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.
