Chubby Snowman

 Welcome, 

This snowman must have been in quarantine for a long time.  He definitely gained the covid--19lbs.   Personally I love chubby snowman.  It just makes him more adorable.   

I used my colored pencils to color this card.  I love the way the white colored pencil pops off the darker cardstock.   I think you could use any brand of pencils to do this.  However, for about $2.50 (less if you use a coupon) at Michaels/Joannes you can buy a prismacolor white pencil.   In my opinion, it gives the best creamy white results.  It is a nice thing to have in your stash.  




No copics today- I used my prismacolor pencils to color

Please BEE Mine

Hello again, 

This little girl is so darn sweet.  I loved her bee costume and thought it would be fun to turn her into a Valentine.   I love how the red and yellow play off each other on this card.  This is not a color combo that I use often, but I really like it came together.

My Heart Bounce

Welcome, 

A while back I made a Winnie the pooh and piglet card.  It made me want to make a Tigger card.  He was always my favorite of the Pooh Crew.   With Valentine's day coming I thought it would be fun to have him bouncing through some hearts.   I used a stencil to add hearts to the background of the card.    I love how playful and fun it is.  What do you think?   I'm not sure I'm ready to put away my Winnie the pooh stamps.  We might need to do an Eeyore card next.  

TTFN!
Chris

If it looks like a duck...

Greetings, 

Valentine's day is coming up and I thought it would be a good idea to make a few cards.  I didn't want to do anything too mushy.   I think this fits the bill (Do you see what I did there?).   I hope you enjoy.

Snowy Friend

 Hello, 

It has been a few weeks since I posted.  I took a break from making cards over Christmas.   I managed to finish seven scrapbook layouts.  It felt good to see the finished pages in my book.   I'm hoping to get a few more done this month.  

I put my Christmas stamps away and pulled out my snowman stamps.  Gosh, I love snowmen.  This one is so sweet.  She looks so peaceful.   I love this card in pink, but I might have to explore colors.  What colors would you suggest?
