Stamping with My Besties

Hi friends!  For those that celebrated Thanksgiving this week, have you had your fill of turkey yet?  This year, I started my Christmas shopping early and was finished by Thanksgiving.  Even the packages are wrapped.  Today, I put up and decorated my parents tree as well as our own.  The outside of our home is decorated, so I am in pretty good shape as far as getting a jump on things.  I am hoping to devote the next couple of weeks to some fun Christmas crafting and baking.

Today, I have one last fall-themed card that I made for a dear friend for Thanksgiving.  She was kind enough to send me this My Besties stamp recently, so I couldn't wait to use it.

The image was colored with Copic markers and highlighted with a bit of Stickles.  The papers are from Graphic 45's "An Eerie Tale" collection.  The fancy opening around the stamp was made with a Go Kreate die.  I used a cream Viva pearl pen to edge the opening; however, it is too light to show up well.  A darker pearl shade would have been better.  Anyway, I finished it off with some Prima flowers and a PTI sentiment.

I love the sweet images from My Besties.  I've put in a request to Santa for a couple more!  lol  It was fun using my Copics again.  I find it very relaxing.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and for any comments you leave.  I hope the week ahead is wonderful for you.
