Christmas at Crafting By Designs

Can you believe it is already November 25th!!  that is shocking! Today is my son's birthday... he is 17 today. He gets to work on his birthday LOL  But I think he is happy about it!  More attention that way LOL  He also works tomorrow, but it is later so we get to have Thanksgiving Lunch together and then he will go off to work.  So that is our next couple of days. And I do not go out on Black Friday. That means I will enjoy my day inside crafting. And Thanksgiving day we will turn the tv on to the parades and then some Christmas Hallmark movies LOL My family is sick of them already! It will be a great rest of the week. I have some Christmas gifts to work on!

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe week ahead. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the USA. Happy crafting!!

I have done a Christmas card for Crafting By Designs. Here is my card today:

For this Christmas card I have used Aurora Woods from Ching-Chou Kuik. I've colored her up with my Copic markers and I've used a little bit of Copic Opaque White as well. For the rest of the card I have used scraps of white card stock and lace. I did a bit of embossing with two different folders. I did a bit of layering of the image and I hope you can see it well enough in the photos. I was going to just leave it as an ATC, but I decided to put it on a card instead.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Background: YG05, BG45, B04, RV19, V17, B69, B79, C10
  • Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04
  • Hair and Eyes: E21, E25, E29
  • Trees: G20, G21, G24, G28
  • Reindeer Hat: E41: E43, E44, E47, E49
  • Reindeer Nose: R22, R24, R27
  • Tree Trunk: E43, E55, E57
