 I made a card with an image from Sheepski designs called "Walkies" coloured with copic pens, glitter and liquid pearls, then fussy cut and layered onto some patterned paper.

I then added some diecut leaves, ribbon, dragonfly and sentiment.  Finally some purple glitter dotted across the background paper completed my card.  I have always loved the purple/green combination.

 I also got to create an art journal page with an image from My Besties, called "Ellie and Nib Airshow.  I think we probably underestimate how far a postman travels.

Paper Artsy paints for the background, The image has been coloured with copic pens and fussy cut, layered with a spring.  The little houses have been made with scraps of patterned paper, the envelopes hand cut after printing.  The sentiment has been typed and arranged, the birds hand drawn.

Snowman Tag maybe

 Hi everyone, this month's image for The Outlawz , Progressive Freebie is Challenge is Mr Squiggles drawn by Cara.

I decided to practice with my pencils and coloured the snowman with Prismacolour pencils. Firstly to show my husband what ombre was in colouring as our daughter had her nails done last week in blue ombre, but as her father has a form of colour blindness, the subtle changes were not apparent to him, so I made them more prominent.

Couldn't resist adding colour to the yellow nose and rosy cheeks though.  Marker snow and some glitter completed the image.   

Rummaging through a box for a label, I came across a pad of labels I bought a long time ago and I am sorry I can't remember where as I would love to have more of these labels.

At this stage I have made a tag, but maybe I might turn him into a card.  The square at the top with the hole, is perforated and can be removed, leaving the top the same shape as the bottom.

Love is in the Air
Fun in the Snow
Something New

 I've chosen to create with the Christmas theme, using  Hettie's, "Beach Pony Float".  Coloured with copic pens and glitter, layered onto some striped paper.  Would have to say the sentiment is perfect for 99% of our Christmas days, sadly not the recent one, rained all day

A place to Start , 1st January 2024

Happy New Year.  Let's hope 2024 sees as creating more.

The optional theme to start the new year is to make a Gatefold Card.

I haven't made one for years, but think there could be more coming this year, I had great fun using patterned papers from Uniquely Creative and diecuts from 49 and Market.

The Happy Birthday was made with a Stampin Up die, I used 4 layers of white and one layer on patterned paper.
