Hello and happy Wednesday!

It's time again for another challenge at the 7 Kids College Fund monthly challenge!

Well, of course...  I have to use my favorite Gorjuss Girls.  And this is called Purrrrrfect Love.

Merry Christmas!

Hello hello and happy Wednesday!

Can you believe that Christmas is just 11 days away?  Oh my goodness...  I just started Xmas shopping, LOL!

Anyways, It's challenge time over at the 7 Kids College Fund blog.  I'm sharing a card using the adorable Gorjuss Girl Oops-A-Daisy stamps from 7 Kids College Fund store.  I'm totally obsessed with them.  I have been collecting them for a while, and now the store actually sells them, 
I'm super excited!  


For my project, I decided to decorate a Very Merry Christmas kraft gift box from Wycinanka.  I started by adhering some Tim Holtz tissue tape on the box with some matte medium.  Then I paint the kraft box with gesso, then with Prima Art Alchemy Acrylic Palint in Metallique light patina.  Then I added hint of purple by using Distress Crayon in Seedless Preserve.  I also added some fun details with Wycinanka chipboards (which decorated with stickers and Nuvo Crystal Drop in white) and some snowflakes.  For the Gorjuss Girl, I colored her with Copic Markers. 


So, why not and come join the FUN for a chance to WIN SOME GOODIES!
Can't wait to see your creations!
