Better late than never!


Busy, busy, busy and too wired to craft, which you've doubtless heard before from me. Maybe caffeine isn't really the answer, though I don't (can't and won't) believe that. Truth be told, I'm also a great procrastinator.

Anyways, I finally got around to finishing some cards, starting others, and scanning them. So be prepared for weeks of (very late) holiday cards and other stuff.

This one features some of the new release stamps from Odd Bird Planet, which are included in the store-wide 12 Days of Christmas Sale. I used Kelly's Ice House, Kelly's Snow House, Kelly's Gnome Pulling Tree, and "Warm Winter Wishes". I colored all images with chalk pencils, shimmery palette chalk, and Prismacolor Markers. I liberally added Liquid Pearls to the houses, grass, and street. That stuff is cool, but takes forever to dry. The papers are by Basic Grey and the Pearls are from Mike's. Oh yeah. The card is humongous at 8.5" x 5.5"!

Thanks for visiting today and stay warm!
