Sleigh Ride


I used images from Jan's Digi Shop for this card.  I also, basically followed her tutorial.  I used pencils and pastels for the background.  I am kind of disappointed that the glitter I put on the trees didn't photograph well at all.  I plan on trying this one again soon. 

 Right now I'm working on a Stampin' Up card.  I've had four tries so far to line up the stamps correctly.  All were an epic fail.  I plan on trying two more times and then give up if I still cannot align the stamps.  I have even been using my Stampin' Up Stamparatus to no avail!  Seems I am in the land of declining skills.  Very frustrating!

Angel with Duckling


Time for a new challenge at Morgan's Art World Challenge Blog.  I used this adorable image Fae Angel and Baby Duck.  I have used this image several times before.  It's one of my favorites.  I colored the image with Caran D'Ache and Luminance pencils. I believe the paper came from Hobby Lobby.

Halloween Cards for the Grandkids


  This card was done with distressed inks and a Spellbinder's die set. I also used some Stampin' Up tree stamps.

For this card I used the Spellbinder's Glimmer System to do the spider webs and a die set to do the car.  The main car is a die set and many different holiday dies are available to add to the car.  Of course, I had to get most of them.

I didn't think of making Halloween cards early enough.  Next year I'll be sure to get Logan in there.  Here he is in his first costume.  What a cutie. 

Here's Lucas and Ethan with Mom and Dad on their way to Trunk or Treat.
