My favorite for 2018

Today I thought I would post my favorite card for 2018.  For all of you who know me well, you know that coloring images is my therapy.  Well Power Poppy has some amazing stamp sets if you like to color.  I saw a Christmas card on their blog and decided that I wanted to make those for 2018.  Well at least I can say I got one accomplished for a dear friend of mine.  Her name is Silvia and has the biggest heart of anyone I know.  I am so lucky to have her for a friend.  She is always ready to go for any venture I might come up with.  She loves all the hobbies I do and just fun to be around.
The stamp set I used is called Glitter House Stamp Set.  I stamped the image off and then colored it with my copic markers.  I added a little glitter for the snow.  I then used a fence die for the front of the card.  

So wishing everyone a Happy New Year and I hope 2019 brings you good health and lots of creative fun.  I have signed up for a lot of crops in the area and looking forward to a year of fun and fellowship with all my friends.

SCS Challenge Your Stash

Today my card comes from challenges over on Splitcoaststampers.  I always go there for inspiration and they never let me down.  I started my card with a challenge group I am in and it is to make a card or project with something you have in your stash.  Well we all know I have plenty in my stash.  The hostess this month was Jody and her challenge for us was to use an owl in our card.  Well that was an easy one since I have lots of owl stamps.  The problem was "Which one should I use"?

Since I ran out of Christmas cards this year, I decided to get a jump on 2019 cards.  The stamp set I used was Happy owlidays by Sunny Studio.  I love this stamp set and think is made an adorable card.  
For my layout, I used the Sketch Challenge this week at Splitcoaststampers. 
So thanks for stopping by.  I will be posting again this weekend with some exciting news and my favorite card of the year that I made.  Be sure and stop by.

PIP Challenge #1849

Over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies we are set for another Challenge today.  It will be Challenge #1849 and the sponsor this month is Di's Digi Stamps.

For my card today I selected one of Di's adorable images called "Izzys Balloons" and right now the image is only $1.  Where can you find a bargain like that?

I sized the image and printed it off on my printer.  I then colored it with my copic markers.  I used a MFT stacking die for the background. 

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope to see your creations over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies this week.

Crafters of Faith

Today is reveal day for our Crafters of Faith group on Splitcoaststampers.  Jeanette is our host for December and her challenge is from Luke 2:8-10...And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.  An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid.  I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people".

Jeanette challenged us to focus on the words "Do not be afraid".
One of my greatest fears is of heights so I decided to use a die of skyscrapers  because I am not a fan of tall buildings.

Thanks to Jeanette for a great challenge.
