The Cottage

A Birthday Card for a friend - I chose this lovely cottage on a river scene.  The image is from Two for Tuesday; I printed it on some very soft pink and white DP from DCWV , a Wedding Print paper.  The flowered DP is from GCD studios.  The edge punch is from Martha Stewart, the flower from  Bazzill Basics, the ribbon and tiny rose are from my stash.  A nice change from using copics on all of my cards. ( But I really do love my copics!)
The scene looks so pleasant as we still have snow on the ground here!

Cupcake Party

A sweet Lili of the Valley digital image which I think is suitable for a female of any age!  Image Colored with copics.  The die cut is from Nellie's Multi Frame's.  The DP is from DCWV.  The sentiment is from Netty's Cards.  The pearls from Crafts.  The die cuts with the lace and ribbon are all from my stash.

Having another winter storm here, but not nearly as much snow as the last one.  Went curling the last two mornings, spared for two different teams -  lost one game, won the other - but always a good time!

Girl & Kitty

Outlawz Challenge for February 11th is to case a card from the DT  I chose a card of Sandra van Blaricum's to Case.  The card can be seen here -

I chose to do my card in a similar design, but used a different 3-D image by Christine Haworth Designs; a girl with a watering can and a cat instead of a dog.  I mounted the image on a die cut from Spellbinders.  Stamped a Happy Birthday Sentiment on the top of the card.  Instead of lace and shirred ribbon, I added a piece of cardstock with ribbon running through it.  Sandra had some beautiful stitching down the left side of her card, but I chose to add butterfly peel offs - Magenta Style on that side.  The DP is from My Minds Eye.
Think my choice of red may be a little overpowering, but I think the little girl I'm sending it to will enjoy it!

Started to make this post last night, but my company arrived for the weekend so I am just trying to complete the post - everyone else has gone to bed.

Party Hardy

This cute little digital image is from Saturated Canary, I will be entering it in the CDAC Challenge, One, Two, Three. The sponsor is Nana Vic's Digitals.
           1- Flower from Petaloo
            2- Designer Papers from my stash.

Image is colored with copics.  Sentiment is computer generated.  Ribbon from stash.
Chose bold colors as she looks so sassy!

Had a nice visit with my youngest grandson to-day, he stayed overnight and then spent the day while mom and dad went out.  He will be two in May - so nice to see the changes as they grow, starting to talk quite a bit and likes to repeat words that you say.  Anytime you give him something he likes he says - Happy Happy.  Anyway - we had a great time playing Hockey with his mini sticks and a soft ball!

Christmas Candle

My second card for Lady Anne's Christmas Card  Progressive Challenge.   This very pretty image was from Crafting With Jack.  I colored it with copics.  The designer cardstock is from K & Company.  The sentiment is from Savvy Stamps.  The edge punch is from Martha Stewart.  It is so nice to get a head start on this years Christmas Cards, as I am usually a do it at the last minute kind of person.

We are suppose to get a giant snow storm here over the next couple of days, but so far we have had only a light dusting.  Hope that the weatherman is wrong!  Even though it has been extremely cold here it makes it very easy to get around when there is no snow.

O Little Town of Bethlehem

My first card for Lady Anne's Christmas Challenge.  It is a progressive challenge, the first two digital images we received were from Crafting with Jack.  If we make cards using both of these images, we will receive a further two images for the next months challenge.  If not, we can buy in for one pound.
I colored the image with copics.  DP and the brads are from my stash.  The poinsettia were punched and embossed (no name on the punch).  The poinsettia are bright gold, even though they appear green on my card.

Penlope's Party Wagon

This is a stunning birthday party image from Mo's Digital Pencil!  Mo Manning the artist has such a tremendous number of awesome images!  I have colored the image with copics, adding stickles to her hair, hat and the green on the ground.  The Birthday sentiment is from Netty's Cards.  The designer cardstock is from DCWV .  Using another piece of DCWVs cardstock I cut out the flowers which already had glitter on them and then mounted them on felt flowers from my stash.  I think the green flowers take the place of leaves!

Very cold here, below zero, but only a skiff of snow on the ground so the driving isn't too bad.  I like to stay in on the bitter cold days, so making cards on a day like to-day is just the ticket!

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

The Birthday Queen

This wonderful depiction of three fashionable lady's is a digital image from TLC.  I decided to use it as a birthday card for one of my friends.  It comes complete with sentiment and flourishes. - I colored it with copics, added some stickles to the crown and added a butterfly (EK Success punch).  For the inside I added the following:
