Now on to my projects for the month...  The first features the new Nutcracker  image colored with copics and layered up!

I stamped the image on Copic compatible paper and colored the image similar to some real nutcrackers on found on the internet.  I opted for a Kraft card base (5.5 x 4.25) and matted my DP with black card stock.  I added a variety of distressed papers, including a book print, music notes and traditional Christmas print.  I added a few die cuts accents from our sister company, Our Daily Bread Designs.

Here's the single image, Nutcracker...

And now on to the super fun Snow Angel Murphy,
 or as I loving call him "Saint Murphy..."

Here's the image you see...

I couldn't resist coloring Mr. Murphy like one of my beloved Saint Bernards!  I started with black and white card stock for my base and matting.  I then added a burlap and snowflake print DP.  The image (colored with Copics) takes center stage with just a bit of glitter glue around him for added effect.  This one certainly brings me love and joy!
