Singing Loud for Christmas

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!


My friend Marcia is hosting CAS Mix Up this month and she chose....

I was excited to have a good excuse to use my NBUS snowman and sentiment set 
from Stamping Bella.

I've stamped this singing snowman and bird friend with Memento ink and
colored with Copic markers using different shades of gray and red.

I'd been wanting this sentiment for a long time and treated myself when
they had a great sale last summer.

I'll save this for my daughter who loves Christmas music and is known for
singing loud and cheerfully!

Challenges:
ABC Christmas - V for vocabulary (love this sentiment)
CAS Christmas - Gray and Red
Christmas Kickstart - For a Loved One
NBUS - Never Before Used Schtuff

    




Card Recipe
Stamps:  FaLaLaLaLa, Festive Gnome Sentiments (Stamping Bella)
Ink:   Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper:   Neenah, Grout Gray (MFT), Real Red
Other:  Copic Sketch Markers (C00, C0, C1, C3, C4, W00, W0, W1, R35, R29, R37, YR07), Elegant Stitching Frames (PB), Chunky White Frantage, Dazzling Details (SU)
