Another bear


Another bear card for you today.

This one is for hubs, he returned to Maryland a week before I did...this should be waiting for him when he arrives. 

The sentiment is computer generated in word. Make a table, fill it with black and choose white as your font color and type away.  I recommend adding more rows  and columns than you need so you can choose how far the black extends in all directions. After printing on paper, I glue it to card stock before cutting my final shape.

Thanks for stopping.

Those Polar Pals

Hi There!

I dug out my MFT Polar Pals stamp set...I just love these bears! They remind me of the coca-cola bears and never fail to make me smile.



I had hoped that embossing folder was a bit reminiscent of an igloo. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Coloring on Gray

Hi there,

I wanted to try some coloring on a colored cardstock other than black, so I chose some gray (or is it grey? gray makes more sense to me so I am choosing the a!)

The flower is from Altenew, the sentiment from Simon's.

Quilted Thanks


This Amaryllis never made it to the front of a Christmas card, but I think it makes a stunning Christmas thank you.   After coloring the image (Penny Black) I cut it out to fit on top of  a die cut piece of red vellum.

I mounted it on a quilt cut card base and added the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.

I think my friend will enjoy the card as much as I am enjoying her gift.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there!

I picked up my copics again, it had been a while since I colored.   This stamps set is from CTMH, called Tea-riffic.  I have a tea loving friend and she'll appreciate it.

Through the holidays I saw so many red and blue combinations and I fell in love with it. I figured that this card would make a good try for those colors.  There was no saucer on the stamp image...but I think it needed something to even it out,s o I drew it in ---after all that coloring of the cups fortunately it worked out.

Thanks for stopping by!
