Christmas in July

I love Christmas cards and I look forward to Christmas in July, so I could use my Christmas stamps and digital images.  I chose “Christmas Penguin” by Sasayaki Glitter to color up and enter into a couple of challenges.

Flowers in the Spring

I printed out “Tulip Border” by Sheepski Designs and my sister took my copy to color for herself.  She colored her image using Spectrum Noir colored pencils.  I suggested to her to trim it out and pop it up on the card base.  She told me “don’t tell me how to make my card.  Just like you don’t like me telling you how to make yours”.  Okay I took my suggestion and made my card!

Birthday Seals

When I saw this adorable image by Sasayaki Glitter called “Baby Seals”, I quickly thought about San Francisco’s Pier 39.  I had to give them something to sit on so I drew in the wood planks like the ones you find at Pier 39 in San Francisco.  I think it is a perfect birthday card for a little boy.

Happy Birthday from all of us

Fun in the Sun

I don’t know how to swim, but I do love getting into the water.  This is definitely the way to enjoy summer.  I will be giving this card to my sister-in-law for her birthday.  She is the one with the pool.

I am using “Gloria” by Mo’s Digital Pencil.




I enjoy that we had a whole month of mermaids.  This is actually my 2nd mermaid that I have colored.  One of the challenges is a one layer card.  It has been a long time since I have created a one layered card.  The image is called “Dolphin Mermaid” by Cute As A Button.

Grape Hat

Today I colored up “Jr Hatter Grape” by Little Miss Muffet for their Challenge #189 Anything Goes –  It did not take me too long to color but I should had paid attention to the size.  The image is almost bigger than my card base.  I am going to color her again, but in a smaller version and different colors.

Perfume Fabulous

I combined the “Fabulous” die cut by MFT with the image “Perfume Jar” by Sandi’s Samples, not realizing that Fabulous is actually a perfume line.  I am a Bath & Body Works body spray person.

I had a rough time putting this card together.  Ink on my fingers made it to the design and I covered it up with the enamel dots.  Spilled too much water on background, so I covered up the left side of my background.


But I am still entering my card into the following challenges:
