NOW... let's get on to the hop!!!

Here is the complete line up

Tonya - You are HERE

If you're coming from Gill's blog, then you're on the right track. If you just happened to stop by my blog today, be sure to head on back to Kristy's blog and hop from the beginning.

I created a card with a Bugaboo Digital.  I imported the digi into Make The Cut and used my marker holder and Silhouette Cameo to draw it.  I also shadowed the image and cut it out with the Cameo.  I colored the image with my Copics.  But wasn't as successful as I would have liked to be.  (I'm still learning).  I still love the was the card turned out. 

Now it's time for you to head on over to Jeannine's blog.

Thank you so much for hopping along with us today, and we all hope that you were filled with loads of Christmas joy, as well as loads of inspiration!
