Candy Christmas

Hi there πŸ™‚ I’m getting a nice little jump on my crafting and blogging this weekend!!! Trying to put a positive spin on all this :/ It was time to add another card to my Christmas collection, so I printed up this cutie from Faery Ink. It was a freebie a long time ago, and I’m not seeing it in the store now, but there are so many other droolworthy images, I might be in trouble!! I don’t know if it is supposed to be an actual Christmas image, but by using traditional red, green and gold colors, and some festive papers, it sure fits the bill!!

After coloring it with my Copics, and choosing my papers from the bits and pieces folder, I was having some trouble deciding on a layout. This sketch at Tuesday Throwdown came to the rescue!!! πŸ™‚

A stamped sentiment and some doodles to border the image, and I had a cute Christmas card done and ready to add to the (still small) pile πŸ™‚

I’d like to enter this in the following:

Pixie’s Snippets Playground – #374 ATG with Snippets

Crafty Hazelnut’s Patterned Paper – March ATG with Patterned Paper

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge – #482 ATG Christmas, with optional inspired by a Christmas song – Hard Candy Christmas by Dolly Parton

ABC Christmas Challenge – E,F,G I used the F for Freebie…the image, and the sentiment stamp was also a freebie in a magazine πŸ™‚
