Gorjuss Thanks

I have amassed quite a few cards in the year or two that I've been making them and I finally realize that I don't give out nearly as many as I make.  I don't want to stop making them, but I don't want to have to store them in boxes taking up precious space (that could be used for more crafty supplies ;D), so I've decided to try something new.  Instead of making a full card, I just made a card front.  I figure, I can go back later and add it to a plain card base if I find someone to give it to.  Until then, I may store them in a photo album or something... that part is still to be determined.

So to try out my new plan, I created a card for the latest MarkerPop challenge: Dark Colors.

I actually colored her twice - once in dark blue then in dark teal.  All because I wanted to use this paper from Authentique!  Next time I pick the paper before I start coloring!

Have a great weekend,

Elf Christmas

I love the movie Elf.  It's become a must see every Christmas.  So when I saw Some Odd Girls' Elf Kaylee, I had to color her up.

I kept the colors pretty traditional with a little pop of blue on the one patterned paper.  I colored Kaylee with Copics, adhered her on top of the patterned 'flags', added some piercing in the corners, a few green pearls, and an embossed Paper Smooches sentiment.

I've been practicing my Copic coloring, I still hate coloring with reds, but I LOVE how she turned out!!

She'll be playing along with the following challenges:

Hol-ODD-day Hop

Today I'm sharing a tag that I created for the Some Odd Girl 3rd Annual Hol-ODD-day Hop

And here it is:

I wanted to make a tag and thought the penguin from the Warm Wishes Tia set would be perfect.  I colored the penguin with my copics then paper pieced his hat and the gift.

I'm also entering this into the SOG December Sketch Challenge and CAS-ual Fridays #80 - Gift Tags.

To see all of the other fun projects in the hop, visit the SOG site here.  The hop goes from the 3rd through the 6th.  I can't wait to see all of the great things listed!
