We Wish You a Merry Christmas......

Hello Bloggie friends. I am happy to announce that I had a productive weekend in terms for cards! Mostly because I had men here putting up my backsplash in my kitchen, so of course I had to stay out of their way.....which put me into my craft room for the day!   So, I got a few knocked out.....I'm not going to lie, I was struggling for a while there. My coloring was giving me fits but I can definitely see it coming back around.   A few days ago I bought a few of Mo Mannings digis. Mo always has the cutest images!!!  I loved all the little carolers and this lamp post is adorable!! I printed out a few of those they can go with so many things.

This weeks challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil is for folds. I have been wanting to try one of these folded cards and never got around to it, so I thought this would be a pefect opportunity.

I love how she came out. I kept wanting to make the background darker and darker, but I finally stopped. I was so afraid of screwing it up, but I may grab another image and play some more with the background. I thought it would be neat to make it dark (like night time) and have spots of lights coming through, like a village is in the background.  Maybe next image!

I colored this with Copic markers and the papers are Basic Grey. I wish I could tell you where I got the tutorial on how to cut the card but I wrote it down sometime ago and didn't note it! Sorry!

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:

This is just beautiful, Tracy! I haven't noticed that your coloring has been suffering at all. Even if you're struggling, I think they are coming out beautifully. I believe this is called a step-fold card and I know Splitcoast has tutes on it. I'm sure there are some on You Tube too.
