Coffee Time

I made this card for a friend of mine that I play cards with every week.  There are seven of us in the group and we always celebrate each others birthdays at cards with a cake and birthday cards with a lottery ticket.  So far no one has gotten rich on those tickets but we do have fun.

The image I used is from TLC and the DP are from Walmart.  I used pop dots under the hand with the coffee cup and the watch.

This is the inside of the card

The inside of the card is the same color as the front of the card, but I guess I used a different light when taking the second picture.  DP from Walmart, wording computer generated.

I used a sketch from Sketch Saturday but I missed the deadline for the challenge.

Time for Golf

Broken pipe and cracked valve in a shower sent water down to our lower floor bathroom - Lucky I was on my way downstairs and we were able to shut the water off before it caused a whole lot of damage.  The pipe was inside an outside wall and froze from the extreme cold we have had.  So between plumbers coming and going and what seemed like a lot of appointments for my husband, I have not had much time to make cards or blog for a couple of weeks.

This card is for my brother who would golf every day if he had the chance.  I kept the card fairly CAS with just the images and sentiment.

The watch and sentiment are images from Doodle Pantry and the golf cart is from Just Inklined.  I coloured the golf cart with copics, but they are just at that age where they are running out of ink so every time I got half way through a colour the pen would run dry.  So there are numerous colours of blue ink on the bag.  I used a silver pen to accent the club covers and zipper pulls.  The watch was precoloured.  

I do have to make a list of my copics that need ink and order a tube of each.

A Christmas Candle

Well it is still very cold here in our complex the street and our driveways were all ice this morning.  But, by the time I was ready to go curling this morning some sand and salt had been put down, so it was melting.
Had a great game to-day even though we only had three on our team, we managed to win the game -  that meant we bought drinks for our opponents (Coffee).  A good morning!

This image is a freebie from Digi Stamps 4 Joy for their first Christmas Challenge.  I stamped the image twice, once on white cardstock and then on the beige DP.  I coloured the candle with Yasutomo metalic paint and then cut it out and glued it to the beige.  I cut out stars and coloured them with copics and attached them to the candle.  The base was coloured with copics.  The sentiment is a die cut.  The DP and cardstock are from my stash.

I if you stop by, I do hope you have time to leave a comment, they are very much appreciated.

The Skaters

Wow first post for 2014 and it is nice to be inside as it is freezing outside.  We have not had a winter as cold as this for quite a few years.  We were so lucky that we didn't lose our power in the ice storm.  Many of our friends were without power for several days, not very pleasant with no heat or water.  Because it is so cold my next card is a reminder that it is still winter here!

I have created this card using a sketch from Mojo Monday I did a bit of flipping of the original and this is what I came up with:

Original -                                                          

My Version - 

I chose the square card -

I coloured the image from Sassy Cheryl's with copics.  adding some silver glitter from Recollections to the falling snow, the ice and around the edge of the oval.  The pink DP is from Recollections and so are the Dimensional Sticker snowflakes.  The grey\blue DP is from Cardmaking and Papercrafting Magazine.

I was able to pick up some of the shine from the glitter on the oval and from the snowflakes.
