Decking the Halls….just in time!

2 Comments

Here I am with only a few hours left to link up my creation for the From the Heart Stamps Digi of the Month Challenge.

I tried paper piecing the image so I wouldn’t have to ask my husband to color the image in but it just would not cooperate. I tore the head off one bird and smudge black ink on another so gave up! I went to my husband with the saddest wife eyes possible and asked him to color up the bird…I had managed to do the ornaments all by myself! Of course there is no shading or fancy coloring but it is colored! I found the sketch on Sketch Saturday and thought it would be perfect.

 

Define Good

Deck the Halls

I saw someone had used the sentiment “Define Good” and thought that would be perfect for my Brother’s card so I made one of each!

CHALLENGES:

SUPPLIES:

Digital Image: Deck the Halls Birdbrain @ From the Heart Stamps

Cardstock: Bazzill (Lava, Rainforest, Intense Kiwi, white)

Patterned Paper: Scenic Route (Roxbury -Rockville Park)

Inks: colored in Photoshop and printed on Canon Inkjet Printer

Happy Birthday CAS style

1 Comment

CAS is not normally my style but a lady at work saw  a card I made in the past and wanted something along the same lines but done in blue and black. It is for her boss at work which is also one of my bosses so I definitely wanted it to be perfect. She liked it but he doesn’t get it till Monday so don’t know what his thoughts are just yet!

Happy Birthday to you Happy Birthday to you- lt blue

I did a lighter blue and a darker blue. She gave him the darker blue.

I used the sketch at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday. When I first saw the sketch I thought it was going to be hard and that I would probably not use it…but then it turned out perfect…love when that happens. I found the free word art on 1st Floor Flat.

A friend of mine is a nurse supervisor in a doctor’s office and asked if I would make birthday cards that she can give each employee on their birthday. Of course I said, “YES!” She saw the one I did similar to this and wanted this style for the first birthday that is this Friday. I hope Jodi likes it!
