Warm and Cozy Tilda


It has been a long while since I'd dipped into my Tilda stamps.  I wanted to color this up last Christmas, but time got away from me.  I made sure it was the first image I inked up this year.  I made a set of three cards.  They all are a little different.  I think the "Sending you the Warm Thoughts" one is my favorite.  Does one grab you more than the others?

Copics used:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13, E21
Brown: E40, E41, E42  and E44, E47
Red: R29, R24, R14
white: C3, C1
Deer: E30, E31, E33

Wrapped in Holly--House Mouse


I saw a few other people coloring up this image.  I'm not sure what the name of it is.  It is a really old House Mouse stamp.  I've had it years and I had never inked it up.  I felt inspired by everyone else and I thought I'd share my take on it.    I tried something new with the holly.  I added some some blue into the leaves to give it the holly a more realistic look.   What do you think?

I'm entering this into the house mouse challenge.  If you haven't you should pop on over and see the cards from the other talented ladies:

Happy Howlidays

Hello friends,

You all know I'm a dog person.  I was so excited that Mama Elephant released a dog version of this Christmas tree.  I made the background by splattering white pigment ink and glitter onto a Navy cardstock.  The camera never picks up the sparkle.  You will have to trust me that this card shines.

Turkey -Reveal Wheel

Hello friends,

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I wanted to get a few turkey cards in before it was too late. 

I used Lawn Fawn's reveal wheel to make this card to the layout of this card.  I love this die it makes creating this type of card easy.

Bushels of Fun


Fall is starting to fade here in New York.   We are working on getting the leaves cleaned up before the snow falls.   This is always an event in our house.  We have two dogs that LOVE  to run and wrestle in the piles of leaves.  As fast as we can rake them up, they are redistributing them.  Throw a toddler into the mix and it is nothing short of an comedy act.
