For me, it's about 12:30 pm-ish on Christmas and as I post my card, I wonder what all my blogger buddies are doing at this time - on their time zone. Whatever it is, whether you're already "snug as a bug", enjoying time (and hopefully a great meal) with family and/or friends, or frantically trying to help Santa get those last minute "things" done......I pray many things for you, but most of all I pray that you are loved and I wish you double happiness in the upcoming year.
Blue Without You
This adorable Krista Smith image, from Saturated Canary is called Nikki, and I've colored her with my ProMarkers. Don't you just love these images? I totally adore them all. So much so, that I have a major hard time picking which one to buy next - although I do plan to snag each and every one of them!
Other mediums used:
Dies: Michaels (I'm starting to like this place) had a 50% off sale, and I was able to pick up a couple dies (Spellbinders Nestabilities, and Sizzix Sizzlits) that I used on this card, along with the Spellbinders Borderabilities that I won from Karen's blog (Feline Creative).
Papers: The white paper is from Colorbok, and the blue and gold is from K & C Company. The striped paper (I used the Sizzix die on) are from Follow Your Heart, called My Mind's Eye (another item from Karen's candy).
Flowers: I made the rose and flowers, using the left over white paper, and some distress ink. I had some pearls in my stash, so I used some needle nose pliers to cut them in half (that was fun :S), and placed them in the center of the flowers. The tiny blue roses were made out of some skinny ribbon, also from my stash.
Embellishment, Ribbon & Sentiment: The heart is from Dress It Up, Ribbon from my stash and made some simple leaves to go with the bottom right flowers, and the sentiment was made in Paint Shop Pro.
Thank you for taking the time out of your day and stopping by.
