Birthday Girls & Happy World Cardmaking Day!

Happy World Cardmaking Day!  I have actually been making cards off and on, but I’m behind on posting them!  I will try to get a few more recent ones up soon.  I am getting ready to make some card kits today, but first I wanted to share a couple of cards I just finished this week.

There are two special young ladies in my life that have birthdays this week.  I just love this image and had a great time coloring it a little bit differently for each one.  The Doodlebug papers are just adorable and perfect for birthdays!  I used some DMC floss to make my own ‘flower’ behind the numbers – which are also a part of the Doodlebug paper pad.  The dresses have a little glimmer from my Wink of Stella pen.  Inside, they say “have a SWEET Birthday”.

Tiddly Inks Christmas Cards

I had some fun making some Christmas cards this year with a few cute Tiddly Inks images. They are so fun to color and I had a good time trying out different skin and hair color combinations.   I never get to make as many handmade cards for Christmas as I’d like to, but I got a few out this year.  I didn’t want to post them til they made it to their destinations!  I always think I’ll start early…I made these in November…maybe next year I should do “Christmas in July” card making!  I hope you all had a fantastic holiday!

Sending Warm Fuzzies

I have some of my other practice sheets started, but not finished.  Instead, I turned to making a card today for one of my nieces who fell off the monkey bars and broke her arm so badly that she had to have surgery and get screws put into it!  Poor thing!!  This card is on the way to her.  I tried the corduroy technique on the bear that was featured in my Copic Class on coloring critters – and tried to practice my hair coloring from earlier lessons!
