Christmas Cocoa

I made two cards with this week's image from Designed to Delight. I am taking an online Copics class so I used this very versatile image to practice my shading. I have quite a few copics but not many 3 color families so I used turquoise for one and orange for the other. I now have two more Christmas cards to add to my growing stash.

Recycled Christmas cards

Every year I get a lot of Christmas cards from my friends and family. Although most are store bought they have lovely images and sentiments on them. I have saved them for the past couple of years and decided to recycle them this year. I have made 18 so far today and just wanted to share some of them. I am very happy with the way they have turned out. The last two cards are made from just one larger card.

Skating Penguin

I have been able to make cards the past couple of days and how good that feels! This is this week's image from Designed to Delight. The sentiment is from TLC Creations.

Two Digi Challenges

My first card is for a challenge over at Squigglefly. The challenge is to use only a Squigglefly digi sentiment. The background is done using the TJ Scrunchie technique (one of my all time favorites!). It is rather plain, but I generally prefer that for Smpathy cards.

The next card is for a challenge at one of my most favorite blogs Create with TLC. Paulette offers all kinds of freebies and a lot of images for which you can name your own price. Now how cool is that?? For this challenge we chose an image and sentiment from the name your own price section. I love the vintage lady and camera, and I always love sentiments about smiling. The beads on the card are some I bought today at a local bead store.

Little Angel card

I made this Christmas card last night. The cute image is from Designed 2 Delight. I know a lot of ladies like the images of the little girls with no mouths, but they drive me a little crazy. I added a big smiley cause that is the way I feel! Thanks again, Faith, for your weekly images!!

Harvest Basket card

It was a very busy week for me and I am starting another today, but I did have time to make a card yesterday using this free digi from Designed to Delight. Faith added a couple of sentiments for those of us who played last week.
