Come and have a look:
I wouldn't have been able to make this in minutes if I hadn't already had a mask made for my polar bear, so that's one tip for quick cards: when you use a mask, don't throw it away - keep it with your stamps! All the animals in my Zoo Review set have post-it note masks stuck on their wooden blocks and stored in their case.
I stamped my bear in Pacific Point and covered him with a mask and then came all the fun! I took the blue ink pads and swiped them over and around the mask. I went very easy on the Midnight Muse, saving that mostly for the Music Notes wheel which I wheeled randomly over and around the bear too. When I peeled the mask away, my polar bear was romping about in a musical ice background! I cut him out with my new 2 1/2" circle punch and sponged the edges with Midnight Muse ink.
Do let me know if you try this - I'd love to see!

It's Tuppence, our cat, peering over the cushions to see what I was doing. It's obvious that she's less than impressed isn't it - did you ever see a more contemptuous face?!
It's nearly the end of the week again - and Christmas looms ever closer! See you tomorrow.
