15 Days of Christmas Cards - Day 8

Good Morning! I can't believe I'm already half way thru my little series. Welcome to day 8. I am so glad you're here.

I don't know if you all know what a HUGE fan of All That Scraps stamps I am. I love them. I feel like the Pixies, Kiki's and Emma & Trevor are my little friends. So of course Emma has to be featured.

You are also not going to believe how many challenges I got to play with just with this one little card. I do love this card. I used white card stock as my base and then layered a piece of Real Red card stock that I had embossed with Spots and Dots embossing folder. I also used Glorious Green and Basic Black for mats. I colored the image using copics and then highlighted a tad with a white gel pen. I used white puffy paint for the snow on the tree and grated Styrofoam for the fur trim of her hat.

So here's the line up of challenges:

1. The Crafty Pad - Use triangles (the border & the tree).
2. Lord Have Mercy! - The sketch.
3. Corrosive Challenge - Use red and green.
4. All That Scraps - Anything Christmas.
5. Crazy 4 Challenges - Use a punch (the border).
6. Pink Elephant - Favorite coloring method. Copics!

Six challenges!! Can you believe it!? Whoo-hoo!! I don't think I've ever done that many.

Thanks for joining me today for day 8. I hope to see you back here tomorrow.

I came to find your Cocoa Mitten card so I could comment on that one too. Since I don't see him here I had to tell you that it is cute too!
