Greetings traveller. With the ground covered in a fresh blanket of white snow everyone’s minds have jumped ahead to the coming Christmas holiday. As such we have seen an influx of holiday quest requests coming through the Guild Hall. Today I completed one such quest for a young lass from the village who wanted a skinny armed snowman slain. I could see why she'd want the adorable snowman's image transferred onto a Christmas card, but I still felt a little bad felling the chap.
stamped the snowman image by Whipper Snapper Designs on watercolour
paper and coloured him using Distress Markers and the fabled Hydra Brush
I was finally able to procure after many quests. I earned +300 exp
points for colouring another project with Distress Markers which,
according to my stats sheet, allowed me to level up that skill! The
sentiment was stamped from the My Pink Stamper “Christmas Wishes“ set. I cut the
snowflake using the Art Philosophy cartridge and ran it and that
background strip through the Cuttlebug. I then used a sanding block to
distress the embossing part and make it “white” so it stands out better.
inside sentiment came from the My Pink Stamper “Biggie Christmas
Sentiments” set. That snowflake was cut out from the Art Philosophy
cartridge as well (I actually cut that one first for the front of the
card and decided it was too small, so used it for the inside – teehee).
I stamped the star do-dad from the Tim Holtz “Christmas Memories” set on the envelope to make it all matchy and stuff.
I will be entering this chilly card into the following challenges:

that quest done, it’s on to the next one. The ravens and owls have not
stopped bringing in the requests and the house gnomes are having trouble
gathering all the post from the rookery. It certainly IS the most wonderful
time of the year *sigh*.
