Sweet Sunday Sparkle SSSC149

***please scroll down for my MFT teaser post*** 

 Happy New Year and welcome back for another year of Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenges. We're starting the year off with fabulous sketch 149, SSSC149.

This week's sketch is sponsored by Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps. There are so many sweet stamps to choose from but I used one of the adorable wintery images, Snowbunny Lucy. This is officially the first Christmas card I've made in 2012, but it's card #2 for Project Christmas 2012.  :-)
Pin It

I coloured her with copics and added some white liquid appliqué to the furry parts. I covered the liquid appliqué with glitter and let it dry for a couple of hours before heating it, which helps get smaller 'puffs', which are more realistic looking on small images. 

The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye Be Merry 6x6 pad and I love all the non traditional colours. A little stitching, a perfect white bow (thanks to my Bow Easy) and this card was done!

Be sure to link your creation on Karen's blog because Sparkle is giving away a prize of FREE STAMPS to the winner of this sketch!!! Now it's time to hop around to see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
Sweet Sunday Sketches will be every two weeks from now on, so the next one will be on January 15th. Thanks for stopping by!

Card #2 for 2012?! How is that possible?! This has got to stop, oh, the pressure! :) Seriously...she's very cute, love her little fluffy, sparkly coat and hand warmer! I always forget to wait before heating but I will try and remember as it does give a wonderful soft puff! :)
