Art, Christmas, and Distressing

Good morning, peeps - woke up with a headache today, not a fun way to start the day.  :(  AND we are waiting for a snowstorm - which absolutely cracks me up.  We had a big snowstorm on Halloween and then we didn't get hardly any snow at all for the rest of the Winter.  Now we're going to get a half foot.  Too funny.  I'll take the snow day, though!  I got me some new Dilly Beans images that are just screaming to be colored!  :)

We have a new challenge for you over at:

Our sponsor this week is The Greeting Farm, and the prize is the image I used to create my ATC with, Toby the Painter.  Come play along with us!

Next - this is for the:

I like the idea of making some Christmas cards throughout the year, maybe then I won't be so overwhelmed in November/December!  I used cardstock, ribbon, button, and some retired DP from Stampin' Up!  My Sassy Studio image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, and the sentiment is from TLC.

And last for today - this is for the:

I had fun making this cute card - I used Cheeky Shooter from The Greeting Farm (an actual rubber stamp - GASP! LOL), I stamped her in dark brown ink to match the DP - which is from My Mind's Eye, and I only colored her scarf, left the rest uncolored.  I added some vintage brads and spritzed the whole thing with Log Cabin Smooch Spritz and dragged the image through a dark brown ink pad.

Have a good day, my friends.  Thanks for leaving me such nice comments, I really enjoy each and every one of them.  xoxo   Peace.
