Audrey Has a Gift For You!

Hello friends!  Guess what day it is?! HUMP DAY! :)
It is also a day of many other days today.  Today my littlest baby turns 17!  (Where in the world did all of that time go?!  They grow so fast!)  It is also the Anniversary of 9-11 of course as well.  If anything, I wish everyone around the world love and peace and to please remember that we are ALL here together in this beautiful beautiful world...be kind to one another.

Since this weather has been so unseasonably hot around here lately, I thought it would be a great time to think "COOL" thoughts and make me another Christmas design!
This adorable girl is called My Little Audrey "Christmas Presents" and she is from The Stamping Boutique.
Yes, exciting news...Tracy has re-opened the store once again and she is having a "Welcome back" challenge!!  So I hope you pop on over there and let Tracy know you are happy about her re-opening her shop!  She has digital stamps for every style!  (My all time fave is those sweet Audrey and AJ stamps!)  I didn't want her very first challenge to go by without joining in!

I've colored her in with my Copics and added some dots with my white gel pen and added some sparkle to her hat and the border.  I've also stamped a flourish image around the border as well.  The papers are all from Stampin' Up! and I've also added a bow to the circle sentiment from SU!.  The lace and flowers are bunches from my long and never-ending stash! LOL!  Hope you enjoy my design and think cool thoughts today!  I look forward to this hot weather ending very soon as I like to sit on my patio and it's way too hot to enjoy time outside right now.

Here's some challenges that I want to enter this for:
The Stamping Boutique - Christmas
CRAFT - Christmas
Sunday Sketch and Stamp - sketch
Tuesday Throwdown - anything goes
Penny's Paper Crafty - anything goes
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Devine Digis

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'm not really feeling well this morning as everything is taking me so long to do and my head hurts, so I think I'm going to rest for a bit.  Enjoy your day!

HUGS & SMILES
