I got to thinking the other day....

...that I only have about 5-6 weeks to get my Christmas cards done and mailed! YIKES! So you know what that means? The Christmas card blitz IS ON and you may not see anything other than Christmas cards for the next several weeks. Are you ready for that?

I spend Sunday colouring like a mad woman...well, maybe not a mad woman...but I did colour three images pouring my heart and soul into every one of them and I hope you enjoy them this week.

How 'bout we start with a Mo to get things rolling. This is a Mo Manning image named Noelle bearing gifts available in rubber at Stamping Bella. You may already know that I love my Mo's, but the Christmas Mo's are by far my fav's of hers. I will also say that if I had a little girl she would SO have had a melton wool coat hand made by yours truly with felt appliqued trees and a snowman! Just like this one.

After stamping the image on bella's BESTEST paper, I started colouring the image with copics, but then used so much pencil that the copic colours kind of became irrelevant. I will say that main body of the coat was started with warm greys, and the trim and appliqued snow hills was done with cool greys. That gave just a bit of contrast, although it is not obvious in the picture....but believe me, it is there! And of course she has her red velvet dress on underneath which was done with R22, shaded with E07 and E09. Love those shade's of E's to give a nice rich red.

Because this card will be mailed, I held back on adding anything bulky but couldn't resist creating some falling snow with glitter.

Well, that's it for today! I'll be back tomorrow with another Mo!
