FTTC149 Happiest of Holidays....

Howdy friends!

It's the busiest season of all....are you counting down the days till Christmas??? Did you get all your X-mas shopping done??? I'm almost done wrapping the last few presents. I'm soooooo looking forward to seeing my girls faces when they are opening their presents :) !!! Did you do any baking yet??? Yesterday, my sweet little Mimi and I felt like baking some yummy German *Vanillekipferl* and today we'll probably make a different batch of cookies.... can't wait to eat them!!! What is your favorite cookie recipe???

Well, if you have time this week how about joining us for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC149??? Beate is our hostess and has challenged us all to try *TELESCOPING* an image. Stamp your image two or three times and cut it smaller every time for a layered look. Here are a few samples over at the SCS Gallery or just swing by the FTTC Blog to see a new tutorial from Beate.



The beautiful image on my card is from the Winter Bouquet and the sentiment is from the Sentimental Christmas Set.  The bouquet image was inked in Memento Black and I colored it with these Copic Markers ~ R14, R17, R27, G21, G24, YG11, G94, YG67, B93, Y08, Y35, E27 and Colorless Blender. The DP is from some my SU leftovers stash and I embellished it with the yummy SU Chocolate Satin Ribbon, a Brown Button with a Gold CordGold Pearls and the Dazzling Diamond Glitter.

Please make sure to view all the beautiful samples the team has created ~ Cindy, Maki, Heather, Tammy, BeateMona and our December Guest Designer Theresa Pollack.

Have a fabulous week and enjoy this beautiful holiday season.....

OMGoodness, this is STUNNING! Love all the colors in the image...such a pop against the white! My family loves the sour cream sugar cookies (I add red or green sugar crystals instead of the cinnamon/sugar topping it calls for). Me? I prefer anything with chocolate in it - lol! Merry Christmas, Silke!

Carole said...

Ah Silke, you've done it again, STUNNING card and fabulous coloring. Love it! Merry Christmas Silke. Hugs ... Carole
