Warm hearts


     Don't know what's going on this year but I am full fledged into making Christmas cards.  Worked out great that the new challenge this week at There She Goes is "Winter Fun".  This is also There She Goes Again week so we'll be featuring three of the older sets all week long.  This one is called "Wonderful Winter Wishes" and I think it's just adorable.
     I have so little spare time to just play, but I was fairly ahead of schedule with my DT cards and decided to check out one of the sketch challenges that I really like (but hardly ever get to play along with).  This card was based on the current sketch at Seize the Sketch.  I just picked up this American Crafts paper pad on clearance at Marshalls and loved the blue/red/chocolate color combo.
Here's a close up of the huggers.


Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, R30
hair E25, E33, YR20, YR21
boy clothes R37, R39, R59, E31, E33, E35, E51, E71, E74, E79

girl clothes BG10, BG11, BG32, BG49, C0, C2, E71, E74, E79
girl shoes E31, E33, E35, E37, E51

     Hope you can pop in and play along with our "Winter Fun" challenge.  Happy Monday!
