Christmas Cookies

This is my sixth card for CDAC Progressive Challenge series 5.  It is a free image from Digidrawn to use in this challenge.  I have used the image three times on this card, removing one of the cookies to make it look different for the center of the card.  They have been colored with copics.  I did all of the Invitation on my computer and then added the popped up cookies and the metal Noel which is from Hot Off the Press Inc.
The papers and cardstock are from my stash.

The wind angel on a cloud

My fifth card for CDAC Progressive Challenge series 5.  The image "Angel on a cloud" from Just Some Lines By Jehanne.  I chose to use the Irish Blessing on this card thinking of the line - "May the wind always be at your back."  I have kept the card fairly simple, using copics to color the image and the sails of the ship, also, to edge the sentiment which I typed on the computer.  The ship and the anchors are gold stickers from Starform.

Dirt Biker

I know my grandson rides his motor bike in his uncles fields, but I have no idea what the bike looks like!  This is another great digital image from Kenny K,  I think I have used one of his images for every one of my grandsons, there are seven, actually eight, but the last one is only 6 months old!  I had colored the image with copics and cut circles with my coluzzle and the larger circle with my Martha Stewart Cutter.  Added colored cardstock to finish it off.  A fun card to make, now to add something to the inside to make it complete.

Was curling this morning, this is our second week, I have curled five games, all with different people, and I have not had the privilege of buying anyone a drink -  which means I have not been on a winning team yet.  Oh well, hope there are better days ahead.

Thanksgiving Abundance

This is my second card for the CDAC Progressive Challenge, series five.  This fancy turkey image with the pie is from Sew Many Cards.  I have colored the image with copics and added a small amount of glitter.
 The DP is from Debbie Mumm and has glitter on just about everything.  The Background Paper is from my stash.  All in all a very colorful bird!

Thanks so much for visiting, hope you have time to leave a comment, they are very much appreciated.

The Boy and his Frog

A wonderful image for a young boy from Fred She Said.  I have colored the image with copics.  The DP is from K&Company.  Sentiment is a small stamp with no markings.  This is a card I am sending to my nephews son, They live in BC, but we did get to visit with them in Ontario this summer.  I have 4 cards to finish addressing to get in the mail, so I had better get busy.  It was a really cold grey day here to-day, but I understand we are to get some very warm weather again.  Looking forward to that as I don't want to put those golf clubs away yet.

The first card I have made using a Mandela it is a very pretty one from Daisy Doodles Digital Stamps.  This is my 3rd card for the CDAC Progressive Challenge series 4.  I chose to color it with my copics, adding some rhinestones and small pearls.  I have wrapped and tied Satin Rattail Cord to the bottom of the card, which meant I had to pop up the layer the image was on to accommodate the cording.
