Warmest Wishes - Saturated Canary

 Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadians out there! Happy Monday to everyone else!

For the first time in a looooooong time, I got out my copics and coloured!!! It had been long enough that I was afraid I'd forgotten how! lol 

Today, I tried a technique that I learned over at Deb's Blog - Crafty Cardi Higgins - I love the way she distresses strips of paper (see a beautiful example here), pleats them and sews them onto her cards. I finally made a point of trying it out and I love how it worked on this card. Thanks Deb for the inspiration! I will definitely be trying this one again!

The current challenge at Saturated Canary is "Season's Greetings," so I would like to share over there. This was a fun colour combo to play with and I think I will use it again. And now that I have my copics out again, I am itching to colour of another of Krista's adorable images.

I would also like to share over at Christmas Card Challenges
CHNC Challenge - anything goes Christmas.

Thanks for visiting!
