Twinkles Boo...

'Twinkles Boo' was provided by Lacey Sunshine Stamps

I love this sweet image... reminds me of Christmases past.  I was one who could not sleep on Christmas eve.  Mom would give me books to read - but about 3am I would start going into their bedroom... "Is it time yet?"  "Can we get up yet?"  I knew better than to go out to the tree and spoil everything.  My parents would give up around 6am and I would finally get to go wake my brothers.  The tradition holds - to this day I call {time has slipped a bit to 7am} and wake my brothers long distance - "It's time!!!!!"  They hate that!  But they do laugh... a little.
This is my DT card for Aud Sentiments' current challenge... I would love for you to see some of the incredible art work my teamies have created with Heather Valentin's drawings.  She is one of my favorite digital artists and I tell you, this team showcased them so beautifully and creatively!  While you are there - you can enter up to three projects in the Anything Goes Challenge!

This is my first attempt at shading a nose... have been watching some of the great videos out there right now!  Hmmmm.  Need more practice.  
So here is the simple recipe:

PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the images; DP is from Basic Grey's 'Nordic Holidays'; the mats are from stash. Layers are assembled using foam tape to elevate the focal panel and then the sentiment on a third level.

  7. Hello Ginny...I've been wanting to come here sooner but been so busy. I just want to thank you for the rather detailed, sweet and flattering comments you left in my Blog regarding those CAS cards I made...You surely made me laugh and I do hope you make many friends and family happy when you make them a box of cards. And yes, I am going to be checking that note in the back stating "inspired by Jo Ann." You are too funny, girl! Anyway, while I am here, just want to tell you how cute this card is. Love the two different coloring for the image's jammies and the bright colored theme. The border stamp help neutralize the bold colors and such a pretty addition. Hugs and blessing, my friend and talk to you soon.
