Merry Christmas!

Woo hoo! I actually got some crafty things accomplished this weekend! I decided to try my hand at a clean and simple look, and this is what I came up with:

I used a Tim Holtz stamp and added some Stickles to those gorgeous snowflakes. The ribbon is from Stampin' Up - love that gorgeous stuff - perfect for Christmas cards! The rubon is from Kaiser Craft. That's it - just that simple. Actually I was going to go for just the snowflakes, but I just couldn't resist blinging them up a little bit!

Now I've got to get busy and get some more cards together! Time is flying and I'm pretty much standing still!

Thanks for stopping by! Big hugs!

I'll Be Home for Christmas!!!

Two posts in the same day? This is a record for me! Woo hoo!

I just couldn't resist finishing up the card for this cute little image from A Day for Daisies - is this not the cutest little baby ever??? Tammy has several other coordinating images on her site - she is such a talented artist!

I colored the iamge with pencils, and added some glitter - what is a Christmas card without glitter??? The patterned papers are from Pink Paislee and The Girls' Paperie. That gorgeous ribbon is from Stampin' Up. The sentiment is from Cosmo Cricket.

Thanks for stopping by! Big hugs!

Thanksgiving is Coming ... and I'm Not Moving Fast Enough!!!

Okay, trying to get caught up on my projects, but not making a lot of progress! I've been teaching myself how to color with colored pencils and how to color with Copics at the same time, and with limited available free time, I haven't actually finished very much.

I did manage to finish these four Thanksgiving cards this weekend. They all use the same image from A Day for Daisies - Tammy's art work is amazing! But I made each of the cards themselves slightly different. The photos aren't all that great - too much shadow when I took them, so you can't really see the subtle backgrounds on each image - I think they look much better in person.

As far as papers and embellishments for these cards, I used Basic Grey Pyrus collection (from a 6x6 pad). I used my favorite Stampin' Up Top Note die to cut out the images - Catherine Pooler is an awesome Stampin' Up lady! Those GORGEOUS ribbons are from one of my favorite Etsy shops, Creating Is Fun. I used Prismacolor pencils. And those awesome little alphabet stickers are from Cosmo Cricket.

Now back to work finishing up some other cards that I'm making with other A Day for Daisies digital images!

Thanks for stopping by! Big hugs to all!
