Honey Bee Stamps- Warm Wishes stamp and die 

Copics- E11 13 15 21, W1 3 5, BG000 01 05, YG01 03 05
Distress Oxides- Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Twisted Citron (I wish now that I had been a little heavier on the background colors)
Lawn Fawn- a snippet of pixie dust card stock (last used on projects posted 10-26 and 10-29

I  won a gift certificate during Nichol Spohr's 12 Days Of Christmas. One of the sponsors was Honey Bee Stamps and I just got this stamp and die last night in the mail. I had to make one last Christmas card. I love that this set can be made to look masculine or feminine. Plus, it has different holiday stamps so it doesn't have to be a Christmas scene. A big thank you to Nichol and to Honey Bee Stamps.

When I saw the video on these products from Lawn Fawn back in September I wanted them. You know how you watch videos and they pull you in and mesmerize you? It's happened to you. No denying it. My Copic colors aren't all the same as in the video because I didn't have some of the colors. I tried to get as close as possible because I thought the cards that were colored were beautiful. I'll be showcasing 3 of these cards from the set. This is the first one I made. These were a great way to make an assembly line of cards. 

Here is the link to the Lawn Fawn video.

Bio.
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people. 
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself. 


This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

Many thanks to our Generous Sponsors for their continued support

Also, as your hostess for this fortnight,
I'm offering this cute stamp called "Warm Drink"
 to one lucky entrant. You have to enter for a chance to win.

I can't tell you how many pictures I took trying to showcase my card. This is as good as it got. Y'all know how that glitter can be elusive when it comes to getting a good picture don't you?

I really thought I'd wait until next year to use both of the Black Friday purchases but they kept whispering "stamp and color" over and over and over. I had to indulge them.

I like that these would go well with a piece of kraft wrapping paper. They're also kinda rustic looking and would look nice on a man's gift. 

The 25 Days of Christmas Tags - I was inspired by Tracey McNeely's mitten tag from Day 24.

I love this digital image. I saw it on Misti O's blog A Card A Day a few weeks ago.  Another "I had to have it". Thanks for enabling me, Misti. Okay, it was because she made the image look so pretty.

Update: I went to enter my card at the Power Poppy challenge and saw that one of my team mates aNNie had colored the same image. I wonder if Misti enabled her, too!
