Dachshund in the Snow


Here's a card for the Jingle Belles challenge which is a sketch this time. I used a Hero Arts Doxie stamp that I received for my birthday recently (thanks Lynn) which was colored with Copics and fussy cut and placed into the snowdrifts created with Lawn Fawn hillside dies. The snowflake is a Lawn Fawn stitched die, and the dsp is also by Lawn Fawn. I added a few red gemstones from Pizzazz Aplenty, along with a sentiment from Recollections. The final touch was to add some diamond stickles to the snow and snowflake. Click the photo to enlarge and you can see the sparkle.

                                      
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you're enjoying a great weekend so far!

You'll always grab my attention if I see the word dachshund, Carol! Your little darling is so festive and who wouldn't love a doxie bearing gifts like that?! Hugs, Darnell

I was giggling at what Darnell had to say. I have a real Doxie that bears gifts, but not always of the good kind! LMBO. This is so cute, Carol. How very thoughtful to receive that precious stamp! Great papers, dies and stamps used, Carol. Simply adorable!

This one is just delightful too. Love this little hotdog waddling through the stitched snowhills. Pretty dp combined with the white stitched hills and that sparkle of the white snowflake. You're on a roll, girl! TFS
