Joy of Christmas...

Hello everybody! I can't believe we are just 4 days away from Christmas!!! I'm sure the rest of you are all ready with all the gifts wrapped and cards done, right! I know I'm not there yet... with packing and preparing the house to be put on the market, I've fallen a little behind, but I won't let squash my spirit! I think I'm annoying some of my coworkers since most of them are on the count down for the season to be over and the store to go some what back to normal. I call the scrooges when the scowl at me signing along with the Christmas songs! ;-) 

On to my card which of course is what you came by to see!

I stamped the image and sentiment on some watercolor paper. Then using some distress markers and a (re used) wink of stella, I colored it in. (If you are wondering what I mean by reused wink of stella... I filled the barrel with water once the original liquid ran dry.) It does double duty as it leaves tons of shimmer while I watercolor the image! Which you can see better in the image below.

I ran a white panel through my cuttlebug and adhered it to the card base, before adding the colored panel. I felt it needed just a bit more sparkle so I added a few die cut glitter snowflakes.

Be sure to stop by and play along with our challenge over at Die Cut Diva's! We would love to see what you make and you then have a chance to win one of two prizes this month!!!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish everyone a very happy and safe holiday season!!!
