Anything Goes!

I love an Anything Goes challenge!  That is the current challenge at Meljen's Designs.  Although I do sometime struggle to come up with a layout.  I know.  I know.  There are a lot of fabulous sketches to borrow from out there, but I love to come up with my own ideas.  Although sometimes I do love to follow a sketch.

I used Candy Cane Sled Mouse because I simply ADORE Meljen's Designs mice.  I colored the image with Copics and wanted to try to add some texture to the snow, but was afraid.  So even though he has a little shadow, he still looks like he is floating.  Maybe someday I will be brave enough to add backgrounds to my images!!  The polka dot paper is actually glittered and covered with a clear coat, so it has a glossy, glittery shine to it.  Unfortunately, it is really difficult to capture that in a picture.   The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and came from a stash that I won from Enfys (pronounced En-vis) over on the Going Buggy blog.

If you don't fancy coloring your images yourself, the shop currently has a special on all precolored Christmas images.  You get 25% off and don't even have to use a coupon code.  Just shop, checkout, and BOOM you have ready to use images for that pile of Christmas cards you haven't made yet.  (Oh wait...that's me...)
