November Blog Hop at The Character Cafe - Friday 11/5

It's blog hop time again! The Character Cafe has some great holiday images just released for you. Come see what the design team has done! Visit each blog and leave comments at each, and at the Character Cafe blog, for your chance to win two new release images AND a $5.00 gift certificate to The Character Cafe. I will also be giving away my image, Festive Lion, from the folks leaving comments on this blog!

My image, Festive Lion is below. However, if you didn't come here from Chelsea's blog, and you want to participate in the blog hop, you need to start at the beginning - go to The Character Cafe Store to start.

Here is the complete order and what everyone is working on:

Jessica - Harvest
Joyce - Christmas Tree Shopping
Deanette - Cardinal
Georgia - Remy & Fredrik
Fink - Harvest
Cleota - Stefan & Katherine
Lola - Christmas Tree Shopping
Chelsea - Cardinal
Nancy - Festive Lion
Back to the Character Cafe Blog!

OK - here he is: Festive Lion! I colored him with my Copics, and mounted him using my Spellbinders Nestabilities. I used Christmas papers from Hot Off the Press's Ultimate Christmas Creative Pack and added a gold Dazzle border and some punched out shapes. Of course I had to add some bling! So I added Stickles to the punched elements.

Once you leave your comment here, proceed on to The Character Cafe blog! You're almost done! :)

This is stunning Nancy! I've been thinking about what would make a good sentiment for this image and you nailed it! Your papers are gorgeous too!

Kendra said...

I just couldn't think of the perfect sentiment to go with this cutie, but I think you found it!!! Love the colouring, papers and of course, that sentiment (it's purrrrfect!)

Nancy said...

It's funny several of you mentioned coming up with a sentiment for this card - I probably spent as much time pondering over what in the world I could use for a sentiment as I did actually making the card! How in the world would I combine a lion and Christmas!? It came down to two things - King of the Jungle and King of Kings or something like All Creatures of our God and King.... and this one won out! :)

Nancy, your lion is so adorable! You did a great job with your coloring. I wasn't really sure how a lion would fit in with winter, (the only thing I could think of was the title of a movie: The Lion In Winter, or something like that - LOL) but you found a great way to tie it together.

Hugs, dj
