In the meantime, we have another challenge for you. It is our monthly color/photo inspiration challenge. And the colors are so pretty and so perfect for your holiday cards:
Our monthly sponsor for December is Ppinkydolls Art, home to fun, fabulous images that I absolutely love! Our randomly-selected winner this month will receive a choice of 3 digital images. Lucky you, whomever you are. (Or is it 'whoever'? I think it is 'whomever', but if I am wrong...in a word, whatever.) Anyway, I wish I was eligible. So be sure to enter this week with a creation featuring an image which you colored. You can use any coloring medium you wish.
I used my cutie-patootie Ppinkydolls image last week. So, this week I am using a Saturated Canary image, Wendy, for my card. I think this image is adorable and perfect for my animal-loving granddaughter, Brynn, who turns 11 tomorrow. We are going to a birthday brunch for her, which should be a lot of fun. Happy Birthday, Brynn!
I printed Wendy on X-Press It BC, colored her with my Copics and Twin Touch Brush markers, Frantaged her, and Zutterized her, (along with my DP from the Bazzill Basics Paper Believe collection.) I used Stampin' Up CS with my DP and added some tulle, ribbon, lace, a dog button, and a Cheery Lynn Nautical Wheeler Doily die cut. Hope Brynn likes this.

I had planned to show you photos of our completed deck and patio with the new furniture. But, alas and alack, we are still awaiting the delivery of four deck chairs. So I will wait until we have our furniture complete. BTW, it has been too cold to sit out there the last few days. I have had to resort to looking out the windows. (Not a bad view, though, for sure!)
We are headed to the Cardinals/Seahawks game on Sunday night. Plan to make more noise than I ever have, if that's possible. I am sure I will be annoying to any 'Hawks fans that are nearby, and probably will even annoy Gary. (I say tough darts. Use some earplugs.) I think the pundits are wrong, and that we will win this game. Certainly will be a brutal shock to Seattle when we do!
I hope you have time to play along with us this week. I realize that many of you may be as rushed as I am to get ready for Christmas. But do at least take a minute to stop by and check out the fabulous inspiration by my talented teammates: Carla, Kathi, and Laine!
And I not only wish you a wonderful weekend, but I also wish you a very Merry Christmas. May this be a season of wonder and love for you all...
