Good afternoon. Today is the new Sugar Bowl challenge. This will be the last one until 12/30!!! AHHH!! I guess the other Sugar Nellie Christmas images I have will be used for other challenges! I guess I should spread the wealth!!!
This week in addition to the sketch was to use your favorite color. Normally Red and Green are not what I would consider my favorite colors but at XMAS they are IT!! I always just pick out red and green markers and paper. I love XMAS cards in red and green. I don't think twice unless it is a snowflake or snowman!
This is one of the free images I received when I won the Sugar Bowl challenge. It was one of those stamps I kept looking at and couldn't figure out what I would use it for. When I won the challenge this was the first stamp I thought of. I just think this is adorable! I didn't have a mistletoe stamp so I made my own. I wanted to put Merry Kissmas as the saying but the image is bigger than I thought and so now I don't have any space on the card.
This was a really fun sketch but I didn't have a regular circle that fit any of the images I have colored so I used the scalloped and picked the image based on what would look best with scalloped. I then thought it looked too "blank" and didn't just want to put dots so I found a $1 Michaels heart punch and just started punching. I think it looks really cute. I'm sure you will see a similar card Valentines Day.
Well I think that is it for today. I hope everyone is having a good Thursday...the weekend is almost here!!!
Thanks for visiting. I hope you like my card.
