Keep Fighting

One of the first digital stamps I ever got was from Doodle Pantry.  I absolutely love the way Laurie draws.  I think I own every birdie she has ever done.  This one is especially dear to me.  I know several people that have battled breast cancer and one that lost her battle.  The holidays can be especially rough when battling cancer or when you are dealing with the loss of someone due to cancer.  I am dedicating this to all the women out there.

I colored this little birdie green and gold for a reason.  I have parrots and I wanted to combine some of their colors so that they would all be represented and none of them would be jealous.  I can't have angry birds in the house at Christmas time.

Christmas Card and Gift Set

Christmas is almost here and you never know when you will need a quick little gift for someone.  The Sassy Studio Designs Team has come up with a few "just in case" ideas for you.  Mine is very simple.  I made my card with this fabulous Mistletoe SSD image.  I colored her with Copics and popped her up on some festive Christmas paper. 

Then I took some Hersheys Nuggets and covered them with the background paper.  I wrapped it all up in some plastic and added the same ribbon I used on the card so everything coordinated.

Please hop over to Sassy Studio Designs to see what the other Design Team members created and have a wonderful holiday season!!!

Thanks for stopping by.

Alternative Christmas

Hi everyone.  Today at Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls we challenge you to create a project inspired by an alternative Christmas movie.  I chose Nightmare Before Christmas, for several reasons.  First, because it was the first movie I thought of.  Second, because it is my niece and namesake Becca's favorite movie of all time.  Third, because I have TONS of Nightmare Before Christmas.  And last, but not least, because I worked a craft show this weekend and got an order for it.

The fabulous image I am using is from Sassy Studio Designs.  Don't Jack and Sally look so happy together?  I colored them with Copics.  I cut Sally out and popped her up with SU dimensionals.  The holly background is perfect for them.  I double matted them with 8x10 white/black mats.  Now it is ready for framing.

Please hop over to BTBD and see what the rest of the Design Team has created for your inspiration.  Then play along, won't you? 

Thanks for stopping by.
