Cupcake peeker

This sweet little gal is from the Bugaboo store -- it seems as if she's gotten a super-sized cupcake, which looks absolutely delicious.  I've colored with prismas and computer generated the sentiment.  Candi-dots are at the top corners, as well as the center of her hair bow.  I added a button cupcake, of which I cut the shank off the back, and that's ribbon washi tape along the bottom.

Shopping with friends

This sweet image comes from Di's Digi Designs, which I've colored with prisma pencils and gamsol, adding glitter to her muffs, collar, boots and the snow.   I've tucked a couple doilies behind, added the sentiment ribbon along the bottom, with the gift embellishments and gems, and topped it all with a pretty bow with a stocking button (I cut the shank off the back) in the center, hot-gluing it on to be sure it stayed in place.

Yummy holiday treats

Although the candy on this card is a nice treat, I'm thinking the gingerbread man is also.   This digital comes from the Bugaboo store, which I've colored with prisma pencils and gamsol, then added glitter to the white portions of the candy stick - which matched the glittered foam hard card stickers I added.   The sentiment is computer generated and the frame around, of course, is a die cut.

Take me home . . .

This Bugaboo kitty looks a bit chilled, even with its scarf -- I think it's looking for a nice, warm home.   I simply colored this image, and added subtle gray highlights to it, which are hard to see.   I computer generated the sentiment, the spots at the top are candi-dots mounted with foam, and then the glittered snowflake ribbon along the bottom completes this simple, but cute, card.

Sweet holiday wishes

Would it really be Christmas without the candy canes, that seem to abound in many more flavors than just the original peppermint - this silly Bugaboo penguin has his hands on a super-sized one, and I'm not sure that he's going to share!  I've colored with prismas, computer generated the sentiment and added glitz to the white portions of the candy cane.  As you can tell, my first choice for holiday cards are the traditional red and green.   Hope you get the chance to start working on your holiday cards -- time tends to creep up on us and it's here all too soon.

Decorate the tree

This gal comes from Sherri Baldy's My Bestie store, and she appears to be choosing her decorations to hang - hmm, could it be for the tree, or maybe the mantel?  I've colored with prismas and added stickles to her hat and boot tops.  The tree and mittens are die cuts, and the snowflake and reindeer are foam stickers.  Thanks for coming in to view another card that's being added to my Christmas card mailing list.

Happy holly days

I recently acquired this digital from Ching-Chou Kuik, and think she's really elegant.   I've used soft, subtle hues with my prisma pencils and added glitter to the holly berries and butterfly.  I just love the ease of die cuts, and you see, I've used a tree, deer, holly and sentiment all on this card.  I added red pearls to the holly at the upper corner, and tucked white and brown doilies behind my image.  Thanks for coming in, and hope you enjoy this card as much as I do.
