Its Christmas at the Graph'it Bog!!!

Happy happy Friday everyone!!!

Today is my eldest girls birthday today ... she's a big 10!!! wow how the time flies.

I'll be posting pics tomorrow if i get chance.

Today is also the start of a new challenge over at the Graph'it Marker Blog and this week we would love to see you use your markers (any markers) to colour up some Reds and Greens for christmas ... yes yes I know its early but if you think its only 3 more paydays to xmas then its not really is it ??

Right now i've scared you all half to death i'll show you what I did lol

I used the brand new stamps sets from Polka Doodles , these are the Poinsettias and the Sentiment from the Winter Spruce set.

I also made a matching little gift box to go with the card.  I used Kraft card as I love how it looks with the xmas reds and greens.

Graph'it Markers used to colour the Poinsettias and leaves are:

Poinsettias: 5245, 5240, 5220
Leaves: 8180, 8270, 8160
9507 for shading on all.

The backing paper's are from the new Angelberry Christmas CDrom... and did you noticed ... i've added my personalized Christmas watermark - how cute is that!

I do hope you will join us over at the challenge blog, there is a fantastic prize up for grabs:

The winner of this week's challenge will win a fantastic prize of 6 Graph'It markers and a Mix'It Blending palette and Mix'It Fluid! 

Right i'm off now to eat Minion birthday cake!

Hugs xx Cara xx
