Are you ready for Christmas


Well today I have 2 cards to share with you and they are all about Christmas.  I don't know about you but this year has flown by as it feels like the kids just got out of school and now they are going back on Aug 1.  I  spent this weekend clothes and school supply shopping and the money adds up when you are buying for 3 kids. I hate school shopping as it is always packed and it's hard to find shirts with collars that they all 3 will wear. So I haven't had any crafting time this weekend or blog visiting time.
Okay on to my cards.  Both cards are by Katerina Koukiotis and are from Sheet #3, Plate #159, which can be purchased at "Sweet Pea Stamps".  This first one I used the image
 Follow me".  


I used some Basic Grey "Jovial" DP, Spellbinders Pendant Die(cut in half and added to each side of my colored image), Recollections Flourish bling and shelf adhesive pearls. The image was stamped  on Mohawk 100lb color copy Brilliant white CS with Memento ink and colored with copics.


This 2nd image Katerina Koukiotis's "Home for the Holidays".  

I used this colors to color my image.
Skin: E11,E01,E00,E000 and E0000
Hair: E49,E47,E57,E51 and E50
Reds: R35,R37,R39,R89,RV99 and W9
Tree: E33,E35,E57,E47 and E49
Chalk on her cheeks
Clear Sakura Glitter Gel Pen



Well that is it for me today as I have a ton to finish today and hope to get some down time so I can go visit all my blogging friends.  Have a wonderful week.

We are having a Blog Hop with Sweet Pea Stamps July 29 and we will be featuring our artist " Rebecca Sinz", plus I will try to have some blog candy to give away with the hop so stay tuned.

Oh Angela these are beautiful cards. I haven't had a chance to tell you honored I am to be on a DT with you, it's very humbling. I have learned sooo much from following your blog and I challenge myself by casing your coloring it has taught me so much. You have also saved me money I now use your Tack it technique for my unmounted stamps. It works wonderfully. Thank you so much for being so generous.
