Christmas in July

Standard

Even though I am strongly in the camp of ‘consumer’ Christmas   not being allowed to start until night closes on Thanksgiving, as a card maker, Christmas starts in July.  This super fun card is one of the first designs I’m working on for the Christmas season.  This image is great and I really went all out to make the lights pop on this card.  Each light bulb was colored with Copic markers, highlighted with opaque white, given some dimension with glossy accents then given a glow with corresponding Copic 3-zero markers.  This card just screams holiday fun to me.

Pawsome Birthday

Standard

Ohmygoodness! Ohmygoodness! I have been waiting over a week to post this card so the birthday girl wouldn’t see it before she received it.  I totally fell head over heels for this set “Fetching Friendship”, a new release from Newton’s Nook Designs. This adorable doggy was perfect to make a card for an aunt who has had some lovable canine furbabies through the years.

Just Because

Standard

Today was one of those days, nothing particularly fantastic happened, but nothing particularly icky happened either, so I should thank my lucky stars for that.  After the normal evening routine and getting the kids to bed, I decided tonight was a night to color just because.  I’ve had this great stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs for a little over a week and I was itching to work with it.  I have to love a company that is named after a kitty.  With four of my own kitties here at home, I was challenged to color a likeness of one of  them.
