Traditional Christmas at Delicous Doodles.

Good morning! It's Friday!!! Woot!!! Can't wait to leave work!! LOL  I haven't even gotten there yet!! I'm really happy it's the weekend. The kids are off of school all next week. I'm off Wednesday through Friday.. I can't believe it is Thanksgiving week never week! Wow!!  That means that Christmas is right around the corner!! I think Kevin and I are going to go for a bit of a ride this weekend! We are suppose to have a nice weekend and there won't be many of those left! At least we don't have 7 feet of snow LOL! Although.. I love snow! But like Vicky said.. We CANT HANDLE the snow LOL! She is SO RIGHT!!!  Have a great Friday everyone... and a great weekend!! 

Today is Challenge #115: Traditional Christmas at Delicious Doodles.








To me Traditional means going back to what Christmas is really about. So I went with the Mother Mary image which you can find at the Delicious Doodles Shop. The colors may be a bit non Traditional, but I think the meaning of Christmas is what is traditional. I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils. I did a small amount of decoupage on this image. I used a snowflake embossing folder for the white paper. I added some lace and ribbon at the top. The die around the image is Spellbinders. The sentiment I created and added some matching pearls around it.
