This week the them at the Penny Black Challenge Blog is Christmas. I had a really hard time getting started on this challenge. It's 90 degrees here in Georgia and humid to boot. Let's just say I wasn't feeling any Christmas cheer. So I started listening to some Christmas music, and before I knew it I had, not one, but three simple little cards.
This one is my favorite. How cute are the little woodland animal playing on a teeter totter!?! Too, too cute! My friend Susan sent me the image and I've been hoarding it because it was way too cute to color. Heehee. When I was younger, I didn't color in my favorite coloring books either. The other day I found a Barbie coloring book in my old stuff that looked brand new. I hadn't colored a single page. LOL.
When I finally worked up the nerve, I colored the image with my Prismacolor markers. The Christmas tree is a sterling charm that I got after christmas for 90% off last year! Yes!! I paid $0.25 for 7 of them. It was such a good deal, I felt a little bit like I was stealing. LOL.
This image is also colored with my Prismacolor markers, but I tried a different color scheme on this one. I love Christmas cards in non-traditional colors like pale blue. In fact, all of the decorations for my Christmas tree are blue. Uh Oh...now I want to go decorate....LOL. Maybe I should wait until AFTER Halloween.
Susan also sent me this cutie-patootie image. Have I mentioned how awesome she is? She is super generous with her time and her stamps. She's so generous that when she saw that a fellow blogger hadn't gotten her Summer Stamp Kit from Magnolia, she offered to stamp the whole thing for her!!! AND to top it all off, her stamping is impeccable. THANK YOU SUSAN!!!!
Thanks for looking!
