Are you ready for Yeti?

I did it!  I caved and made a holiday-ish card!  I typically try to wait because I can't do Christmas in July, but I couldn't resist this Yeti stamp from Lawn Fawn!  If you are a follower you know by now that I LOVE all things Bigfoot and Yeti, if not...welcome to my strange world.  So when I was able to borrow this stamp (no I don't own it yet but on my list for sure) I was thrilled.  So ready for Yeti or not, here he comes!

When I made this card I just had the idea that this guy had to be turquoise, not sure why, but it was a done deal.  I colored and blended him with various shades of my SU! markers (I am jeaolous of all those Copic owners out there, also on my list).  I added some flakes and trees and these fun snowball bling from Impress. He is mounted on some October Afternoon DP and Papertrey CS.  I love the way it came out- he is just so CUTE!  So..... I am submitting this to Lawnscaping's current call for using your fave products.

So for today's Question of the Day, I am torn between asking when you start working on holiday stuff and asking Amy T's wondering what your top 5 craft supplies are.  So, pick one or both if you like.  Here are my answers:  I typically start my Christmas stuff in November.  I always shoot for earlier but with Halloween and my daughter's birthday, it always get's pushed back.  My top 5 craft supplies- that is super hard of course but I'll try... in no particular order- Big Shot, wafer thin dies (super love my feathers die from MFT right now), enamel dots, clear stamps (I can't pick a fave set, impossible, but for today, I'll say this Yeti set!), currently loving my Prismacolor colored pencils.  Oh and #6- coffee! :)

Thanks for visiting friends!

You managed so beautifully without the copics! The color pencils are the must-haves, for sure! Love this happy holiday card, Katie! I am not sure when I will start making holiday cards, but when the creativity strikes--that's when :)

Super cute Yeti! I don't work on holiday stuff for cards I mail until November. But I like Christmas stamps and have already made some Christmas/winter holiday cards. I'm also making Halloween cards. :-)

Super cute yeti! I love how you colored it! What a fun and adorable card! Amazing job!


cm said... cute - make that 'ferociously cute' - your yeti is! Darling card! My Christmas cards last year (first year ever of making my own!) started in at 'feverish pitch' in November. Too late - but so much fun! Earlier start *planned* for this go-round! Five favs: Cuttlebug/Big Shot; patterned paper (LOVE - yes, I hoard certain ones); dies X 2 (love dies), and stamps (although we have issues at times!). Great question!

So fun! I love the Yeti too! He makes me smile so big, just like your card. Thanks so much for playing with us at Lawnscaping!

I can't get enough of the Yeti :)

I almost sprung for this set, because it was SO cute, but then decided to go with "Into the Woods" instead! But if you're a Bigfoot lover, of course you MUST have this set! Just ADORABLE! I am the same way with Christmas, I have to hold myself back-it's my season-haha! LOVE this card, the plaid background is super cute :)
