My desktop weather watch tells me that my dear friend in Michigan is shivering along with my kids in New York and Massachusetts, so a WARM WISHES theme was just the thing for the Christmas cards I started today. I joined a challenge to make 10 cards a month so that I would have a stash when the holidays roll around but when Jan 29th rolled around and I still hadn't started, I realized I would have to get moving on it! I did a one-sheet-wonder and cut it up to create the cards you see here. I know, I know, there are only 5 and there are supposed to be 10. Guess you can guess what I will be doing tomorrow! These are generic enough to be used for Christmas or Hannukah, although I guess the red and green are a Christmas thing ...
If you have a friend who "coad a code" please feel free to take the snurflepuss image and make a card. Click on comments and tell me if you do - it's great ego food to think someone else likes my drawings.
Octo image is free to a good home.... and has been cleaned up and sharpened by my good friend Juliet.
I sent the manatee image to Pamela at Firecracker... you never know when you will need a manatee on crutches!
I have to say, my scanner does really strange thing when I color with copics. The colors are blended and much more smooth in real life. Oh well.
Tuesdays are the days that Mothermark posts a teapot and a story .... today is no exception. Click here to read the story. Seems Rapunzel's castle has a moat around it and all kinds of swamp things live in the moat.
My card shows an octopus who lives in the moat, but comes out to style Rapunzel's hair when she comes out of the castle to sun.
I don't even want to discuss how BIG this card ended up after adding borders and a brayer attempt at a Zindorf card that went awry and was sitting on my desk ... but here is my Octopus "all set" to do Rapunzel's hair at the castle ...
Check out this card and this card and the ones I made just like them ... Karen Barber is the featured stamper at Splitcoast today. I love Sundays. Mike goes out running and I sit with coffee and look through the featured album, then go off all inspired to make a card.
Here is a direct quote from Donna C but I love the sentiment and can't say it any better than she did ...
