I loved this challenge because I MUST get a grip on my Christmas cards soon so I don't find myself in the crunch I was in last year! I DID NOT ENJOY THAT! I find myself stressed enough during the holidays that I need to do everything I can to help ease it off.
So...what did you think about Stamping Bella's release this week? OMG....I was whirling!!!!! The bella all gussied up with her dog....sooooo me! And the new addition of the little peeps! Killer cute! The Lulu's, the Mo's...OMG!!!!! SOOOOOOO glad I can color again. Although, I have to say, since I have been back to work my wrist has taken a bit of a setback and has become very sore. Even in places where it didn't break! The last two nights even the sheets touching my skin has been very painful. The physiotherapist says that is good because it means the nerves are starting to regenerate, but OMG....can't they do it without letting me know!!!! The last couple days has been the first time in WEEKS that I have taken anything for pain. I hope this does NOT last long because it could put another crimp in my livlihood!
Enough gushing (and whining), here is my card for this weeks Christmas in July challenge. I decided to take Izzie has a prezzie and colour her up in a red velvet dress holding some xmas prezzies? what do ya think? her dress does look like velvet even though NO VELVET WAS USED IN THIS CARD!
For the inquiring minds, I stamped her on Bella's bestest paper and coloured her with the following copic markers: (but as always, I used prismacolor pencils and gamsol to add the shading)
E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20
E30, 31, 33, 35, 40, 41, 43
R14, 24, 27, 29, 59
Y0000, 00, 23, YG0000, G20, 40, 82
W00, 0, 1, B60
