Hello and happy Thursday!     Wow!   The HOLIDAYS are here and there is a lot of hustle and bustle!    I need to make 100 crds for our county”s Foster Children… due by the 18th.  I guess you know why I will be doing for my days off this week!   I am going to start early and when Christmas is over… I am just going to keep making Christmas crds so I will have them done early!    LOL   Think it will work?    :D (Big Grin)   I also am making 100 reindeer candy canes and 4 batches of cookies and two cakes.    And then….   I have my own Christmas party at work.    LOL

Our challenge at The Outlawz: Twisted Thursday is up and running.    Our theme for this week is  “SNOWFLAKES”   Our wonderful sponsor is Stitchy Bear and her digital images are fabulous!

I added a creative background by marbleizing the background with my blue’s and then applying a cracked glass stencil to give the appearance of a cold winter day!   I imaging looking in the window through an icy cold window pane and seeing this little fella untangling all those Christmas lights!    I know I had a few to untangle this year!   LOL    
I am participating in the following amazing Challenges

  2. This image is just so darn cute and you've back them up beautifully with the cracked glass and marbleization. Love the snowflake paper also. I'm tired just reading you list of things to do. Please take care. Some of us out here worry about you, you know.

    1. Thank you so much Janet. I did not use the Ranger Crackle. I did the Copic Marbleization and then used a stencil called crackle and used a stencil brush to apply Vintage Photo ink . it was really fun!
