Holiday Chaos - Day 4

     It's time for the next Holiday Chaos theme at Catch the Bug and it's Ugly Sweater day with three possible recipes for making your card.  I went really literal on the "Ugly Sweater" theme as well as using one of the recipes.  I used Glitter/ 3 buttons/ & ribbon.  The mouse image is from Bugaboo Stamps.


I started with the sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.

     I colored the image with ProMarkers, but paper pieced the ugly sweater and her hair bow.  I added tiny dots of glitter to the sweater.  The image was cut with a QuicKutz die, as was the rectangle of dp.  I cut the sentiment with a die from Die-Versions.  The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and the three, tiny buttons were in my stash.

      Only one post for today (that must be a relief for those of you who visit regularly!) but I'll have another double post day tomorrow.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
