Get Well Soon:
The Greeting Farm kindly let us all pick an image or clear set to use. I selected the Christmas stamp set called Let It Snow by The Greeting Farm. When I first saw the bear in the set, I thought he could be holding a hot mug of soup and altered to look like he's under the weather.
I inked the bear image and used a Q-tip to remove the ink from his mouth. I stamped on white cardstock and then used a Copic Multi-liner pen to draw in a sad face. I know when I'm ill, I tend to look rather pathetic, wrapped up in a blanket with a mug of something warm in hand.
I love using holiday images for non-holiday projects! Talk about getting more for your money! This bear is so cute too, isn't he?
I colored the image simply with Copic markers. I used a handheld Dymo label maker to create my sentiment.
My next project is a set of holiday gift tags.
I promise myself every year that I'm going to create my own gift tags for Christmas. And every year, I get down to the wire on holiday preparations and must jettison the idea. It's a good year when I can get my gifts wrapped in time. ;)
The plan this year is to create a few tags each month and tuck them away for my marathon wrapping session. Tell me I'm not the only person to leave the wrapping until the last possible moment? So far, I have two sets of tags ready to go, which is two sets more than I made last year.
I usually wrap my gifts in silver paper, so I chose a soft pool color and silver cord to coordinate. Super fast and super simple.
Your next stop on the hop is Dawn Lusk. Be sure to visit and leave a comment. Word on the street... The Greeting Farm will be giving away a $50 gift certificate on their blog. What a great prize!
