Wintery Fun - 7 Kids Blog Hop

Hi everyone and Happy Saturday! :)  It's been a crazy, hectic week but I'm so glad the weekend is here :)  I'm looking forward to relaxing, crafting, and spending fun time with my wonderful little family :)  I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  Today's post is a very special post.  The DT for 7 Kids College Fund is having a blog hop today.  Let's get to it :)
 
Welcome to the 7 KIDS Preview of Christmas hop! You are going to find some really great projects using some really beautiful stamps and products from the store! For those of you who haven't started your Christmas cards, this is a great opportunity for some 7 KIDS inspiration. The store is stocked with lots of images and papers Don’t forget we have many products that will help you with your Christmas gifts.
 
Today we have our new DT members with us and some very special guest designers who have joined us for our Christmas Hop. Here's my project:
 
 
 
For my card today, I just had to ink up this adorable Magnolia image.  She's called Tilda with Peanut and she was so fun to color.  I inked her up with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and stamped her onto Copic XPress Blending Card.  I of course colored my image with Copic Markers.  Here are the colors I used:
 
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Pinks: RV000, R81, R83, R85, R89
Blues: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
Mouse: W2, W4, W6
Shoes: E41, E42, E43, E44, E47
 
I created my card base out of SU cardstock.  My DP is from last year's 6x6 paper pack from Recollections (Michael's brand).  I added a bow and a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts (I always use Scor Tape to adhere my bows and flowers, it works perfectly every time).  The snowflakes are from Michael's (they are just puffy foam stickers, you can get a huge pack for $2).  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps
