Dreams Come True

I absolutely love this image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  It called "Dream," and is available in both a boy and a girl version.  I have had this for quite a while.  Last weekend I found this paper by Imaginisce online.  I knew they would be perfect together.  Today was very stressful so I couldn't wait to get home for some coloring therapy.  It really did help.

Christmas Wreath '12

This is the first of my February Christmas cards for Splticoast's Christmas Card Challenge.  I'm planning on making three Christmas cards each month.  It worked out very well last year.  I made six a month, but had way too many so I'm cutting  back this year.  This is a favorite image of mine.  It's from Isabella's Sketchbook.  It's available here.                                                                                                                             Copics:  BV11, BV17, C0.

Rock Star !

I made this card using  Lil Sweeties Rock Star By Sherri Baldy, available here.  She is just a doll!  I colored here with Copics and added some Stickles to the ruffle on the dress and the star.  The papers are from My Mind's Eye.  The dream ticket and the die used to cut it are from Whimsy Stamps.  I have never used this hair combo of colors before.  I really like it.  I'll be using it again.

Copic Marker Scrapbooking-February Release

These are two cards I made for Copic Marker Scrapbooking.  They are part of a release of mythological images.  These were two of my favorites.  It was kind of fun to be able to create something totally different from what I usually do.  Both images were colored with Copics.  You can visit their site at Making Our Mark.  They are also on Facebook.

German Shepherd I

This is the final card I'm posting today.  The washing machine is calling my name!  This image is from Digi Doodle Shop.  They make most of my favorite animal images and this one is brand new this week!  Please stop by and see their great collection.  I have completed two cards with this image, but the other is saved for my DT entry.  That one has a bit more to it.  I colored this with Copics.  The papers are from my stash.

Raggedy Ann & Andy

I figured with all the Valentine's challenges out there I should make a Valentine's card.  I never send them, though.  This adorable image is from  Stitchy Bear.  It's called the Raggedies.  I have always loved Raggedy Ann and Andy.  I have made a couple sets. The first set I made before my oldest daughter was born.  I still have them sitting on a chair in the guest room.  I don't think I'll ever part with them.  This card makes me want to sew another set. I colored this with Copics.  I didn't save the color numbers.  I was working on four cards in a row and didn't put any away.  I had to laugh, my daughter came out and looked at my work area and I had about a hundred makers spread out on the table.  What a mess!  The heart dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs.

Card for Marcheta

 I made this card for a dear friend at work, Marcheta.  Her father just passed this weekend at age 92.  I wanted to make extra pages in it because we have a lot of employees at work that will be signing.

The image is from Digi Doodle Shop.  I have used this image a couple times.  She is just very sweet.  Marcheta loves my cards.  It makes me chuckle.  She buys them to put them in her house as artwork.  I'm very honored. 

I put tabs on the extra pages so they would be easier to get at.  I found that without them I had a hard time separating the layers.

The papers are from my stash.  I think some of them are from Stampin' Up.  I used Copics to color the image.

Copics:  C00, C0, C1, E000, E00, E01, G21, R01, R02, R11, R22, Y35, Y38, YR20, YR21, YR24
