Fun with Snowmen!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I have so much to be thankful for.  Our Thanksgiving dinner is today.  We have such a big family that it was better to have it on Friday.  I am looking forward to seeing everyone even if I do see a lot of them pretty often.  I used a Sassy Cheryl image today for the Outlawz Alcohol Markers challenge.  Today that challenge is Anything Goes and the twist is Christmas.

Mice Will Play!

This cute image is From The Heart's free monthly image.  It is getting close to month end so thought I had better get it on my blog.  This image can be used for many different occasions, but I am still in need of Christmas cards so that is what I made.  I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Corrosive Challenge:

Welcome to another Corrosive Challenge.  The challenge this fortnight is Happy Holidays.  I am very partial to CC Designs Birgetta images and this is the one I chose.  I think they are so cute.
I am hoping you will join us this next two weeks.  There is glitter on the wings and Stickles on her halo.  My color combo is turqoise and red.  She was colored with Copic markers.

Ready For Some Football!

It's time for another Outlawz Alcohol Markers Challenge!  The challenge is to make a card for a child or Universal Child's Day!  Can't wait to see what you come up with.  The DT did some fabulous cards. I love them all.  I really hope some of you play along this week.  One of my Great Grandsons got this for his birthday.  He was playing in little boys football playoffs the day before his birthday.  They came in second place in the state for their district.  I used one of those fun wobble things under the football so if you move the card the football moves.  The football was cut with my cameo.  He was colored with my copic markers.

Sweet Deer!

I've had this image for several years and it is still one of my favorites.  It was colored with my Copic markers and the papers are from Doodlebug.  I;ve used glitter on the snowflakes.  It is for another Great Grandchild.  I've got company coming in this weekend and staying through Thanksgiving so I do need to get busy cleaning but it is more fun to play on the computer.

Charlie Brown Christmas Tree

I have another Christmas card for a Grandchild or a Great.  I followed the Sketch an Stash #21.  It was a fun sketch to use and I have used a Sassy Cheryl image again.  I've added a little stickles to the star on the tree but it is not showing up.  I colored her with my Copic Markers.  We have some high winds today and are expecting rain so a good day to stay in and color.

Cuddly Owls!

I love these owls.  I am trying to get this card entered in From The Heart sketch challenge before it closes.  I don't know where the time went last week.  It seemed to fly by so fast.  I hope this new week doesn't go so fast or it will be Thanksgiving before I know it.

Spring Day!

Hello on this cool Saturday.  This is a card made with a image from Kenny K.  I made her belt and her necklace gold with stickles and I hope it shows up.   She was colored with Copics.  I used this sketch that  came From The Heart Sketch #40.   They have such fun sketches.
Our weather has turned cold today.  We were in the 60-70 range and it was wonderful but this morning it was in the 30's so time to turn the heat on.  I am not ready to have Winter.  Have a great weekend.
