Yes! I am! First time ever from a blog too! I am always commenting on and/or sharing posts on FB and Pinterest in hopes of winning some big prize and... till yesterday... zip. Christmas morning I woke to find a message from a friend on a private FB group that someone with my name in the big ol' city I live in won a prize! I jumped out of bed... I was checking FB on my phone... and got on the desktop and lo and behold... there it was! In black and white... weelllll, in print... ummm... OK on the internet! I won the third prize in Simply Betty's Giveaway! I will receive an entire year of free Teen Scene digis! Boy howdy! I love these digis! They are cute! I can't wait to see what they put out in 2013!
While I was there... I noticed the "Current Challenge" tab... I told myself... "Don't!" You guessed it... I did... here I am... with really... and I mean it this time... the FINAL Christmas card of 2012. I whipped up this little card for the December 18th Challenge at Simply Challenged Challenges. The challenge involved a Simply Betty Stamps image with traditional colors of red / green / silver / gold. This is what I came up with:
Background paper and ribbons are from my stash. I colored the image with EK Success color pencils and Copic markers. Rhinestones are from Michael's $1 bin. I used Season's Greetings Lola. Isn't she adorable? The jingle bell hanging from her cap is silver and the belt buckle is gold. :) I think you can make out the red and green pretty good. Of course, all the fur in the outfit has Snow Crystal from Stampendous. I think I've written before I. Have. To. Use. Sparkle! I. Have. To! :)
