Forest Critter and give away

Hi Hermine here, my turn to post today and I made a card with this awesome little forest critter. But not only that I made a little pocket as well to pu in my give-away. Read about this further on in this post.

But first the how to on this card:
step 1: Stamp the forest critter 19820 on your piece of paper and mask it. Then stamp the winter wood scene 19793.
step 2: take a outer circle mask and put on your work. Start colouring the images and its surroundings with colouring pencils.
step 3: remove mask and draw some faux stitches around the circle. 
step 4: mat on black paper and glue onto a double rectangle card.


And here is my give-away.  As you can see on the photo its not an ATC but a little pocket. I had this stamp double so I want to give it away to one of you loveluy people. The only thing you have to do it to leave a comment at this post. Its runs untill march 20th, after that I put all the names in a hat and draw the winner/ The winner will be announced in my second post for march and that is march 23.

Here a close-up of the little pocket. Stamped the same way as the card, but using the inner mask to mask off the center and sponged around to create the background.

Hope you like it and good luck. One of you will be the winner of this awesome stamp designed by Mary Vogel Lozinak and is called Whimsical collage 19166.

Ha, ha, when I thought of leaving a comment ( before reading the give away part) to your lovely critter, I thought of whimsical, magical and lovely.
I love this little creature and everytime you made something with her I think:" Aaahhww, how sweet! ❤️❤️" .
It's not different this time. Great work!
And of course I'll take a chance on winning this beautiful and whimsical (again) stamp you're showing here with the little pocket.
Thanks for the opportunity
