It's Just a Number -- Crafty Sentiments Designs

Hi Everyone!!
Don't worry... It's just a number!!
Yes, there are only a few days left until Christmas,
but what I really mean is that BIRTHDAYS are only just a
number and you are only as old as you feel or let yourself believe!!

Our theme this week on the challenge blog is: "Birthdays"
and it will actually run until January 6th to give the DT some time off
to get ready for and celebrate the holidays with their families and friends!!

This super cool guy is:  Doctor - Tobey and I couldn't help but make
a humorous card with this one!!  :) When I learned that the challenge was going
to be "Birthdays" I knew that I wanted to go with fun and silly -- kind of like me.  ;) ;)

I hope you like my fun little mini card!!
This week is going to be crazy nuts with family pics,
school room mom stuff like the holiday party, and of course
the regular hullabaloo that comes with the upcoming holiday!!
I really hope that I can keep my head above water this time around... 
It's my first holiday season as a crafter and I don't know how you all do it!!

Here are the colors that I used:
Upper left: hair and shoes --Upper right: khaki pants & headband
Lower left: medical bag -- Lower left: shirt, metal stuff, & shadows

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Here Come the Boys: Anything Goes - Boys
613 Avenue Create: Anything Goes/CAS
Artistic Inspirations: #72 Anything Goes
Love to Create: #96 Anything Goes
My Craft Creations: Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes
Make it Monday: Anything Goes

I wish everyone the best of luck this week with their holiday preparations!!
I'm certain that 2014 will bring lots of new and exciting changes 
and I can't wait to share the news with all of you!! 
This is my last DT required card, but I'm 
hoping to get a few "for fun" ones
in before the end of 2103!!
to all of you!!

Warm Winter Wishes -- YNS Fun Friday & CANDY WINNER !!!!!

Hi Everyone!!
Happy Friday to YOU!!!
I have a super cute image for you today 

Here is Sweet Dreams and I colored her up with copics 
and some of my fave blue-green shades of Shin-han makers!! 

On my card, I also used 2 other YNS products:  the Warm Winter Wishes clear stamp set
and the Gumdrops in Ivory at the bottom of my image panel.   :) :) :)

For this month's challenge you can use the inspiration pic, the sketch, or you can make
a fun fusion of both!!   I chose to use the inspiration pic for my card.  :) :)
I loved the deeper shades in the background and the pop of
yellow in the corner.  :) :)  The frosty look in the pic
also lends itself to the frosty night on my DP.

We hope that you will pop over to the challenge blog to join in with us this month!!
There is a fabulous prize and you could also be the next Guest Designer
chosen to work with YNS for an upcoming stamp release!!

The colors for skin & hair are in the upper 2 quadrants.
The colors for her pajamas and the candle are in the bottom 2.

My Blog Candy winner is: SHARLA!!!!!
**Please email me and let me know
which candy you would like!!
CONGRATS, Sharla!!
