You are the Best!

My family has had a bit of a rough summer.  I wanted to send a card to a friend to thank her for all the support she has given me.  I used and image colored during a  Kit and Clowder coloring class and paired it with the eclipse technique demonstrated by Jennifer McGuire.




The image is from the Elements of Nature coloring class from Kit and Clowder.  Below is a photo of my coloring while in progress.





In this image the coloring is complete but I have not yet cut the image to fit my card or cut out the letters for "YOU".



Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Snowman and Bird II

 I'm so happy I have extra images colored and waiting to be put on a card.  It have me the opportunity to make one more card for the BYSH Cardmakers blog hop during my lunch break.



I used some of the October Afternoon papers that I had stashed away.  All the DP pieces except the blue snow flake piece were scraps from other projects.  The heart boarder was also a scrap.   I have no idea where the 3 snowflakes came from but I pulled them out of the bin of extra die cuts on my desk.  I love when a card comes together and uses up bits and pieces from other projects.

Snowman and Bird

 I have another entry for the BYSH Cardmakers blog hop.  This is another image that I colored previously and had sitting on my desk.




I'm not sure I like the way it turned out.  I had the card "finished" but then decided to add the birch trees.  I think I should have left them off.

Festive Wreath

 I have another card to share for the BYSH Cardmarkers blog hop.   This is another image that I colored and have had sitting on my desk for months.   I fussy cut out the wreath and kept the rest of the layout pretty simple (for me).  I also used colored cardstock to make the card base.  For some reason, I rarely do this but I like the way it looks here.

Ho Ho Ho Kitty

Earlier this week I was able to color 2 copies of this cute kitty image.  I used one on a card earlier this week and found time to make another.   This was supposed to be a quick card but cutting and gluing 3 layers of kraft paper and then the dp took some time.

Christmas Mouse Again

 I used this sweet mouse on a card for the last BYSH Cardmarkers hop.  I almost always print at least two copies of digital stamps.  If I make a mistake, I have a spare, otherwise I can make more than 1 card.   I have had this little guy sitting on my desk for ages so I decided to quickly put him on a card during my lunch break.  I used some left over die cuts and pieces of paper in an effort to keep it quick and simple.
