Guest Designer over at The Outlawz

Hello and happy Thursday crafty peeps!
It feels a little bit like old times writing up a post for the Twisted Thursday Anything Goes challenge over at The Outlawz.
My friend Patricia was so kind to ask if I’d like to be a guest designer for their snowflake theme this week, and I just couldn’t refuse. I miss this wonderful group of talented peeps, and the honor of having my work out there in a special place other than my little ole blog makes me feel so special.
So today, I have for you my one and only Copic marker Christmas card. I’ve not been able to craft very much for the past 3 months due to poor health. Indeed it isn’t my best work, but a Christmas card nonetheless!

I totally forgot to put my snowflake on it, so please forgive me. If you look close enough you'll see that I used some stickles to create the look of falling snow around the image, so this will have to do, lol :)
This adorable digital image is Christmas Lights by Stitchy Bear.

I printed the image on Neenah cardstock and coloured it with my Copic Markers. I tried to make the lights look real by using glossy accents to give them clear dimension.

That’s all I have for you peeps, except to tell you to head on over to the Twisted Thursday Challenge over at the Outlawz so you can see the extremely talented design team and their awesome take on this week’s snowflake theme challenge. Talk about inspiration or what!

Thanks Patricia for the honor of being a guest designer this week, and thanks crafty peeps for stopping by my blog. Hopefully I will have something to post for you before too long.
Joyous holidays start with loving hearts and a happy home. I wish you all a wonderful start to the season’s festivities.  May the blessings of peace, hope and love be your gifts this Christmastime and throughout this coming new year.
