ATCAS - Cuddly

Happy Saturday. How are you? 

Ready for a brand new challenge over at Addicted to CAS? Michelle is your hostess for this challenge and here is the code word she has chosen -

My first thought was a teddy bear. We all love snuggling up to a teddy bear, right? Or am I the only one, whoops.... lol

I don't have any teddy bear stamps or anything I could even remotely call cuddly so I had a quick look in my digital stamp folder on the trusty USB. A couple of weeks ago, I won a prize for my CAS Poinsettia which was a DT card for ATSM. The prize was digital stamps from Fred She Said and luck would have it that I had chosen one called Emma the Hugger. It even came with a matching sentiment. Perfect!

Here is my DT card -

Hmmm, hugging a snowman. Could it be considered cuddly? Not really, I suppose, but in the whole essence of Christmas I thought hugging a snowman was completely adorable. Plus Hugs = Cuddles. Good enough for me :)

I have coloured the image with my Spectrum Noir markers -

Emma -
Clothes - DR1, DR2, DR4, DR6, DR7
Scarf - TB3, TB4, TB5
Hair - TN3, TN4, TN6
Boots - IG5, IG6, IG8, IG10
Face - FS8, CR3, CR5

Snowman -
GG1, GG2
Hat - IG5, IG6, IG8, IG10
Scarf/Hat - LG3, LG5, JG1
Arm - TN4
Nose - OR2

I have also added some puffed snow to Emma. It's a snow marker that after you apply it, you heat it with your craft gun and it puffs up like magic. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

ABC Christmas Card Challenges - S for Something Festive
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Main Colour Red
