I had an idea to use my Storybook Friends set to make a cute Christmas card. So when I saw Jen’s wonderful sketch at Freshly Made Sketches I thought I would give it a try.
I am also entering my card into the challenge at Addicted to CAS. It is their first ever challenge and the challenge word is SNOW.
It does look a bit cuter in real life because I have put dazzling details silver on the ground and through the tree branches for some sparkly snow, but you can’t see it sparkling much in the photo :(
I used pool party to make a cloudy sky background (I’m thinking I might write to SU everyday til the new catty begging them not to retire this colour!) And used copics to colour the cute animals.
This would actually be a very funny card to send to the Tasmanian Fox Task Force! Only Tasmanian’s are going to appreciate that though :)
(For anyone interested, we don’t have foxes in Tasmania. But after apparent sightings, a Taskforce was set up to find and eradicate them. (Which is a good thing because they would kill all our native marsupial animals). But it was started in 2002, costs millions of dollars a year and they have not captured even one fox in all that time!) Maybe they’re just too clever :)
