Winter theme cards

Christmas is my favorite time of year..I love making little gifts for the holidays! Every year I say I'm going to start very early and every year I get behind and time slips away from me. But this year I may be a little better than last because at least this year I've already started on Christmas cards and have several gifts bought already, woohooo! I have 10 little jars of peach preserves ready to add my little handmade tags and a loaf of pumpkin bread for friends and family, I love those kinds of gifts!

Here are some Winter and Christmas cards I've been working on. This is actually my second attempt at copics..the first was a complete disaster and will never be shown here, lol! I really really like my prismacolor pencils..but I have all these beautiful copics that I bought and I thought that if I don't give them another try, they will just dry up before I get brave enough to start using. They are just images after all..what is the harm. I kinda like how these Tilda images turned out, especially since I'm a beginner! I have a hard time blending and getting the face to look right without all the lines..its going to take some practice for sure! I have added some stardust accent to Tilda's white outfit..I LOVE that pen!! Papers are from MME and Fancy Pants..both are winter collections.

The Santa tag is one of the 3 I made for a swap, this antique Santa image went so well with the Basic Grey DP...and Im actually on the road to using up my stash..woohooo!
