Dontcha just love her... that sweet little face in profile. This image is called 'Santa's Little Helper'. She's not new so you've probably seen her on many other blogs/galleries, but this is a first for me. And how fun it was to color her up! She's a big image and this nestie was the only one even close to resembling an oval that she would fit into! : )
I'll be entering this gal in The Sugar Bowl challenge which is a sketch this time. Here it is...
It's a great sketch, but I sure struggled with it. Only because of the size of everything. I used a 5" square card, wishing I'd gone with 5.5". But I'm pretty pleased with the result so I'm not going to sweat the little stuff. ha! I haven't included a sentiment yet, but think I'm going to use it for a winter birthday, rather than for Christmas wayyyyyyy next year. : )
I glittered up her coat fringe (I always do that!) but also added some of that white fuzzy stuff for something a little different. OK... OK... I'll fess up. I mistakenly poured on the fuzzy stuff, was annoyed so added the glitter too. I actually like it! I also used my other new Sizzix embossing folder called 'starry nights 2' along with a MS edge punch.
