Christmas Thurston

Hello Friends, welcome back to day 8! wow we are so close to Christmas its scary! hope your ready!
if your just joining us on our merry lil hop be sure to start at the beginning so you don't miss here for all the details

for my card today I used The Thurston Digi from Smeared Ink

the sketch came from the Very Sketchy Challenge from the Smeared and Smudged forum, I printed the hat...Kenny K image...and then I took some sparkly pipe cleaner and made it into a wreath (saw something like this on one of Tim Holtz tags) and dabbed some red puffy paint on it, I put some snow writer stuff on his hat (thanks Tori) my Thurston image is colored an then I added some UTEE he is super shiny I love him! I don't think Thurston looks very happy that I stuck a hat and wreath on him but hey...its Christmas so he'll just have to deal with it! :)

Great job on the sketch! Fab job on dressing Thurston up for the holidays, really like the pipe-cleaner wreath idea :)

I think he looks very festive if perhaps a little embarrassed by how festive he looks.
