I made this snowglobe with Stretch my imagation.  The clear globe is cut out of a page protector.  The snow was made by rubbing two syrofoam balls together.  The little snowman is made out of a piece of material glued onto cardstock.  I used stickles to make him sparkle

A Whale Of A Tale

My son has been asking me for a little while to make him a bookmark.  When I saw this cute little whale from MyGrafico's collection I had to do it.  I used DCWV paper and colored the whale with bic pens.  I laminated it so it would last a little longer for him.

Cuttlebug Challenge #57

This weeks Challenge was a Sketch Challenge and dedicated to our Hero's.... Our Soldiers. I picked this image because it means so much to me. I had purchased it to help on a fund raiser for Meningitis. This is near to my heart as I lost my little angel to meningitis when he was 11 days old. Born on Christmas morn. He would be 29 this year. The second reason this was my favorite is my son is a soldier and I'm making cards for his single buddies to send home for Christmas. The last of course all my friends know. I LOVE SNOWMEN!!!! I colored him with Bic pens using the wonderful techniques we learned over the last couple of weeks in the Copic University. Thanks for all the help. I used the Snowflake folder for the circle.

Be Inspired #56 Give Thanks

The challenge this week over on Cuttlebug Challenge is to create a Thanksgiving or Gratitude project of your choosing. I chose to make a stair step card using Annie Langs digi art. I colored the images with water colored pencils and Bic pens. I colored a couple of each image so I could layer them to give them dimension. I used the Floral Screen Cuttlebug Folder on the card. I put some glaze on the vegetables and Martha Stewarts white glitter on the vegetables that are on the serving plate. I just love Annie Langs art. I am thankful for all my friends and family and thoroughly enjoy this time of year. I must say between Halloween and Christmas I have too much fun decorating and celebrating.
