Twilight Christmas :)

Happy Thursday!!  Only one more day till the weekend!!  Woot woot!
I'd like to welcome all of my new followers, both on GFC and Facebook!  I'm so glad you are here!  I hope you will stick around and enjoy the fun items I share with you here :)

I wanted to show off 2 cards today.
This first one popped into my head right after I purchased the image yesterday and I got right to work on it...though I had to reprint the image and try to color it again as the first round didn't set well with me :)

Now I try not to be obsessed with these movies...but I do get a little excited at the thought of watching them...just ask my hubby :)  So when I found my sentiment, it sort of seemed perfect to go with the image...there are always moments where I feel this way.
This image is My Twilight Mama from Saturated Canary.  Honestly, I'm surprised it took me this long to purchase this image...I love it so much!  And it cracks me up...the over excited mom with the totally embarrassed many times will you see this once the last movie comes out in a few weeks?  Lol...

I've colored the image in with my colored pencils...though I'm starting to get the itch to upgrade to pencils keep breaking and won't sharpen very well and it's just ticking me off...I might just have to make the leap into markers :)

I distressed all the edges with my scissors, and then printed off the sentiment and scallop cut around it.  Pretty simple, but I love it :)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
    Challenges 4 Everybody #5-Anything Goes
    One Stitch at a Time #136-Use a Digi
    One Stop Craft #201-Anything Goes
    Sketch Sunday #170

My next card is geared toward the holidays/coming winter.  I purchased this image a few weeks ago after seeing a few adorable cards featuring I had to use it :)
I love light blue...I never seem to have enough paper of that color :)
Anyhow, I colored in my image (Inky Critters from Tiddly Inks) and then scallop cut around it.  Wrapped a few ribbons around and behind the image and then printed and flagged a sentiment under the bow.
The snowflakes are punched out and then covered in light blue stickles.  I added a clear gem to the centers as well.

I like that each square can be used individually, or all of them the whole thing diversity and lots of options for layouts :)
