Amanita Muscaria


This card is for the newest challenge at Farm Quest Challenge Blog.  The theme this time is Frogs, Toads or Mushrooms.  I chose this lovely image from Power Poppy.  Of course, it was one of the very few that I don't own.  I colored the image with Copic markers and surrounded the image with pastels.

Hearts for Mothers' Day

 This card is for Heart's Quest Challenge Blog. I used an image from QKR that I got while I was on their design team, but never ended up using.  The challenge is to make a Mother's Day Card and include hearts.  This image fit the bill perfectly.  I colored it with Copic markers and Stickles were added to the edges of the hearts.  

New Baby Grandson


Here is the card for my newest grandson, Aidan Joseph.  He is a little doll!  I used an image from Connie Fong.  It was colored with Copic markers.

Happy Birthday, Logan!


Here is a birthday card for our grandson, Logan.  He turns two tomorrow.  We already celebrated his birthday last week while we were in Michigan for the birth of his baby brother.  Busy time!

I looked all over the internet for a birthday image specific for a two year old and had no luck.  I decided to search through my pretty vast collection of digital images.   I found this image by Whinsie Doodles which was one of the first digital image sets I ever bought.  Having two candles, it was ideal.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  The paper was from a very old paper

Easter Train


This is my March 14th entry in the Heart's Quest challenge.  The theme this time is Easter and the card must include a heart.  I added a small heart ti the train engine.  I used a cute die set to make the train.  Unfortunately, I do not have the manufacturer.  I searched online and can no longer find it.  I cut a few of these for Easter cards for my grandsons.  They took forever to cut.  I imagine the rest will take about that long to put together.

Farm Quest Challenge


I  made this card for Farm Quest's challenge, anything goes. This dies are by The Greetery called Rolling Hills, Countryside, and Tree Details Die.  It is quite interesting to cut and put together.It took a very long time.  It was fun for a change. .I plan on making another using different accessory dies, but it will be a while before I get around to it.


 This is my CT entry for the April 1 Morgan's Art World Challenge Blog.  I had such a difficult time with the shading and lighting on this one.  I tried to fix it so many times.  I finally gave up.  I used the image Fantasy Fae 8.  The image is colored with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.  I'm just glad it's off my list of cards to make.  I have so many cards to make prior to my trip to Michigan.  I am not doing well with stress right now!
