Bellarific Friday: Merry Christmas!

Hi all,

TGIF to you again!  I have had such a busy week, and the end is not in sight!  My craft room is in a shambles, and my computer has died! (I'm posting this from my parents' computer)
So, I'm desperately trying to get through everything - let's call it an adventure! LOL

This week, over on the Bloggabella, we were challenged to make a Christmas card in July!  My absolute favourite holiday, and it was a pleasure to make this card. 

Here it is:

My card base is Kraft CS, and the fun patterned paper is from a glittered DCWV winter pack - the papers in there are awesome!  I added a white piece across the middle, which was punched with my Martha Stewart icicle edge punch, and I threw some white and turquoise ribbon across that.

I stamped the ADORABLE I Even Love the Box by Mo Manning onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured him with Copics.  I added some shading with my Prismas and OMS, and matted that with a black, then another Kraft piece.
Hope you likey!

Next week's challenge???  Heavy metal!  Em wants you to use some sort of metal on your card.  Challenging enough?  So, make a card using some metallic shtuff and any image sold at Stamping Bella, and send it to Em by Thursday night.  Your card will be published on the company blog on Friday, and you will be entered to win some Bella Bucks!
Everyone enjoy your weekend - it's a long holiday weekend here in Canada! Happy Civic Day!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

It's my favorite holiday as well. If only there wasn't so much prep work involved. Hehe. Now you worked your butt off on this cutie. Your coloring is to die for. Seriously, he comes alive on the page! Good luck with your computer woes.
