A Touch of Christmas Thursday's #1

** two posts today, be sure to check out my Sparkly Thursday post below this one!**


Over the last few weeks Kimberly and I have been emailing each other and getting to know one another. One thing we found out is that we both really want to get a jump start on our Christmas cards and tags this year.
So I suggested a day where we would each post either a card or tag with a Christmas/ Winter theme....we decided on Thursday's. So hopefully we can get ahead of the game this year.
If you'd like to join in, just leave a comment and let us know so we can check out your creations too!!
So here's what I came up with for this first A Touch of Christmas Thursday~



supplies:
What I did:
  • stamped my image onto cardstock and colored with copics
  • added some sparkle to her bows and stocking with copic glitter pens
  • cut out my image and mats with my nesties, used my SU punch for the sentiment
  • used my white pen to make dots on the scalloped circle and used my CM fine tip markers to doodle around the edge of the image and sentiment
Be sure to check out Kimberly's blog to see what she created this week too!
