merry kiss-mas

Hi!  Wow, 8 kids plus our own 3 for lego robotics practice can get pretty wild.  After hanging out with all the kids, you can really see how great each one is.  But after about 4 hours of robotics, you really need a break!  And boy, can the kids eat! 

Anyway, I wanted to make a card after seeing the current sketch over at the Deconstructed Sketch no. 22

The triangle in the middle reminded me of Christmas trees so I flipped it and made a Christmas card.

The trees are made from PTI's tree die.  The little tag plus the sentiment is also from PTI and the snowflake is an MFT die.  I embossed the cardstock with a snowflake folder from Sizzix and the red DP is embossed with another Sizzix folder.

I chose TGF's A Cheeky Xmas and colored her in with pencils.  Can you tell I'm slightly addicted to pencils now?  Though I thought her hat was kind of difficult to color.  I outlined the fluffy parts with a light blue copic pen.  There is a small pompom at the end of her hat and I added flower soft too.

Some seam binding ribbon and a pin which totally remind me of snowmen. 

Also plan to enter this into All that Scraps Challenge--anything goes.

It's back to the school routine tomorrow!

Thanks for reading!

Cute Xmas card! Nice coloring, it's so artistic! Love all the embellishments! I actually bought my first copic today from Michaels with my 50% off coupon! I'm pretty much gonna stop after I get the skin tones, which might still take me a while since I feel a little cheap and want to wait for more 50% off coupons. Not like they have much selection though, they only sell 60 colors, plus only the expensive sketch markers!

Wow Eva, just hearing about the kids made me exhausted. LOL! But you managed to create a heck of a beautiful card. I love all the elements you used.

Gorgeous! Love all of the details and your beautiful coloring of that sweet image! And 11 kids and lego robotics? I would be passed out in bed, not crafting, lol!
