What's Cooking?

Good afternoon everyone! :) How is the weather where you are today? Autumn is definitely on it's way in this part of the world, and I'm loving it!! Chilly mornings and golden leaves. Bliss. Anywho..

Here I am with my second project for Quixotic, let's just say I'm a LOT happier with how this one turned out! :) I had a lot of fun colouring this cutie up!

I have made a Christmas card with a stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie called Merry. Isn't she the sweetest?! I bet she gets a lotta guests around her house on Christmas day serving a turkey THAT size! I couldn't decide to go with oranges or lemons on top of it, so I done one of each!! 

I have coloured this cutie using Copics for her skin and hair and ProMarkers for the rest of her, fussy cut her out and adhered her to a vellum oval. I have used some delicious papers from Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas 6x6 paper pad. Are those colous not lovely?! I'm really loving the non-traditional papers coming out this year!! The sentiment and the cute little oven gloves are part of the stamp set, I just had to use all three stamps! :)

Some aqua embellishments in the form of ribbon and brads are just enough to finish off this card.
