Happy Power Poppy Friday~December 15th

Hello there and a very happy Friday to you!  I hope you have been doing well.  It has been hectic around here with all of the hustle and bustle of getting ready for the holidays...but I am betting it is that way for you too, right?  :)  Well in the midst of our craziness around here, I got to spend a little time in my craft room getting this card ready for today's post.  It features an image from one of Power Poppy's newest holiday stamps, Under Glass: Christmas Traditions and a sentiment with a few snowflake images from one of last season's holiday sets, Action Santa.  Marcella's darling Santa feeding a reindeer image stole my heart at first sight!  

Now I ask you, is that not the most precious little Santa?  AND the reindeer too!  I started by stamping my image and sentiment on a trimmed card stock panel.  Next, I colored my image up with Copics, then stamped some snowflakes around, and finally added some distress ink to the edges and shimmer with my Wink of Stella clear brush pen.  I couldn't resist the urge to spritz a few inks around with a spritzing tool and round the bottom corners to add a little more interest.

After all of the coloring details were done, I stitched some patterned papers that I trimmed and pinked with shears to the top and added a bright red ribbon and a bit of string with buttons knotted on the tails.  Not a single die was used for this card!  :) Lastly, I adhered the finished panel to a card base.  This card measures 3 3/8" x 4 7/8".

He's feeding the reindeer apples!  How precious is that?!  I really am constantly amazed at what Marcella creates....where on earth does she come up with all of these sweet details?  I sure am glad she does though!  :)

So that is all for my card today but some of my Bloomie sisters have whipped up a few little show stoppers for you to make sure you check out all of their crafty goodness and leave a little blog love while you are there.  Oh, and hey...if you didn't catch all of the Twelve Days of Christmas festivities on the Power Popy blog, you really should do that!  It is chock full of incredible Christmas crafty inspiration over twelve days and you can play along! Did I mention there is a prize?  :) Make sure you check out all of the details here.  Marcella has created a spot on the blog where you can see all twelve projects here.  I am so happy that you could stop by today and I hope that I'll be seeing you around here again real soon....until then, take care!  :)
