I received this image from a friend..I think she's a WOJ image?  She's colored with copics.

Friday Sketchers and Just Magnolia

I made this card using Tanja's sketch over at Friday Sketcher's and paired it with Edwin sledding for the "anything goes" challenge over at Just Magnolia.
 I love the bright vivid non-traditional colors of this MME "Colorful Christmas" collection. I'll reach for it again and again....

Fall is in the air...

Ahh...I LOVE Fall...Its in the air today...that cool crisp feeling that makes ya want to put some cider on to simmer and throw on a sweater. I love sweater weather! Its my most favorite time of the year! My boys spent the weekend out side playing football, its the quietest this house has been in months.
During the heat of the summer they would only last an hour outside at max. 
Its been awesome hearing them play together..little boy laughter is contagious!

Anyway..I made up a card with the cutey little girl with pumpkin designed by Heather Ellis. And if you want to pick up your own digi of this stamp you can find them HERE 
DP: Fancy Pants

Also you should know that Wild Orchid Crafts has recently lowered their prices, as well as shipping, to the US..so if you've been holding out on buying these gorgeous Mulberry flowers,  nows the time to dive in!

And on another note..my E000 copic went dry, boohoo!  So I have ordered a refill..just have to wait for it to make its way to me. I just cannot bring myself to color another face without it :(  

Heather Ellis digi Christmas cards...

Ok..so this little project took about 6hours longer than I expected it to take, :0)..
but alas I have finally finished up another batch of Christmas cards!
I have used a digi stamp by Heather Ellis. I love this little image, so cute and whimsical...She is colored with copics with a little Stickles and Flower Soft "snow" added in. OK..so I really really wanted to color those mistletoe berries red! I know they are green and stuck with green..but they were just begging for red..lol..
 Papers are from My Mind's Eye.."Colorful Christmas", I adore this collection and just bought another set (just in case I run low and decide to hoard some, lol)
And check out the ticket stub!  Isn't it FAB!!  It came from Bizzy Becs and you should head on over to the store to check out the Halloween ticket stubs..so cute!

Anywhooo...It's World Card Making Day weekend..so happy card making!
