OWH more butterflies

Looks like I need to get my blog updated. Here are some more butterflies. Same image, different look. The bottom card used a piece of really old Basic Grey paper. The top 2 I used my new pad which is old, of DCWV Sweet shop. I made several cards with this image. Getting pretty good at making multiples

I have been working on some masculine cards that I will be posting soon

And then I woke up

This is the card I made for my Angela's 49th birthday. I want to do some of these for OWH. I colored with Copics. Added some Diamond Glaze to the umbrella.

The holidays are winding down. Betty goes back to wet Southern CA in the morning. I will get back to eating properly. I have been having pasta and a bit of bread and a couple of pieces of pie and this evening I am up a pound from 2 weeks ago. I can't have that.

My son-in-law replaced my garbage disposal this morning. That gave a nice hit to my pocket book. Then I decided I needed some of that fancy x-press paper to use with my Copics. That was an arm and a leg. I hate to balance my checkbook. The nice thing is I am loving that Michaels has the ATG tape. Been using coupons to buy that. If I was smart I would do that everyday this week. Been using a lot of that tape!

OWH butterflies

I have found myself making cards even with the holidays approaching. Here are 3 with the same colored image but different papers. The digital word art is from TLC. I have no idea of the company that made the butterfly stamp. It was from an image exchange a long time ago. Colored with Copics

The last of my Christmas cards

This is it folks. The end of my Christmas cards. Would you believe with all the paper I have that I bought 7 sheets of Christmas paper on sale today! With all these holiday cards I reached way back in my stash of papers. The new pads by Cosmo Cricket and Cloud 9 were ignored. I hope after Christmas to maybe pick up some embellishments on the cheap.

I have not made any cards for a few days. I do have my Angela's birthday card done but I will wait to post it. I probably won't update here until after Christmas.

I have spent the last few days messing around with my organizing. I bought 2 of the Cropper Hopper carts on wheels that have 10 12" drawers each. I got them on sale at Joannes for a good price. I have also been scanning my stamped images I have gotten from others. I did some cropping and enhancing and have turned them all into pngs. I am looking forward to taking some of the bigger images and doing a smaller version of them.

Fun cards

I see I haven't updated for a few days. Been busy I guess. Here are a couple more cards. The snowman and reindeer were precolored digital images. The little bear was a piece of clip art. I covered him with Diamond Glaze and then roughed it up to look like fur.

I made 4 of these cards. They were all a little different. Sent 3 of them to my grand kids. It was a digital image but I don't know from who. I added Stickles Distress Rock Candy to the snow lines. Added Diamond Glaze to the tree and snowballs.

Done with my holiday cards.

Finished up the last of my cards. I need to get addressed and stamped now. I guess I will post one a day until they are all here. Several I made duplicates of.

I need to get busy with birthday cards now. My Angela's is the day before Christmas. We always do the big celebration on Christmas Eve. I have several birthdays coming up the first 2 weeks in January so time to get with it.

This card was done in 2 versions. One had red crystal lacquer and one had green. They both look real nice.

Finishing up my holiday cards.

I am almost finished with my cards. I figure I have a few more days before I get them in the mail. I need to start getting them uploaded each day. This card was stamped with Stazon on sleek paper. The oversize snowflake I have had for a couple of years in my stash

Christmas Cocoa

I try to post every 2 days. Looks like I forgot yesterday.

This card was made with a digital image from TLC. I colored with Copics. Put some Diamond Glaze on the marshmellows and candy cane.

I have been making lots of holiday cards. I need to get some pictures taken and posted

I am waiting for my granddaughter and family to arrive from Gold Beach which is 4 hours from here. They got a late start. They are coming to the big city to do some gift shopping.

Pink poodles for Christmas

I made this card for my 9 year old grandaughter. The Poodle is a digital image colored with Copics. What little girl doesn't like pink although she told me a few months ago that purple was now her favorite color
