Soft Pencil Tuesday!

Hello, and I am so glad that today is election day in the US! I am so tired of getting election phone call recordings! OK, now that i got that off my chest, onto some cuteness! Halloween is over, Fall is still in full swing, and Thanksgiving and Christmas are on their way! So, Soft Pencil Designs is releasing some new images, and today I am showing off one of their new Christmas images! This week, we are showing you "Little Dog and Christmas Tree". It is so cute! Nope, no Michu today, but never fear Michu fans, he will return on future Soft Pencil days. Little Dog needed some much needed attention, and doesn't he look cute under that tree? He looks like he is one of the presents.

I want to explain something to you, it's a bit of an apology. The watermark is located directly over the image on my card for a reason. I was doing some design work for Sugar Creek Hollow, and the owner received an email thanking her for her beautiful work, and the person actually told her that she was going to print out the card front multiple times, and adhere it to blank cards for quick Christmas cards. That is stealing folks! That is stealing from the image creator, and the card creator! So, to protect myself and the companies that I design for, I will from now on (unless the companies tell me not to), be placing my watermark directly over the image on my creations! A lot of people don't realize how much hard work goes into digi images, designing and blogging with them, etc from the company owners down to us DT members. So, I am deeply sorry, if this is bothersome to all of my blog followers but it is a necessity.
Moving on, please don't ask me where the designer paper came from, it has been in my stash for at least 2 years now, I think the brand is Provo Craft. The layout is simple though, so any Designer paper that color coordinates would look great! The ribbon is definitely unknown, sorry, and I just had to add some sticky gems to the Christmas Tree where all of the little circles and flowers were on the image. The sticky gems are mostly from Michael's Craft Store, they have a ton of them right now in loads of colors, some of them marked down! Run out and get some! LOL. The sentiment was typed on Microsoft Word and printed, and the flower is a Prima brand flower.
Now, rush right on over to the Soft Pencil blog and store (link on my sidebar), and check out all of the new stuff Elizabeth has loaded up on there, and grab some stuff that she has on sale! Go, right now! Soft Pencil Rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Until next time..........................Blessings, Lisa

So where is the paper from? Hee hee. I know they say to put a watermark where it can't be cute out for people to steal! This is a great card for the holiday!
