Christmas Stampin All Year Long Sketch Challenge #10

Hello Dear Friends!! This is going to be a really short post . . .I just needed to get this post published for this week's Christmas Stampin All Yearl Long Challenge #10! Be sure to stop by the blog and check out all the beautiful cards posted by our challenge divas aka design team!

Before I continue, I want to wish my beautiful sweet darling daughter "Happy Birthday". She turns 18 today! OMG! She's not exactly thrilled about it. . .she once told me that she's happy and wish she didn't have to grow up. Awww, makes me a little sad. . .she has been the greatest light in my life. She has been my inspiration, my sunshine, my hope for a brighter and happier tomorrow.

I'll explain all of it one day. . .we've experienced a lot together. . .but right now, I just want to say "I love you, sweet child"!!

Anyway, I wanted to get this post out because we're going to spend the day with my daughter. . .first, we're going to eat out at her most favorite restaurant in Orange County. . .an hour 1/2 drive (but it's all worth it), take her shopping (big time), then watch a movie. She wanted it low key so no fan fair for her.

Anyway, stop by Christmas Stampin All Year Long blog and check out the sketch challenge. Hope you all will play along this week!!

Have a glorious day, Everyone!!

Hey Maria!!! Happy Birthday to your baby girl!!! Can't believe she's 18 already... dang, when I first met you - wasn't she like 11? LOL... just kidding... they grow up soooo FAST, but you have been doing such a great job with her, she's a mirror image of you!!! =0) I hope you are all having a wonderful day spending it together celebrating her.

Love your card!!! House Mouse is so cute, ya?! Love all the coloring you did on here.... I can't seem to use traditional Christmas colors at this time. But I'm glad I got to join in. Hopefully, this week, I can catch up with the other challenges that I've missed.

Big Hugs,

Maria, wow - again your card is amazing. Bummed I couldn't participate in this weeks challenge. Thanks for the sweet comments on my ARIGATO know sometimes things just fall into place.

Question: when coloring in with copic markers...what paper do you use? On matte paper seems the ink bleeds with the markers really easily...HELp

have a great week...
