It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas!
OK, you caught me. It's July and it has been really hot here in North Carolina, but why don't we cool things down a bit with some wonderful Christmas inspiration from Karen's Doodles. This week the US team is challenging you to get started with your Christmas cards.
For my card, I used Bigsby Swinging Lights. I colored him with copics, and cut and colored two sets of the lights - and added Liquid Glass to make them shiny. Then, I decided it just would not look Christmasy without glitter. So, I colored my entire background with a Zig glue pen, and added Martha Stewart ultrafine glitter.
If I keep working on my Christmas cards, maybe I will have enough finished in time for Christmas!
