December de-stressing

Hi again,
     I'm trying to de-stress today by coloring. It's much better for me than eating!  As promised I finished up a holiday card using the talented Mo Manning image of Little Elf Mim.  I think he's so cute.  I wanted to practice coloring glass or reflection and I like the way it turned out. I'm not sure but I just may add liquid glass over the ornament to make it pop.  The paper is AC Patterned paper:  Merrymint, embellis are from my stash, as is the ribbon. I'd love a comment to see what you think.  I'm going to try to find a video tutorial to share on coloring glass and shiny surfaces.  The card is being sent out to one of my "most" crafty friends as I know she will appreciate it.
     I'm also very excited, I just made my second purchase from Groupon.  I will be taking a digital photography and web design certification course.  Much fun! On the never ending quest for the perfect photo.  Of course it will be of my teen not a nature scene or something the like of.

The Copic's used:  BG11, BG32, R20, R22, R24, R29, R89, G40, G43, G24, YG63, YG67, YR21, YR30, C00, C3.  Not too much else today.  We have Curtiss's first high school basketball game tonight.  He and I went to the St. Bernard's first hockey game of the season last night to watch all his buddies play.  What a great game! As I've said before...High school games are just as exciting as any other sporting event. Going to decorate the tree at some point too...Enjoy your day, and 
Carpe Diem!
