Bear Family Sliding Downhill

This is my third card for the CDAC Progressive Challenge series six which will end on the 15th of  Novermber and I still have two more cards to make .  The image of the bear is from Design 2 Delight.  I had fun with this image copying it 4 times in different sizes. The bears are colored with copics, the sky with Distress Ink, and the snow is from a Marvy Uchida snow marker.  The snowflake stickers are from Starform, and the Sentiment printed on my computer.

We have had some wonderful weather here, so did some work in my garden trimming shrubs and pulling out the tomato plants, etc.  I have been curling mornings three times a week, have been on the winning side more often lately so get to buy the drinks!

Thank you for looking, hope you have time to leave a comment - they are appreciated!

Barn Scene

This is my second card for the CDAC Progressive Challange, series 6.  This wonderful barn scene is from Ginger Loft.  I have used Ranger Distress Ink using the ink pad and sponges direct to paper.  I used post it notes to cover the areas where I was not stamping, or coloring.  I printed out the image on a slant, then stamped in the triangular areas at each corner of the card.  Then colored the card.  The Ponderosa Pine branch stamp is from Stampendous, and the Christmas word stamp is from Inkadinkado.  I am so used to doing Christmas cards in red and green or gold or silver, that I don't know if these colors are right or not!

The shopping Elephant

This cute little Elephant who likes to shop is a digital image from Inked Treasures.  I have colored her with copics.  Cut a hole in the designer paper to frame her with a Nellie's multi frame's oval.  The Snowflakes at the top of the card were cut with a Marianne Design die.  The DP is from K&Company, and the ribbon from my stash.  This is my first card for the CDAC Progressive Challenge, series 6, which ends November 15th.

My favorite store for card making supplies is closing at the end of the month.  As long as I have been making cards they have had free classes on Saturday mornings, a weekend in the spring and fall, with classes and lunch for both days free of charge, and make and takes.  I have not always been able to attend, but have gone when I could, and have gotten to know the names of most of the people in their classes.  They display the cards that the teachers for the classes made, and you are allowed to take pictures of them.  They also had classes taught by some of the suppliers some free, some where you were doing hands on, and paid for the day.  The store is Angela's Creative Papercraft in Dundas, Ontario, Canada and we will miss not only the store, but the wonderful staff.
