It's the first Monday of the month so it's Mojo time. It's one of my favorite challenges to play in. Even if I don't play I love to watch the slide show of the winners and favorites. There's so much talent out there, so many gifted crafters, and that's one of the ways I get to see their work.
I know my friends are scratching their heads and checking to see if they arrived at the right web page. Yes, I made a Christmas card and yeah it's a noseless, mouthless kid. This just goes to show you, you should never say never. I hate to send Christmas cards. I give them with gifts, and mail a few to my very special friends who have moved far away but I hate to mail them out to a "list" of people. This year I have moved away so I guess I will be sending cards to many friends who will be far away. So don't be surprised if you see more Christmas card posts.
As for the noseless, mouthless kid, I don't know why but I like this one. I know, I'm surprised too. He was part of a prize, so be prepared I also have an Easter image, and if you visit here regularly you may have noticed I used a Halloween image back in early fall. That one was a little kid in a pumpkin costume but it was a side view so the nose/mouth issue wasn't so obvious.
This fellow is "Ski Bunny Trevor", a Sugarplum from C,C, Designs. He's colored with copics. His hat and sweater are paper pieced with Imaginisce dp. The image was cut out with Curved Rectangle nestiblities (thanks for these nesties to good buddy Eileen). Before taking the image out of the die I sponged the edges with Ranger Pumice Stone. The pom poms of the hat are globs (technical terminology) of stickles, they'll probably take a week to dry. The snowflakes up in the left corner were left when the border was punched out of the white card stock. There are Taylor's Tiny Twinkles glued in the center of them but they don't show in the photo. This toggle button started out practically the same color as the ribbon, to make it stand out it was colored with a copic. That fun ribbon was in my stash and I think it was wrapped around a present from one of my crafty friends.
So here's the deets:
Stamp - C.C. Designs Sugarplum "Ski Bunny Trevor"
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black; Ranger Pumice Stone
Paper - Georgia Pacific cs for the image and white snowflake border; Imaginisce dp Candy Cane Lane for the card and Polar Expressions for piecing the sweater and hat (both papers are double sided)
Miscellaneous - charm from acharmingplace.com; ribbon from stash; My Favorite Things button; copics; stickles; EK Success "Snowflake" border punch'; Curved Rectangal nestibilities; Taylor's Tiny Twinkles
