A Christmas Card?

Morning all! Eek! I am getting so excited for Christmas Day even though I will be missing one of my boys!

Speaking of Christmas Day...the card I'm posting today is a Christmas card. You can tell, can't ya? This is actually an image from the 12 Days of Christmas collection over at McMahon Five Designs called 12 Drummers Drumming (obviously). Kyler is playing drums, a little, at school so I thought this would be a super cute image to make his card with well...that and it is a hint of what his gift for Christmas is (shhh! don't tell!). This card is full of details you can't see in this photo. The center of the bass has clear glaze on it, the bottom of the snares (for the lack of a better, more knowledgeable word) has clear glaze and a little glitter on it. The cymbal...glitter and the motion in the drum sticks are glittery black. All in all...this was super fun to color and put together! Finally, there is a lot of green as that is Kyler's favorite color but alas, they were out of that color when we ordered his gift so he will get boring black.

This card uses the Mercy Tuesday Sketch Challenge for this week, too so I'll be linking it up there.

So, can you handle a bit more excitement? Well...just stop on back tomorrow for another super fun announcement! Hehehe!

Hi Lorie! Your Drummer turned out fantastic! I love the greens and blues. Perfect for a young man learning to drum! Your secret is safe with me...I won't tell him what his Christmas present is. ;) Have a Merry Christmas!
