The Outlawz Friday Coloring Anything Goes/Christmas Twist Challenge

Howdy doodles! Hope this Friday finds all of you well and looking forward to the weekend. Of course, if you are retired like me, every day is part of a weekend. My life is one lonnnnnng weekend. I am not complaining, mind you; rather I am basking in the goodness that is my life...

So we have an AG challenge again, with a Christmas Twist, if you wish. I wished. Thought I should make a Christmas card before the year is over, and I have none to give out. Seriously, can you believe that it is the end of February already? What the heck happened to the beginning of the new year? Since I still have trouble writing and typing '2015', it doesn't seem like the year should be 1/6 over. Of course, that could just be due to my age, too. We'll never know...

Our prize this month, sponsored by Sweet Pea Stamps, for our randomly-selected participant, will be four digital images. And they have so many images by wonderful artists! So be sure to get your entries in for a chance at this fabulous prize!  

I feel like I could use Sweet Pea Stamps on everything I make. Ahhh, the joy of being sponsored by Lynette and crew! I have been trying to use images from different artists to give you a flavor of what's available at Sweet Pea Stamps. Of course, you could just go look, you know.

Today I chose Joanne Schempp's Kristy for my card. Gary thinks she is a wee bit sexy for Christmas, so I will probably give this card to him in December. He secretly wishes I looked like her, I know he does. Too bad, Dude. Get a life. Where was I? Oh, yes. The image. I printed Kristy on X-Press It BC, and colored her with my Copics:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E15, YR02
Hair: E31, E35, E39, E59, E49
Greens: YG61, YG63, YG67, G29, T4, YG21, YG23, YG25
Bow/Ornaments: BG000, BG10, BG11
Cones/Cinnamon sticks: E31, E35
Outfit/Apples: E02, R05, R08, E07, E09
Fur: T0, T1

Rest of the story: MFT Fishtails Flag Stax die cut, Wink of Stella Silver, Pearl Pen Silver, American Crafts Kringle & Co. DP, Stampin' Up CS. Over and out. 

Out of what? My mind? Possibly. I should mention that my lovely and talented teammates--Carla, Kathi, and Laine--have produced wonderful inspiration for you to peruse. And get inspired by. So please do. Then, using any media of your choice, color up an image for your project and play along with us. You know you want to. So do it! (Pretty please?)

And do have a mahvelous weekend!
