I can hardly believe that it’s Wednesday already! The days and weeks are flying by and Christmas and the New Year are going to be here before I am even ready. By now I normally have the house decorated for the holidays and at least have some shopping done – but not this year! I suppose I will need to concentrate on the decorations this weekend since I do have a few things happening here at the house during the holidays. I must admit that I love to decorate for Christmas and can’t bear to take it down until after the first of the year. To me the house is always bare once the decorations are taken down and put away for the year. I am struggling this year though on how to put up a tree (on the floor) and keep the puppies away from it. I’ve thought about a table top tree but can’t find just the right size. A 4-1/2 foot table top tree just doesn’t get it for the main tree in the house – especially for someone who has put up at least three trees for the last few years. Oh well, I’m sure I’ll end up with the 7-foot tree on the floor and get after the pups every time they get near it!

One good thing however, is that I went through my recently made cards and realize that I’m getting close to having what I need for the Holidays. WOO HOO! AND, I can add one more in the box – I checked the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge this morning and what a fun layout. Roxie always comes up with something new and fun – I don’t know how she does it week after week. Anyhoo, here’s my card for today’s challenge.


I wanted to try this image from Gina K. Designs using Copic markers instead of water coloring as I did before. Even though I love to watercolor, the colors and shading achieved with the Copics makes the images take on a different look. For the snow, I painted on some Tulip White Puffy Paint and then sprinkled on some glitter (well, a whole lot of glitter) and set it aside to dry. I used some scraps of BasicGrey Figgy paper for the small panels (as if I don’t have enough scraps of this paper by now) and Always Artichoke for the panel underneath. The edges of all the panels (except the main back panel) were sponged with distress ink. Once I had the card completely assembled, I puffed the Tulip paint with a heat gun. Oh, and as you can tell, I flipped the sketch to fit the image.
