365 Cards, Sweet Sketch Wednesday, Danni's Dreams, Stampin for the Weekend and Papertake Weekly

I am playing catch up on my posting by doing several cards at once this time.  I haven't been feeling the greatest this week so I haven't had much energy to get my cards posted up earlier in the week.  The past 4 days I have had no voice....but then I guess that part really doesn't have any affect on my card making.  (laughing silently)  This is certainly a mixed bag of cards. TFL

This first card combines 4 challenges.  Printed paper and sentiment are K&Company, Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval; image is a Digital Doodling freebie; coloring done with Prismacolor pencils and OMS; Stickles, I don't think you can see it in the picture but I used Glossy Accents over the green part of the ornament to give it some shine; ribbon from Hobby Lobby and gold cording from my collection.  TFL

Sweet Sketch Wednesday #26

365 Cards - Day 276 - You're An Angel
use an angel or the word angel

Danni's Dreams #86 - Flutter By Wednesday
open - use a butterfly, fairy or angel

Stampin For the Weekend #27
Christmas Time, Mistletoe & Wine
use Red, Green and Gold

This second card I used printed paper Paper Studio and Kaleidoscope; flower stamp Inkadinkado coloring with Prismacolor pencils and OMS.  This digital Heart image and sentiment is one of the NEW RELEASES to be released on December 10th at Simple Doodles.....I made it be a heart balloon. TFL

365 Cards - Day 277 - Just a Fraction
select an image and use only a part of that image

Here is what the entire stamp looks like.  I just made the flowers about half the height.

This card I used printed papers from Provo Craft and Stickles.  This cute little Precious kitty image and sentiment are some more of the NEW RELEASES for Simple Doodles next week.  I layered the sentiment inside the heart. As I was making this card it reminded me of my kitty I had when I was about 5 years old that was named Snowball.....she was all white. TFL

Papertake Weekly #29 - Sketch

365 Cards - Day 278 - You Can't Miss It
take an image (stamped or digi) and don't add color to the image except for one element and glitter the portion of the image so it really pops

This card I used Paper Studio papers and a 3D embellishment from Michael's. TFL

365 Cards - Day 279 - A Little Wordy
cover the background with words

This last card I got all the stickers and Santa image from Target; I did of course add a bit of Stickers here and there to sparkle things up a bit.  I did use two candy cane stickers together to make a heart. TFL

365 Cards - Day 280 - Kind of Like a Candy Cane
put red and white stripes somewhere on your card.
