Rudolph the red nosed reindeer

This card is another one for my CHNC challenge 76 'feature a creature' and uses the sketch for Hanna and friends 147:

The sketch was just right for using up some offcuts from my Christmas box (papers originally from magazine freebies), so this is my first card of the week for Pixie's crafty snippets 24 and also for Hiding in my craftroom 49: super scraps Saturday.

The card blank is green stardream, the snowflakes were made with a Woodware punch with gold mirror card (doesn't show up here, unfortunately). The image is 'reindeer skate' by Bugaboo stamps, who are sponsoring my CHNC challenge 76. It was coloured with copics and the oval torn around a template and roughly edged with a copic.

This is also for:

Jingle belles: inspired by a song - Rudolph the red nosed reindeer
Willow sketchie: animal antics
Great impressions 4: die cuts or punches
Digital Tuesday 163: anything goes

Suzie's 365 photos day 161: frayed

When I first say Suzie's prompt for today I thought of me ... frayed around the edges - lol!

Then I remembered a skirt that has a frayed hem (well, strictly speaking I suppose it's fringed, but I think it will pass as 'frayed' for the prompt), so here is day 161:

Sweet strawberry kisses

This card is for the sketch for Tuesday morning sketches 149:

I downloaded the freebie strawberry digital image from Jane's doodles - this was prompted by the first challenge on a new blog Digi Haven, the idea being to use a digital image that is  a 'freebie forever'. I imported the image into Publisher and repeated it several times, tilting the direction of some of them, coloured in with promarkers - poppy and grass - and dotting with red here and there. I then printed the large strawberry with the computer generated text. The image was then matted on card coloured with the poppy promarker. Just the addition of the dotted ribbon and the 'with love' sentiment and the card was done. I used promarkers for I love promarkers challenge 120: for a little girl.
