Cards in Envy - Framed with Circles

1 week until Christmas - ARE YOU READY???

Cards in Envy's last challenge for 2017 is "Framed in Circles". You can see the challenge here. All cards must fit into a standard size envelope for easy mailing. I made a cute cat birthday card for my friend Joanie today.

For this card, I stamped the same circle stamp into a different color of the Tim Holtz oxide inks all around the card. I used the colors Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral, and Peacock Feathers. I think these are my favorite colors out of all the Oxide inks! Then I stamped the cat and colored him with Jane Davenport watercolor paints. I added a tiny bit of glitter using my glitter pen on his nose and whiskers (not sure if it shows up or not here).

I hope you will join us at Cards in Envy.

Happy New Year

The new year will be here in 2 weeks. WOW!

When Unity Stamps came up with this adorable snowman, there was no doubt in my mind, I had to have him!!  Isn't he just the cutest?  I colored him using my Tombow markers and water. For the magenta piece behind the snowman, I didn't have that color paper so I just made it by using my Tombow marker #665 on the edges of the paper so it would match his/her scarf perfectly.

I (heart) you!

This dog from Bugaboo Stamps is so cute. I think he could even be used for Valentine's Day.

Oh Christmas Tree!

Christmas is in 2 weeks. Every time I "think" I'm ready, then I remember something else I need to get.

This little Christmas tree image at Bugaboo Stamps is free right now and you can find her here but you have to act quick, because it's only for a few days. I paper pieced the Christmas tree skirt. I have always loved plaid tree skirts so I love how this came out :).

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
