Christmas is right around the corner and I have been busy with trying to finish up my Christmas cards for this year. I would like to share them with you and hope to give a little inspiration if you need it. Lisa
This is Zoey's first time ever trick or treating due to she was always either too sick or in the hospital to go. I really think she enjoyed this even if she can't eat the candy. We all went to the New Harmoney State Park in New Harmoney IN. My daughter was babysitting 4 children so she brought them along with my Grandson Skyler who is Micheal Myers and his triplet cousins Kyle who had his tiger outfit on and Austin who would only wear his bottoms. We had a great time and the weather was perfect a bit cool but sunshine the whole day. I hope you all enjoy my pictures. Lisa
I just finished a Christmas card I found the sketch layout from this blog I visit often http://christmaschallenges.blogspot.com/ It is not near as pretty as some of the cards that people have posted on this site but I may go ahead and add a sentiment to it and maybe a little more bling. I just got to think it over. I started out with a Paper studio card, I purchased the set at Hobby Lobby just last month. I used a stripped Christmas paper, the red and tan paper I got from my plain stock colors I have on hand. I found the ribbon if that is what you want to call it at Joann's in the craft section. I had a snowman stamp from Micheal's last year stamp and colored it with copic's. I used a red stickles on the hat and scarf to add some sparkle to the card.
Last night I worked on one of my new Christmas House Mouse stamps, coloring with my Copic's. I have taken a few classes now on blending and coloring with Copics and it has really helped me. I showed my daughter Amanda and she really liked it. So that brought up my confidence to go ahead and post a picture of my Copic coloring.
I attended a Copic class hosted by Helen Johnson a certified Copic instructor. The class was how to do blend and color blacks. She is a very good teacher and I really have enjoyed every class I have attended. I thought the cards came out very nice.
Hello it was another beautiful day in Evansville Indiana. It got up to around 84 degrees and was breezy. I went to a crop last Friday night at the Corner Crop Store with one of my best friends Debbie
aka...scraphead on the Cricut Circle board. Here is the card I made Rita a fellow Circle board member who was just diagnosed with breast cancer. I hope she likes it I just put it in my mailbox so she won't get it until around Friday. I used a new Inky Antic's stamp and the paper is from a Autumn stack of DCWV. I colored it with Copic markers and the twine I got from Mary Cork on the Cricut Circle board. Oh forgot to tell you all that I made the Medical Assistant Program at Ivy Tech Community College, I am soooooo excited. Staying on the Dean's List and raising my 7yr Grandson Skyler keeps me busy. Have a good week, I am planning on starting on my Thanksgiving cards this week so if I get any of them done I will post them. Lisa
September sure went by fast and my granddaughter Zoey is still in the hospital. She ended up with having three surgeries to her jaw because her bones grew together so quickly that the jaw extension wouldn't turn to move her jaw forward. She is one tough little girl, only 4 yrs old and this is her 17th or 18th surgeries. I talked to my daughter tonight and she is hoping to bring Zoey home tomorrow from Indy. So that was good news. O.k. now for my tag, I used a regular tag and inked it up with the new Tim Holz fall ink set I purchased last weekend. I then run the tag through my cuttle bug using the spider web folder. After inking I punched out of black paper the spider which is an EK punch and then used sparkle glitter glue I got from Joann's. I found the word Halloween from one of my clear stamps and stamp it black. It came out cute and I'm finally in the fall festive mood. Oh I forgot after I inked I stamped the tag with Recollections stamp that has very small cursive handwriting on it. But it doesn't show too well so If you don't have one it's no big deal. Hope you all had a great day and God Bless!
My poor little grandaughter Zoey underwent three surgeries in less than 1 week, her face was so swollen that the docter stitched her eyes together and has her in an induced coma. She has been fighting the ventilator since her surgery last Wed so the docter has her pretty drugged up to keep her calm. Prayers for Zoey!!!
