It's Friday!!!

I will be heading to San Angelo, TX this evening with my BFF Crystial to go to one of her grandson's (Hi Jack!) birthday party. The party will be on Sat. then we will be going shopping!! I love going to San Angelo, the old downtown area has a lot of little boutiques and some great places to eat. Fun, fun, fun!!!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Christmas Challenge {with sketches}
DP2 Challenge -Flowers, flutters, fairies, fancy folds

This is a Mo Manning digital stamp "I Even Love the Box" from Mo's Digital Pencil. She is colored on Cryogen cs.

I used this same image before but colored it as a little boy.  This is one of my favorite Christmas images and it will probably find its way on to some of my Christmas cards this year.

The card base is SU Pink Passion that I stamped all over using Versamark ink and an old SU Merry Christmas greeting from A Greeting for All Reasons. Then I used Perfect Pearls in Perfect Gold over the stamped areas. I also did the holly on the Gable Green cs the same way, the holly is from the same stamp set.  The little girl was hand cut and pop dotted onto the gold paper (from my stash) then adhered to the Gable Green cs. This was then pop dotted with thinner pop dots to the card base.

The large rose and rose leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the smaller cream roses are Prima. I added Gold Lame Smooch ink to the edges of all of the roses.
All of the cut outs are Spellbinder Nestabilities in the Big Scalloped Ovals. The ribbon is from my stash, some I picked up at Walmart several years ago.
She was colored with Copics. Skin E00, E11, R20, mouth R83; pajamas R81, R83, G20, G21; box E31, E34, E35; hat R35, R37, R39, C00, C1; bow Y00, Y11, Y15, Y23, YR23, YR24; paper C00, C1, R27; tag G28, E41; baby is written over with Spica Pink.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I know mine will be wonderful a weekend with a pool, a hot tub, plenty of shopping and no husbands. Yeahhhhhh!
