......wishes you

I wanted to share this card with you that I made using a digital
image I colored using my Copics.  I have always liked coloring but kind of got away from it, but I found Kit & Clowder and it has me all excited about coloring again.  Thanks Crafting Circle for introducing me to Alyce at Kit & Clowder.
More on Kit & Clowder a little later.

I created card following a sketch this week at the CraftingCircle message board.
I embossed the light blue circle using a Darcie cloud embossing folder then took my white ink pad and just wiped it over the raised area to give the clouds a bit of color.  I colored the Cuddly Buddly image using my Copic markers.   They have some pretty cute images, in fact this one is a freebie. 

While we are talking about CuddlyBuddly here is another one I colored up and put on a card, another freebie here too!

I am lovin getting back to coloring and using my rather large investment into Copic markers.  
I have signed up for the Hair & Skin class at Kit and Clowder and am learning alot although I have not completed it yet.  Alyce is fabulous and a great instructor.  She also has a free class called 
Mindful Me that I highly recommend you taking. 
She has a great variety of classes even some using pencils.
I hope you enjoyed my cards and thanks for stopping by.

Some more catching up

Hi, hope everyone is having a great weekend.
I am going to post a few various cards that I have
been working on lately.

Here is a thank you card that opens into a step-card
instead of the plain old center.
The center is a Stampin Up stamp.
and here is the inside.

I love the way the starburst card looks but sometimes they are a bit difficult to get right.  The papers are K&Company papers.

Here is a cute animal shaped card from the Create a Critter cartridge.  I covered part of his body with Fun Flock for more dimension.

And one last one, a diamond fold card.
The turtle image is from NitWits, that I uploaded and cut with my Explore.

Thanks for stopping and taking a peak.  Hope you enjoy the cards I
shared with you today.  Most of them were made playing along with challenges over at the CraftingCircle message board.
Come over and join in the fun, there is a nice variety of challenges.

Pretty butterfly card

Hi, today I have a card to share with you that I made following
the sketch this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Although
I have not done them for quite some time I do love following
a sketch to create a card.

I love the soft colors and how this turned out.
I made the background paper after watching a video
on You Tube from Deanna Paper Crafts.
The butterfly is a Stampin Up stamp that I stamped on watercolor paper and then colored using my Distress Ink pads.
I cut the lacy circle using my Explore and the Sophie cartridge.
This is also one of the sketches for the current challenge going on
at the CraftingCircle message board.  Got till the end
of the month so come on over and play along

Well Hello........

......long time not posting.  
I know it has been quite a while since I last posted and I always want to get back to paying more attention to my blog but it just has not happened.  However now I am going to try real hard to post at least weekly.  Thanks to all those that have followed me and still peak in when I do post.

So to catch up I am just going to post some random cards I have made lately to show you what I have been up to.

First off for a challenge on the CraftingCircle message board a month or so ago we were challenged to use the Bohek method to make some background paper.  I had been wanting to try this so I was glad it same up.
So here is my card that I used my Bohek paper on. 
It was so much fun making the paper and I love the way
it turned out.

Here is a great male card.  I think it is called "triple stamping".
I colored the image with watercolors to give it a more mute look.

A few more that I have made recently.

Well that should get me a start back into blogging, I hope.  See you all real soon
Have a fabulous day.
