Tis the Season and Look what I Got!!

It is a very windy cool day here in Saskatchewan...it feels like winter is on his way.

We went to Saskatoon on Sat to visit my Mother for her birthday. My oldest brother and his lovely wife (who made the best carrot cake we've ever eaten) set up a wonderful celebration for her. It was held in the home my mother stays in. Most of our family made it there and one brother brought his electric piano and played old songs for most of the afternoon. Mom loved it.....there was lots of laughing and singing and I think it made a brighter day for most of the seniors in the home.

Yesterday we spent most of the day in Regina. We got a fair amount of Xmas shopping done. At Costco they had a K&Company gift box of 300 designer papers including some with glitter. It was only $19.99....Of course I can't really open the box to look at the paper...because my DH bought it for me for Xmas .....Waah!!...but by looking at the outside pics.....It is Fabulous paper!!

Now on to my card..."Tis the Season"

I love this cute little elf from High Hopes ...and I used the SC149 sketch for this card;

Stamps - High Hopes and HOTP

Paper - whisper white, blue bayou, dcwv, basic grey

Ink - classic black, creamy caramel, close to cocoa

Accessories - snowflakes, ribbon, stitching, bling, glitter

I colored this image with Prismacolor pencils (OMS) and H20's

Look What I Got!!!! ....I am So Lucky!!

I received this Totally Fabulous blog candy from Norma ....be sure and visit her Wonderful blog...Ditty Dots She is always creating something Fabulous!!

Arggg....this is my second attempt to post a comment. The last one lost my monologue. Your card is amzing, the coloring without parallel. I have been wanting to ask for awhile know about your application method with these two mediums. When I combine the two, I end up with distinct transition lines which don't blend out the greatest. Unlike watercolor I find the H2O's create a bit of a film. I would love any tips or tricks or method of application. Your blog candy is awsome by the way!
