Tropical Christmas

From the looks of it we are going to have a tropical Christmas here in GA this year!LOL! I still need some Christmas cards since my MIL and stepmom took some of my cards! I made this card today for the sketch challenge. I will give this card to my FIL who lives in Panama City Beach, FL. I used an unusual color combo but I think I like it! I used summer sun, real red, wild wasabi, and tempting turquiose. I colored the tree and sun w/prismacolor pencils and blended w/gamsol and stumps. I think I will go back and add crystal effects to the turquoise ornaments and the white parts of the hat on the sun for a little shine and dimension. I had to lay off the glitter since this is for FIL!LOL! I tried my hand at doodling again for framing still didnt pull it off too good, I may just need to invest in PTI borders and corners set! I used the shell image for the turquiose layer and added some dots I did like the way that turned out! I think its pretty cute! I loved todays sketch challenge!LOTS of layers on this one!

Brayden has been home for the past two days my kids are just taking turns right now being sick. The weather here doesnt help last week it was in the mid 30's @ night. This week we are running the AC @ night. It's 81 today! No snow this Christmas!LOL! N-E-ways Brayden was diagnosed with ashtma Monday after he had a bad ashtma attack Sunday night. He is on round the clock breathing treatments right now so of course he is bouncing off the walls!! He can go back to school tommorrow and hopefully the hair I have pulled out will slowly grow back!LOL!
