Week 6 for The Jingle Belles! Whoot! This week's challenge is Baby, It's Cold Outside, in which we are challenged to use "scarves, mittens, hats, ear muffs ... or some fuzzy warm felt (or perhaps all of the above if you are so inclined)."
Okay, I simply must tell you how very, very proud I am that this card came out exactly like I had it in my noggin. Scarves, mittens, hats, ear muffs, felt ... I thought I'd take one of my cute Kim Hughes Christmas Critters* and put ear muffs on him! But when I pulled out the largely un-mounted set and spied the moose, I knew what had to be done.
I stamped two moose, and whilst cutting them out, I ... almost decapitated one of them. Thinking back to my Stamp Camp with the Woodland Creatures card and the almost-decapitated deer, I added a scarf to hide the almost-wound. I also got out my Fun Flock and flocked up his antlers until they were good and fuzzy! Then, for extra credit bonus points, did you notice the paper has a row of mittens?!?!?
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND, this paper was still sitting at my feet, still not put away, and I used about 1/3 of it (baby steps). AND, the polka dotted piece is the flip side of the base DSP that was left post-trimming, so I am using remnants people, and not leaving any evidence behind! Double-whoot! AND, the Cherry Cobbler layers are cut from a piece of card stock I'd used as a mock-up for a box we made in November, so it is gone from the Healplet. Man, at this rate, I won't have ANY paper left by Spring.**
So there you have it - my entry for this week's challenge. Now if you'll exqueeze me, I have a VERY irreverent stamp that needs to meet some paper.
Thanks for stopping by!
* Not the name of the set, but I forget the name of the set, but it IS from Kim Hughes. And people, this set is old. Real old. It is not die-cut, so I had to find my rubber-cutting scissors.
** No paper left by Spring? HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHA, I crack myself up. We have SABLE, people, SABLE. (Look it up in the Secret Decoder Ring in my left side-bar.)
