By Special Request

I've got this Christmas card I made when I first started coloring with Copic markers. Since then, I've had a request for the same card a total of SEVEN times, well eight if you count the last time because she wanted two of the cards. Each time is a little different because I tend to run out of one thing or another. Each time before this one, I forgot to photograph the project! Can you believe it?!? I'm still questioning myself about it! But I remembered this time and I'd like to share it with you. There's two cards and I made them identical with the exception that I flipped the image on one of them:
Here is the second card:
I originally had no intention of blogging or entering these in challenges but I thought to myself... what? These are gorgeous! They must be shared! lol So I am!

I'd like to enter these cards into these challenges:

Sassy but Classy

This week, Fitztown's Design Team and I are hosting Challenge #46 - Step Card. I'll be honest with you... I almost called in sick! lol I've done this once before using a tutorial I found on Pinterest and I must not have read and understood the instructions because I had to cut... and cut... and cut... and when I thought I was done... I had to cut some more! :'( I almost cried! lol Ssooo... this time around... I found a template at Digital Delights and JUMPED. ON. IT! Jury is still out on that but I was able to at least get the base cut correctly. However, I'm thinking... I don't know how to get it to sit right so I can photograph it. Every time I tried to get a picture... it insisted on laying down! Lazy! lol It still came out much nicer than my first one and I didn't have to cut... and cut... and cut... and when I thought I was done... cut some more! lol
Here is my card:

BW: DayDreamer

This is my DT project for one of Beary Wishes releases for June. This is Daydreamer. I think this image makes for a great card for a young girl. I used a bold red, by the way, one of my favorite colors! I like to color hair black, too. I just can't help myself! If you were to visit my blog often, you'd notice I make quite a few projects using red and coloring the hair black. The image reminds me of a lazy summer afternoon at a park enjoying the beauty of nature.

Here's my Saturday project for the Christmas in July: Week-long Challenges/Inspiration:
Here's a close up of the image:
The theme is "Show Me Your Santa". I kinda looked at all the entries so far cause I wasn't sure what was meant by that. There was one girl who had this picture:
... and a couple of the entries had Santa on the beach so I thought... hmmm... but as I continued to visit the other blogs... some of them just had a Santa and they understood it like me... "Show Me Your Santa" so here I am showing you my Santa. lol 
I love Bugaboo images! They are just so Cah-You-T! I've even applied as a Guest Designer but I will not hold my breath. The list was LONG. I was number 142! Can you believe it?!? I can dream though! :)
So I'm getting off the subject... surprise! I do that a lot... ADD... I'm sure of it! I've used a sketch from Digi Sketch Challenge. The challenge is "In the Garden or Sketch". I think they'll know... I'm using the sketch... but I'll be sure to clarify that for them. Here's the sketch:
