More MFT!

I hope your holidays are all that you'd hoped for!  Mine are going wonderfully with the chance to spend time with family and friends, and, of course, my DH, Dave who also has a little extra time off this time of year.

I am completely besotted with these polar bears from My Favorite Things!  What could be cuter than a polar bear in a cozy sweater!  These are so fun to color!  For his sweater I used a technique I found online-don't remember where!  I colored the sweater with my copic markers, then take a loopy washcloth (aka-cheap!) and dip a little corner into copic blending solution, then dap it on the colored image.  The blender removes some of the color (where the loops touch) and gives it a fuzzy look.  Cool!!
The tree is from a penguin  set from Darcies' Heart and Home stamps, the set is 
Just Chillin'.  Very cute set as well!

Thanks for stopping by!  Remember the JUGS challenge is up until Thursday, Jan. 1 at 9 ET and has a gorgeous pink and grey photo for inspiration.
My card is also for the Christmas Card Challenge that I've linked to.
Have a great day!!
Cheryl
