Do Not Open 'Til Christmas

Good Monday morning! It's your friendly reminder that Christmas is just around the corner...and I know it's hard to believe since the sun is shining brightly, temperatures are high, and the water is so cool and inviting. I've noticed that some of you have been creating cards for Christmas at that is awesome!! So, how many of you have gotten at least 5 done?
My card for this week's Christmas Stampin' All Year Long is based on a sketch created by our talented Maria. I've actually turned the sketch to the side. You can view the sketch HERE.
I've finally gotten a chance to use one of the many stamps that have never seen an inkpad before. This is a stamp from Hanna Stamps, it comes with all kinds of accessories and can be used for birthdays too.
I hope you will be able to join us for the challenge this week, we'd love to see your creation! Click HERE to see what the rest of the design team has created.
This weekend I attended a gathering for local crafters, mainly for local bloggers and have pictures to share with you. It was so much fun meeting everyone outside of their blogs, and the funny thing is that you feel like you've known them longer than they have started their blogs. =)
I was also able to do a copic tutorial in person for everyone there and I think it was pretty successful and will probably post that here.
Since most of the ladies are asking about what kinds of copics I use when coloring my images I thought I should post that at the end. Please let me know if you think this would be helpful or not.
Thank you all for your very sweet comments, each and everyone of them makes me smile!

Maria said...

Awesome job on your card, Jodi! You did fabulous following the that you turned it sidewards. I love that Hanna image. ..been wanting to get that set for a long time now.

How fun to meet all the gals. ..are they similar to their personalitites from what you see on their blogs. In person, I think I'm more chatty when I get to know someone better. I'm not very bubbly at first but I can be funny. . .well, that's what people say. LOL!

Keep up the great work on your Christmas card. . .great coloring as always!
