~You Rock and Make It Monday~

I made a card for my nephew.

I used the cool technique Lisa shared on Make It Monday #45,
coloring embossed images with Copics.

I used red on white embossing, and made sure to stay within the white to give it one more border.

gave me the colors to work with. ;)

Take a breath this week and take it one day at a time.  

That's what I'm trying to do!

I have my bag of cards in the car and anytime I have to WAIT...I start addressing cards.  It will get there one day. ;)

Take care now.

Aren't you smart, keeping cards in the car to address when you have a moment! I usually keep a magazine on hand, and it's typically 'Paper Crafts'.

Anyway, back to your card! I like the splashy effect on the tree; it's got such a 'hip' feel to it.

Thanks for playing with us at The Play Date Cafe, and Happy Holidays!
