Nope, I really haven’t lost my mind ~ It’s Friday (TGIF, BTW!!) and time for a new challenge at Phindy’s Place. Our challenge today is Christmas is Spring! I’ve been so organized this year that all my Christmas papers and embellishments have long been safely stored away … until this week!
This adorable Christmas image has been designed by the one and only Phindy and is available as a digi image for your immediate download! How cool is that? It’s called Deck the Halls. You may know that I’m very partial to MICE, and this image seemed to be a perfect fit. I love the expression on the bird’s face – he seems to be quite surprised to see what the noise on the roof is! hehehe Surprise, surprise!
The paper is from the Basic Grey Wassail 6×6 paper pad (now on CLEARANCE at 7 Kids!) I think I need to order another pad since this is my all-time favorite Christmas paper! The image has been colored with Copics, cut out and attached with dimensionals to a Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Six die cut mat.
The snow-covered roof was painted on kraft paper with Smooch paint in Moonlight – my favorite technique for snow!
The sentiment is computer generated. I also added some Distress Stickles in fired brick to the strings of cranberries on the birdhouse & wreath and to the brads in each corner.
I hope you can stop over at the Phindy’s Place Challenge blog to take a peek at the AWESOME cardz from the VERY talented design team! I know you will not be disappointed.
Thanks for visiting today for some VERY early Christmas cheer! 😀
