Christmas Stocking

I am back! Today was my day to post on the Stampavie blog so I might was well share it here too in case some of you don't follow over there. (I have to plug the Stampavie blog for a second though, the DT has posted some incredible projects lately!!)

Stampavie released a stack of new images for the holidays and I chose a cute one by Tina Wenke for this card. It is called Rabbit with Christmas Stocking and the sentiment is also from a new Tina set, called Peace on Earth.

I tried my hand at using Promarkers on this image. They are alcohol based markers similar in concept to Copics but their tips are much different. It took me a bit to get the hang of using them but it was fun to experiment. I got some new die goodies at my LSS, the arch die is from Sizzix and the fence is from....???, I can't remember. I'll have to get back to you on that, but it was a new company to me.

My mother's visit is winding down, she will fly home on Thursday. We are trying to enjoy the couple of days we have left. Tonight she is cooking up potato pancakes with home made applesauce. Mmmmm, I can't wait!!

Tracy what did you use to cut your arch shape for the bunny? Very cute card! And potato pancakes and applesauce sounds wonderful! Ask your mom if she wants to spend some time at my house!
