Celebration...We're gonna celebrate and have a good time...

YAY! I snuck in some stamping time tonight after doing some Christmas shopping. I knew I wanted to make a card using Cindy's sketch challenge on the MFT Forum (My Favorite Things), and also for Celebrating MFT Day. I picked out this Tres Jolie paper by My Mind's Eye and got my color scheme from that.

The main image is from Meet Me at the Cafe, and it's stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black on Watercolor paper, then watercolored with reinkers and my Niji Waterbrushes. The table and glasses are coated with Diamond Glaze (same as Crystal Effects) to make them shine.

Then I pulled out my new Heartfelt Phrases from Verve Visual and punched out "you're on my mind" with my Word Window Punch in Soft Sky and sponged the edges to make it stand out.

Well, it's late here, I just wanted to get this posted before I go back into Christmas Oblivion. Going to see Santa tomorrow night, and the guy said the wait will be from 3-4 hours. GEEZ. Wish me luck...I'll be packing snacks.

Stamps: Meet Me at the Cafe (MFT), Heartfelt Phrases (Verve Visual)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, Watercolor Paper, Tres Jolie MME
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Diamond Glaze, May Arts Ribbon, Jumbo Sponge Dauber, Word Window Punch, Aquapainter & Reinkers

Holy cow! 3-4 hours just to see Santa? Is it really worth it? LOL! Love the colors and paper you chose. I could go for a relaxing drink in a cozy little cafe right about now! :)
