A little Christmas in October

A very happy Saturday to you is a very special weekend in our household as my oldest Grand-daughter turns 16 tomorrow, however we had her party last night and I have to say it is one of the best parties I have ever been to.  My daughter-in-law, myself and her other grandma had so much fun making this such a special day for her...  This is a picture of her and her boyfriend "Julian" and he did get her this beautiful Tiara for her birthday and this is my son and my wonderful daughter-in-law Kim
 Okay enough of the family and on to the reason you are here.....yep you guessed it right it's time for another challenge over at the CMC Challenge group and this time we would like to see you use those copics and make it look like you colored with distress inks......the winner of this challenge will get to choose 3 stamps from Magnolia-licious and a pack of cryogen white paper which is my favorite paper to color by far.  You will also be entered into the monthly drawing for the shopping spree and who does not want some more copics or refills!
For my card I have used "Unwrapped Tilda" and she is in stock at Magnolia-licious...she can be used for so many different occasions. If you would like learn how to color to in the distress style, Suzanne has 4 great videos on You Tube showing you how here is the link for video #1.  My DP's are Basic Grey Eskimo kisses, solid card stock from my stash.  The cute little "Banner Pennant" is from Whimsy Stamps, I just love it and have seen so many cute cards with it used from my good friend Sharon... thanks Chickie !  Used the new MS border punch that embosses also.  I added a little stickles to her hair ribbon and the snow flakes.

Challenges :

Simon Says - anything goes
Paper Shelter - for the girls

That's it for me have a great weekend !

Hi Charlene. This is so cute and your coloring is awesome. I've been though all the videos and I still can't get it to look right. Think I just need to practice more. Found you at CMC and so glad I did. "Hugs" Carol
