'Tis the season for parties!!  And since it is, I did a funny little card with "Ellynn" and the "Quit Drinking" sentiment from Rubbernecker Stamps. I think I have had enough parties already this Christmas season and it's not even December yet!
I used some discontinued papers from Stampin' Up, and coloured the image with Copics. This was a fun card to make, and I used a sketch from my friend Cristena (who really likes my wine bottle prop ;-) ) to put it all together.  

Remember, commenting on our Design Team's posts every week automatically enters you to win all of the stamps used on one of the DT's gal's project. We don't know which designer's project will be chosen, and the winner will be chosen by random. So visit the Rubbernecker blog, leave some kind words on all of our DT's blogs, and maybe you will be this week's winner! For all the details visit the challenge page on the blog HERE.

Spirit of Christmas

I needed to make a Christmas card for my twin daughter's preschool teachers. If I had more time, I would do one for each, but I don't, so one card for the three of them will have to do. Tiddly Inks' "Jill - Spirit of Christmas" is perfect for what I wanted to do because my girls actually have similar hair cuts to the girls in the image. I coloured them in their favourite colours too!

Spirit Of Christmas
I used Copics to colour the image, Michele R Designs digital papers, embellishments and flowers from Live & Love Crafts and Wild Orchid Crafts.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04
Purples: BV08, BV04, BV02, BV00, BV000
Blues: B06, B05, B04, B02, B00

I hope you like how it turned out! Make sure you check out all the awesome stamps at Tiddly Inks, including the new Molly releases some of which are Christmas themed. They're super cute! 💖

I'm submitting this card into the following challenges:

New Challenge at The East Wind

This month's challenge is "I Can See Clearly Now". You need to add something sheer or transparent to your project to follow the rules, and use a TEW image, of course. 

My image is "Lovely Winter Couple" and I used white vellum layered over blue cardstock, which I dry embossed with a Softly Falling embossing folder from Sizzix that is available through Stampin' Up, and my snow flake embellishments are both crystal clear and translucent with a blue tint. I've layered them and used little silver star brads to hold them together. 

You can join us in The East Wind's Facebook group for a monthly contest, and on the BLOG for twice monthly challenges. The challenge on the blog that starts on the 1st of every month is the freebie challenge, and to get the freebie you need to be signed up for the newsletter, so make sure you look for the bright pink box on the blog's homepage to sign up for that!
