Christmas Archie - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello everyone... I did make something new today, but it's a DT creation that I can't show yet - I sat in the craft room and went a bit blank, so made something I 'needed' to make... possibly I'd hardly make anything if I didn't have DT stuff and orders, so it's a good thing I'm usually busy!

So here's yet another Christmas creation that I haven't shown yet... this one was Morgan's card.

It was supposed to look a bit like one of our cats, Boris, but I coloured him far too orange... don't think I've got the right copics for ginger fur yet.

Items Used
Digi stamp - Christmas Archie - DigiStamp Boutique
Colouring - copics (plus a bit of prisma pencil to try & tone down the orange... didn't work!)
Papers - MME Mistletoe Magic - MCH
Digi sentiment - Simply Christmas Greetings Male - DigiStamp Boutique
MS Snowflake punch
Card candy - Craftwork Cards
Glamour Dust in Crystal

Another reason I didn't get much done today - my Cameo arrived... woo hoo!  So I had to clear a space for it in the craft room... which took a while, as it's a TIP in there... more sorting out to do tomorrow, but at least my new machine has a home.  It's plugged in but that's about as far as I got with it today.

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)


  1. Love this image Lisa, what a cutie. Sounds like you all had a lovely Christmas.

    I've hardly blogged for ages because of my internet problems but fingers crossed I'm online successfully again with my new router and everything seems to be going well so far.
