Hi, There!
Okay, I am surprising myself with this one!  Obviously I am not cleaning my house or turkey trimmings shopping.  Another card has been made and about 20 more to go to be made!!  Maybe!!  Here's my card for today.  Thanks so much for taking a peek.  Till next time.  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn
Card Recipe
Image is from Sugar Nellie - Girl With Elf - and colored with my Copics and lots of stardust and liquid pearls
Spellbinder label
Papers from Bazzill/ Believe by Margie Romney-Aslett
Flowers from Wild Orchard Crafts
Snowflake stickers from K&C
Sentiment Sticker is from BoBunny that I mounted on some Bazzill basic red

I would like to enter this card for the following two challenges:
Sugar Bowl Challenge #95  Erika's Sketch - love this sketch but I kept with the holiday colors since I have so many more Christmas cards to make:)
Wild Orchard Crafts Challenge #63  Traditional Christmas - Which I feel is the colors I used and the traditional "Kissing Under The Mistletoe

  8. Hello Carole Anne this is so pretty what a lovely card.
    Thank you for visiting , ref the Serif
    I will email you next time I do a Tutorial on the serif scenes so you can see how. Its so easy Carole Anne, I too was scared to use it at first, but now its second nature. Big Hugs Elaine

  9. OOps forgot to say , When you import a digital stamped image into Serif the image has a white surround , I just take the image into the "CUT OUT STUDIO" , its a tab on the Serif task bar at the top. The cut out studio will allow you to remove the white outline leaving a white stamped image . I then put that image into my scenes resizing it in proportion to the scene, I then print out the full sheet and then colour the image in . Hugs Elaine
