Cozy Holiday Wishes with a New Challenge at Get Creative

First, I would like to let you know that I have had to step-down from all of my Design Team Posts as my eye issues have gotten worse. I have Ocular Myasthenia Gravis and I was in the ER last weekend due to issues and the pressure and pain are still there. It has been hard to do my projects, remark on posts even with having increased my font size to 150 percent but it still hurts to read and craft. It was with a heavy heart I needed to make the decision to step down at this time.

With that being said, here is my last and final post for Get Creative and I want to welcome to the new challenge at Get Creative!!! This is a Challenge Blog with this week's challenge theme - fantasy with the fabulous sponsor Nikki Burnette.

I fell in love with her mermaid stamp, Edeline and the whole time as I was coloring her and I couldn't decide what she should be card-wise. But after a consultation with the Stickles Fairy and a beautiful coordinating piece of paper from my stash, yes, you guessed it - she became a Christmas card!!!!

  • card measures 5.5 x 7 inches using Recollections cardstock
  • background is from my stash
  • Edeline is colored with Copic R20, Prisma Markers, Prisma Colored Pencils, Whisper Markers, gel pen accents and of course Stickles
  • fussy cut part of my image and chalked a background on the remainder 
  • sentiment, "Sending Cozy Holiday Wishes your way " had been from Create with TLC  Winter Club 2015 was chalked around the edges 
  • lace beading trim from my stash with Darice satin edged organza ribbon and bow
  • sentiment, "The Magic of Christmas never ends and it's greatest of gifts are family and friends" had been from Create with TLC  Winter Club 2015 was chalked around the edges and mounted on scraps matching the front of card
