Happy Tuesday! I am so glad to be back to share my latest card with you. My Mom was in the hospital throughout the entire summer and then required rehab after her hospital stay. Thankfully, we have her home now and she is getting better each day! Thank you to all who sent their best wishes for her!
I decided to try to make some holiday or winter cards a bit earlier this year. Seems I wait until the holidays are upon us and then the hustle and bustle takes over and… well you know! For my card, I selected for a second time this favorite Mo Manning digital winter image, “Winter Fairy Talva”. She is sooo much fun to color! Of course, she is colored with copic markers- felt good to be practicing again with them!
The design paper is Kaisercraft 6×6 paper pad, “Christmas Wishes”. It is so pretty and filled with non-traditional colors such as these pale lavender and turquoise as well as mint greens and rich golds. I embellished the card with Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, hand dyed seam binding, lace and pearl/rhinestone bling from Live and Love Crafts. The branch die is from Tim Holtz. I added a few silver beads among the flowers and my sentiment, which is a wood stamp from who knows where! LOL! Oh the stash we collect.
One last look:
Feels great to be creating again. Thank you so much for visiting and as always, for your kind comments. I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
