Getting ready for winter

Olo!

Any big plans for this weekend? Nothing much exciting on my agenda I'm afraid. But that's ok, maybe something fun will come up when I least expect it. :)

So my card today is actually a result of a video request that I got a while ago that involved coloring up Wild Sprout DeeDee from TGF. And since I've always thought that her little boots would work great with a winter transformation this was the perfect time to color her up. The videos can be found here and here or over on the Color Me Copic blog if you're interested on seeing how she came together. I did a bit of easy altering by adding Wild Sprout Camille's coat over top DeeDee's original body. Boy, I've paired that coat up with several other Sprouts over the years... it's just so perfect for making a non-Christmas image work on a Christmas/winter card. And I put a bunch more of my Christmas scraps to use on this one. Which is fantastic considering I kinda couldn't resist a couple deals that I found for new Christmas papers online this Black Friday. ;)

Anywho, I suppose I should go get ready for the day. Have a wonderful weekend my friends!

Hi Amy! I love how she turned out and how you added the jacket. So versatile. She's so adorable and with the papers and embellishments she looks ready to dive in for some winter fun!
I'm gonna stay home this weekend and maybe get some cyber shopping in. I need to start Christmas cards and maybe some projects too. We shall see. Hope something fun pops up for ya, and even if it doesn't I'm sure you will find some fun at home. Have a wonderful Saturday!!
Hugs,

Hi Amy. Your DeeDee looks so hip with her little red boots and her green coat. I love the non traditional colors here. I have to go watch your video still, but I just have to tell how much I love her with these papers and just adorable she is. Hope you have a wonderful day. It is gray, but warm (48 degrees) so the kids are having a great time with my brother's 3 kids while their here today. Hugs, Lisa
