New Beginnings

This month the challenge theme over at Cute As A Button is 'New Beginning'.  I used the image called 'New Beginnings'.  I colored this image mostly with pencil.  I added some pearls, lace and roses.  The designer paper is double sided, so I used both sides of one piece of scrap paper I had on hand.

An Elvis Christmas

I love Elvis Christmas songs!!!  I just finished this card, the glue is only just dry!  haha  I used flowers, gems, pearls, lace, ribbon, and white leaves for this one.  The sentiment is mine.

I Can Explain

This week over at Incy Wincy Design Challenge, the theme is to use a non traditioanl image to create a Christmas creation.  The sponsor this week is Limited Runs.  I chose to play with this adorable guy Albert.  I kept my card relatively CAS by just using some texture, a few gems, some string, a tag and a tree die as decoration.  Albert was colored using pencil and then I added Glossy Accents to his glasses.

Thankful For You

Today I was in the mood to make something a little more special than what I've been making lately.  I saw a card made by Beth Brovold and had to CASE it.  I used an image from Bugaboo stamps called Edward-Fall Pumpkins.  I started by using a fun shaped card base (cut using some cookie cutter dies).  I used some red, brown, cream/print papers to cut some leaves using a leaf die set, some red burlap, some fun fall colored flowers, some cream string beads, and orange ribbon.  I colored the image using colored pencils only.  The sentiment is one of my own.
