A Christmas Twist

Hello there and Happy Friday,

We are expecting a small snow storm here this afternoon into the evening. 1-3 inches. Humm I was hoping for that at Christmas. What no white Christmas. Oh well. Since we are having snow look I have a Christmas card. What I know you think I have lost it. Which yes some may already think that. LOL

It is for our challenge over at The Outlawz CPC this week. We have a twist of Christmas. This was an idea to help everyone get a little jump start on your Christmas card making for 2013. We will have this the last Friday of the month so be ready.

My image today is one by Kenny K. She is a little up how can we say it "curvy" Yea that's a good word. This is a new stamp that I just got and have been wanting to try it out. I have also stamped white snowflakes on the "inside" of the card using white stazon and snowflakes from Stampin Up. 

I have colored her with my copics. The glitter is glamour dust that is on her fur trims. Please excuse the photos I had a hard time getting a good shot of this card for some reason. I must have taken a good 50 shots.

The card is a free cut file from She has some of the best files she does. She also has digital stamps as well. The Merry and Bright is a cut file from Silhouette store that I have embossed with Stampin Up's heat and stick powder and then added glitter and heat set. I really like this powder because it works unlike the other 3 jars of the same type of stuff but different brands that I ended up tossing. 

My paper is from Basic Grey Nordic Holiday paper pad. I have also used Kraft cardstock to layer it and add to the inside of the card. 
The snow flakes are cut from a cuttlebug die and covered with glamour dust. 

I hope you will stop over and join in on the fun.

Thanks for stopping by.

I am entering this into the following challenges.

Fabulous card Jo. Love this cut and thanks for sharing. Still no Cameo, but she wasn't going to mail it until this Tues. Love how you have colored this darling Kenny K image. Beautiful!

Curvy, yes, but in a good way. (I am curvy in a not-so-good way. Too bad I am not made out of clay--then I could mold my shape to match hers!) Love your coloring and accenting, Jo--she is just beautiful. As is your card--love the easel design & shape. Love that sentiment, too--way cool! Just a fabulous card! :^)
Hugs, Penny
