Joyful

Hi All!  How's it going?  I've been doing pretty good, just busy as usual :)  I swear it seems like the holiday season has just crept right up on me so I've been feeling the need to kick my butt in gear and get some holiday cards done.  And I don't know about you but when I start seeing the holiday releases at all the stamp companies it doesn't matter how many stamps I already have I get this overwhelming feeling that I can't possibly get any of my Christmas cards done with out new stuff- I think it's a symptom of this craft addiction- and I've conveniently convinced myself that you all do the same thing so at least I'm not alone- please take pity and don't burst my pretty little bubble if that's not true, lol!  So speaking of new stamps I picked up this gorgeous digi Angel Kaylee from the Some Odd Girl shop a few days ago and couldn't wait to color her up.  Now you'll have to let me know what you think because I tried something a little different and used color in my shading...I've seen the designer of the Some Odd Girl stamps Kristy do this, and even though I'm no where near as good at coloring as her, I couldn't resist trying it out.  Even with the color in the shading my image turned out a lot less saturated than what I normally do so as a result my card is a lot softer and more simple than what I've been doing lately but it's nice to switch it up sometimes.  I hope you enjoy!

Love this! I like how you let the image shine with the neutral background. I think I'm going to have to buy some of those Tim Holtz metal pieces! Oh and you know I do the same thing with stamps! I have Christmas stamps I haven't used yet but I have to have the new shiny ones!
