Hello dear friends~~~~~
OK it is time to reveal the surprise that I mentioned on monday and be sure to read to end of post~~~a surprise for you is in store also :)
I have been selected to be a member of The Pixie Cottage DT-----YEAH!!!!!!  Michelle has expanded her design team and has a Great Group of Designers joining The Pixie Cottage Challenge Blog!!  The list is on my sidebar~~so be sure to check us out each wednesday and better yet--join in the fun and maybe you will win some fab prizes ;)  The stamp I am sharing today was my first PC stamp that I won on the challenge blog last year.  Thanks Michelle!!!!:)
Oh and by the way the stamp I used to make my halloween tag was from The Hannah Mini collection~~Hannah witch~~OMGosh these are adorable and wondrous to color---you will be seeing more of them.  Either click HERE to view or scroll to next post ;)

Onto The Pixie Cottage Challenge #95~~sketch/theme is "Christmas Card"*****Now you can either use the sketch below OR make a Christmas Card Or use both (as I did)!!!
Made my first twisted easel card using "Hannah's Letter" by Sandra Hammer.  Now I love Pics~~so beware :D LOL
Colored Image with Copics and black pastel pencil.  Sponged TH old paper DI to soften edges.  Snow in tree and on ground was given sparkle with DecoArt glistening snow writer pen and after that dried I added a snowier effect using my Marvy Snow Maker pen (this puffs as you heat it and as I found.. you can add several layers-whatever pleases you) to tree, Hannah's hat, cuff on jacket, mailbox, on the ground cover, on the greeting, and as you see more pics you will see it on flower arrangements as well as the Jolee tree embellie that I used :D  LOVE THIS STUFF!!!!
Shows sketch layout and the fun BG Wassail papers.  Red cs is Recollections.  SB tag and SU modern label punch created Hero Arts greeting.  

Lucious arrangement is WOC flowers, stamens, ribbon, pearls and lace!!!  There's that snow again:D--LOL
Branches are SB foilage, HC Belle Rose, McGill and MS punches.  The added ornaments are Jolee's stickers which was a pack I got as candy from Barbara-- Forgotten Scraps~~Thanks dear!!!

Added a SB Labels 4 nestie for a personal message to be written :)
