Hello friends! I'm at the very start of the Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop! It's all part of the wonderful Magnolia-Licious Yahoo Group's activities and I'm glad you stopped by! the link above will take you to the blog where you can get links to all the participants if you get lost.
Once again, I've kept it simple. That's mostly due to time, but I also like to make cards, particularly for Christmas which are easily mailed as this one will be. I started with the lovely Saint Lucia image from Diana's store. I knew I wanted to use some of the Magnolia paper too so I chose this soft blue snowflake pattern. There is also a green print with mistletoe branches that I thought I could incorporate, but it was not to be. Anyway, that's what drove me to use green with the blue. The ribbon is from Papertrey-aqua mist which becomes mint green when paired with green! Neat trick! The tiny sentiment is also from PTI and is punched with a Martha Stewart punch. the whole card has been sprayed with Clear Shimmer mist.
I used copics for coloring:
Eooo, E11, and R30 skin
Hair Y21, YR24, E25
Flame and glow Y23, Yr12, Y000
and blues B60 and B91
Green G0000, G21 and G29
Thanks for hopping by! Now your next stop on the hop is Glenda at In My Craft Room.
I KNOW she has something very special because she showed a peek of it earlier in July!
Have a super day!
