December Kit Kat Challenge

Good morning! Early morning here, because here I am posting at 12:20 a.m.! I've got lots to do tomorrow, and I don't trust blogger to follow through with my scheduled post, so I though I'd go ahead and get it done, so I'll know it's done. KWIM? Anywho... this little lovely was sent to me and the rest of the Kit Kats by the fabulous Catherine. This Victoria Case image is so sweet!! I colored her up with my SU inks and a blender pen. The sketch is from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #51. I just found Mercy's blog, and WOAH, Nellie!! There's some fabulous inspiration going on over there!! I hope to get to play along on a regular basis!!


In addition to the adorable image, Miss Catherine sent along that gorgeous Basic Grey DP, the beautiful satin ribbon, and the pretty red fiber. I think I used everything she sent with the exception of a piece of yarn, which I would have used if I could have found a place for it!! :-D
It doesn't show up very well in the photo, but the snow and snowflakes have dazzling diamonds on them. The poinsettias have flower soft in the centers, and the accent highlighting was done with a white gel pen. My Martha Stewart punches gave me that pretty loopy border and the snowflakes, and rhinestones finished off the bling for this card. I hope you like it as much as I do! I'm so happy with this one!!!! I can't wait to see what the rest of the girls have in store for us, so please follow the links to their blogs, and check it out!!!!
Thanks for stopping by today, and have a glorious day!!! Please come back soon, because I look forward to each and every visit!! May God bless and keep you today and always!
Love ya,
