Ok I was in a total rush to get this one done today.....we have had a really stressful week but you wanna know what....we brought a house today!!!! :o AHHH!!! SO excited....and scary...but mostly excited :) I am already planning my craft room LOL! It will be a long way away as I will have to slowly save up but atleast I won't be crafting on the floor ;)

 ANYWAY! Here is my card today using Penelope from the new releases.

I know it looks like she is holding some cookies as a christmas gift but if that was me I would just be running away with the cookies to hide them ;) hehe Here are the copic colours that I used on her:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Dress: R32, R35, R37, R59
Green: G21, G28, G29

The photo is a bit crummy sorry! For some reason the shading looks weird :s lol Well can't wait to see you all playing along and here are the dt members links below so you can hop for your chance to win! :)

OMG...and they turn out this beautiful. I can't even begin to imagine what you'll produce with a desk..cripes!!
    As for your card...Run girl, run..hide those cookies. Alyce, she's spectacular and I am so inspired by your card. Must say...that zipper piece...flippin' SWEEEEET!!! Thank you so much for the visit. I'm so far behind lately that I'm looking at my own rear end, but I promise to visit again very SOON!
