Warm Winter Wishes

     It's time for the November monthly challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies and this month, we're sponsored by Paper Shelter.  They generously supplied a set of images which includes black and white outline or pre-colored images, plus sentiments and backgrounds.  The set chosen is called "Holy Night" and what I like best is that it could be used for Christmas or any winter theme.

     Here's my own hand-colored version of the main image.

Colored with ProMarkers
Cut with Unbranded die
Background paper from Doodlebug (my favorite papers for winter/Christmas cards have snowflakes.  I like them because we never get snow where I live and that's my way of having a "white Christmas." )
Dark blue dp from DCWV
Snowflakes with glitter and gems

Art Impressions
As You Like It
Aud Sentiments
Cardz TV
Colour Crazy
Cute Card Thurs
Penny's Paper-Crafty
Southern Girls
Time Out

     I have a total of 5 posts today!  That's what happens when the first of the month falls on a Friday, the day I do my usual DT post for QKR Stampede and Brown Sugar (first Friday.)  On the 1st, I also have my DT posts for 2 Crafty Critter Crazies (you're reading it now) and SheepSki Designs.   This month, very late tonight, I have a post as a Guest Designer for Mo's Digital Pencil.

     I hope we're going to see you playing along with us this month.  Remember, all you need to enter 2 Crafty Critter Crazies is a "Critter" featured on your project.  Other than that, it's always Anything Goes.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

She is so stunning Connie! I love your take on how you've got her colored in and the reversed image too! You've captured her beautifully with your die cut frame my friend! P.S. time for DT hat: Thanks for sharing your creation with us at Cute Card Thursday Challenges! HUGS, *Vicki* (DT)....Am I still sitting in the bad corner? LOL

I like your choice of colors for her coat and hat. The lighter coloring on the deer brought out the wreath on the neck. Lovely winter card.

Karen @ Misplaced Mojo said...

So pretty!!! Lovely coloring and that frame die is a stunner! Sheer brilliance to reverse the image for something different too. Wish I had thought to do that! ☺
