Hanna Christmas

Hello Everyone!! I actually made this Christmas card last week but forgot to post it. Now that I look at the card, I should have placed Hanna closer to the tree. Boy, Hanna is a tall chick! LOL! She's taller than the tree! She's so skinny too! Companies should make more stamps reflecting how most women look! Shorter and maybe a size 8 or 12. LOL! I wonder if people would buy them? Even stamped images seem to focus on tall, skinny women.

Well, no matter. . .Hanna is very pretty and looks nice on my card. I know. . .the colors of my card are not really Christmas colors but because I made Hanna hair blond, I had to add some yellow to my card. I actually like it. It's different. I purchased this set from Jen's online store "Little C's Stamps n' Things". She has a huge sale going on right now. . .be sure to stop by and check it out.


I used Liquid Applique to create the puffy snow. It's so fun to use LA. You know lately, I've been feeling like a couch slug. . . .lounging around watching TV. Terrible. Typically I hate being a couch potato but lately, I don't want to do anything. Arggghh!

I hope I snap out of this phase. . .like pronto!! KWIM? I'll give myself the weekend to get my self together. Do you have days when you just don't want to do anything? I mean absolutely NOTHING?





Anyway, back to my card. . .I colored the tree with my Copic Markers and smudged a bit of white opaque pen to the tree to create the subtle highlights.

Okay. . .I'm going to make it a goal to create something today. Hope you are all having a fabulous Friday!!

Maria this is so cute and inspiring. I still don't have any Christmas images but hopefully that will change soon. Thanks for always having something so inspiring on your blog!

Your card is so pretty Maria! The colors are very pretty and I love the way you embellished your card!

Rita said...

Sooooo pretty, I luv it Maria! Luv how you made the tree 3D! I have those days too & it rakes a bit of effort to snap out of it! Sometimes we do need to have a day of doing nothing, I think anyway but more than that is harder to get out of the rut.

Rita said...

Oh I forgot to ask you, what is the size of this card? I want to case this card if you don't mind & it seems to fit this image perfectly without seeming like its too crowded! I have this stamp set, I got it last year & I luv it!
