Snow Scene

I drew this little scene, scanned it and used the program Paint to even out the lines.    I colored with Copic markers and added Liquid Applique, MS glitter and Filigree embossing powder.  It was lots of fun to draw the picture but it's much quicker to use stamps and digi images~sooooo not sure how often I'll be doing this!  I'm going to submit this card to the challenge over at  CMC , there are some beautiful snow cards over there (and some nice prizes)!

Topsy-Turvy Cake

Hi!  I think this'll be the last birthday card I'll make until I've started and finished Christmas cards.  I'm still not sure what I'll do for Christmas cards, and how many people I'll make them for .......hmmmmm....  Anyway this card is a digi image from The Stamping Boutique, and I've colored it with Copics; then did some shading with Prismacolor pencils.  I added some Star Dust Stickles to the bow, some glitter around the cake, and the lollipops and plate got a coat of Diamond Glaze.  I used Copics to color the little tiny pearls at the base of the cake.  That's it for now, thanks for stopping by!  :)

This card will be submitted to the Challenge at Simply Scrapping Crafts/week of November 24.

CMC Copic Challenge/Simply Scrapping Challenge

Got my CMC Challenge done just in the nick of time as cards are to be done by tonight at 10:00! This digi image was generously donated by The Stamping Boutique to use as an inspiration for the challenge.  Image is colored of course with Copic markers.   It took me a bit longer than usual to make this card because I cut out the inside of the angel's wings so I could use some sheer green ribbon for the wings.  I added some Star Dust stickles to the doves and used Viva Decor Glitter Liner in Peridot and Sapphire on the angel's wings.  I'm also submitting this card for the Simply Scrapping Challenge ~Anything Goes!   Thanks for stopping by!

Simply Scrapping/November 10

Good Morning!  It's a foggy, rainy day today here in PA and it's making me want to stay inside and craft instead of running errands~so I finished up my Thanksgiving project for my Simply Scrapping Challenge.  Instead of a card this week, I made a mini-gift box using a template I purchased from My Time Made Easy, designed by Lauren Meader.  This was a quick and easy project and I think I may use this template to make little Christmas gifts.  I'm planning on filling this one with some dark chocolate and giving it as a Thanksgiving hostess gift.  Have a great day!

Willow the Autumn Fairy

Hello Everyone!!!  This week it's Anything Goes using a Michelle Perkett Studio Image over at Michelle Perkett's Challenge blog, so I printed out the beautiful Willow the Autumn Fairy image to color.  Michelle's images always look magical~ making them so fun to color, and as usual I used  Copics.  The design paper is by Basic Grey and ribbon was colored with Copics to coordinate with the image.

Simply Scrapping Card Challenge for Week of November 3

This week's challenge over at Simply Scrapping is to use an image with wings such as butterfly, fairy, or angel.  It's so much fun to add the sparkles to wings; I applied a coat of Star Dust Stickles after coloring with Copics.  Something about the Christmas season approaching is making me feel like dunking everything in glitter.  The snowflakes are coated in Martha Stewart glitter, but it doesn't show up too well in the photo. I colored the Tiddlyink image with Copic markers which is also a requirement of the challenge.
