Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop by Newton's Nook Designs


Welcome to another stop on the Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop by Newton's Nook Designs!  I hope you have been enjoying the visual delights my fellow Teamies & special guests have created for you on this fun hop indented to inspire you for your holiday projects.  I decided to create a card using a set I begged Jennifer to illustrate because it had a SNOW PUPPY in it so I could customize it for my family (as you can for yours!) -- Flaky Family:


I depicted Ty, my hubby, and myself using the cute snow family images in this card:


I did a little bit of masking to get the family to huddle together like this and added some loose, sparkly, iridescent glittery touches to them with a glue pen.  I paired the cute snowman family with some whimsical smiling snowmen paper from Doodlebug's 'Northpole' collection (am I the only one who has trouble cutting into Doodlebug paper collections?  They are ALL SO CUTE and I just wanna hoard them!  LOL!) and tied the pennant with some rich green baker's twine by Martha Stewart, which I purchased years and years ago during an after-Christmas sale before using twine on cards was all the rage.  Fellow Teamie Tessa has used a similar layout on a few occasions with this BIG pennant die, I wanted to give it a try myself, I really like it!  Not too fussy, but not too simple either - what do you think?
