Christmas Baubles*

Good morning everyone!! It has been a busy time. Lots of running around with my husband, picking up kids, taking kids, work and crafting and all that stuff. Nothing like being a mother/taxi LOL!!  And Christmas is coming up so quickly.  I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week! Wow!!  It just seems like this year has flown by. I'm off to work here in a minute. I have to try to beat the rain since I'm riding the bike. I have to get all rain geared up first :)  I have a feeling I will be soaked through on the way home LOL Rain gear or no rain gear! Maybe it will be gone by the time I leave this afternoon; we will see!

I hope you all have a wonderful day and rest of your week! My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who has been involved in any kind of terrorist act of any kind all over the world. I pray that no more will happen. I also pray for those poor souls that don't like that I'm a Christian and put mean, nasty, foul comments on my Facebook. I'm sorry you feel the need to curse me because you don't feel the same way I do. But... that is what we are ... not all the same and not all having the same views. It is just sad you have to strike out with hatred and foul language. But... I hope you have a wonderful day too! :)  *hugs* to you all!!

Here is my card for today:

For this card I've used Christmas Glitter Shoujo from Lemon Shortbread. I just think she is so adorable! I've colored her with my Copic Markers and Ive done a small amount of layering. I've added some 3D paint to the sparkles along with some gold and silver Wink of Stella to add some glittery spots. I've used clear Wink of Stella on the baubles to add some glitter to them. I've also added some glitter to the white part of the sleeves, the puffs in her hair and on her dress and on the white belt part of her dress. I've hammered down a bottle cap and placed the circle sentiment inside it. Then I covered it with Diamond Glaze. The background of the image I used colored pencils - Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. All of the papers are scraps and I added three types of ribbons behind the image and on the inside as well. I've also added a few gems at the top.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Eyes: B02, B26
  • Lips: R22, R24, R27
  • Shirt, Scarf, Ribbons and Ornaments: R20, R22, R24, R29, R59
  • Dress: G21, G24, G29, G46
  • Hair: Y35, YR20, Y21, E50
  • Gold Ornaments: Y00, Y11, Y15, Y18, YR24
  • Silver Ornaments: C00, C1, C3, C5
  • Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04
