Stamps R US-Anything Goes

 Stamps R Us has an ‘Anything Goes’ challenge going on, so I took the opportunity to play with a couple of fun images from Boni Bleaux Designs
Here is the Sketch:
DTD1205 Sketch
I colored my ‘Dude’ with Copic markers, and highlighted the tree, ornaments, star and beer cans with Creative Inspirations Paint. I dude-led around the edges of my die cut, and to finish off my card, fringed the bottom layer like a rug.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.
Life is good- I bet the girls are out Christmas shopping…..or, they are in the kitchen making something delicious for dinner…….
There is also a freebie available now at the Dude Time Doodles blog for a chance to be the next Guest Designer- for a month!  Let me tell you, they are a very fun and energetic bunch! Entries are due by this Friday 12/17.
