Storybook Christmas

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 :)

Ingredients :
Stamps : Storybook friends, lovely as a tree, teeny tiny sentiments
Card : pool party, white, dsp (ret.)
Ink : memento black, stazon, crumb cake, pool party
Other : copics, big shot, polka dot ef, ribbon (ret.), dazzling details



  1. What a great card Kathy, I love these lil storybook critters,and I love this fabulous scene ... an awesome job well done!

  2. This is super cute Kathy - those little characters are gorgeous. Love it.

    Had no idea about the Taskforce down your way - bit embarrassing that they've never caught any after all these years and all that money. We do have them up here in the ACT.
