Just hangin' around

Can ya stand one more Christmas card?? I was going through my High Hopes stamps the other day & realized there were so many holiday ones I meant to use this year, but didn't get around to. So I picked one of my very favorites & made yet one more Christmas card!



This bundle of cuteness is called Callie Christmas Kitty & was drawn by my good friend Crissy Armstrong. I always knew I was blessed to be part of the High Hopes team....but now that Crissy is no longer drawing for them I am extra thankful to have gotten to know Crissy....& to have in my possession so many of the wonderful stamps she created!!

Back to the card! I used my Copics to color Callie....& added lots of glitter to the ornaments. The papers are SU's Riding Hood Red (boy will I be sad when I run out of this!), Always Artichoke, & Basic Grey Figgy. The sentiment is the same one I used on my Penny Black card from a few days ago.....it's from a Studio G clear set from Michael's....cut out with my oval Nesties. I added some Poinsettias & leaves.....some stitching....& some red half pearls. Oh, can't forget the Clear Glaze added to the candy canes!!





Those candy canes took me forever to color!! Not only do I have a hard time *photographing* reds, but apparently I also have a hard time *coloring* with them! And Valentine's Day is next......don't think I'll get a break from the red any time soon!!

I hope you all had a splendid Christmas!! We went to my mom's both days & oh my gosh, am I stuffed!! Soooo much food.....I barely ate anything today, lol!! I'm *still* full! But tomorrow I am going to go over there & get some leftovers.....heehee.....it was so good we're going to have a repeat tomorrow night!!! Any night I don't have to cook is a joyful night for me!!

Hi Michelle! Merry Christmas! I saw your post and had to laugh -- I always have way more stamps than I actually have to use and I'm hoarding my last bits of Riding Hood Red. Too too funny but I love the card and I think your candy canes turned out magnificent!
