After I finished up several note cards, I dove into one more card!  I was looking for a vertical saying, but didn’t want to spend a lot of time digging through the many stamp sets to find one.  During my hunt I came across this Changito set and I decided to use the monkey!

I used the sketch from my new issue of PaperCrafts Magazine!  I recognized many names in there this month!! Congrats on all of you who were published!!!

Stamps:  Stampendous Changito Chrismtas, Mona Lisa Moments- Christmas Sayings (CHF)

Paper: Burgundy, BG Eskimo Kisses DP

After I got done with the Friendly Critters cards I had another sketch in mind for a Christmas card.  My daughter decided to join me in the card making process as well.  It was fun hanging out with her in the craft area, creating together!  Here is the quick Christmas card that I put together!

I’ve been pretty worn out, but doing well!  My house is a 2 story with 11-13 steps between each floor!  I’ve been getting pretty sick of the same 4 walls in my room, but my craft space is in the basement….2 floors down!  Besides the fatigue factor, I’ve had a lot of headaches from the medication that I’m on.  Headaches and stamping don’t really work well together!  I kind of thought I’d get a lot done during this time, but not so much!  Anyway, I decided the other night that as long as I was just sitting I could at least be coloring something!  I have several stamps that have yet to be used, and sometimes when you’re in the creating mood, you’re not necessarily in the mood to take the time to color!

Here are 2 of the images that I finished the other night and turned them into cards today!

This image is called Frosty Friends and it is from Tom Allen’s collection of Friendly Kritters from Cornish Heritage Farms!  I LOVE his images and am glad I took the time to color a few!!!   I added liquid applique to the “snow” areas and added some glitter to it while it was still wet.  Then I heat set it with my heat gun and watched it puff up!!

I colored this with my Copic Markers.  I used the following colors:

R59, B00, E31, E33, G05, C3, R20, O Blender

The cardstock colors are Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Pomegranate, White, Glorious Green

Accessories used:  Cuttlebug EF snowflakes, Nestabilities, dimensionals, Liquid Applique, Glitter, sponges

Here is the second image.  It’s called “O Christmas Cone.”   This design I kept rather simple and I love the look of the lattice die cut behind the image!  I also colored this with my Copic Markers.

Copic Marker #’s:  E51, E35, E02, RV10, E31, E29, R39, Y15, YG11

Accessories Used:  Nestabilites, SU Lattice Die Cut, Ribbon, Dimensionals

I’m so glad I finally got to create something!  I really have missed it and hope to keep the momentum going forward!
