Hey everyone! Told ya I would be back :O)    I have been having a lot of fun lately working on Christmas cards!! Christmas is one of my favorite times of year (second only to Thanksgiving, but usually I don’t make very many cards for that one).

Tonight, I have a card that uses a lot of my favorite things lately, which I would like to take a moment to talk about. . .

1. Copics!! OMG I am coloring non-stop these days! I take half of my collection with me to school so I can color on the go.  Here is a photo in the hall between classes (I took this on my BB):

If you are wondering, that AWESOME case for the Copics is available from iCopic.com: Copic Empty Wallet – Black Velcro Marker Case for 72 Markers

2. The Cricut Imagine!  My mom and I worked out a little deal that I can use my machine a little bit, as long as I keep my grades up and so I have been having a blast playing with it!
3. My new favorite adhesive the glue runner from Adtech! Totally loving it! Make sure you enter my giveaway here: *Fun Friday Giveaway, we’ve got glue! Click here!
OK, now that you are thoroughly enabled to buy a bunch of the best goodies. . . here is my card. My friends, you are going to want to click on this photo so you can see the enlarged photo because this just might be the BEST/CLEAREST photo I have ever taken of one of my paper projects!!! I have been learning so much in my photography class this semester and this photo shows that. (Can you tell I am really proud of myself!!?? It only took me like 3 years to figure out how to take a decent photo! HA)
The cute little guy and the sentiment are from The Greeting Farm stamp set called Christmas Sweeties, which is available in the iCopic store The Greeting Farm Rubber Stamp – Xmas Sweeties

I colored him in with the following Copic colors.
For the Skin: E00
For the Belt buckle: Y38
For the red clothes: R27 and R29
For the hair: Y11, Y15, and Y21

The tag shape is from the Cricut Imagine Best Friends Cartridge. I liked the distressed creamy color. I inked the edges with Stampin’ UP Real Red Ink using a Sponge Dauber.

The brad with the heart in it is actually a retired brad BUT it is available in the clearance section through my mom’s Stampin’ UP website!! Purchase these beauties ASAP because they will sell out!

The ribbon (real red satin), cardstock (real red), and patterned paper (Candy Cane designer paper) are all from Stampin’ UP also.

  1. The coloring on this little guy is great! Or is that your “camera magic” that you’ve learned? LOL
    Either way, I am going to check out these copics– I used my first one last week while a friend was visiting—Ummm I love SU but Copics??? You tell me!
