Christmas cards

So confession time.. I made over 100 Christmas Cards in 2016 and I sent a total of ZERO.  I work in aged care and planned on making enough cards for all the residents.   Needless to say I'm well ahead for 2017.   I think I'll use up what I have for staff too.   So here is the first of the "new" cards for next year.    I saw this image on the inspiration blog for All dressed Up and just had to have it.   Its a lovely image and such a joy to colour..  I'm sure I will be using it again and again through the year.

Im playing in the ADU anything goes challenge with this card and also a few others.

Thank you to the Creative Fingers Sponsors for 2016

All of the team members at Creative Fingers would like to put out a big thank you for all over the wonderful sponsors for 2016, without them we wouldn't have a challenge blog or images to use.
As part of our thank you post we are all linking up projects using the sponsors images so please head to all of the teams blogs and send some love to the generous sponsor's who donate to us so we can share with you.  I am using an image from OddBall Art Co - Zeddy dressed as Santa.    Lately I have decided to keep my projects clean and simple which actually means I finish cards instead of procrastinating.  I hope you like what I have created.

Please head on over to the challenge blog and visit the rest of the team, we love reading your comments.

Christmas is coming

I made this card up many months ago and forgot to share it.   As any of my regular blog visitors know, I love snowmen, there is just something fun and cheery about them.  Perhaps its simply my love of snow that draws me to colour them in.

Teddybo has come to play

Gayle the wonderful artist and inspiration behind Teddybo has been drawing again and I used my Zig Real Clean colour real brush markers on Bristol Smooth to colour up this bear a few weeks ago, and then I promptly forgot the place it on the card.  If you havent tried water markers on Bristol then please give it a go.  The blend is amazing and more importantly forgiving.

OddBallArt Facebook Challenge

Its the first of the month and that means Facebook Challenge time.  This is a challenge I encourage you to enter, you could win 3 free digi's as a thanks for playing prize!   
I loved colouring this image Spooky B-Cute Creeps ~ Gloomy Guss Image No. 222 for the challenge inspiration.   Im not sure who I will ever give this card to, but thats not the point, it was all about creating and colouring for me.    I used some texture paste with a stencil for the little triangles on the background piece and Copics for the main colouring on the image.   The sentiment is from a Dylusions set and I think its fitting!  

Please head on over to the store to check out everything it has to offer and please enter the challenge, we very much want to see what you create.   Facebook challenge can be found HERE each month.  Look for the album that is called Facebook challenge for the month your entering (ie. for this month look for the December Album).
