Christmas Basket.

Good morning and a very happy Saturday!! Yesterday was a good day. I worked, worked, worked and then I left at lunchtime and headed to the high school. When I got there I went into the counselors office and told them I wanted my son tested for Autism and learning disabilities. They took my name and number... It's going to be something I have to push I think. And if that is what it takes, then they will all get to know me well. Then I came home and watched some MotoGP practices with the hubby and went to bed LOL  Michael had work, so he called at about 1:15 am. I got up and went and got him and then when my head hit the pillow it didn't take too long to fall back asleep. Well.. at least after I quit thinking about the card I was working on .. hahaha!!  Ridiculous!! :D  Have a great weekend everyone!!

No more cards to post!!  I'm hoping I finish the one I'm working on this morning. I've almost had 1 card a day all month! Two days to go. I have to get busy today hahaha! That will NEVER happen again!!

Today I have a 4x4 Christmas Card:

This image is Seasonal Baskets from DeeDee's Digis. I colored this image with Copic Markers. I did a small amount of layering. The rolled flowers were cut using the Silhouette Cameo. And this is a small 4 x 4 card. I stamped on the inside with a Paper Smooches stamp. I also used some silver and gold Wink Of Stella on ribbons and the star.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Basket: E53, E31, W3; E53, E57, E59
  • Gingerbread Man: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, 0
  • Ribbon, Cloth, Heart, Candy Cane and Cheeks: R22, R24, R29, R46
  • Tree: G20, G21, G24, G28
  • Gift: B00, B02, B04
  • Candle: E41, E42, 0
  • Candle Ribbon and Tree Star: Silver and Gold Wink of Stella
  • Tree Trunk: E33, E35, E37

This is super cute Susan and your colouring is smokin' good. Love those little rolled flowers, they are really cute. I also like the interesting way you cut/placed your background paper... the red above, green on the bottom and the rest shows the stripes. Looks good.

Wonderful Christmas card. I love the flowers you made! We are blessed that you joined our Challenge last week at Word Art Wednesday. Make sure you drop by again this week to link your family-friendly projects with us. Leaving you with God's Word in 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 and it says, "For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. "

God bless always,
