We want to remind you:
Just two more days to get into our special HOLIDAY BLITZ - ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE!! We have a huge list of Sponsors who are all set to give away some amazing prize packages to lots of our lucky players!!

and... Loves Rubberstamps is giving away a $50.00 Gift Voucher!

Today I am using Tiddly Inks - Hang in there.  She is reminding us all that the holly-days won't last forever and Spring is on it's way, lol.  I had to try out something different with my Copic Markers.  I used a S.U. aqua-painter and put blending solution in it, colored BG13 on some hard plastic and picked it up with the blending solution for my background.  I did this before I colored the image.  I was reading about this on Make it Crafty blog.  So I am going to keep doing this on my backgrounds until I feel like I have mastered it, lol.  It's been a while since I've used the Aqua Painter, so I forgot all my tricks to get the paintbrush just right, lol.  But it will come back to me. 
I love this adorable image and I know I will be using her again.  I love how happy she is and it reminds me that seeing the world through the eyes of a child is the best way to view it. 
How was every one's Christmas?  Did you have a great time?  Are you glad it's over?  Any plans for New Years?  I have to work this weekend but then I have the rest of the week off and I plan on cleaning this place up!  lol.  Christmas was wonderful for the boys.  They were excited and had a great time.  They loved everything they got.  The next day  was Jeep's real birthday.  So we had a friend come over and we took the boys down to Chuck-E-Cheese and let them play games and ordered pizza.  Unfortunately Jeep ate too much pizza and ended up with a stomach ache..... but he felt fine the next day.  His big party will be in the middle of January, where we will have 10 kids over for laser tag in the backyard.  There is a place in town where we can rent them and a commando for two hours, lol.  Should be lots of fun. 
So once again, I want to remind you about our special HOLIDAY BLITZ - ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE!! We have a huge list of Sponsors who are all set to give away some amazing prize packages to lots of our lucky players!!   Head on over to the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog and check out all the sponsors and prizes!    You will also want to check out the NEW ITEMS Laura has in her store!   You know, just so you can mentally spend the gift voucher, lol. 
Thanks for Hopping along with us!

This is so cute. Love the sentiment along with her hanging upside down! I like the choice of papers you used together. I'm not good at that.

How cute! I really love the background technique! I will have to give that a try one of these days! I really love the colors that you chose! I wish Spring would hurry up...we have been in a deep freeze the last few days ;( It was 52 degrees one day...then 5 degrees with snow and wind making the temp feel like -26 ...really Mr. Weatherman!? LOL!
