Christmas in May??

Hello all!! It's Monday and that means that we're making another Christmas card to add to our stack of completed cards for Christmas this year!! Yay!!

This week please help us welcome our newest diva. Her name is America and her blog is Cards Created by America. She makes amazing cards and we're glad to have her as part of our team! I think she'll be starting next week. America's blog address is:

Debbie of "the Paper Garden" will be hosting our challenges every 3rd week of the month and this week her challenge is a color combo challenge! The color combo is: Sage, Chocolate and Peach. If you like to use Stampin Up colors that are closest to the challenge colors, they are: Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip, Apricot Appeal or Cameo Coral. The color palette above are the actual Stampin Up colors but you may use any similar colors. They don't have to be Stampin Up colors. Again, the color combo for this challege is: Sage, Chocolate, Peach. I promise IRL my peach is really much more peach than orange but my camera would not cooperate so it looks orange!! Ugh!!

I used my Pink Cat Studio Lily stamp for this card. I colored my image with my Copics and used a Sakura glitter pen to add a little bling to Lily's coat. I love this image! My sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp. I used Bazzill cardstock for my card. I used Black Memento ink to stamp my image and sentiment. I used a really cute sequin trim to add a little bling and dimension. I can't remember who made it though. (sorry).

This is the weird photo that shows where I colored with my Sakura glitter pen!

Hey Cathy! What an adorable card!! I love the PCS image that you used and you colored it so beautifully!! Love how you put your card together using the challenge colors!! It's beautiful.

Sorry, I've been MIA with my commenting. . .argggh, I'm so behind on life, it's not funny. I just want to lay down and give in and accept that I'll always be behind. But nope, I gotta get up. . .one day, I'll be caught up!

Thanks for being an inspiration each week! Keep up the great work!
