Christmas card with a Bichon

Okay, the title is about one greeting card but actually I have made eight Christmas cards with one Bichon Bolognese on each! 

I have, no... we have a 4 years old Bichon Bolognese, Rozi who has plenty of fans and admirers e.g. our postman, our lovely Italian neighbours (and not because the Bolognese is an Italian breed), Rozi's breeder, a Danish girl from my daughter's school etc....  So I knew that I might need many Christmas cards with Rozi.

Although Tim Holtz released a stamp set with dogs and I also have the dog stamp set from Katzelkraft neither of them have Bichon. Only Stephanie Barnard has a Bichon stamp, the Birthday 4 Cookie.

I wanted to put the stamped image into a frame, so I used a Sizzix Bigz Die by Tim Holtz, Ornate Frame 2 (661195).

I painted the frame gold with DecoArt Glorious Gold first but I found it too bright, too gold. This is why I tapped some Metallic Taupe liner from Marabu.

In this picture bellow you can see the difference.

The Santa's hat is from Stampers Anonymous Crazy Things, the text is from Crazy Talk.

All right, I won't bore you with all the eight versions, from these you can see that I made boyish and girlish Christmas cards too.

And now a little extra... photos with Rozi  (I don't often share family photos - but Christmas is approaching).

Rozi and Eszter in the car when we went to buy the Christmas tree this weekend.

And Rozi here with her Mona Lisa smile when she occupied our bed.

Happy Christmas preparations to all of you!!! Now it's just a few days!!!
