Santa Baby

Ok, so as it turns out, it was a secret that these images (like the one I used yesterday) were going to be available online. Doh! In my defense, no one ever actually mentioned that tiny detail to me. So, I unknowingly blew the lid off the little secret yesterday when I mentioned it on my blog. Surprise! ;)

Well, now that everyone (or at least the 100 or so who read this blog) knows, I might as well keep going, right? Right! Here is the second image that Holly sent me. I think this girl intended to be on a beach sunning herself somewhere, but let's face it -- she came to Wisconsin. LOL! So, here she sits in a little pile of snow:

I colored the bikini with my copics, and then added liquid applique to the top of both pieces. Once it puffed up (after heating), I added a little glue and glitter. I actually drew the santa hat myself, and added the liquid applique on that as well. The sentiments are printed on the computer, but unfortunately I don't recall the name of that font. Sorry! The holly brad (isn't that CUTE?!) is by Making Memories, from their Fa La La line. I bought a pack of them (12 berry brads with 24 leaves) at Michael's. The three berries you see there are actually all one big brad.

And here's the inside of the card:
Hey, like I said, she's in Wisconsin now. She's going to need something a little warmer to wear if she's going to make it through the winter up here. ;o)

In case you missed the edit at the bottom of yesterday's post, these images are going to be available on www.squigglefly.com. Go ahead and bookmark the site, and I'll be sure to post here when it goes live so everyone remembers! It's the least I could do, having blown the cover and all. *wink*

Enjoy the day, and STAY WARM! Oh, and while you're at it, check out the HUGE blog candy available over at Heartful Stamping!

Well, way to go Sarah. ;)
Super cute card. She definitely needs a sweater. And some pants. And a snowsuit. Ok, I'll admit it. She needs to cover up because I'm so jealous I don't look like that! LOL!
