That's Krafty Thursday Challenge

I'm so excited to get my blog site up and running. The Otter Spot is still under construction. I am waiting on several blog designers to get back to me, but I just couldn't resist participating in the That's Krafty Thursday challenge. Isn't Oscar adorable? He's a freebie from the Stamp Fairy. I love freebies!

For my card today, I used this little cutie Oscar and printed him on Bazzil CS and colored him with Copic markers. I paper pieced his scarf using October Afternoon Thrift Shop CS and his nose using Kraft CS. I sponged lightly using Memento Desert Sand around the edges.

I cut out and embossed him using my Circle Nestabilities. The patterned paper is Imaginisce Cottage Christmas and Basic Grey. It's layered using Baja Breeze, Bazzil white and Kraft CS. I used my sewing machine on the layers and added Wild Wasabi double stitched ribbon.

I finished it off with a snowflake cut using my Winter Woodland Cricut cartridge using Kraft CS.  I had to add sparkle. I used Diamond Stickles on the snowflake and Icicle Stickles on the snowball. The snowflake has a button laced with Linen Thread (SU).

I really enjoyed my first challenge. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
