It’s SATURDAY!!! and E is for Embellishment at SOSS

For me is really is Saturday, I totally forgot my blog post yesterday. `Note to self….do the blog post as soon as you finish the card.
Since it is the second Saturday of the month it`s time for a new challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers it is E for Embellishment. Now you can have as many as you want, all the same or all different but it has to be at least 2 now that is an easy challenge.
I know it`s Easter, I haven`t lost my mind that far but I really wanted to use this adorable image from House Mouse Designs. I have been trying to make a couple of Christmas cards every month. The flourish stamp is from Hero Arts the poinsettia is a boss cutz die, I did cut an extra petal to make it look fuller.
Close up of the cute little rodent. I coloured it up with my prisma colour pencils and oms, added some white opal liquid pearls on the had and snow.
A closer look at the poinsettia, I used a brad in the center for one of my embellishments. I put 11 red rhinestones on the flourish to make and even dozen for the challenge.
As you can see, I still haven`t ``dug`` out the sentiment stamps for the inside of my Christmas cards. One day I will have a marathon.
Challenges I am entering this in:
House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge add a flourish and a flower (ends tonight)
Gruffies and Guests Any thing goes with an optional twist (lace)
Crafty Hazelnut`s Christmas Challenge Put a hat on your project
Crafty Hazelnut's christmas Extra challenge Anything goes for April

Thanks for looking today and have a fabulous Easter weekend.

I'm a blog-from-the-seat-of-my-pants gal myself ;) I generally blog a couple of hours before the challenge goes live. If I do it too far ahead I manage to screw it up, every.durn.time.
I love this little mouse - SO cute! - and that flourish & gorgeous poinsettia are the perfect additions!
