My bloggy friend Julie is the Visiting Librarian at The Library Challenge #45 … she has chosen this book by Dave Barry, and I have chosen to turn it into a Christmas card depicting
the best trip to the tree farm ever!!
Using the Cool Christmas set of stamps and dies, from MFT,
I was inspired by:
- The sky, and skyline
- the yellow bus full of people
- the statues turned trees
Ready to see?
and here's a look at the Copics I used to color it!
Hope the librarians like it!!
I love the way you think!! This is brilliant Michele and your coloring looks fantastic!
Sweet as pie! GREAT! use of your patterned paper Loving the snowy sky and that perfect polka dotted highway!!
Clever take on the book cover ... love it.
I think EVERYBODY will like it, not just librarians! So cute and clever!
What a crowd pleaser of a card, Michele! Love the idea of switching it up. Such a fun image. I adore your attention to detail. The neat and festive "road!" The snowflake pattern paper sky. You blow me away time and again. Hugs!
What a wonderful skyline, Michele! I love how it blends into the distance in a snowy haze! The yellow car full of happy snow people has the feeling of movement and reminds me of our yellow Volkswagon Squareback full of kids. A super fun card, my friend!
Oh my word, you are such a clever, clever woman Michele! I so love your take on the book, too cute and perfect. The yellow car full of snowmen crack me up, love their Christmas tree on top of the car-looks like they picked a good one. lol Love your beautiful skyline, the cityscape in the distance and the trees. This card is just way to cute!!! Sentiment is so true. Hugs, Brenda
I LOVE IT!!! Very clever to turn the elements into a holiday card with the station wagon, sky and skyline. Adorable. Thanks so much for playing along!
awww. I love that patterned paper and your coloring and design is fab!
Winner, winner, chicken dinner. I'd say you nailed it from the skyline to the cheery yellow car...hope the snowmen don't dampen the seets. Super cute!
What a fun Christmas tree outing take on the Librarian Challenge, Michele. Love all the colors you used..especially the bus color yellow family car:-) TFS my friend. Hugs..Nancy
Love all the little sentiments along the road, Michele. The rest goes without saying.
Don't you just LOVE this stamp set?! I love your play on the inspiration photo and how fun would it be to take a class trip to a tree farm?! Absolutely ADORABLE card Michele and colored to perfection!! Hugs. (Oh, and thank you SO much for my FABULOUS Halloween card...LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!)

Such a fun design and I love how your Copic coloring brings all of these images to life! Fabulous take on the inspiration photo!
Adorable scene, great coloring, and I love your "stripey" paper ground!
