On the Second Day of Christmas...

 **If you are looking for today's TCP Sneak Peek, please scroll down to the next post**

If you saw my TCP post earlier you know that I am doing a 12 Days of Christmas series and I have the "second day of Christmas" as part of the  Sweet November Review Preview for the month of November going on over at the All That Scraps blog today. 

12 Days of Christmas: My step-granddaughters in North Carolina at age 8 and 10 are right on the cusp of no longer believing in Santa Claus. Twelve days of small packages arriving in the mail will {I hope} help keep Christmas a magical time for just a little longer. It's purely for fun and not really about the gifts.

Today's 12 days gift is Tic Tacs or Snowman Poop! Yeah, I know a little corny maybe but you have to remember that the recipients are fun loving little girls and I'm hoping for a giggle from them. To make room for the Tic Tac box inside I started out with a the normal A2 size and then scored it at the 4 inch and 4 1/2 inch mark for a folder big enough to contain the package inside. For both cards, I inked up Chill E Pinebough wiping the wreath portion of the image away before stamping and then drawing another twig arm for him. I colored with Copics, cut out and applied Flower Soft and Ranger Stickles for some sparkle and bling. I used yet another Sweet November Snowman on the inside Wish U Goodcheer stamping just the upper portion of the body directly onto the patterned paper background. Both cards were done this way with a few design changes for the fronts as well as different paper selections.

Products: Sweet November stamp, Authentique, Little Yellow Bicycle and Ki Memories dp, My Favorite Things Die-namics, The Cat's Pajamas and CTMH alpha stamps, Cuttlebug Embossing folder, May Arts ribbon, Flower Soft, Ranger Stickles, Kaisercraft jewels, Quickutz die, Copic markers

Copics: Snowman-G0000, BG0000, RV00, E31, E35, E39, N1, N5, N7; Toboggan,-E40, E41, (Right-R22, R24, R27), (Left-YG0000, YG61, YG63)

That's it for today. Whew! Going to be a busy week here at home and on the blog. As always, thank you for stopping by as I'm sure you are busy with holiday preparations too!
