May Rudolph Days

Hi everyone,
Just a quick post to show the card I have entered into the May Rudolph Days challenge. I love this challenge as it motivates me to make Christmas cards. And I am so thrilled as to how this design on my card looks too.


I did a no line technique that I have been wanting to try for quite some time. This is a solid image and I started out by stamping the design in with Memento London Fog (which is a gray) and then with my Bic or Copics proceeded to color in the image. I also used a bit of white colored pencil on the hat of the snowman.

Penny Black Stamps Used:
Bundled Up
Yuletide Wishes (sentiment)

Die used:
Maker's Movement Stitched Rectangle Stacker (formerly Cheery Lynn Designs)

Well, we will soon be leaving this morning for our oldest grandson's graduation from high school. So hard to believe he is that old and that he will be attending college this coming Fall. Time goes by so fast.

Thanks for stopping by and for your wonderful comments. Have a great Sunday.

God bless,
Verna
