This is another image from Mo's Digital Pencil for Splitcoat's Christmas Card Challenge for May, Clothing.  I did this picture once before, but without the dog. 

First Santa for 2024

 

This is my first Santa for 2024.  I am entering it in the Christmas Card Challenge for May at Splitcoast, Clothing. The image is by Renata Berta Art on Etsy.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  The paper is from Stampin' Up.



New CCC Challenge card for May

 

This is the fitsy of my May CCC cards for Splitcoast.  The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  The image is colored with Copic markers.  I had some slight oopsies on this one so I covered them up with snowflakes.  I rather like the way they look!

 

 


This card is my first attempt at water coloring.  The original looks so pale compared to my coloring with my Copic markers.  I was able to brighten it up a bit in my photo program.  Unfortunately, that does not help in real life.  Not only did I not like my painting I spilled an entire cup of paintbrush water on my craft desk.  Geez!  This card was made with the Spellbinder's Better Press system.

Finished all my April cards in March!

 

Here are all my April cards for Splitcoast Christmas Card Challenge.  The theme for April is Creatures.  All images are from Mo's Digital Pencil and are colored with Copics and pencils.  On to some desperately needed birthday cards now that I'm ahead!






Pa Rum Pum Pum Pum

 

 This is another favorite of my Mo's digital Pencil Christmas images.  This is my final card for the March Christmas Card challenge at Splitcoast.  Next up is Critters for April.  I have some cute Mo's images lined up for that!  This image was colored with Copics and pencils.

Almost done with March cards!

 

I used an image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  She is colored with Copics, pencils and pastels.  This is the third time I attempted coloring her.  The other two I threw away.  I followed the Mo's coloring of her this time.  This one I still don't like, but I thought I would put her on a card and see if I liked it any better.  Slightly better. I think this image will be retired for me now.  I also read this week that Mo requests that the watermarks be put across the image to prevent theft.

Snowy Friends

 
This my third card for the children theme at Splitcoast CCC.  I chose this cute image by Mo's Digital Pencil.  I love the adorable snowman.  I have had this paper in my stash for years so I no longer remember who it is from.  I colored the image with Copic markers.
 
 
 
 

 
 

Paper and Boxes are More Fun!

It feels good to be making some cards again!  This is my second card for the March challenge which is children.  This is an image by Mo's Digital Pencil.  I colored him with Copic markers and pencils.  I think I did this image once before, but threw it in the circular file.  I remember having a really difficult time with it.  This time I enjoyed the coloring.  Not doing DT's really relieves the pressure.  Especially when it is an image or theme that I don't really care for.

I think I might actually look fora challenge or two to put it into.  I haven't done that in ages.


I am entering it in the following challenges:

The Holly and the Ivy - Anything Christmas Goes

Merry Little Christmas Challenge -  Anything Christmas Goes

Peace On Earth Christmas Challenge - Christmas themed





This is My First March Card

 

 

This is my first card for the March Christmas challenge at Splitcoast.  I used a Mo's digital Pencil image that I have used a couple tomes already.  I never get tired of it.  I colored her with Copics and pencils.  The background is corrugated paper.  I haven't put on a sentiment yet.  I may or may not.

Final February Cards for Christmas Challenge - Carolers

 

These are my last three cards for the February Christmas Challenge at Splitcoast.   All of the images are from Mo's Digital Pencil.  The first and last are colored with Copics.  The second card is a pre-colored digi. I am getting caught up finally with the cards I had to make.  I hope to visit everyone's blogs soon to see what you have been up to.

 

 

 

 

 


Elves Caroling

 

This is my second card for the Splitcoast Christmas Challenge.  The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I colored it with Copics and pencils.  The paper is from Stampin' Up.  Trying to get mu mojo back.  I have two more cards to go for February, but off to clean the fish tank...yuck!

February and March Cards, Part1

 I have not been in the mood to participate in any challenges lately.  Life is simply too busy.  I have been working on my February Christmas cards for Splitcoast Stampers.  I also have to make a total of eight birthday cards for March.  March also includes St. Patrick's Day and Easter.  Needless to say I need to get a headstart.

 
The card above is for the February Christmas Card Challenge at Splitcoast.  I used an image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I'm surprised I was able to color it.  My vision is absolutely awful lately.  I colored the image using Copics, pencils and pastels.



 
The three cards above for some male birthdays that are coming up in March..  I used dies from Spellbinders.  The birthday greeting is inside.  The tag on the jar says "For You."   I thought these jars were so cute.  I have been collecting Spellbinder dies for years and have not used most of them.  Now that my eyesight is failing, cards made with dies are a lot easier to use.

 

This birthday card was made by using a Stampin' Up die set.  It's a tackle box.  Boy, those double layered stamps were a real pain to do. 

The final card was made with Stampin' Up dies, also.  I ended up really liking this one


Splitcoast January Christmas Challenge - Cookies

                    The January Christmas card  challenge from Splitcoast Stampers is Cookies.  I chose these images from Power Poppy.  They are colored with Copic markers.  The last image is also from Power Poppy.  It's been in my stash already colored for about a year.  I thought I should probably finally do something with it.
     
               

 



I do apologize for the blurry images.  I can't see well enough to get them clear.  I have tried and tried.  I give up.  At least I know the originals are clear!

Some Valentine's Cards for the Grandchildren

I have not been making very many cards lately.  My coloring skills are almost non-existent and my vision is absolutely awful. It's very frustrating. I am due to get new glasses in another month.  Hopefully, that will help some.  I have been struggling with life lately. On top of some physical problems, helping to take care of grandchildren is taking somewhat of a toll at my age..  I do apologize for not visiting blogs.  I have kind of taken myself out of the card world temporally.  I have worked on a few Christmas cards which I need to post, but the photography was quite awful.  I need to take another shot at photographing them
I hope everyone is doing well.  I will try to get by some blogs soon.  
i think of you all quite often..
 
 
  
 
These two pre-colored images are from Mo's Digital Pencil.  They are supposed to be stickers, but they printed out perfectly well as an image.   I made this two for Lucas and Ethan.
 
The next two are cut from My Silhouette Cameo.  They are for Logan and Aidan.  They are much younger so I didn't want to give them a card with monsters on it.
