Meet Trevor

This is my DT creation for this weeks challenge at Die Cut Dreams. Susie has donated a fabulous prize of 2 blank chipboard mini books. All you have to do is follow Vikki's sketch and include something snowy.

I used one of CC Designs Trevor stamps from their winter kit. Isn't he cute? I drew the bells on thinking I was in time to enter Winter Wonderlands 'Jingle Bells' challenge but of course I wasn't!

This is my first easel card - they are so much easier to make than I thought they would be. I've stretch the sketch over the front and the inside too.

I'm entering this for these challenges:

Trevor is shaded with ProMarkers and Copics and practically drowned in Glamour Dust poor chap. The papers, paper ribbon and sentiment are from Lili of the Valley. The snowflake and pine branches are Martha Stewart punches, I used adhesive aluminium foil for the branches.

We didn't make our walk yesterday because as soon as we were ready it started raining and we've all come down with a flippin' cold again! But I'm happy 'cos I've got my replacement Cuttlebug...
