Welcome back to another SOFTPENCIL TUESDAY!!  The DT was off last week and will be off next week as well, so I am SUPER happy to have today to share another one of Elizabeth's FABULOUS images with you!  Please remember to visit SOFTPENCIL ETSY SHOP NOW because Elizabeth is redesigning all her characters, so the current images and other accessories - printables, clip art, papers, etc. - will be available ONLY UNTIL JAN. 2.    There are a bunch of good SALES in the ESTY SHOP, so make sure you check those out as well. 

Please also visit SOFTPENCIL BLOG to check out all the DT samples this week.  SOFTPENCIL has such a FABULOUS DT and it is always so fun to go and see what they have created.  I know everyone is super busy around this time of year, but if you have a chance to visit all the DT's blogs, you won't be disappointed!  Links are in my sidebar.

This week the DT got to play with CHRISTMAS MICHU.  This image is so ADORABLE that I decided to make 2 projects.  The first is a snowflake ornament.  I colored Michu with Copics and Atyou Spicas, cut out with scissors and decorated with Stickles.  The snowflake is chipboard from an SU special set that was offered last year.  The paper is also from that set and is precut to match all the chipboard pieces.  I added a snowflake eyelet from my stash and used some silver SU cording that I bought last Christmas and have never used before.  Sentiment is from Amuse clear stamps, stamped in Versa Mark clear and heat embossed using Sparkles and Sprinkles EP, then cut with Nesties as is sentiment background paper (also SU).

I have entered this in the following challenges:
CRAZY CHALLENGE use at least 3 DP
CRAFTY EMMA - anything but Christmas card
EVERYBODY ART - self made present
FLOURISHES TIMELESS TUES. - food (candy cane) or drink
THERE SHE GOES - use old stash

For my second creation, I went with a card b/c I love making cards (obviously;)).  I followed a sketch from  THE SWEET STOP.     Again, I colored Michu with Copics, cut him out with a Nellie's die and added Stickles and Liquid Applique that I heat embossed.  I chose elasatic ribbon from Hobby Lobby, snowflake sticker from my stash, and pearls and bling from Prima.  Base CS is SU Kraft and DPs are SU (striped) and Echo Park.  Sentiment from Amuse clear stamps is stamped in Staz-on timber brown and cut with Nesties as is background DP.  I hope you like it.

This is for these challenges as well:
CREATIVE STAMP FRIENDS - traditional Christmas colors
STAMP WITH FUN - Christmas
THE PINK ELEPHANT - winter wonderland
CREATIVE CARD CREW - anything goes
DIGITAL TUESDAY - digi and sparkling Christmas LEXI's CREATIONS - glitter and pearls
CITY CRAFTER - use Kraft paper
