Art by Mi Ran - Guest Designer

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  Can't believe it's the last weekend before Christmas!  I don't even want to think about what needs to be done before then, so I will just push on with my post for today!  I am here with my second Guest Designer post for the Art by Mi Ran Showcase blog.  I have so enjoyed my GD stint this month! We are still following along with the "snowflakes" theme and here is my card:
 

 My card base and mats are SU Cherry cobbler and the patterned papers are from the My Minds Eye Vintage Christmas 6x6 pad.  The cute image is Winter Coloring Page, Big-Eyed Girl from Art by Mi Ran.  I colored her with my Copics, then added a bit of glitter to the pom poms and the snowflakes on her scarf.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A couple of Memory Box Snowflake Corner die cuts and a large Cheery Lynn snowflake with a gem finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:


Thanks for stopping by!  I will be taking a little break over the next few days to get ready for Christmas and just enjoy a little down time.  I will be back with a few new creations next week!

Friday Coloring Challenge _ The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for this last weekend before Christmas!  It's going to be a busy one here, but I am hoping for a little down time after the weekend.  I am here now with my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is "color inspiration".  You don't have to match the colors exactly, but we want to be able to recognize the overall palette on your project.  You can use any coloring medium you'd like, but you must still have a hand-colored image somewhere on your project.

Here is the color inspiration photo, courtesy of Design Seeds:


Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Cherry Cobbler and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas 6x6 pad.  The sweet image is Happy Christmas Days from Ppinkydolls Art.  I have colored it with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I didn't add any extra embellishments because I needed one more flat Christmas card for mailing.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Friday Coloring Challenge and check out the wonderful creations from my teammies, Penny, Laine and Kathi.  We hope you will play along this week!  For the month of December, we are sponsored by Ppinkydolls Art.  The lucky winner will receive 3 digis of their choice from the Ppinkydolls Art Etsy shop
