Done with Purple for now!


This image is by Power Poppy.  I have been in the mood to color their images lately.  I colored this one with Copic markers.  I don't know why I've made so many purple themed cards lately.  I don't even really care for the color, but here it is anyways.  

The next card is by Power Poppy, also.  This image was a real pain to photograph.  The gold just shone too much.  I tried to pick an image where the glare was not too bad.  I'm having fun with my new camera (a birthday gift to myself.)  My old digital finally died after about eleven years.

Potted Pear Tree


It's time for a new Progressive Freebiechallenge at The Outlawz.  It's a month long challenge.  The above image is by Jan's Digital Stamps.  It is available for the asking.  I colored the image using Copics and Prismacolor pencils.  The die cuts are by Tim Holtz.  Come on over and join

Getting Carried Away wih Christmas


The first two cards are from the newest Power Poppy release.  I am enjoying using them.  It was a huge release so expect more.  The owl done in lilac was done with red the other day.  I actually prefer the red.

 The next image is from Lili of the Valley.  It's such a sweet image.

Christmas Owl

 One more for the stash.  This image is also from Power Poppy.  They came out with a huge number of images recently.  I bought them all and the forgot to download them.  I finally got around to it today.


Let There Be Peace On Earth

 I am definitely in Christmas mode.  I have a few more that I want to get done then I may try something different.  This image is by Power Poppy.  I tend to use it at least once every Christmas.  I could not get the glitter picture to photograph very well.  I am looking forward to getting all my new cards to the 2021 Christmas Card Challenge at Splitcoast.

 Fortunately, coronavirus and card making seem to go well together.

More 2021 Christmas Cards

Here are some more Christmas cards for 2021.All of the images are from Mo's Digital Pencil.  The  papers are from Stampin' Up.





My Chemo Patient Has Passed

 I have such a heavy heart tonight.  My Chemo patient passed away today.  I hope I gave him a little comfort knowing I cared.

My First 2021 Christmas Cards.


I worked on Christmas cards even after I had enough to mail.  Some of these I like and some I do not.  I don't know which ones I will use next year.  As soon as Splitcoast opens up it's 2021 challenge I will add them there.  This first card I made for the current Outlawz Festive Friday Cahllenge.  It is a pre-colored image by Fred She Says.

This was made from an actual rubber stamp.  A cardland friend used it to make a card several years ago.  I admired it so much I searched for the stamp.  This does not compare to hers.

The two cards above are made from a stamp set by Sunny Studio.  The set needs to be stamped many times over.  Even though I got close the images are not stamped directly on top of each other.  I will practice more with these.  I love this stamp.  The jingle bell s so realistic.

 This is a house mouse stamp that I have tried many times, but was never happy with it.  This time I colored it with pencils and like it a bit more.  This one managed to avoid the trash can.

This one I have tried to color with markers in the past with disastrous results.  This one is in pencils and I will use it. The Wisemen are by Just Inklined.

This is a Mo's Digital Pencil image and I actually love this one.  It is colored with Copics.

 This image is by Sherri West Art.  It was the Tuesday Colour Challenge at The Outlawz.  The truth be told.  I would not put these colors together in a million years, but, hence the challenge.  I usually toss cards like this when I finish them, but this one is growing on me!

That's it for now.  Time to go rest.  I managed to get Covid from a family member.  It's very mild so far, five days in to symptoms..  I hope it stays that way.
