Deck the halls

Good morning!

There is a new challenge over at Some Odd Girl today and this time we want to see you create an easel card. Go to town with this and have fun, do what ever you like just so long as it is standing at attention on an easel card base. :)

Now, you know that I don't make a lot of fancy folding cards, but the easel format isn't so bad (even if I did waste an entire 12x12 sheet of cardstock by scoring the folds wrong... twice, LOL). I chose Tree Trimming Kaylee because I thought she would look really nice with the traditional red and green Christmas color combo that I wanted to use and then I just started piling on the goodies. I also used this Kaylee for a Strawberry Blond hair coloring video a week or so ago which you can find here and here or on the Color Me Copic blog. :)

Ok, now it's you're turn to play along and you've got until December 13th to enter an easel card for a chance at winning a fab prize and while you don't have to use a SOG image to qualify, you do get an extra name in the hat come drawing time if you do.

Good luck!

I love your cards and coloring tutorials! Can you make a video showing the rest of the coloring for the snow shoveling girl that you did a video on the dark red hair coloring? I think I will buy this stamp for a card for my mom since the hair color you did was a perfect match for her and I have been trying to get that! Thanks for all your videos! They and you are terrific!
