Santa's Sack and a Pixie Dust Studio Challenge!


Hello! My blog bud Lisa posted about a challenge over at Pixie Dust Studio. The challenge is to make a card with this FREE Santa image with some type of texture.  I colored my image with Copics, but added some crystal effects and glitter to the fur trim on Santa's suit.  I think this is one of the cutest Santa images I have seen so far this year!  I am starting to get more comfortable using my Copics!  I still turn to my prisma pencils for certain things, though!  Maybe Santa will bring me some new Copics for Christmas! ;)

We had a fun filled weekend!  I feel like I have probably gained 5 lbs., as we ate out ALOT this week!  Homemade fried chicken on Friday from my favorite little greasy spoon restaurant....Outback steak and lobster Saturday night....and finally....shrimp, steak and chicken fajitas that were AMAZING last night, after my nephew's birthday.  It was a spur of the moment decision, but super fun to go out with grandma and my BIL, SIL and nephews.  Six boys between the ages of 10 and 3-I bet they smiled(or cursed) as we walked out the door! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!
