Season's Greetings!!...

I created this card using the sketch at Crazy4Challenges C4C66. I am late for the challenge but I enjoyed using this fabulous sketch.

I've used another High Hopes Cutie here. These gingerbread sweeties are another design created by Laurie Furnell

The image is colored with copics as a base...and then prismacolor pencils on top. I used a few h20's to deepen the shading.

I received the circle stamp from my good friend Dorte..and don't know where it is from. I used a flower nestie underneath it.

Ink - memento ink, barely banana, creamy caramel, olive, vintage photo. Paper - Georgia pacific, bazzil kraft, The patterned paper is Daisy D from my older stash.......actually my hoarded paper I decided its time to start using these Gorgeous papers. Accessories - white paint, glitter, glossy accents, gold embossing, candy cane brad, pearl bling, ribbon, MS border punch, stitching and snowflake punch.

We are right in the middle of a snow storm. Lots of snow and wind. It feels very good to be inside right now and Buddy does his business outside super

Have a Great Day!!...and Thank you all so much for your lovely comments!!

More Tags!!...Vintage Cute - High Hopes!

Well they are kind of Vintage looking...aren't they?...and for sure this High Hopes snowman is Cute! I just love making tags lately!!
Lots of glitter and gold embossing. Glossy accents on the carrot noses.
Even a couple pieces of paper doilies. These little snowmen ...again created by High Hopes artist Laurie Furnell are fast and easy to color using prismacolor pencils and H20's.
I'm betting everyone is very super busy. I haven't started any baking yet....or wrapped any presents. But it is all on my list of to do's. I had better get a move on.
Thanks for looking everyone....and your Kind and Wonderful comments!! Happy Holidays!!!

Xmas Tags!!!..High Hopes Cuties!!

I've managed to find some time to create some special Xmas tags. I couldn't resist using these Cute High Hopes stamps. The designs were created by Laurie Furnell of the Fabulous new High Hopes artists. After the tags are used on a special gift...I am thinking they could be added to a scrapbook page as a keepsake...or even hung as an ornament on a tree. They sure were fun to make! I've added Shiny White Scribblers for the icing and topped it with some fine glitter. The berries are covered with Glossy Accents.
The to and from are a SU stamp I had hanging around.
Lots of glitter, gold stickles and glossy accents on the snowmen as well.
All the images were colored with copics as a base...and then prismacolor pencils on top. I used a few h20's to deepen the shading.
