Birthday boy

This cute digital is from Little Miss Muffet, who I'm sad to say is no longer in business.   Boy cards are really challenging, but I think this one was enjoyed by the recipient.  The sentiment is a die cut and I used a hand punch for the stars.   The image is colored with prisma pencils, and I tried to match the coloring to the background paper.

Ladybugs fly home

The verse and ladybugs are a wooden stamp that I got a looong time ago, and the company name on it, is Designs Unlimited.   I added hearts to the upper corners, and the red, white and black lace trim at the bottom is cute washi tape.  The two raised ladybugs are actually buttons that I've cut the shanks off of.   This card was donated to Bring Smiles To Seniors for distribution.

Santa Claws

This sweet Penny Black kitty has snuggled itself under Santa's hat.  I've used stitched die cut framing, added candi-dots to the corners, as well as a pretty poinsettia.   Celebrate is also a die cut and I've added some stickles to the white portions on the hat, and this card is ready for distributing.   Hope everyone is staying warm in this arctic freeze going through right now.

Holly mouse

This cute holiday mouse comes from Digi Doodle Studios, which I've colored with prisma pencils, and added stickles to his hat.  Since I had some cute background papers, I added some teal to the traditional red/green holiday colors for better coordination.  The upper snowflake corner and the trees are die cuts, the poinsettias are dimensional stickers from Hobby Lobby, and then I topped it with a bow.  Goes without saying that this creature WAS stirring - haha.

Snowman in red

I have to admit that this is one of my favorite snowmen -- he comes from Penny Black and can be colored in any color and can look completely different.   I stamped him on an invitation type white card, so it already has somewhat of an embossed frame to it, then the snowman takes main stage, with stardust stickles added to his hat, the "smile" is a die cut, and a glittered foam snowflake completes this wintery card.

Sunflower elegance

Autumn is a time when sunflowers abound, and if you ever see a field of them, they're strikingly awesome -- all those happy faces, which you can't prevent yourself from smiling at.  This adorable digital comes from Di's Digi Designs, which I've colored with prisma pencils and gamsol, adding stardust stickles to the flowers.  The mesh behind my image is drywall tape, with a strip of ribbon across.  The flowers were attached with brads, the upper corners are die cuts with a gem added, a bow perched atop, and last but not least, a couple butterflies.

Fairy thoughts

This pretty image is from Ching-Chou Kuik, which I've colored with prisma pencils and gamsol, and of course, being a fairy calls for wings, which I've added stardust stickles to for her magical powers.  I've tucked a couple doilies behind my image and topped it with a pretty bow.  I made the foliage and daisies with a die cut, attaching the flowers with swiss dot brads.  The spots at the two corners are candi-dots, and the sentiment is a sticker.  Thanks for coming in to view my creation.
