Using Scraps!

I am slowly working my way through a rather large shoe box that is full of digi paper scraps - some bits are quite large and some are tiny scraps, but all need to be used!

It's been a while since I entered a Pattie's Creation challenge and the current one is:

Animals or Insects

And you know me - as soon as I saw the word animal I knew I had a Christmas related Pattie's Creation image! I don't think this cute reindeer is available at the moment - have a look in the store here, but I've coloured it with Promarkers and added some glitter glue to the scarf and hat and glossy accents to his nose.

Both papers are from the new Christmas cds from Polkadoodles - Magical Winter and I've used a heart punch to create the scalloped edge.

I had just enough of the papers left over to make another but swopped the colours over. The stamps are from a 99p acrylic Studio G stamp set and the elastic 'ribbon' was on a gift box that my Mum got a while ago -waste not, want not! I've followed the Creative Corner sketch for inspiration.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss: Cute and Cuddly
  • Papers: Magical Winter cd from Polkadoodles
  • Image: Pattie's Creations, coloured with Promarkers and glitter glue
  • Sentiments: Studio G acrylic stamp set
  • Everything else: My stash
