using image from "Christmas in the Country"
This is a fav - I masked the church and sponged with Memento's Paris Dusk (image stamped with Memento black)...colored with Copics T2, T3, Y08....added liquid applique for snow and stickles glitter. Matted using Spellbinders onto designer paper and white embossed sentiment, added pearls with Liquid Pearls and stash ribbon....card base is dark blue.

next, using image from "Snowball?"

cardbase is MFP's Aged Cranberry matted with Websters Pages (dont know name of the set its from....lost my cover sheet) stamped image onto white cardstock and colored with Copics, sponged designer paper where image was going to be placed with Memento's Bamboo and then paper pieced the penquin...stash ribbon and snowflake...center of flake is done with White Pearl Pen.
he looks kinda vintage...I think (-:

enjoy the rest of the hop,
hugs,
