Christmas Card

Yippee I got some fabantabulous news this afternoon. My grades are in the system from the summer semester and I earned two A's and a B. It was hard because of the reduced time but well worth it. I rewarded myself by making a card with my newly received Sugar Nellie stamps. I ordered two from Funky Kits. I inked up both of them but have only colored one so far. I am making it my goal to buy and use more stamps with little boys in them. I have a boy and a girl but since I'm a girl I'm partial to buy all girlie stamps. So the first stamp is Elisabeth Bell Trimming the Tree. He's adorable. At ABC Christmas Challenge this week their challenge is P for Present. Trimming the Tree doesn't come with any presents so I added some with the Greeting Farms Chef Ian. It's a great set and has so many different additions. One of them happens to be a present. I then headed over to Priscilla Styles who always has some great sketches. I then put it all together and voila:
I can't seem to get a good picture with my camera but this will have to do.
I used cardstock from Hobby Lobby
SU (Retired) Holiday Stickers
Elisabeth Bell Trimming the Tree Stamp
Greeting Farm Chef Ian (Presents)
Copics
Glitter
