Well, it's Sunday again. I hate how quickly the weekends pass...especially when you're sick. I've been taking DayQuil and NyQuil all weekend and have really been out of it. Didn't get any Christmas shopping done...but...I did go to a 13 hour crop yesterday and was able to create some cards! I also made some new friends, which is always fun. =D
Here's the first card I created.
This adorable image is a freebie over at Stamp Fairy. His name is Oscar...isn't he cute?!? He was colored with Copic markers, and the snow was outlined with Stickles. The paper is from DCWV and Stampin' Up. Gems and gem snowflakes are from my stash. The paper snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch. Sentiment from Stampin' Up. The sketch for the front is from Stamp Fairy.

Here's the second card I made.
I just had to use my new Crafts & Me image again...I just love it so much! She was colored with Copics, and Stickles were added to the wings. The image was popped up to give dimension, and also to fit over the pearls. =D Papers are from DCWV and Stampin' Up. Sentiment by Hero Arts. The purple gems are from my stash. The pink pearl swirls are from Prima. They were originally white, but I colored them with my pink Copic marker to make them match.

Ok, here's another!
These two images are from Crafty Sentiments. Cute, no? They were colored with Copics, then Stickles were added. The star chains and star on the tree were colored with a Stardust pen. You can't really see it, but the bear and present are popped up to add some dimension. The papers are from Stampin' Up and DCWV. Ribbon is from my stash. The color inspiration came from this week's challenge at The Pink Elephant (TPE 127).

Ok, this is the final card...
This distressed card was created using a stamp from Tim Holtz. I've always loved this image of Santa...I call it the Holly King. It was colored and all papers were edged with Distress Inks, and of course stickles were added to the holly. Papers are from Tim Holtz. Front sentiment is from Inkadinkado, inside sentiment is from Hero Arts. Ribbon and lace are from my stash. The lace was originally white, but I colored it with Distress Ink. This is supposed to be a manly card. I know it has a ribbon and some Stickles, but it's still manly, right? I'd give it to a guy. If you disagree, please feel free to remove me from the masculine challenges. =D

Fooled ya! I've got one more! Really, though, it's an ATC....so it's not really a card, which means I was technically telling the truth. =D
This image is from the Wax Fruit Company. I colored the background of the image with a black Uniball pen, then outlined all of the petals and the outside of the ATC with Stickles. You can't really see it, but the image is popped up off the card. Paper is from Teresa Collins.
