Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Enter to win my blogaversary candy here until December 31st.

Good morning!  Happy Friday! Hope you've had wonderful holiday times and a great week, in general!  Like many others, I've been taking a little break from crafting and blogging, but I am still popping in now to share my DT card for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz site.  As usual, the theme for this last week of the month is "anything goes" with an optional Christmas twist.  I can imagine you are a little tired of Christmas cards right now, but there is no time like the present to get started on next year - lol!  The twist is optional, of course, but you must have coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) to enter.

Here is my final Christmas card make in 2013:

My card base and mats are SU Real Red and the patterned papers are from the Recollections Bright Christmas and Bo Bunny Mistletoe 6x6 pads.  The cute image is Santa Hat from Time For Tea Designs.  You can find her in Jo's Etsy shop here.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added white glitter to the trim on her coat and hat.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A satin bow and a few gems from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Markers Challenge and check out the fun creations from the rest of the DT!  We hope you will play along!  It's your last chance to get in on a chance at the fabulous prize offered by our wonderful sponsor, Time For Tea Designs!  Jo is offering three digis of the winner's choice to one lucky participant in this month's challenges!  You can't win if you don't play!
