Stocking Critter

     Another challenge is starting today over at QKR Stampede and our theme is "Add Some Glitter."   Since we're well into the holiday season and most of us are working on Christmas or New Year cards, glittery sparkle is perfect for those projects.

     For this card, I used Digi 16304, "Stocking Mouse" and Digi 13802, "Ho Ho Ho."

     Even though the image is called "Stocking MOUSE," it looks more like a cat to me.  Or maybe that's just because I live with cats so I'm influenced to see cats everywhere, even when they might be mice.  :-D

     Whatever, that darling critter was colored in favorite Christmas colors with my ProMarkers and I added glitter to the holly leaves and berries.  I fussy cut the image and then used dimensional dots to layer him onto the die cuts (Spellbinders.)

     The "Christmas" sentiment was cut with a Memory Box die.  Earlier this week, I used the negative part of that die cut on another card.  Waste not, want not.
