Good Afternoon!
If your a bit squeamish?  Pass through quickly!  We came home this week to our Grandson's snake {on holiday with us} shedding it's skin, so I uploaded a photo for you to see. I sent a photo to our Grandson who replied 'Awesome' my friend on the other hand said 'Thanks for that lol, just having my lunch!'

This sweet image was taken from The House-Mouse Triple CD Collection.
Coloured with Copics...Paper from stash.. I've paper pieced the bow and the meeces tail..
Stamped the Poinsettia flowers on to acetate, embossed with WOW Sparkling Snow Power...fussy cut. Spellbinder/Marieanne dies used...Sentiment computer..Woodware Snowflake punch..

Challenges entering....

Holly Jolly Christmas ~ Snowflakes and Sparkle
House Mouse & Friends ~  Flower Power
ABC Christmas ~ Q is for Quantum {M is for Magical}


 Couldn't get it out of the tank in one piece, if you look closely in the middle of the photo you can see his eyes and mouth!

Thank you so much for calling...No more snake photo's  so I hope you call again!

Gorgeous card Chrissy, delightful image, beautiful colouring, fab papers and design! Love the delicate poinsettias and the trees!
Amazing snakeskin photo....not really that keen on snakes but they are fascinating to watch, amazing that they can shed their whole skin like that!
(Wonder if we'll next see it embellishing a card :D)

Pia S said...

Cute!! The card, not the snake photo. Love how those poinsettias turned out, and how you've added texture with the tree.
