CCEE, WSC101 Merry Christmas

Happy Thursday you all!!!

We didn't get a chance to go shopping yesterday :(.......I had a sleepless night plus it was raining really hard here!!! We might head to Savannah today and do some serious shopping!!! Autumn is slowly but surely coming and my girls need some long sleeved shirts, pants and shoes....we are so used to just wearing tank-tops and flip-flops!!!

Anyway....since I couldn't sleep last night...I had time to stamp :)...I'll show you another card tomorrow.....!!!

Today I would like to share this super gorgeous *Ice Skate Stocking* image from the Impression Obsession Collection. Isn't it awesome - so fun to color!?!

The sentiment was created with this JustRite - Bonus Times New Roman Font Set. Please click on the photo to see it a bit closer!!!





















The DP is from the new BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses Collection. I added some Kraft CS and piercing around the edges.

The image was inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers. At last I decorated the image and sentiment with some Silver Pearls.

I was inspired to make a *taller* card by this weeks CCEE Challenge . My card measures 4" x 6 ". The layout is from this weeks WSC101 Sketch.

ETA: Just in case you would like to see another card design with the same image...stop by Michelle's blog and check out her beautiful card.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you'll have a wonderful day!?!
