For Makaela

 This is the first commissioned card I've made in quite a while.  Although, the Christmas requests are coming in now.  This is for a friend who's daughter is doing a year of college in Australia.  She wanted a special card to send.  I looked through my images and thought this would be ideal.  I had so much fun making this card.  She needed it in one night so I had to work pretty quickly.

The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and is called "Winter Fairy Haila."  The digital papers are from Echo Park.  I, of course, colored her with Copics.
I added lots and lots of glitter on this one.

Copics:  B01, BG0000, BG000, BG10, C0, C1, E00, E02, R20, Y00, YR20, YR21, YR24

Snow Angel

It's time for Tammy's Scrapin' Corner Challenge #38, "Let It Snow."  I chose this darling image from QKR Stampede called "Making Snow Angels."  I have become quite fond of their images.  The paper is Eskimo Kisses from Basic Grey. 

I must admit that this was quite a rushed card.  My work area happens to be my dining room table.  Since my last company left yesterday, I haven't had time to reassemble everything the way it was so I didn't have my area set up for photographing or anything else for that matter. Therefore, the lighting was pretty bad.  I did the photography over and it's a little better.

Fruit Basket

 This is my final Thanksgiving card for this year.  I created this for Challenge #37 at Tammy's Scrapin' Corner:  Anything Thanksgiving or Fall.  This image, Flower Basket,  is from Floppy Latte and is available at Stitchy Bear.

I just ran to the store to pick up cardstock before starting this card.  I had absolutely no brown cardstock left.  If you notice, I didn't even use the brown cardstock in this card, but it was a fun trip anyways.  I found this delightful paper.  It's called Autumn Harvest Dotted Spice by The Paper Company.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  The lace is from JoAnn's.

For "Use it Tuesday," my hoarded supply is the gold cardstock.

This was another card that used quite a variety of Copics.

Bountiful Harvest

I am so enjoying design team work again!  I didn't realize how much I had missed it.  It's time for a new challenge at Tammy's Scrapin' Corner.  This week is challenge #35, Anything Fall.  .I used this gorgeous image "Bountiful Harvest" from A Day for Daisies.  The paper is from Graphic 45.  I really love this particular paper so I bought lots. 

I used quite a lot of Copic markers on this one:

BG05, BG09, C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, C9, E11, E13, E15, E17, E18, E21, E31, E33, E35, E40, E42, E43, E55, R17, Y17, YG03, YG05, YG06, YR68

The sentiment was found on a blog that I just discovered:
 I came across her on Etsy and then visited her blog.  Her work is absolutely amazing.  I am in awe.  Anyways, she had this sentiment as a freebie on her blog and I thought it would be ideal for this card.  

I decided to add the feathers and brads as a final touch.  I didn't have brads in the correct shade of turquoise so I colored them with a marker.  The feathers I have had in my stash for a while just waiting for the right card to come along.
