Eleanor and Pickles

Guess what? I was wrong about the deadline again... but in a good way this time! I've already completed the challenge that was due by 6 PM Christmas Day! It was the one I did day before yesterday! Duh! I'll tell you what it is... it's after midnight... I have stayed up late all week long crafting... getting up early to get ready for the holiday week... I can't remember much of anything... which is OK because after the last deadline I missed... I wrote all the info down on a note pad. All I have to do is go have a look see and I know where I am at.

So I knew I needed to finish a card with red and green with glitter/sparkle... I know how to do sparkle! :) The card is for Challenge #42 Red and Green Plus Glitter/Sparkle at  Crafting for All Seasons Challenge Blog. I used a digi from Scrapbook Stamp Society named Eleanor and Pickles Christmas Caroling. Get this... it's a $1 digi! Yes! It is! They have about 123 $1 digis here. Go check it out for yourself if you think I am pulling your leg!You will find out that I am not! :)

I love the Eleanor and Pickles images... I am not sure why... kinda remind me of my Hershey and her dog, Fish. Eleanor is a cute girl... my Hershey, aka Nina, was a cute girl... she's a beautiful young lady now... just have a look see over there on the right side of my blog... :) ... but when she was young... she was cute... Pickles is an unusual name for a frog... Fish is an unusual name for a dog... Eleanor and Pickles are best friends and there are several digis of the two of them... I have just about all of these because I fell in love with them! :) Nina and Fish are more than best friends... she calls Fish her baby... my grandchild... she's had Fish since September 2009... she's a VERY well-behaved dog... and everywhere Hershey goes, Fish goes. They both clearly love each other. :) Enough of that...

So here's my card...

The background paper is from Bazzill. I used a Spellbinders' Christmas die for the poinsettia. The doily is from Michael's cake department... Yes! My friend Terry filled me in on that great deal!! I used Stampendous Snow Crystals on the "fur" on Eleanor's outfit. She strikes me as a glamorous kind of gal. If you look closely, there's glitter to make the snow glisten. :) I also added red glitter on two of the berries on the poinsettia. Of course, the ribbon, brad and card stock is from my stash. I used EK Success color pencils and Copic markers for the coloring. After I was done... and this may be the fatigue talking... but the poinsettia and ribbon... kinda looks like Pancho Villa to me... maybe it's because I'm Hispanic... no... I think cause it does! Look...

See... two red glittery eyes, one large shiny red nose and massive long red and green mustache... the long daggly one Pancho Villa wears in all the pics I've seen... on the other hand... could also pass for Yosemite Sam... or the TT Raider mascot. haha... No... I think it's maybe I'm just very tired and sleepy... :) Good night! I'll be back tomorrow, Sunday, to post a new card with my exciting news! Come back and read all about it! :)
