12 Days of Christmas Day 1


It’s here, it’s here, my 2nd most favorite time of the year!!!  Welcome to the 2nd annual 12 Days of Christmas Smeared and Smudged style!  Are you stoked?  I am !  There are so many bloggers this year!!!  So I have listed the blog roll on the right hand side bar!  It will be there throughout the entire time!  Today I have for you a card I made with a new layout I just learned recently!  It is called a center step card and the tutorial can be found on the Bombshell blog!
I used an image from my beloved StampInsanity

Isn’t he just the cutest? 
Now you all know I am not a bragger or a tooter of my own horn, but I have to tell you that the green of his outfit, shoes, hat, and ribbons are all done with one copic marker!  It took a while but yep I only used one color!!!  I am totally proud of that fact! 
Now wish me a happy birthday, tell me weather or not you like my card and head on over to the next person on the list!  As I said before I have the roll posted on the sidebar!!!
