Sing in the New Year


    If it's still dark and you're up watching and waiting for Santa Claus, GO TO BED!  He'll never show up while you're awake.  :-D  

      If it's late in the day on Christmas and you've celebrated with gifts and food, and the love of family and friends, welcome to the post and a new challenge from The Outlawz Twisted Thursday.  This week, we're celebrating with an "Anything Goes" theme and an "Anything Goes" twist, and my mind is moving toward the New Year.

     These adorable singing snowmen were drawn by Anne Fenton (Anne's Digital Art) and I thought they'd make a great choir for singing in the New Year.  I know, they could be singing Christmas carols but I thought they'd be great as a New Year choir, too.  :-D

     The image is colored with ProMarkers, then die cut into the same shape as the card.  The edges of the image are embossed, then it's matted with CS.  I added the gem swirls and the bow with the pearl for lots of bling and shine.


     Have a wonderful week and I'll see you when I get back after the holidays.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Pure delight! Such a fabulous take on the inspiration photo, with the charming scarf-and-toque sporting snowmen, the purple framing and the 'rhinestone' sparkles. Thank you for sharing this gem in the Inkspirational gallery!
