OMG - It's Almost Time!

The Winter Festival feast is only one day away and the Guild Hall house gnomes are in an absolute panic to get everything ready. We have quite a few guests coming tomorrow including Guild Mercenary Kimmy, mine own lady mother, some of the Lady Commander of Copics’ monster friends, our little mousey friend Maxwell, Chilly Willy and various others travelling in from all over the realm. Even though I was in the midst of a quest with my fellow guildies, we hung up our weapons and armor and jumped into the fray to assist the house gnomes with preparations for tomorrow. 

This was created for the Creative Card Crew’s “Anything Goes” challenge that is happening now! Create a project and you could win a $15 gift voucher to Scrapping Center!
I started this card by colouring the KennyK “Total Drama” image using Prismacolor pencils. I stamped the Dec 25 calendar page using the Dylusions “Christmas Accessories” set, inking around the edges a bit using Tea Dye Distress Ink. I used a page out of an old manga comic and ripped it down the middle so my Christmasy design paper was showing through. This earned me +77 destruction exp points. I purposely chose this page because the dialogue you can see says “But it’s almost time…” Last I cut the OMG letters out using the Robotz cartridge. 

On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the Dylusions “Christmas Words” set and framed it by stamping the Unity “Stick With Me” image. I used the negative cut that was left over from cutting the OMG on the front as a stencil and sponged some red ink onto it.

So this envelope took about as long as the whole card did - lol. First I drew out all the lines to separate them into comic book type panels. I left the middle blank to write the address and then started stamping images in the other panels. The top left and middle were stamped with the Crafty Secrets “Coffee and Tea” set. The next one was stamped with the FlonzCraft “Cute Kids and Teens” anime set. The bottom left was stamped with the Tim Holtz “Christmas Memories” set. Next up I used the Lawn Fawn “Winter Sparrow” set and the “Winter Owl” set. Last I used the Lawn Fawn “Yeti Set Go” set. I sent this to my friend who is a comic artist and graphic designer and it looked so awesome after I wrote the address in the middle!

This card will shriek with terror in the following challenges:

Sometimes the most important quest line is happening right in your own home. With us guildies helping them, the house gnomes were able to complete all the outstanding tasks and breathe a little easier...that is until my lady mother shows up…that is a whole ‘nother quest in itself. *shudder*
