I thought this image was really adorable.  The image and greeting are by QKR Stampede.  I have been trying to do their weekly challenges.  This is my third in a row.  I colored the image with Copics.  I used a load of colors this time!  One of these days I have to get my pencils back out.  I don't think I've used them in years.  The digital paper is by Basic Grey.  The ribbon is from Taylored Expressions.  It's one of my favorite.

Another Angel

This is another angel image from Crafts and Me. This one is called Moon.  I haven't quite decided what this card will be used for so I haven't put the greeting on the front yet.  I'm thinking, maybe, Sympathy, but I'm just not sure.  I think this will be my last heavily flowered card for a while. I think I'll aim for a few CAS ones. Although, for me they are more of a challenge.

I colored the image with Copics.  The background was cut with the Silhouette.  The flowers are predominately from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I really need to take some time to work on coloring folds.  I have not been able to master that yet.

Fun Project Today

I made this card for QKR Stampede's latest challenge "Sentiment Only."  I had a very difficult time figuring out what I was going to do so I went on Pinterest and looked up some card sketches.  This is one I found. I actually found quite a few that I liked.  I haven't worked on cards in so long the ideas are hard to come by.  I'm sure it'll get easier.

The digital papers are Carina Gardner.  I used the Silhouette to cut out some of the flowers.  That was quite a bit of fun, but quite time consuming so I added some pre-made flowers so I wouldn't be making them all day.  I added quite a bit of antiquing.  Most of the cards I have been admiring lately have had quite a bit.

Latest Project

I went through my boxes of cards tonight from when I was doing design team work.  I found forty five cards  that I had never finished the insides of.  I went through all my scraps of paper and cardstock and found matching scraps to finish the insides with.  Now onto actually finishing them.  I figure that will only take about a week.  Does anyone one else avoid the insides of cards?

Birthday Angel

This image called Dusk is available from Crafts and Me.  I am hoping to use their image Noon and Twilight sometime soon.  I saw a card colored by CG's Cards 4 U.  She used the gorgeous color combo of red violet and aqua. I chose to go more with the blue violet. I'm trying to build up my birthdat stash.  I actually thought this image would be lovely for a sympathy card, but I need a lot of birthday cards.

Be My Valentine

 I finally made a card just for fun.  I haven't done that in over a year!  A friend just became a DT member for QKR Stampede.  This is her first challenge.  I thought I would  celebrate her achievement by joining the challenge.  I have always loved their images and have tons of them.  But, as usual, I ended up buying an image.  Congrats, Sherri!

The image is, of course, from QKR Stampede.  I colored her with Copics.  I wanted to make a card with lots of stuff attached.  I used my Silhouette for the envelope, doily and heart.  The digital papers are from CartaBella.

Happy Birthday Karena!

This birthday card is for my son's girlfriend, Karena.  She just happens to be an artist.  
She painted us a beautiful oil painting of our grandson for Christmas.

The image is from Saturated Canary.  Papers are from Stampin' Up.  
The splotches are supposed to be paint spills.  Hopefully, that's what they look like.

I colored her with Copics,

First of My June Birthday Cards

This week's project was cleaning my 250+ Copic markers and refilling at least 80 of them.  What a chore that was.  My markers had gotten...
