Day 25 of 25 Days 2012

Hello my crafty friends, today is the last day of the 25 Days at My Paper Crafting.  Wow didn't that go by fast?!!  I can't believe that December has flown by the way it has, of course Christmas always seems to sneek up on me. lol  For today I used the beautiful free digi of Baby Jesus in the manger and put it on an S fold 5x7 card base.  Used my Spectrum Noir markers to color Baby Jesus and I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, it does look much better in person though.  I am trying to do better with these markers-but as you can see I still have much to learn.  I am hoping after the holidays I can focus on practicing my coloring and technique!  The Santa paper is from an old Martha Steward paper pack and the dark red star paper is from My Minds Eye, Lost and Found Christmas stack, and I belive the paper that I used the Spellbinder die on is from this years DCWV Christmas stack. I punched a star from glitter paper and made it into a 3D barn star and used stickles around it. I didn't get my inside sentiment done as my grandchildren were here spending the night and they woke up. For the inside I plan on cutting a mat the same as the front and using a computer generated "Jesus is the Reason for the Season".  I hope you have enjoyed the 25 Days 2012 at My Paper Crafting this year and all the freebie that Melin has so generously given out to you.  I know it has been really awesome for me to be on the design team with many wonderfuly talented women!! My mojo wasn't the best as I got busier for Christmas.  I just wasn't with it this year, but I hope that you found lots of inpiration from all the design team women and enjoyed spending time with us this year!  Wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy New Year!!!  Crafty hugs to all and to all a good night!
