Recipe#57 O Christmas Tree

Hi All,
I hope your week has gone well:-) I am having a tooth pulled today as I have been having problems with it, so my weekend may not be as great as some of you, hehe
This weeks Challenge for Crafts 4 Eternity is to add a tree to the sketch below:-) I dug out an Ollyfant stamp set I purchased last year and it worked perfectly for this sketch and challenge!
I added a sentiment I made on the computer, and punched it with SU's oval punch and oval scallop punch. I paper pieced the ribbons for the tree, used SU design paper, and colored the image with Copic markers. There are hints of ultra fine glitter here and there for some sparkle. I cut the little girl out and used pop dots to place her in front of the tree, and I chalked the background with a new pan pastel pale blue color! PTI cs was used and some flat back pearls, I also added a bit of distressing to the papers.
The Prize this week is an adorable snowman that is pictured on crafts 4 Eternity's blog ,Please go and see what the other DT members came up with this week:-) Here's wishing everyone a great weekend!

I used a Penny Black stamp I have owned for awhile and haven't been able to use him much:-) so I stamped him and cut him out! I distressed a bit of the CS around the image,

White Christmas: C4E Recipe #55

Hi All,
This week It's a theme of "White christmas" and to use the color white.....Well I tried really hard and I did use white card stock on the background and I did add a white flower and white pearls:-) so I hope that counts, because these snow people needed Christmas colors in them to be "happy"
I added a pretty flower and some crystals from wild orchid crafts, a few red flat back pearls to look like berries with my MS leaf punch....The papers are from my Cricut Imagine which I am loving what I can do with it, and I added Sea Glass tattered Angels to the white circle behind the snow peopleFor the Challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity this week we are looking for the sketch above, add the color white, and a Christmas theme, The sponsor this week is by Crafty Sentiments. Please go look at all the DT cards:-) wonderful ideas! My image is from Crafty Sentiments and I think Its adorable and I had fun playing this week with it
I colored the image with Copic markers and added glitter here and there. The circle and scalloped circle were done on the cricut machine.
Have a great weekend everyone

All That Glitters: C4E Recipe #54

This week at Crafts 4 Eternity the challenge is:
1. Use the sketch
2. include some glitter
I used my cricut Imagine, to cut the shapes and I even printed the back oval scalloped paper with the cricut, the other papers are Basic Grey. card stock was bazzill around the image and Basic grey pieces.I added a piece of black ribbon from my ribbon stash, and a white paper dot covered in my favorite ultra fine glitter from SU. I added spots of the glitter on the little girls wings and Spica glitter pens on the horn, hearts, and halo. I used Copic markers for the coloring. And just a note... I don't know what happened but when I originally looked at the sketch on my computer, It appeared to be oval? I have no clue what I did but I made my oval shape and now as I uploaded the image of the sketch it appears as a circle:-) It was probably me, hehe but I swear I thought it was oval, Life would have been much easier if I had known it was a circle:-) I sat with the cricut for at least an hour trying to get a large enough oval shape that would fit my image, hehe
The Image is an old Penny Black stamp that I have just needed to have:-)
Here's to a wonderful weekend ahead.
