Holiday Cards

Happy Holidays to all!  It has been one crazy end of year for me - one that has taken me away from my love of copics - BUT I am hoping to get back on track in the upcoming year!  One of my few New Years resolutions - and one that would actually be fun to keep!

Thank you so much to all of my followers who have stuck with me during my sporadic postings!  I am hoping to get back on track to participate in challenges & posting 2-3 times a week.

I wanted to share 2 cards I made for the holidays:

This super cute image is a Sugar Nellie image called Puppy Love.  I colored the image with copic markers.

This cute image is a Whiff of Joy stamp called Love Birds.  I colored the image with copic markers.

Thanks so much for looking!  Stay tuned for more from me =)

Sundays with Crissy - Challenge #23

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to my November post for Sundays with Crissy!!

For this month we would like to see "Christmas Cards Using Non-Traditional Colors!"
That means none of the usual red and green that is everywhere this time of year ;)  We want you to think outside the (Christmas) box and show us what you come up with!  I've chosen one of my favorite Crissy's images "Touched by Love", available as a digi stamp from Whimsy Stamps for my card.

Image:  Crissy Armstrong's - Touched by Love
Image colored with Copic markers
Ribbon - from my stash
Flowers- from my stash
Designer paper - scraps left from last year =)

Come on over and join us this month at Sundays with Crissy to show us your non-traditional Christmas colors on your projects!

If you go back to Sarah's post HERE, you'll find the blue linky froggy and instructions at the bottom of her post.

FF# 94 - Spooky Fall

Hello all!  It feels like forever since I have just been able to sit down and play with my copic markers.  Thank goodness for the Fashionista Friday challenges over at "The Shoe".  The current challenge that we have running is "spooky fall".  So come on over and show us your Halloween or Fall creations!  We cannot wait to see what you create.

For my card I used "Sweet & Toxic" from the Greeting Farm.  I purchased this stamp set last year and can you believe that I have never inked them up?  Wow! 

My cardstock is from my stash - some left over Stampin' Up Halloween paper.

Thank you so much for stopping by & come on over and play with us as "The Shoe"

Challenge #22 - Thanks/Thanksgiving

This month over at Sunday's with Crissy - our challenge is Thanks or Thanksgiving.  I was trying really hard to design a Thanksgiving card (as I truly need a few) but as I went through my Crissy images and stamps - Wee Snippet from Whimsy Stamps was begging (and pleading to be colored up!)

She was so much fun to color and stickle up!

Wee Snippet was colored with copics.
 Cardstock- Recollections
Designer paper- Pinkpaislee - sweetness
Ribbon & flowers - from my stash

Now it's your turn to show us your thanks or Thanksgiving cards! There will be five free digi's given to one lucky challenge participant who will be chosen by at the end of the month! You may now use images from any company and still be included in the draw for the blog candy prize! Those who use one of Crissy's images, either from her rubber or digital collections will be entered twice in the draw. But please respect the rule of no more than three entries per month. Otherwise your entries could be deleted.

You can link up you project on Sarah's post by clicking HERE. Just find the Blue Linky button and add your project! (She has all the instructions!).

Have a great day everyone!
