Last week I got an invitation to join the Design Team for Stamping Dragon Designs!!
It's really exciting because I absolutely love their stamps! Their challenges start every Friday so look for my first DT post this coming Friday! You'll love the challenge!!!
CHRISTMAS IS LESS THAN 3 MONTHS AWAY!!!!
That occurred to me this morning along with the revelations that I have not started my Christmas list or my cards! Definitely time to get down to business.
So far I think I have a good handle on my gifts list, the hardest person to buy for is my little sister (I say little, but she turns 20 this year), because her birthday is 2 days after Christmas. Which means, I have to come up with 2 thoughtful, useful, and fun gifts. She's not the most skilled with finances so I always try to get her things that she needs that she probably wouldn't spend the money on herself. Difficult.
Anyway, here's the first of what I'm sure will be mounds of Christmas/Holiday cards.
I decided I wanted to approach this from a warm and fuzzy point of view. For starters, I LOVE this digi from The Paper Shelter. I styled the little cat after mine, Chessi. :)
I colored the image with Copics and ProMarkers. All the papers, patterned and solid, are Recollections. I sanded the edges on everything and then inked the outer edges of the card and of the sentiment. The ink is Dusty Concord Distress Ink. The faux stitching is a purple Gelly Roll pen. The sentiment is K Andrew Designs. The button is from my stash. And the ribbon is 3GJ.
