Fun Creating a Snowman

I have used a sketch from Mojo Monday

I chose the square card and pretty well stayed with the sketch - not much deviation.  

The stamp is from Lilli of the Valley and the DP is from K&Company.  I used a plain silver cardstock as a frame for each section. The silver braid was rather thick, so I used pop-dots behand the center section of the card to fit over it.  I used some clear glitter glue on the fur on the hats & boots, but it does not show in this photo, so I took a close up hopefully it shows here.

I like to use a sketch for a change it makes it easier to decide right away what you are going to do for the front of your card! 
We do have a little snow on the ground, but not enough to stop you from getting around.  This weather and the date on the calendar do make me think my Christmas Cards should be done soon!  I received my first card in the mail yesterday, but I never send them out that early.

Wedding Party

Lilli of the Valley have such wonderful images for weddings - I had recently bought some of their stamps with two such stamps among the ones I purchased.  This was a second marriage for the bride and groom, being an older couple they decided to get married out of town, in a place where the bride had lived before.  I was going to use the stamp with the guy in the Tall hat and the bride in the long dress.  But when I heard that when they came out of the church after the wedding there was a horse and carriage waiting at the curb to take them on a tour of the city (Montreal) I decided that this was the stamp I was going to use.  Five of us, who had been friends of theirs for years were invited to a dinner they were hosting in town a couple of weeks after the wedding.  I made this card for our group.
We decided to give them a gift of a stay in Niagara on the Lake and a wine tour and their choice of a bottle or two of wine. Thus the wine bottle inside the card an image from Patti Gomez.  The card front was colored with copics and the inside on the backside of the vellum with pencil crayons.  The sentiment was a stamp from Inkadinkado and the butterflies and ribbon were from my stash.

I put pale green cardstock, the same as I used on the front of the card on the top and bottom, and then adhered the one sheet of vellum over them.

Last night we went to the dinner, and even though it was snowing so hard you could hardly see when we drove to the hall, it had stopped by the time we were ready to leave.  There were about 80 people at the dinner and we all had a wonderful meal and there was lovely music from a guitar player and a great vocalist during the meal and for the rest of the evening.  I would say a good time was had by all.

Texting Teenager

Mo Manning Digital Image who looks like most of my teenage grandsons these days.  Eyes down, phone in hand.  It seems they often have a never ending text conversation with someone who also likes to text!

I have eight grandsons, so I always seem to be making another card for a boy.  Love them all, the boys that is!
I colored the image with copics, the DP, the words and the bird are all from DCWV.

Lets play Hockey

This cutie Hockey Player is a digital image from Kenny K and is for my daughters birthday.  She plays hockey with a group of women from Hamilton usually on a Sunday night.  Don't know how she gets up for work on the Monday morning after.  She always wears a helmet when playing and does not wear shorts- but long pants down to the skates!  She says she does wear her ball hat after the game!

I coloured the image with Copics.  The sentiment, the DP, cardstock Hockey word and the Puck are from my stash.

When the Girls Get Together

Well, cold weather for the last week, and I already have a cold which I hope I can get rid of soon!  But that being said, if I'm going to be inside I might have more time for crafting.  I worked on this card to-day and I kind of like it!

Bugaboo digital images are always fun to work with, I know my daughter in law likes wine, so I hope she enjoys this card for her Birthday.  I used a Spellbinders Die to Cut around the images which I coloured with copics.  Added Glossy Accents to the eye glasses as well as the wine glasses and bottles.  Don't know if that shows in the picture.  The sentiment comes with the image, though when I made it smaller, my computer changed the Font.  The DP is from Paper Pizzaz and the ribbon is from my stash.

Hope everyone has a great week-end!
