Today we are featuring "Bells on Bobtail and Brick Wall" My card here is Bells on Bobtails, I colored with copic's and Prisma pencils. I sponged in the BG with SU going gray, masked off for the snow banks and stamped the BG trees (from "A Walk in the Woods" also by MFP. Card stock is by MFP.




For this card I used "Brick Wall" and I colored with copic's,DP is Basic Grey. This set isn't a Christmas set but I'm trying to get in as many as I can. The sentiment is from another newly released set "Musical Holiday" and you will samples for that set on Friday. Card stock and gold Smooch is from MFP. I used nestabilities Labels thirteen and went around the edge with the Smooch.


You will love the wonderful creations from the rest of the team !
