No Bah, Humbug Here!

     My dear blogging friend, Teresa of Tickell Expressions, drew this sweet little skunk (yes, skunks can be sweet!) and the first time I saw it, I just knew it belonged on a Christmas card. The sentiment popped into my head instantly.  Today was the first time I had the opportunity to get that envisioned card made and here it is.


     The image is colored with ProMarkers and a white gel pen, then die cut with a rectangle die from Spellbinders.  The mat was cut from dp with a larger die.  The bow is also a die cut (die from Cottage Cuts) and I cut three layers of it (white, navy blue, and patterned) for some dimension.  Both papers are from DCWV.  The Christmas tree charm was in my stash.

Great charm you added to this card. He does seem to have a little charm himself doesn't he?

SO cute and he looks just like a little skunk too! - I know this because I almost stepped on one the other day going out the back door. Not sure who was frightened more though! LOL!
Love the ribbon/box for this and of course the little charm too. Fabulous card Connie!
