OWH World Card Making DAY 2012 BLOG HOP!!!

I tried and tried to grab the "code" but I couldn't get it to work. ((Banging head on desk))  Sorry!!!  You are in the right place, my blog is part of the OWH WCD Blog Hop! Here is the link to go back to the beginning, if you need it! http://operationwritehome.org/starsandstamps



Let's have some fun ladies!!!!


HAPPY WCD!!! Greetings from PHOENIX, ARIZONA!!! Thanks for dropping in for a few! I hope you are finding some nice inspiration along the way! I decided to do the Blog Hop in hopes it would give me some mojo that I somehow lost about a month ago...it worked! I forgot how it feels to flip thru paper and run my fingers thru a big jar of buttons and brads.  I even cut some paper I have been hoarding FOREVER!!! :)  I'm living on the dangerous side!
 
 I used Sketch #21 from the Stars and Strips Sketches. But I flipped it on it's side!  I dusted off my copic markers and gave it a whirl. I am not a Copic-ista by any means, I think this is like my 4th  image colored, so I am still learning. Don't laugh!  I thought this version of Santa best fits me and the other Arizona OWH-ERS as it is HOT here! Still a whopping 105 degrees!

Thanks for stopping by! Grab yourself a Coke and head on to the next blog!
Wait...almost forgot, check out yesterdays blog post for some CANDY! Yup, all ya gotta do is leave some love in the "Doo ba leee doo" on YESTERDAY'S post!
Take care and sending lots of Awesome Mojo Your Way!!!

  33. Hi Raeanna, this Santa is so cute and the card is great! I think you shared this image with me, as I just made a card with it using summery colors of bright pink and light green with "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas" sentiment, which adds to the fun. Yours is so hot it needs no words:)) Always wondered how it feels there rather than here in the cold northeast at Xmas.
