More "sweets" from Sugar Nellie!

It's the weekend...YAY!!! Didja stop by Sugar Nellie yesterday for the fun Carnival of Color Blog Hop celebrating the new Sugar Nellie stamps and images? Amazing creations, huh?! If you didn't get a chance, it's not too late to pop on over and see what the Sugar Nellie and Sugar Bowl DTs created to help showcase the new stamps...which, by the way, are now available over at Funky Kits! I have another fun new image from Sugar Nellie...and yes, it's another winter card...that means I have made not one but TWO of my Winter Holiday Cards for 2011! I'm so impressed with myself! LOL!! Take a look at this fluffy puppy propped on the windowsill next to a holiday stocking stuffed with gifts!! The image is called "Special Delivery." How stinkin' cute is he? Brrr...check out the snow! (It's still in the 90's here in Virginia...LOL!)

I have to admit, I don't generally color animals...and I'm not even sure why! But...this image was pure joy to color!! I used Copics and some of my Prismacolor pencils for added are the Copcs I used:

Puppy...and window frame: E53, 51, 50, & 23; cheeks R20 & 00
Hat, scarf, & red stripe on the present: R08, 05, 02, 01
Stocking: YG07, 05, 03, 00, G21 & 20
Blue present: B23, 21, 000
Snow/sky" BG000

Here's a close-up of this sweet little image...

Once again, I used Liquid Applique for the fur trim. This is the coolest's puffs up so easily when you use a heat tool and blow hot air on it...amazing...why, I'd even say it's practically magic! The cardstock is called Poppy Parade and is from Stampin' Up...and the DPs are from Kaiser Craft's "Be Merry Collection." Kind of unconventional reds and greens...but I love 'em!!

I added some jute string...and attached a cute little stocking charm from the Charm Barn...oh...and I used  "Labels Two" Nestabilities Dies. Here's a peek at the inside...

And a close-up of the sentiment...which is from an old, old, OLD (my very first rubber stamps, I think) Stampin' Up stamp set...

And finally...the "artsy" shot...Oh, you KNOW you've been waiting for it! hehehe!, if you haven't done so already, you'll want your fingers to RUN not walk over to Funky Kits to check out the fun new images...oh my gosh, you are soooooooo gonna love 'em!! Thanks for stopping by...and have a great rest of the weekend!! Sending sweet hugs...until next time....
