Deck the Halls

Happy Monday! Did you have a great weekend! I had a very creative, fun, relaxing weekend with a bunch of great ladies! It was nice to put a face with a name of so many people I "see" online daily! I do have to admit I'm very tired though - I actually went to bed but I know of a few that barely slept the two days we were there! Saturday night I just couldn't bring myself to go to bed. In my mind, if I went to bed then I knew the weekend was over. I ended up staying up till 4am! Then I couldn't fall asleep cause I was nervous that I'd be too tired to drive home in the morning - ummmm maybe I should have thought about that BEFORE 4AM! Anyway...

It's Monday so time for challenge #9 from the Stampin All Year Long blog. Remember this post? That particular Monday we had to create a card without using a sketch. Then our readers voted on which card they liked the best so Maria could then form a sketch for us to use in this weeks Challenge. The winning sketch (which is based off Rachel's card) is a great one! I am so going to be using this one again.

The size of my card is 5x7 and I used a Stampendous stamp for the image. I just love this little furball! I'm not sure about the DP as I've had it for quite awhile (like at least 2+ years!). I colored the image with my Copics. Here is a close up.

It was a fun image to color! I don't actually own this stamp - I got this image from a friend on another Yahoo group I'm on. I may have to add him to my collection though (if I can find it!).

Remember to visit the other team members blogs for their creations using the sketch. You can see the links on my sidebar.

Here's hoping I've gotten some MUCH needed rest...I have some projects I'm just dying to try!! Thanks so much for looking!
