Since I was a slacker very busy crafter this month I forgot to giveaway some Christmas stamps from About Art Accents so the totally awesome, completely understanding owner said “go ahead Lindsay, post the giveaway and we will give away a surprise bundle of goodies” since my readers will need Christmas stamps in a week like a hole in the head. I like surprises and if you have a look at the About Art Accents website I’m sure you will love whatever the prize is. Just leave a comment and you are entered to win, it’s as easy as that! I’ll pick a winner next weekend!

I had a request for a Copic coloring tutorial and as you know I mix and match supplies so here you have an alcohol marker tutorial using Copics, Promarkers and Prismacolors. Look, they all play nice together, so you can try a marker or two from different brands and see what you like best and you won’t have wasted and money because they can be used together. The angel stamp I used can be found here and it is on sale for $4.90 (regular price $7). The papers I used to make the final card can be found at Oriental Trading Company.

Sometimes I forget how much I love coloring with markers. A tip is to stamp out a bunch of images and keep them in a bag with your markers (clear cosmetic bags are great for this) and you can take them with you to color in front of the TV, on trips, or wherever you might be. It is an easily portable project and the more you color the better you get!  That’s it for me tonight, leave a comment for a chance to win some wonderful non Christmas stamps from About Art Accents and til next time happy crafting!

We drank from mason jars and it was good.

Happy Christmas! We had a nice time last night having family here for Christmas eve. Hubby’s soup, lasagna and eggs were a hit and people even liked my chili and rolls (with the disclaimer that I made it and it was vegan!) It was good to be together. :) Today the kids are tearing around with their toys and soon we will go  ‘over the river and through the woods’  to my parents house and have Christmas dinner with them. I hope you have a wonderful day (whether you celebrate Christmas or not) and I want you to know how much I appreciate you visiting my blog and all of the lovely comments you leave. Here is this years Christmas card from us, I did not send as many out as I usually do but this way I can share it at least.
