Snow Birds!!

Hiya everybody! Only 16 more days until Christmas---eEEEEEKKKK! So much to do....and not enough time, dontcha' wish there was just one more week in December! I know I'll get everything done but wheww, it's gonna be close!! We're going to New York City the weekend before Christmas for 3 days with the kids. I love the city at Xmastime and seeing the store windows all done up, ice-skating in Central Park & we're going to see the Christmas Show w/ the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall---I can't wait!! This will be my son's first trip to NYC so he's super excited!

I'm also sooooooooo excited to announce that I WILL be at CHA in January--yippee!! I've booked my flight and hotel out in California and this will be my first time out to the West Coast. I will be taking a few hours while I'm there to visit the beach just to touch the Pacific Ocean for the first time (who knows when I'll ever get out there again, lol)! I'm flying in with my friend Marti on Friday & leaving on Wednesday---ahhh, no kids or hubby, just stamping friends & lotsa goodies!! Not to mention that my hotel is across the street from Disneyland (might have to visit Mickey)!! I'll be blogging about it while I'm away so you'll get to see all the goodies too!

If you haven't entered for my Rubber Romance blog candy you have until Sunday, December 14th to do so---you can read all the details on THIS POST!!
Onto my card for the day! This uses one of the Christmas Trees from Karen Lockhart called "Snow Tree with Birds"--all of her trees are so elegant and fun to color! I paired it up with some of the yummy holiday dp & cs from SU. I colored the tree with Copics and then added liquid applique to the snow with a nice coating of diamond stickles on top. I'm not sure what company the brad elements are from (threw out the packaging) but I just love their vintage look along with the ghost snowflake from Making Memories (FaLaLa). If you're looking for more Lockhart stamps, make sure and stop by Susana's Custom Art & Card Design for a great selection.

I'm also running a contest on the Paper Craft Planet "Fans of Karen Lockhart" site this week--the theme is ornaments. Stop by to find out all the details and see what you can win!!

Until tomorrow....


Copics Used: G99, G94, R29, R22, BG10, BG72, BG75
