It's Wally

 Good morning, it's time for our weekly challenge over at Crafty Catz, this time we are sponsored by 


Visit My Online Store

and the optional theme chosen by Janet is
I was given this wonderful image to use (thanks Becky) his name is Wally and he's a part of this fabulous set, Snow Time.
This is one of those cards that just happened, not at all what I had in mind when I started out. I printed wally onto white cardstock and used a tag die to cut him out. it was a bit  too long to fit on my card base so I chopped it shorter and cut the fish tail bit. I coloured Wally and the sky with Copics, leaving the stars white and added some bakers twine. I cut another tag in red, making it slightly shorter and layered them together, placing a die cut circle frame between them. I added die cut snowflakes and stars, the sentiment is stamped. 
I'm having a busy week as it was my beautiful daughter's birthday yesterday and it's her daughter, Ruby's birthday tomorrow, I'm finding it hard to believe that our little Rubes will be 14! She may be taller than me (by quite a bit!) but in my head she's still a little curly- headed moppet who loved to be cuddled (and still does!). 
Thank you for visiting today, hope you have a good weekend.
It sounds as if we're in for quite a storm so I hope you all stay safe and dry.

asyoulikeit- Santa or snowman
I like both but looking through my stamps and digis there are far more snowmen than santas, so it's a snowman for me!

He needs a name change for sure as he definitely is not a wally! The colours in this card really pop and I just love that cute little snowman Chris. Hope the girls both have great celebrations!

Susan said...

Love the use of the royal blue layer - it really adds a lot of vibrancy to the red and green. A great card! Thanks so much for joining us at Peace on Earth.

Beccy said...

Wonderful colours Chris, so vivid and strong and a great combination. The striped twine works well with the Christmas theme... makes me think of candy canes. Love the stars and snowflakes too.
Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter and granddaughter! I'm sure they received fabulous, handmade cards for their special days.
