Heralding in Christmas


     Christmas is creeping up on us and my uber-talented DT sistah Franz has chosen "Not to early for Christmas" as the theme this week at Mo's Digital Pencil.  I decided to play with the so sweet "Herald Harry" for my card and went with some frosty tones.  I wish I was more skilled at coloring folds and creases, but alas, it is what it is.
     This card marks my first play with Fran-tage.  My sweet friend and team mate Amanda sent me some to try out and up til now I've been to chicken to try it out.  I have to admit it will take some practice.  That stuff goes everywhere!  LOL
    Here's Harry's glamour shot.


Copics Used:
skin--E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, R30
hair--E50, E51, E53, E55, E57
clothing and wings--C00, C0, C2, C4, C6, BG000, BG01, BG02

     You can find Harry in Mo's store along with tons of other wonderful Christmas images.  We'd love to have you come join in our fun.  You might even win a $5.00 gift voucher to Mo's store.
