Christmas Carol

Hi all,

Well, it's sad to say it, but I'm pretty sure summer is on its way out :-(  The weather has been so cool, and I've switched to pants and sweaters, etc.  Sigh...
Well, it's only a few months to get through, and we're back on track, right???

Anyway, I was going through my Bella images, and I found a Mo Manning that I haven't coloured up yet - can you believe it??? A Mo Manning that hasn't been coloured!

Well, here it is:

My card base is Kraft CS, the designer papers are all from the SU pack called Christmas Cocoa, and all the mats are black and white.  I punched the white strip with an SU scallop edge punch and added some black grosgrain ribbon around it.  It's pretty simple, but these papers are delicious!

I stamped the ever-so-cute Jingle Bells by Mo manning onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, as usual!  These images are so fun to colour - I can't even tell you how much I adore them!  I coloured them with Copics, and added some shading with my Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  I added some Wheat sponging around the outside, topped it with a black mat, and I'm done!  I think they are super adorable, and Mo has outdone herself!

Make sure you are checking out the Bloggabella regularly - all the challenges are posted there each week, and Em has so many things to show everyone and talk about that you are sure to be entertained!  Don't forget about the sketch challenge for Friday!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

He he - I have this image and haven't colored it yet either. That's because I bought it so long ago..in digital from Mo way before they were released in rubbah and I learned how to color and I forgot about it. See, that just proves the point that rubbah is bettah - it's not outta sight! Love your coloring my friend but I must tell ya that I'm not so excited about wintah comin'.
