Copic Creations Dec 15th challenge- coloring Pine Trees

Yep, It's December 15th already folks! Every year I seem to "count down" right about now... How come I never get done what I want? Well atleast if you get over to the Copic Creations blog you can see some gorgeous eye candy! The challenge is coloring Pine Trees and House Mouse is the sponsor with a $25.00 dollar gift cert! Woooo Hoooo!! These cards are so darn cute for this challenge I just cant stand it! I just sat here shaking my head at them. Marianne Walker has a GREAT tutorial over on her blog to look at for help. Check it out HERE. I was coloring right along with her on the pine using G14, G17 and G28. My mouse image is called "Mice Star" and he is colored with E31 and E33. The tattered little star is Y21,23 and E33 with a touch of Yo2 I think. The "glow" is Y00. Background is BG000 and I made some cloud forms (hard to see) with torn paper and the same BG000. The sentiment was computer generated. DP is K&Co. Winter Wonderland (love this) and the cool glitter button is American crafts Elements. Good wishes to all this week and hope you all get your preparations in order for the FAST coming holidays ahead!! tfl!

Sweet Snowman

This is "Sweet Snowman" by Penny Black. I am trying like crazy to get more Christmas cards done! Time sure flys and I want to do alot of different ones this year so hope that I can accomplish that! Dp is K & Co. , Winter Wonderland and it is just gorgeous. I colored this guy with Copics..and used CB folder and an EK border punch. The ribbon is from my LCS and the snowflake was in a small pack also at my LCS. Truthfully, I colored this a while ago so I am not sure what all Copic colors I used. But, the outline on the Santa is C1 and BG000. The background blue is also the BG000 plus BGO2, and BG15. Colder weather is coming and here comes Winter!! tfl and have a nice weekend!

NEW COPIC CREATIONS challenge for Dec 1 with a prize from Whipper Snapper designs! YAY!

Over at Copic Creations the new challenge is SNOW..or Snow Men. I picked this adorable Penny Black stamp called "here comes Christmas". I think Snow is a pretty easy job to color and I only had to outline with 2 Copics. C1 and Boo. Actually if you check out the other dt members you will see similar choices. The sky here is B93,95 and 97. Too bad that isnt the weather here...AHEM.. The red bow is R24 and R29 and ..E00 and E93 for the hedgehog faces. Package is YR12 and YR24. I used a MS punch and an EK. Silver stickles were added on the little Christmas lights. ALSO..this month WHIPPER SNAPPER is sponsoring us and they are giving away an AWESOME prize! Check out the CC blog and give it a try! Thanks for looking!
