Coffee of the Day - Eggnog
Merry Christmas, one and all! and God Bless Us, Everyone! :)
I pray for all of you, peace, good tidings, and blessings in abundance!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. grab a cup of yummy coffee while I tell you about a most lovely lady by the name of Alyce that some of us are recognizing with a special little blog hop.
if you are following the trail left by Santa and his reindeer, then you should have come here by way of Jamie Peters. if you have a moment, please stop by our esteemed Santa, Mari, who worked hard to put all of this together and tell her thank you! :)
a full list of the hop can be found here, at Carol's blog. :)
if you don't know Alyce and her AMAZING class group called Kit and Clowder, then I suggest you head straight on over just as soon as you can! not only is she one of the nicest people you will ever meet on this big blue marble, but she is super dee duper talented with Copic markers. I haven't even started my classes full throttle yet, and I have learned so much from her. I could sit and watch her color for hours, if given the chance. she has a Facebook group that is such fun, filled with kind and encouraging people. as the new year begins, I am jumping in with both feet to Copic markers, so be on the lookout! :)
we were encouraged to create either a regular Christmas card for Alyce or an ugly card. I chose to go the 'ugly sweater' route, using the adorable image from Saturated Canary, 'Ugly Christmas Sweater.' papers are from the Basic Grey Nordic Holiday collection, flower is Petaloo, and mini flourish dies are Cheery Lynn. a paper straw tied with baker's twine and some sequins complete the card. I did add some sparkly touches with stickles and a clear spica glitter gel pen. her glasses are coated in crystal effects.
I think my card works for both the 'ugly' and 'ugly sweater' portion of the challenge, don't you?! ;)
your next stop on the hop is Carline Samedy. be sure to wish her a Merry Christmas when you get there! :)
