Christmas card panic??

Is it time to panic yet?  Well, maybe not yet, but I think I need to get a move on, very soon!

This week at Paper Sundaes, our sponsor is Karen's Doodles!  Karen generously provided each design team member with an image of their choice to play with, and I picked this cute Emma and Snow Scene!  As soon as I had this card three quarters of the way done, my daughter announced that this has to be her Christmas card, so I guess I'm no farther ahead on my cards!  LOL


I used dazzling diamonds on the snow hills, and some white puff paint on the jacket and boot trims.  You can see them a bit better in the close-up:


Our challenge this week at Paper Sundaes is to use something from your stash.  Everything for my card except for my new image, came from supplies from years past.  The papers are by American Crafts, from last year's Merry Mint collection.  The charm was from Stamp and Create.  The sentiment is by Whiff of Joy, from their Magical Wishes sentiment collection.  I hope you will dig through your stash and find something old to play with, and join us for this week's challenge!  The gems are also from my stash, and they are by Basic Grey.

Challenges:
Sweet Stop:  Sketch
Basic Grey Challenge:  Sparkles plus at least one BG product (Basic Grey bling in corners!)
Mad For Markers:  Copics + digi image
Creative Inspirations:  Christmas
4 Crafty Chicks: "Chick" challenge
Color Me Copic:  Elaine's Teddy Bear colouring technique
Diecut Dreams Christmas Club:  Glitter, ribbons & gems
Stamptacular Sunday:  Layer it on (10 layers!)

Thanks for stopping by!
