New Puppies

Hello and happy Sunday. We are getting snow today, about a foot and a half on the ground and still snowing. We were due, not much accumulation so far. This is the blog dog in the yard this morning. I love how the snow sits on her fur, she looks so pretty in the snow and she likes it! Those northern breeds you know!


Today's card is for two challenges. The Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC34). (www.priscillastyles.blogspot.com) I loved working with this sketch. And for the Digital Pencil Too Challenge (www.mosdigitalchallenge.blogspot.com) the challenge was new beginnings. What sweeter beginning is there than a new puppy!
The image is a digital image by Mo Manning. I colored with Copics. I embossed ranger frost embossing powder on the white areas and then Holograph embossing powder for sparkle. The snowflakes are a die cut by Cuddlebug. The blue swirled panel was run through an embossing folder by Cuddlebug. The corners are dies by Sizzix. I added three Swarovski Crystals to each corner.
Hope your having a great Sunday. Until later............

I guess since we live in Western NY we gotta expect we will get the snow sometime, but we did luck out this year, not getting it sooner. BUT it would have been nice to have a bit for Christmas. I stopped in to BSS today and got a few things with a gift certificate I got for Christmas. The snow has kept people in, I was the only one in the store.

Wonderfull card! Your coƶouring is awsome and the way you took the sketch is very nice, too! The only thing, I would have made differently is the big snowflake diecut, I would have made it white for contrast.
