Happy Holidays with Krista Smith

Hey all, glad you could come and visit during this busy time...I have the most wonderful image that was offered some time ago from a new club i managed to find...
Yes it's a Krista Smith image...

I'm really happy on how this one turned out. I think my shading went well and her hair has a little more depth than what i usually do. I managed to match up my colours to my papers and added a few dies. Used promarkers and did a little scribble around the image for something different. Very simple design but turned out good. Happy Holidays all...

Merry HO HO ....with Simply Betty

Hey i glad to say I'm FINALLY finished shopping...WHEW is all i can say.
I was even able to squeeze in a quick post.
Here i have a super adorable Simply Betty image that i just happened to get for free to enter her Facebook Challenge. I just love this style.
I had rotten luck with the hair and realized i should have left it black...but no going back now. Let's have a look..

Coloured with Promarkers and went with some non traditional colours...I just love this combo. Added a smash paper clip that is just perfect for Christmas cards and a little bling. Hope you all like and i extend my sincere holiday wishes. And may you all have a save and happy new year...

Thank you goes a long way with a little CANDI, right?
This card was made for a coworker who supplies me with reading material throughout the year. Each year i give back with a gift card from her favourite book store and add a handmade card...Let's have a look.
 I just love using this CANDI, i colour it up with my promarkers to match my image colours and it even leaves that shimmery look. I used the icing sugar CANDI and you can find it HERE! Image is a freebie from Dulemba colouring page Tuesdays...

Thanks for dropping by and will see you in the new year...Merry Christmas everyone and have a safe holiday season..

Let's colour on Kraft paper...try it, you will love the results. This challenge was chosen by Jen
And the prize up for grabs is from Joanna Sheen

Just remember to colour on Kraft and use your Letraset products...

Ok...i was scared out of my tree with this challenge. Something I've never done and was worried how it would turn out. Funny enough, the colour went down great and it didn't worst nightmare... I did have to layer my colour a couple time to get the look i wanted but i think she turned out great.. This is a Simply Sassy image and the creator was none other than Krista Smith...i purchased her way before her digi's came out..i just fell in love with this image. OMG!!! i said OMG!!! as i was linking up this project you can now get this in digi!!!! 

I finished it up using my new CANDI and some Trendy Twine that i love. A simple sentiment and it's all she wrote...
