Recipe Challenge

The last couple of prompts from the Christmas Card a Day at TallyScrapper have left me stumped.  Who has come up with those prompts? Yes, Me.
It all started on Nov. 14th with use a photo on your card.
I had great plans to use the children in their scarves and mittens that my mom had made for them before she passed last Christmas. It just didn't come together.

So, I have been left stumped on how to move forward.
Enter today's Recipe challenge from Some Odd Girl.
It's just what I needed to get passed the photo debacle!

Yesterday, I colored in Elf Kaylee.
She was SOOO cute up until I decided on brown eyes and
highlighting with my gel white pen.
Sometimes, I need to learn when to say enough is enough.
I'm trying to teach myself how to color in the cute noses the gals do over at Some Odd Girl, but I have loads more practicing to do.

The recipe:
2 pattern papers + colored cardstock base (NO KRAFT OR WHITE BASE) + buttons + punch/die cut = your card.
Hair: RV10, RV21, RV23; Skin: E00, E02, YR00; Light green colors: YG11, YG03, YG06; Dark green colors: G02, G05, G17;
Oh, yes.. and I am trying to learn how to color in my own backgrounds too.
How do they make it look so easy?
Elf Kaylee is still cute, and I have another Christmas Card completed!

Can  you believe Thanksgiving is just 7 days away?
I have got to buy a Turkey tomorrow, have you bought yours yet? :)
