.
I colored the image with a combo of Copic and Prismacolor markers. I really need to buy a few more colors so that I can blend better, but I think it turned out okay. Of course I had to add a little liquid applique to the coat trim and hats. I really liked how the glitter stuck to the puffed applique for a frosty, vintage feel.










I punched the snowflakes using my Martha Stewart punch, added some adhesive pearls and popped them up with foam squares. I added a few other little details for interest and called it good. I am actually supposed to be at my Church's "Super Saturday" craft activity in 6 minutes, so I better dash!

Ah, Kelly! How I have missed your blog! Your new banner is to die for as usual! Can't stare at it long enough nor at this card long enough. I love what you have done with that SU set. It reminds me of other divinely delicious vintage cards you have made. Love it, love you, love everything you do!!!!

Kelly,

Your love of this set spilled over to me. I bought it off of ebay (I would have bought it from SU but it was offered before I got into stamping) I have had it for a couple of years. Like you, I will never part with it. Thank you for your inspiring creations.

PS Ariana is my daughter's name. I am Jennifer.
