Phindy's Place Friday - Christmas in May

Good morning, it's Friday!  Oh Yeah, I have been waiting for this day since Monday!  Sad, I know, but true!  Our weather is so crazy and miserable here, the weeks have been plain nuts and I'm ready to go down into my craft room and NEVER leave!  Seriously,  I get a little bit of peace when I am down there, at least when I am down there by myself, and I am in the mood for peace!  And, speaking of peace, our challenge over at Phindy's Place is a Christmas challenge.  Yup, you read that correctly, we are celebrating Christmas in May over at Phindy's Place.  A nice change up from all of those spring projects and Christams is the time of year for joy and peace.

For my project this week I used the Phindy's Place image, Kitty Snuggle.  I've always loved this one and decided to color her using mostly red copics.

Materials I Used for my Project:
Copic Markers - R27, R24, R22, R21, C7, C5, C3, C1, E11, E01, E000, E0000
MS Snowflake border punch, large snowflake punch and small snowflake punch
White gel pen
Spellbinder's large circle and scalloped circle dies
SU Pixie Pink stamp pad
Crystal Stickles

Here's a close up of my colored image.

For my project today I used a sketch from the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge blog and I am going to enter my card into their challenge for this week.  Here's what the original sketch looked like before I made it into my card.

Well, now it's your turn to make your Christmas inspired projects.  You can always get a jump start on those Christmas projects and enter our challenge while you are.  There's plenty of inspiration by the other Phindy's Place DT members!
So glad you decided to stop by today,
