Never to early to start those Christmas Cards

At last I have made a concerted effort on my Christmas cards. I have my sister coming for a month long visit so August will be a washout lol. We haven't seen each other in 5 years so I am looking forward to some sibling time. Maybe I will rope her in as assistant card maker.
Ok this card was made for a Face Book challenge and I really love the image so I might have to make a few more slightly different. The owl is from Aurora Wings. I have printed onto parchment paper and embossed the owl from the back, the mistletoe has been coloured with pencils and the inner frame is from a Pergamano grid and outer one is a Spellbinders die cut, the backing paper is from my stash.

Lazy Sunday afternoon

Gorgeous day today and I have just written a new post and lost it in cyber space somewhere. Well here goes let me try again. I have just finished a card for a Christmas in July challenge, yes I know it is far to hot to even think of Christmas. The image is from Stamps by AuroraWings. I have printed the image onto parchment paper, coloured on the back with oil pastels and added pencils on the front for a bit of shading. Embossing, grid work and cut work to finish off the image and then layered it onto gold card stock, a doily and a Flourish Emblem die from Anna Griffin.

Happy 4th to all my American Friends

This is my first 4th of July as an American. I was really looking forward to the parade and the fireworks, but, unfortunately Arthur had other ideas. It has been pretty wet and windy here in Massachusetts. No parade so might as well get some crafting in lol. The card I made today used Arden a digital stamp fairy from Spellbindings. She was a joy to colour. I am experimenting with some darker skin tones.Using Promarkers as always, handmade flowers made with a Cheery Lynn die and the borders are from the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis dies.

I am entering this card in the http://promarkerchallenge.blogspot.com/2014/07/week-254-theme.html
