Santa and two birds

Hi all!  I am still waiting and hoping for Ashley to call and tell me that she is headed to the hospital to become a mommy!  I've also been wrapping gifts and today plan on baking up some holiday treats to take to work tomorrow.

I wanted to share a couple more cards that I made recently.  This first one is a cute owl and sentiment that comes from Squigglefly and is drawn by Cheryl Grant Alger.  The owl comes from a set called Warm and Cozy and the sentiment comes from a set called Winter Fun.

I used Copics to color the image, but the sky was done with chalk.  I added a little rick rack for texture.  The only thing that bothers me about this is the sentiment - don't you think it should have an "s" at the end of sometime?

Here's another one I made using a Squigglefly image from Sandra Caldwell that I just think is so cute.  It's called Santa and His Birdie.

Everything was colored with Copic markers and I added some faux flower soft and made falling snow dots with white gesso.  Christmas cards are so much fun to make, but I didn't make very many this year.  Maybe now that I'm slowly getting back to making cards I will make them throughout the year so I'm not left empty handed next year!

Next time I post I may be a grandma!  I'll be sure to share pictures!

Beautiful cards, Holly! I agree with you about the missing 's' on the sentiment, but other than that it's a really good and true one :-)
I hope Ashely is doing well. How exciting, grandma! :-)
Merry Christmas!

Fabulous cards, I like the snow you made for the cute Santa. Hope you get your call soon. How exciting to be getting a baby for Christmas.

I like both these cards and yes I think there should be an "s" at the end of sometime. This sentiment is so true and I hope you get a "nana call" soon! What is the baby going to call you? I have a great grandson and he takes up most of my time and I would not give up even a second I get to spend with him!!

Both wonderful cards, as for the "s" could you add one very neatly?

You are probably a Grandma now, so CONGRATULATIONS and enjoy the little bundle of Love.
