Through The Craft Room Door Anything Goes Challenge

Our sponsor this week is our own lovely Anne Fenton with Anne's Cards 4 U. She will be providing 3 digis to our lucky winner!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas Day with family and/or friends. May your meals be tasty, your presents be perfect, and your travels be safe.

I am going to make this brief today. I know! How weird! But I know you have things to do, people to see, and you may not even look at blogs or challenges today. So no sense in dragging it out, right?

I chose Anne's image "Christmas Wreath" for this week and paired it with a Create with TLC sentiment. I colored it with Copics: C0, C2, YR000, YR00, R24, R27, R29, R50, YG13, YG17. I added a bit of white gel pen to the image, and some Glossy Accents to the jingle bells, and Stickles all over the place. I also chose several dies to use: Spellbinders Classic Circles, Scalloped Ovals, and Grand Ovals; Cheery Lynn Ornamental Wreath & Bow, and Bow and Bell; Memory Box Grapevine Wreath and Frostyville Wreath. I added some WOC flowers and a bow from my stash. My embossing was done with EF's: Cuttlebug Holly Ribbons and Sizzix Stampin' Up Holiday Frame.

And so concludes my last Christmas card of the year. I am hoping to get started much earlier on my cards next year, so that I get them out to everyone. I want to again wish you a Merry Christmas, and a very Happy New Year for 2013!

Looking forward to your entries if you find some time to create this week!
