This is it.....

This is the slipper slope, I've started now (much to Mr Bah Humbug - aka hubby) yep this is my first Christmas card LOL!!

I've made this for the new Sketch Challenge at Outlawz sponsored by DigiStamps4Joy this month
This little guy is called Festive Snooze.  He's bee coloured with Copics, the edges distressed with Walnut Stain from Tim Holtz.  Around the top of the image I've scattered two different kinds of embossing enamel.  Underneath him he's got two kinds of glitter which are also embossing stuff.  I've cur out some black card with a Spellbinders die to frame him.

Here's our sketch for this week.

Apart from using some more black card I've used design papers from Maja Design and First Edition.  All these have been distressed.

The snowflakes are wood chip embellies from Scrapiniec.  the ribbon is red organza.  I likely got it from The Ribbon Girl.  One final tiny addition.  A tiny red button I've had in my stash forever :)

Hope you like my inspiration for this week and we see you at the challenge
