Stay warm

     You know, normally I wouldn't be giving a thought to making a winter themed card at this time of the year, but I believe winter has decided it's going to dig in for good so I'm dedicating this card to all of my crafty friends out there who are having to deal with the snow and ice.
     It's Bellarific Friday at Stamping Bella so it's time to reveal the project I created with the sketch Em revealed last week.

sketch-4 - Feb 28

     This sketch works great for the lanky Uptownies.  I've used Quinn in Her Boots.  Here's a close up of this pretty girl.

Copics Used:
skin--E000, E00, E11, E13
hair--E21, E23, E25, E29
scarf and hat--BG10, BG53, BG72, BG75, YG03, YG93, YG95, YG97

     Make sure you pop over to Blogabella later today and check out what all my Baberooni Sistah's have created with this sketch too.  You can leave a comment for a chance at some Bella Bucks to spend on some fun new rubber.  AND speaking of rubber, Em has all the new stamps in so orders will be flying out to our mailboxes very soon.  I can't wait to get my new goodies.
    Hope you have a great weekend!

  12. Lovely card Tracy and great papers. I must get myself some of these Uptown Girls I am ashamed to say that I don't own any :( I have seen lots of lovely cards made with them ( a lot of them on your blog) but there are just so many nice crafting items out there that my purse doesn't stretch to most of it :( and I'm running out of storage space, lol.
