Little Shepherd

Good evening everyone! It is quiet around the house tonight. Bailey is spending the night with a friend and Michael is working. Kevin was working downstairs on his bike for a while and I have been happily crafting and getting a post ready for a blog hop tomorrow. That has been my night :) I hope you all are having a nice day/evening. It is going to be a cold one tonight here. And it is only 8 pm and I'm ready for bed LOL How sad is that! But getting up at 4 am kind of does that to you.  Okay... I'm here to post this card for today:

For this card I have used To Warm The Hearts. This was a Facebook Freebie from Mari Digi's. I just fell in love with it and knew I wanted to create a Christmas Card with it. I colored the image with Copic Markers. I did a bit of layering. The background was created with chalk. I also used a white gel pen to create snow on that background. The top of the image I used Gold UTEE. The papers are all scraps, so I have no idea who they are from. It is great to be using the scraps up though! I hope I can keep at it! I added some stitching around the rectangles at the bottom. I've added some lace and a strip of pearls. The sentiment is Paper Smooches and I used Gold Glitter Embossing Powder from WOW on it. I also added the red Candi. On the inside I used the same papers and a couple more red Candi to finish it off and that is it! :D

Copic Markers Used:
  • Eyes: E31, E35, E37
  • Hair: E21, E25, E29
  • Robe and Shoes: E50, E51, E53, E55
  • Sheep: E40, E41, E42; N3, N5, N7, N9
  • Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04; R20
  • Pants, Belt, Shoes: R37, R56, R59
  • Flowers: R22, R24, R29
  • Shirt and Shoes: B21, B23, B24, B26
  • Bush: G21, G24, G46, G29
