Little Purple Witch

This image is called Tabitha and it is from Mo's Digital Pencil - isn't she a sweetie clutching her little Teddy Bear!  I don't think I did her justice with my copic colors this time, but I have already given it to Regan so I can't make any improvements now.  I cut around the image leaving white space and then cut the orange cardstock keeping the shape of the image.  The background is DP and the sentiment framed in yellow are from my Halloween stash.

This is the last of my Halloween cards for this year - I think I should start a little sooner next year!

The Littlest Pirate

This sweet image is from Mo Manning's Digital Pencil.  The card is for our youngest grandson Colton who was two in May. I enjoyed a nice visit with him to-day after I picked him up at day care he had dinner with us and then his mother came to pick him up a couple of  hours later.

I colored the image with copics - framed it with most of the background colors after I had cut him out.  The DP is from my stash and the Sentiment Sticker is from Crafty Secrets.  Colton is coming by to-morrow night with his sister Rachel in their costumes - can't wait!

Shades of Halloween

All of the colors of halloween:  Orange, purple, green and of course black.  A great Halloween image from Sassy Studio Designs with an ugly spider on a web!  I have colored her in copics.  Used a sticker sentiment, DP and some cutouts from a piece of DP all from my stash.

Just returned from the doctor's office for my husband re his Parkinsons and he is doing much better seems to have levelled out and has had no falls since his last visit.  If things remain the same, we will not have to make another visit for six months instead of three.  It is a beautiful sunny day - not too cold!

Bat Girl

This bright orange cutie is from Pollycraft and her name is Luna Bitterfrost a card for my grandaughter Jessica.  The image is colored with copics.  I have framed the image with black and added 2 DP from my stash behind her.  The bat sticker is from my stash.  The spider stamp is from Making Memories and the sentiment sticker and ribbon are both from Recollections.

Halloween cards are fun to make, but I really did leave them to the last minute this time.

Halloween Wicked Witch

For grandaughter Rachel this wonderful witch from Mo's Digital  Pencil.  When I use the term wicked I mean in a good way! ( The way teenagers use that word meaning something amazing to them!)  I have colored the image with copics.  For the background I have added a strip of sequin waste over DP from my stash.  The Sentiment is also from my Halloween stash.

The sentiment is really not that dark, but taking photos in the evening is not the best thing to do.  I know the cat should be black, but too hard for me to color that way!

The Presents

This little sweetheart with the gifts is a stamp from Lilli of the Valley, she was such fun to color with my copics.
I used a sketch from  CLP Sketch Challenge which I was going to use when it was first shown on their blog, but a computer not working properly prevented that.  But, I thought it a very interesting sketch so I am using it now.  All of the DP are from DCWV,  I used four different sheets from the same pad.  I added lace to both sides and around the music piece.  The lace and the pink flower at the bottom of the card are stickers that have been in my stash for a very long time. The corner die cut is from Marriane Design and the perky little blue bow is also from my stash.


We should be nice and cosy this winter as we are having a new furnace, air conditioner and hot water heater installed to-day and they will finish the job to-morrow, but the furnace is running - good thing - as it may go down to 2 or 3 degrees tonight.  No hot water until tomorrow though!

A White Truck

The image of this white truck is from Doodle Pantry.  My grandson is having a birthday and as he is the owner of two trucks at the moment I thought I'd use one of them for the theme for his 20th birthday card!
One is white the other older one is beige.

This was fun to do, I used Paper Adventures Diamond Dust DP for the background.  The DP is black and has very fine particles of sparkling green dust on it.  ( It does not show too well in the photo, think I need a light box.)  I cut the truck out of white cardstock and added some color with copics.  The windows and headlights were given a coat of Ranger's Glossy Accents.  The sentiments are from TLC and I think they are perfect as his mother says he spends too much time in the garage!  I framed the image with white cardstock after I had stamped around the edges with docrafts Urban Stamp - sprockets and gears.

It's hard to believe I have three grandsons this age now, seems like only yesterday they were toddlers!
Every one is different, but all are enjoyable to be with.

The Good Fairy Glinda

This wonderful image is one that I won from Sassy Studio for a comment  in a blog hop.  It will be a Birthday Card for my nieces daughter who would like to be an actress - she is 11.  She is going to have the lead in the play Babes in Toyland in their local theatre in Ohio.  I hope her dreams come true, I know she will work hard.

 I have colored the image with copics and silver pen, but I have paper pieced her dress with the same DP as the border of the card.  The jewel swirls are from my stash.

Fish Tales

Here I go with another Kenny K digital image - I do like to work with them because I know my grandkids enjoy them.  This one is for my nephews son who is seven.  I selected this one, because this is about the age that my children used to come home from shopping with Dad with a clear plastic bag with goldfish to put in a fish bowl and when they got older we always had an aquarium.

I colored the image with copics, using Rangers Glossy Accents on the bag with the fish.  The die cut is from Spellbinders, I edged the white one with my copic marker.  I cut the yellow one out of foam, because I thought it would add a little depth without a lot of weight.  The DP is from Recollections and the yellow corner brads are from my stash.  I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock which I mounted on orange corrugated card stock.

Just part of a Triathalon

My youngest son loves to compete in triathlons even though he does not have time to get much practice in these days.  They start with a swim - then a bike ride -  and finally a run to the finish line.  I was amazed the first time I saw everyone start out in the water - and then to see most of them cross the finish line - it was awesome!

So I thought I would use this great digital image from Just Inklined for his birthday card.  I have colored the image with copics.  The background is a picture that I took of the sky from our backyard, catching only the tops of the trees,  I added a strip of black cardstock at the bottom of the card for the road. Put some Rangers Glossy Accents on the water bottles, added a sentiment and it was done!

Had a few computer problems so first post in a long time.  I had someone lined up to fix the problem and then after about five days, he told me he was too busy to do it - I won't be calling on that business again!
