The heat is on!

Yup....we are a third of the way into November and my Christmas card blitz is in full swing now! I am starting to feel a bit behind with maybe only a third of my required cards finished. But thanks to Bernice in Windsor, I have inspiration for my mom's card this year....I think I could get 30 of them done in a day if I stay focused. So what does all this mean? Well...for the next three weeks it's gonna be a Christmas card extravaganza here on the blog!

Today I used Stamping Bella's Ornament with Holly and paired it up with Basic Grey paper. This is an AWFUL picture...I may try to retake it later on, but for now this will have to do. I stamped on Bella's BESTEST paper and coloured with copic markers. The shading was done with my new Caran d'Ache pablo pencils....ya....after listening to Paula go on about them I caved, and I'm glad I did because I LOVE THEM!!! They won't replace my prisma's but these have just given me a wider range of colours to play with and I'm a girl who likes to have lots of options!

This past weekend I made a trip to Toronto to pair up with Danabella and a whole whack of other Babes at Stamping Bella. We coloured (well, some of us did!), we ate, we took pictures and we just sat around and had a great day. Here we are, in the back we have Cath, Dana, yours truely (I was feeling REALLY short next to Dana), Pauline and up front, mammabella Emily, Ebru and Paula.

For all you readers who have asked for video tutorials Ebru was a busy babe pushing her hand to the limit to hold up that camera and take all kinds of videos so you may just get your wish and see some of us in action. Oh ya, I must also say that Ebru is like a total sweetheart and came with little gifts and a card for all of us! I'm still overwhelmed and that reminds me, I must send her an email!

That's it for me today...time to get ready for the day job!

Ohh Linda, you are so sweet. I have been so busy trying to put together the videos, I have not had the time to visit all the blogs and leave comments. It was so nice to see you again and I am glad you liked the gift but most of all how did my card do? did it pass for coloring :o)
