Yesterday while I was making cards I received such a special surprise. The doorbell rang and it was the mailman. I was surprised to see him delivering mail to me on a Sunday, and I was also surprised that he had managed to walk up our icy (and very steep hill) driveway! But the biggest surprise was what was in the big box he handed me. Squigglefly design team member Pat Martin posted a fantastic piece of art on her blog a week or so ago. Go see it HERE. Well, she sent it to ME! I just love it, and will be displaying it every Christmas. It's so pretty and I can't thank her enough for it!
Today I'm sharing a couple of cards I made for the Featured Stamper challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. This artist has a ton of cards in her gallery that I loved. I CASED this card and then made another one CASING this card.
This is one of the newest images at Squigglefly. It's by Cheryl Grant Alger and is called
Wind In My Hair. I colored with Copic markers and added some snowflake dots with white gesso. I used a little bit of crystal lacquer for the ice.
The sentiment is a new one from Elizabeta Kushner called Holiday Greeting. I added a couple of punched snowflakes and pearls. This card also qualifies for the following challenges:
Digi Haven - Christmas
Delicious Doodles - Christmas
Card Making Mamas - Christmas
Creative Corner - Christmas
Speaking of challenges, Squigglefly has a new one today too and my first card fits it because the challenge is Christmas! Come play with us!
My second card uses a snowman by Carmen Gamble called It's Snowing! I colored with Copic markers and again used white gesso to dot some snowflakes in the sky. The snow under the snowman is puffed paint. I computer generated the sentiment. I loved the sentiment on the card I was CASING because I needed a birthday card and don't always want to use snowmen for Christmas. I added a couple of buttons and some cording. This card also qualifies for Card Crafters Circle Challenge - Celebrations.
I will be leaving for a work a little late this morning because I want to wait until someone else from work has traveled the roads so they can let me know if they are good or not. I am a chicken when it comes to driving on roads with ice patches! I wish you all a great day!
