SSS136


Good Morning Everyone!!  I'm running so late today.  I didn't go to bed until after 3AM helping our Elf on the Shelf "Jolly" and his twin sister "Holly" put together a North Pole Breakfast for the kids to kick off the Christmas season!!  It turned out SO cute!!  (I promise to post pictures tomorrow)  :)

In teaching my Copic classes I had a lot of people asking me about coloring flowers.  Eeekk, I had never colored a floral image before!!  I don't even own any!!  So I decided that I had better fix that and went on a search when I found this beautiful Iris digital image from LaPashe.   Coloring this flower was crazy fun for me and I could not believe how much I loved it once it was done.  Now I'm hooked and am on the hunt for more floral images!!  :)  The image was colored twice and then popped up for dimension.



I ADORE this weeks sketch!!  It's perfect for large images and there are so many possibilities for embellishing.  I took some creative license since I kinda cheated and used the current sketch on my last card.  :)  I hope you will find some time to check out what the other Sugar Babies have done with this weeks sketch and then play along with us.

Oh my GOSH!! This is amazing! I love the way you have colored the flower with such high contrast. Oh and the colors are just so bright and fun. The 3D is the perfect touch. Then the rest is just so pretty too; what a super amazing card! Love it!

Beautiful card Wendy!!! Brandon just got an Elf on the Shelf this year and he's not quite sure what to think of it so we had to 'change up' the elf rules a little bit! LOL Hopefully he'll be more into it when he's older cause I think it's so FUN! He named his Noccio! Enjoy your breakfast!
