~With love at Christmas~

Christmas is quickly coming, and I've been so busy making cards and gifts, that I've neglected my blog.  I thought I'd best fix that and post a photo today.  Sowwwwy about that!!

This darling "Winter Fairy" and her sweet little birdie friend are from Wee Stamps and one of  Sylvia Zet's adorable digi stamps.  It was love at first site for me, and I made many, many of these cards, while at a Scrappy Chicks Retreat in October, to send to friends for Christmas.  She brings a smile to my face every time I lay eyes on her!  I colored the image with my Copics.

Let's see if I can give you the Card Recipe! ;)

Card size:  4.25" x 5.5"

Paper and sentiment:  That lovely red and white snowflake paper is digital paper I found at
Paper Craft Inspirations.  They have tons of downloads to share, including the sentiment on the face of the card.

Embellies:  Green and white half pearls, Jolee's Boutique dimensional stickers (glitzy snowflakes). Stickles, plaid ribbon from "Holiday Inspirations."

Tools used:  Tonic Studios "Royal Fleurs 2 in 1 corner punch.  I didn't need a die for the shape around the image, as I had one in digital format, so simply placed my digital image in the center of the shape, then printed and cut it out.  So easy!!

Remembering which Copics I used may be a bit more difficult, but let me try.  :)
Face:  E00, E000, E21

Cheeks:  R20
Hair:  E39, E99, E18, YR23
Outfit and Boots:  G20, G21, G24
Wings and Wand:  V000, Y00, BV000, BG10, and G20
Bird, Flowers, and Berries:  R29, R35
Leaves:  G28, G29
Shadowing:  C0, C00

Thanks for stopping by to see my card.  I hope you and your family has a Blessed Christmas!!

A Funny Little Christmas Card..

I'm sharing a simple card I made last year.  I've never shared it here on my blog, so I didn't think you'd mind that it was an older card.  ;)  This funny little "Granny" image makes me giggle every time I see her.  I'm not even sure where I got her or who drew her, so if you know, please share the info with me, will you?  I colored her with Copics (I only had a very few then) and Marvy markers, colored pencils, and chalks.

 Card Recipe:

It's a 6" x 6" card
Image:  ?????
Papers used:  Basic Grey Jovial paper pad and white card.
Embellies:  Off-white half pearls and dark red 1/4" ribbon.
Tools:  Fiskars Threading water edge punch and Big Shot with a Cuttlebug "Swiss Dot" folder.

Thanks for taking a peak!  I hope you enjoyed your visit.
