Christmas in July

Oh, but wait... it is not July! Oh, well... you get my drift? I'm getting ready for Christmas! lol Actually, as I was browsing blogs yesterday, I saw a sketch I really, really liked but it was for a Christmas challenge. Coincidentally, I colored this image in November of last year but did not get the opportunity to use it. So I thought... 2 + 2 = 22! lol So here I am! 

There's an Anything Goes challenge at Fitztown Challenge Blog! It's Challenge #32! You know what that means? I can use the sketch AND the digi I have colored! Yay! Win, win! That's just the way I like it! Come join us! You know you want to! You can make ANYTHING because it is an ANYTHING GOES challenge! Awesome!

i {heart} card sketches w/a tWiSt no.62

I guess this is my weekend for cutting it close to the deadline because this is the THIRD post I'm writing all rushed... I do not like that! I need to make me a calendar, checklist, punch list... something... that will keep me on track! :-\ I get all befuddled when I'm in a rush and cannot speak my mind clearly. I'm sure I've got LOTS to say to myself... since I have proof... no one reads my blog... but that's a post for another day when I DO have time to chat...

For now, here is my project:
Here is a close up of the image:
These are the challenges I'm linking my project in to:
FTH stamps {blog}: April Free Stamp of the Month Challenge
A Gem of a Challenge: Challenge #117 "Spring is in the Air"
FTH stamps {blog}: i {heart} card sketches w/a tWiSt #62
(The option is "No Cards Allowed" so I made a tag.)
I am a follower of all these blogs and display badges and / or links here.
This is the sketch:
This is my recipe for the card:
Colored the image with Copic markers - 
Purples: V17, V15, V12
Greens: G14, G05, G03
Sky: Pebbles, Inc. chalks
I used Liquid Pearls in Buttercup for the stamens
All card stock, ribbon, brad and tag are from my stash
I inked the tag with Colorbox Queue Chalk Ink in Lavender
I outlined the blocks with Stickles Glitter Glue in Star Dust because Stickles makes everything pretty even prettier

OK, I've just checked and I'm down to three hours before the link-up closes so I am outta here.

I sure do appreciate you stopping by! :)
