Make a happy noise
Nope, your eyes aren't deceiving you. You ARE seeing a Christmas card posted here on my blog. hee hee I can't count it as my first make for this year cause it has to go to Art Impressions, but it is Christmas. The image is called Joyful Carolers. Aren't they a fun bunch! I really needed to work on something cheery after the last week and a half I've had.
If you've been reading my last few posts you know that I've been under the weather. Seems like I am the NON-happy owner of a pinched nerve in my back or neck that chooses to manifest itself in some pretty strange ways. It's fave is to make the back of my head numb. Not at all a pleasant experience and thankfully between Aspercreme and a heating pad it seems to be getting better. Unfortunately the culprit seems to be sitting in front of the computer or my crafty desk for long periods of time so I'm going to have to do some serious cutting back in those areas. My Kindle has been a lifesaver for visiting you guys for the past several days. Even though I seem to be on the mend I sure would appreciate any prayers and thoughts you'd like to send this way. That always helps.
I colored the guys yesterday and made up the card today. This mornings crafty table time seems to have stirred up that nerve again so I need to finish this post up quickly and get out of this chair.
Here's a close up of the carolers. I'm not listing the colors because I used a ton. If you have a particular question I think I'll be able to remember which pens I used. I used my dotty stamp and some Versamark to add white embossed snow on both the card base and on top of my colored image.
Have yourself a great day!
