Happy New Year

Happy New Year friends and family.  Wishing you all a great, happy and healthy 2014.  I'm hoping for a great year for all of us.  I've been blessed to have so many wonderful friends and family in my life. I'll be having one more Great Grandchild this summer so am looking forward to a healthy baby.

This card was just because I love the image.  It is an older Heartfelt creations image and I am waiting for the dies to arrive so I can pop some of these flower up a little,

For Imke!

This image was sent to us by Imke for our January image.  We will all be sending this guy to her so she will have some masculine cards to send out.  Hope she likes my version of Gus.  This has to be short as I have to go to Pawhuska and get a new car tag.

Basket of leaves!

I finally finished my November image sent to us by Pat.  I love the image, just was to busy or lost my mojo to get it finished in time.  I still have Dec. to do but will get it done soon.  Love Lockhart images, one of my favorite companies.  Thanks Pat for choosing such a great image.

In another post I am adding several Christmas Cards that I haven't posted but made for my Great Grandsons.  Have a great day!

Winter Is For The Birds!

I finally finished my image of the month for From The Heart.  There was two images to choose from this month and they were both cute but this darling snowman is the one I chose to use.  I love snowmen and loved this sentiment that came with it.  For more information check it out here.

Joy To The World!

I hope everyone is not rushed and behind like me.  It is my own fault, just have no mojo to do anything I should be doing.  I have to get busy and get some things finished.

This card was made for my Pastor and his wife.  Love this Mo image, one of my favorites.

Outlawz Alcohol Markers!

Hi everyone!  It is time for another Outlawz Alcohol Markers Challenge and today it is all about shoes. We are sponsored this month by Time For Tea.  I love their images, so cute and fun.  This card was fun to make and the image so easy to color.  I had a different image in mind with the shoe theme but  my eyes decided not to focus right the last 4 days so haven't been able to color and already had this cutie colored so made her into a card.  I'll be using more of these cute images this month.  My image was colored with Copic Markers.

Something besides Holiday card!

I have a lot of Christmas cards to make but am tired of them so taking a little break and doing some birthday cards.  This is an image that I have had for a long time and it is a From The Heart image.
It makes a great birthday card.  I colored it with Copic Markers.
