I started by picking out a cute little image to color and went with sweet little Hattie, who is from DigiStamp Boutique and is dressed in a perfect little winter outfit. I colored her up in lots of shades of blues and blue greens along with lots of wonderful glitter for sparkle and shine. My border is another wonderful die from Memory Box, which was one of the first I bought for Christmas Cards. Oh and speaking of Christmas Cards, we are having a fun year-round inspiration challenge each week over at Crafting by Designs that is called "Getting Ready for Christmas". The goal is to create at least one new card each week and inspires us all to make a head start for the following year. It's a perfect way to stock up and also is great for those of us, who create cards for Operation Write Home.
This is the card that I created for both challenges and I'm also submitting it to the Monthly Customer Challenge over at DigiStamp Boutique, which you'll find on their blog HERE!!
My next card was created for today's new Color Combo Challenge being hosted over at The Outlawz Group. This week Rox has come up with a pretty color combination and twist and I am sharing it with you here, to inspire you to join us.
While in my yellow mode, and using up more of the papers I had pulled for the first card, I came up with a second card to share. For this one, I found some yellow tulle in my stash and added that under my flowers as another layer and for some more dimension and texture
And as the very end, I colored up another little Marcie image that was left over from one of yesterday's cards. I colored her in the combo colors and quickly put together this very sweet little notecard. The sentiment is also from Lori Boyd and part of a collection I bought some time back. It's also the song I used to sing to my boys when they were little and every time I hear it, I think back of those fond memories...it makes me smile and feel very happy!!!
I'm off now to clean my Copics and try to work on another page in my Smash Book. Did you know we also have a new Smash Book/Journal group over at Color Me Creative? Yes, we do and it's been a fun way to find inspiration and ideas for my book. I have not accomplished too much in mine, but I really enjoy the group and you are welcome to join us too! You'll find us HERE in the main classroom and this too is a FREE group and like the Copic Challenge Group, it's open to ALL!!
See you all tomorrow! I'll be off in the morning as I am heading out to have my nails done, but will be back and working on my Surprise!! Stay tuned!!!
