Phindy's Winter Cuties - Wooo-Hoooo, We're Hopping!!!

Seriously, you HAVE to see Phindy's Winter Cuties!!! They are so adorable I just know I'm gonna end up getting them ALL!!!

If you came here from Ann's blog - you're on right track. If not - boy, if you have ANY time to spare go back to the challenge blog and start hopping. It's worth it for eye candy only, nevermind the fact that you can WIN yourself some Winter Cuties!! What do you have to do to win? First, you need to visit the DT's blogs and leave a comment at each one. Also, each blog will have a word that you need to collect as you hop along. Put the words together to make a sentence and leave a comment, including your sentence, at the last stop (the challenge blog).


My word is CUTIES.


Now, enough chatting - betcha you are impatient to see the CUTIES:
I used Basic Grey Capella papers on that card, some lace and snowflake punches. And Stickles. Everywhere.

Other than that it's just letting the image do it's work. Happy sigh.
COPIC COLOURS:
skin E21/00/000/0000. R02/01/00
Boots E47/37/35/33/31/41
hat, gloves, tights YG95/93/91, G0000
Coat E74/44/71/70/41


I would like to enter this card to the following challenges:
ABC Challenge (2 weeks) - D is for Distressing
ABC Christmas (2 weeks) - (christmas cards) S is for Santa
Paper Pretties - pearls, rhinestones or glitter dots
Die Cut Dreams - using a digi, sweet little girls
Aly's Sunday Challenge (2 weeks) - sparkly and glittery
Sundays with Chrissy (monthly) - sparkly and shiny
Craft Your Days Away (2 weeks) - girly and glitter
Our Daily Bread Designs - sparkle
Cupcake Craft challenges - sketch


And my second card, this time I went for warm traditional hues.
Papers are Basic Grey Jovial (GORGEOUS pad), everything else is the bottomless pit that is my stash. I sponged the papers with white ink, just to soften the lines a bit.
COPIC COLOURS:
skin E11/21/00, R02.01/00
Teddy E47/37/35/33/31/41
hair E49/47/37/35/99/97
jumper, bows, shoes E18/09/07/04/02
Skrt YG99/97/95/93/91

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges:

Annika - two fabulous cards with perfect colouring. I just love the layouts you come up with too. Love your work, and that happy face which is always smiling!
You asked about the shaving brushes (ink dusters) on my WOYWW - I bought them at the Harrogate craft fair on Saturday - they are from www.inkylicious.co.uk. (They came in a pack of 6 but I shared with a friend)! They have a really good website and sell loads of super crafting goodies. Well worth a look I would say!!

Great job - thanks for sharing!

What can I say that everyone else hasn't? These are just more than Stunning or Beautiful, they're little works of art!! Your coloring just brings any image to life. I can't get over how his little coat looks like it would feel like wool and the tops of his boots all soft and fuzzy. How do you do that girl?!?!?! And the shadows with the little girl and the bear!!! Just amazing!! What I wouldn't give to sit down and watch you color!!!

Hugs,
Wendy
