Good morning friends. Goodness... it's less than two weeks until Christmas and I've still got so many images I wanted to work up for cards!!! ACK!! I think some will have to hold over to next year, don't you!! But, I'll get a few of them done. Like this wonderful digital image from Sassy Cheryl's called 'Cappuccino Snowman'.
Isn't he fab-u-lous??? Actually ALL Cheryl's snowman are super cute and so fun to work with. I'll warn you... it'll be very hard to decide which is your favorite!! You may have to get more than one, which you'll see in a few days is exactly what I was forced to do!!! : ) For this card, I decided to switch to my prismacolor pencils and it was really fun to use them again... really fun.
Snowflakes, snowflakes, snowflakes!! I can't seem to get enough of them! I think this is the third card in a row I've added them! Well... I love 'em and think they add lots of wintery character to our creations. These are a little different for me. I bought them Saturday at my favorite stamping/crafting store in Kansas City... Archiver's. They are foam. You folks have probably already seen these, but I'm always a little behind the times! : ) I plopped them on then added a blue gem in their centers.
I also got this great paper at Archiver's. The images about cover them all up, but there are Christmas greeting running through some of the stripes. I really need to get better at figuring out how to size my digis so as not to take up the entire card, but not so small as to make coloring very challenging. Does anyone have some hints? I guess I just have a hard time visualizing.
