Season's Greetings

Hi again!  I'm back with a super quick second post today before I head out for the rest of the day to celebrate the holiday.  I made another card to add to my Christmas stash.  Can you tell I'm getting a little nervous by how quickly Christmas is coming at us?  I don't want to have a panic at the end!

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Riding Hood Red and the patterned papers are from the Little Yellow Bicycle Wonder & Wishes collection.  The cute image is Elfie Elizabeth from Art by Mi Ran.  I colored her with my Copics then added glitter to the trim on her dress and hat.  I added Red, Green and Gold Stickles to the gifts and the bells on her hairband and hat.  The sentiment is a dimensional foil sticker with gems.  I finished my card with a sparkly red poinsettia sticker. 

Here is a close-up of the colored image:
 

Thanks for stopping by again!  Enjoy your day and see you soon!

Oh, and I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Little Miss Muffet - Thursday Inspiration

Good morning!  Happy Thursday and happy Thanksgiving to all in the US who are celebrating.  I am popping in quickly to share this week's Little Miss Muffet DT card.  It's Inspiration Thursday, so throughout the day, the Little Misses will be sharing projects we have made with some of our favorite LMMS products.  It's all happening over in the Little Miss Muffet Stamps Facebook Group, so be sure to drop by there.

Here is my card:
 

I went CAS again this week!  I know you are probably amazed that I could go two weeks in a row without any patterned papers on my cards!  It was tough, but I always need a few flat Christmas cards that are easy to mail, so I took this opportunity to make another for my stash.  The cute image is Swings 'n Slides All The Trimmings by Pollycraft for Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I colored her with my Copics and added some Stickles to the ornament and glitter to the trim on her hat and dress.  The Christmas tree is a retired digi from Little Miss Muffet.   Sorry, I forgot to check before I used it in my scene. It is also colored with Copics and decorated with Stickles.  The sentiment is stamped and is from JustRite Stamps.  I doodled around the border and called it a day.

Here is a close-up of the colored images:
 

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Little Miss Muffet FB group throughout the day for wonderful inspiration from the rest of the Little Misses! You still have until Tuesday, December 2nd to enter our "clean and simple" challenge on the Little Miss Muffet blog.  Hope you will play along!

Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the weekend!  The weather has improved dramatically here and we are back into the 60s, at least during the day.  It's still cold at night, but that's OK.  We may even get some much-needed rain on Sunday, which is fine as long as it doesn't come with the severe thunderstorms that are predicted. Anyway, I've got a busy day so I will get on with my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is a color inspiration.  You don't have to match the colors exactly, but we want to be able to recognize the overall color palette on your project.  And don't forget, you can use any coloring medium you'd like as long as you have a hand-colored image.

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


And here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Lost Lagoon and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste "Charm" 6x6 pad.  The image is Aurora Daisy from The East Wind, our sponsor for November.  The DT was generously provided with a digi to use and this is the one I chose.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A few opaque gems is aqua and deep purple finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:
