Sweet Nativity



I think I used every single Copic marker I have to color this image!!    LOTS of colors ~please see list at the end of this post.   Thank goodness I am able to get my Copics from 7 Kids College Fund  since they have the best prices and selection around!    

This is another from the brand new holiday collection from Penny Black, called SWEET NATIVITY.   My favorite part of this particular image is the adorable faces of the animals peeking their heads out on each side of the image!    

I also can’t tell you enough how impressed I am with this new stamp form they’ve come up with.  It’s called Slapstick ~ if you’re interested, you can read about it on my post from a few days ago – here




In case I haven’t mentioned it ~ I just LOVE ALL these new images from Penny Black!!   You can take a peek at the entire collection at 7 Kids.   I also love this dp from Karen Foster Design, called Christmas Ribbons ~ I really love the rich dark colors and tried to color my image to match. 

I, of course, HAD to add some Stickles – in Golden Rod on the star and the star rays in the background.  No Christmas card is complete without some glitter!   I tied some gold metallic string to the side of the card and attached a wooden heart I had in my stash.  

Thanks for stopping today ~  Hope you have a great week!
