Holiday Cheer!!..Motivet

Even though I am too late for the last Motivet # 51 Sketch Challenge..this card is totally inspired by that Fabulous sketch.

The lovely traditional Motivet image I used for this card is called "Santa in chimney" Right now Motivet is having a Spectacular Sale.....25 % off on this and all their images!!

The image is colored with copics under the prismacolor pencils and a touch h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle. *(Please not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

I used versamark and gold embossing powder to heat emboss on the corners of the image and sentiment. The sentiment "happy holidays" is from hero arts.

Ink - memento black, barely banana, creamy caramel. Papers - GP white, Treasures, Basic Grey, Fancy Pants. Accessories - flowers, brads, gold embossing powder, stickles, paper doily, lace (a lovely from Tina - Thank you!!), snowflakes, holly, scribbles, glitter, stitching.

I hope everyone had a Wonderful Christmas! and is enjoying the holidays!! We had lots of good company and food!. It is very out here...We are going to settle in for a quiet New Years...maybe watch a movie and nibble on some crackers, cheese and leftover fruitcake...Yum!!

Thanks for visiting.... your lovely comments and for all the Wonderful Inspiration you've all shared through out the last year!!....Have a Safe Happy Healthy New Years Everyone!!!

Christmas Break!!

Season's Greetings!!...I'm taking a little blog enjoy the Season and spend with family. I wish Everyone a Blessed Merry Christmas ...and a Safe and Healthy New Year!!! Big Xmas Hugs! Ila

Merry Christmas!!..and a little Buddy Fun!!

Twas the night before Christmas and Buddy had heard that a big jolly fellow...would be invading his turf! He'd be listening and waitin'..crouched low in his bed And if this fella was comin'..He'd wake up the dead!! Christmas eve finally came...Buddy lifted his head.. He heard bumps and grunts..and leaped out of bed. That big Guy was here.. of that was a fact! He looked jolly and friendly and carried a sack! Buddy was speechless!....he did not attack!!.. With his tail a wagglin'..he rolled on his back!! "I'm not much of a watch dog"... Little Buddy admits... but .."Woof!!".. "Santa sure gives good belly rubs..and bully bone sticks!!"

Quick Xmas Cards

I'm still alive .....I've had the flu for a good week but I'm on the mend now. Christmas has come way too fast for me this year and I am very behind. There is still so much to I may be MIA here and there.

The cards I have here are quick cards that I made in Oct for my Mother for her birthday. She loves to give out handmade Christmas cards...and since she is living in a home it seemed like a good gift. Trina (my daughter) and I joined forces to make her a # of cards. I will show a few more I made in the next while. This little dog...reminds me of my son's little dog can see his photo here

The quickest thing about these cards is that they are made from My Minds Eye Christmas Card Pack....(50 pre-folded cards - textured heavy - printed CS). Last year Trina and I both bought a box at Hobby Lobby 1/2 price. Couldn't beat that!..LOL. Now...did I get my Christmas cards made this year?...Nope!.....oh well.....maybe next year. I also want to show you the Lovely card and goodies I received from Danielle - "Paper Inspirations by Danielle" Thank you so much Danielle!! Be sure to check out her blog....her work is Beautiful!!!

Well that's it for me for today.....Thank you so much for visiting!!.....I will try to get another post in before Xmas .....meanwhile...I hope everyone is enjoying the Festive Season!!

Happy Holidays Everyone!!
