New challenge starting today over at Di's Digis Challenge blog... and it's All About The Bears. Di has so many fabulous bear images I thought I'd take the opportunity to make a start on my Christmas cards
The image is called Santa's Long List, it and sooo many more can be found on Di's new website Di's Digi Stamps. Moving Along With The Times wants to know what Film or Song inspired our creation; Santa Claus is Coming to Town was mine "he's making a list, he's checking it twice...." Ready Teddy Go has an Anything Goes challenge so I'm entering there, That Craft Place has animals, so in there too and The 2 Sisters Challenge is to have a hat in the image, which I have, so I'm in there as well.
Creatalicious Challenges have two challenges running - one on the 1st, one on the 15th; the "Challenge -the 1st" is a colour challenge; this is the palette this month, so I've entered there.
I've coloured the image with Copics, I try to get the furry look by stippling the lighter colour on instead of "stroking" - not sure if it looks like fur or like my marker was running out :P Christmas Stampin' All Year Long has "Santa's Coat" for its' challenge theme so I'm entering there and Colour Me Copic wants us to use red (the hardest of the Copics, methinks!) so I'm in there too.
The papers are Kaisercraft, December 25th pad, and Dear Santa pad (I think), the Kraft card is from my stash. Totally Papercrafts has Let's Get Krafty, which I have so I'm in there as well :)
I cut and embossed the image panel with Nestabiities Labels one, then cut around it in kraft for the mat. The sentiment is one of the Mini Messages from Craftworks Cards, the Card Candi is from there to. The Gold mesh ribbon is from my stash.
I followed the sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp this time around, for the inside too. I cut the jotting panel with Nestabilities Decorative Labels One.
Bearly Mine Challenges and Catch the Bug both have Anything Goes themes so I'm entering there and Stamping Sensations has Special Occasions other than Birthdays so I'm entering there too.
That's it for today's card, very much about the image on this one, I loved colouring it, it's so sweet! Do pop over to the challenge and see what my teamies have been up to, I hope you'll join in - we have a great prize from MarkerPop and even if you don't win, you can get a discount at the store for the duration of the challenge using the code MPDDDC041313
It's my hubby's birthday today - he's 59, I can't believe it, I've known him since he was 20; where did the time go :-o My mum and dad, my sister, my youngest son and my eldest son, daughter in law and the twins are coming over for dinner to help celebrate... it will be the first outing for the twins so we'll see how that goes (we've invited them for six o'clock but don't anticipate being ready for dinner until seven o'clock - I remember how much time it took to get ONE baby ready in those early days ;)
Until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna
