Winter Hanglar card

I LOVE Hanglar images! This one came from my friend Holley (thanks Holley!) I colored this image with blues to match some paper that Lynn sent me (thanks Lynn!) what a cute little winter combination! This will go in my Winter card collection to be sent out really soon. I used Triart markers to color this image, I have found that the Triarts blend really well with copics..and i love the fine tip for small details.

Country Christmas

I love the "A Child's Year" cartridge for Cricut! The images are darling! I cut this image out and decided to try it on a card. I used kraft cardstock to give it a "Country Christmas" feel. I wanted it to be a simple card, but it needed a little something. I cut and distressed a couple circles to embellish it a little. I think it still needs more kills me to do clean and simple cards! Maybe I might add a verse to the front :0)

Happy Holidays!

I had great intentions of getting lots of cards made up over the weekend, but my little guy had other ideas. He came down with a stomach bug and he and I stayed up til 5am Sunday playing nurse/patient, lol! Poor little man! Of course Dad was at work, then a football game so he missed the entire "episode", ROFL!

I did manage to get a few cards made. Here is a cute little Tilda from the Yummy collection, I thought she would be really cute for a Chrismas card. I have colored her with copics..I know I still need alot of practice, lol! Some people are just naturals at using markers but not I! Im better with pencils and watercolor, its so hard for me to get the shadowing right with the copics but I will keep trying.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season thus far! We will try to put our tree up tomorrow. We've been so busy, but we did get the outside decorated early least that is something! I have alot of my gifts put together for coworkers and friends, so I'm ticking down my "to do" list~slowly but surely!
