Friday Some Odd Girl November Challenge

Happy Friday!

This is my second post of the day- You can scroll down  to see my Moxxie Christmas Countdown!

If you have followed my blog for awhile you know that I really loved stamping and making cards along with scrapbooking.  I had taken a couple of classes at my local scrapbook store from Jana Millen ( a friend of Jennifer Mcguire's) and from Jennifer herself and they got me totally hooked on coloring.  I don't know how it happened but I got away from stamping and coloring and moved more into cardmaking with embellishments from the paper companies.   Don't get me wrong- I love that too but I was missing the coloring.  I love sitting at my desk and getting out my pencils and pens and just coloring!  It feels so good to back doing it again.

One of my favorite stamps to color are the stamps from Some Odd Girl!  These images are just so fun and they are so adorable.  This month's challenge is a sketch challenge. To see all the details please go HERE. Here is the sketch:
I colored Mistletoe Kaylee.  I broke into my Christmas stash of paper and pulled out some old October Afternoon.  I thought it would be perfect for this adorable girl.  I colored her with my Spectrum Noir pens.  I think she turned out just adorable.  I just love her! I then added some more stamping with some Elle's Studio stamps from the December Daily stamp collection and used the adorable Paper Smooches sentiment.
