The Outlawz Friday Coloring "Anything Goes/Christmas Twist" Challenge

Cannot believe another week has just flown by. It's not like I have been so busy either. It's just that the world has started spinning faster on its axis. Right? Anyway, we have a new challenge for you again today. And it is our end-of-the-month one, in which you can all participate. Anything Goes. Including using this opportunity to make a Christmas card. Which I did this month.

Speaking of the end of this month, I need to mention that our sponsor is the inimitable Sweet Pea Stamps, home to fabulous artists, who create wonderful digis! And our winner this month will receive a choice of 3 digis--which will be difficult to narrow down, if I am an example! (I can spend hours in that web-store, literally!)

I am in a bit of a reflective mood, so I will just go on to my card details. Perhaps next week my sense of humor, (or lack thereof), will return in full force.

I chose Sweet Pea Stamps Behold the Lamb, by Katerina Koukiotis for my card this week. I love this image--it is so sweet! I printed it on X-Press It BC and colored it with my Copics:

Skin: E000, E01, E11
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Lamb: T0, T2, T4
Shawl: RV93, RV95, RV99
Jacket: BG70, BG72, BG75

I used Bo Bunny Altitude DP and paired it with Stampin' Up CS. I added some die cuts using Memory Box Star of Wonder dies. And that's it. I hope you play along with us this week, and have the chance to win the digis! Be sure to check out my talented teammates' inspirations; Carla, Kathi, Vannessa, and Karen have created some wonderful pieces! 

Have a fantastic weekend!
