December Daily and Christmas is coming

Hello!  Happy Saturday to all of you.  Hope you have a fun weekend planned!  In my case going to a Christmas party with my hubby and that will take sometime away from crafting (oh no lol) but it should still be fun.

I have been doing my December daily as was mentioned in the following video where I showed the book that I altered for this purpose.

Since my b-day is in the month of December it was appropriate to decorate a page for this especially.  And I used a fabulous image from Oddball's newest release for this.  The image is Image 357. My daughter thought she looked sad... but I thought it really fit the fact that I'm not that excited about getting older lol


I colored the image with my copics and I put some gell roll pen on the hat to make it shiny.  The backing for the image is a red packaging from a dollarstore purchase!  Love being able to reuse some items this way.


I also wanted to share with you a Christmas card that I made that is totally out of the typical Christmas card norm.  But I LOVE that!  I used the great image 356 for it.  I found a sentiment from Dylusion that I thought was just PERFECT for it.
The paper that I used is from Hot cocoa by American Craft.  I added some K stickers found at the dollar store.  The image was colored with my copics as well as some pebbles chalk.  I really love that it's Christmas wiht the little lights on the fence and such and she's also wearing Christmas clothes but it's acknowledging that it was just Thanksgiving in the States :)

I'm entering the card in the following challenges:

  1. Left of center challenges - Fair maiden 
  2. Aloha friday challenges - Christmas
  3. Patties creations challenge - Christmas
  4. The stamping boutique challenge blog - Non traditional Christmas
  5. Christmas blog challenge - Night scene
That's it for me for today.  Hope you have a great Day!!!!

Hugs
