Here's a hug

Here we are with a brand new year!!  Hard to believe it is here already.  So I'm jumping right in as I have the honor of another term on the Craftin Desert Divas digi stamp team!!  Woohoo!  I have just been having so much fun.

Today's project features Java Fox.

I know, foxes don't come in blue but hey, it's the crafting world.  If I think a fox will look cute in shades of blue then I go for it.  You gotta admit he's darling!

I used the fantastic Polar Pals paper pad (a real favorite) again to help me choose the colors for the fox.  Which just happens to be perfect for this month's Social Media Challenge at Craftin Desert Divas!  I colored the fox with several different colors of Copic markers.  I used a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to add sparkle to the sweater, puff ball on the hat and the skinny stripes on the hat.  I cut the two patterned papers at an angle and attached to the card base.  I cut the aqua strip to fit across the card and embossed the sentiment in silver.  Would you believe that the sentiment actually comes from the Autumn Wishes set?  I mounted that strip on to a piece of silver glitter cardstock.  As I always say, you can never have to much sparkle!

I splattered water mixed with Pearl Ex all over the card.  As the final touch I used foam tape on the fox in order to give him some extra dimension.

I hope you get inspired and consider playing along with the CDD challenge.  Don't forget to use #cddmonthly!

Hope you have a fabulous day!
