Parent's Aniversary

I am in Illinois visiting my parents before I go to visit my daughter and her newest baby. I don't have a lot of stuff here but I did this card, thinking of Valentine's Day but my mom asked to have it to give to my dad for their 50th aniversary. The couple stamp is from Stampin Up. The words are from Close to my heart. I colored it with colored pencils.

Bright January

My new job is taking my whole life. I hope it changes soon. I did find time to do two quick cards tonight. The images were given to me so I didn't even have to stamp them. I had already colored the Magnolia stamp. I got the paper and chipboard from Tuesday Morning. I thought they were bright and sunny cards for a cold, snowy winter day.

I will be sending this one to my Mother in Law. Her birthday is tomorrow.

This will be a birthday card for a woman from church.

House of Mouse Birthday card

There was a swap on JustCards that you sent another person the materials to make at least 2 cards. I got my stuff from Karen in Canada and this is the card I made. I also used the embossed paper from another swap. I colored the image primarily with Copic markers.  It was fun to make and came together pretty quickly.

Ribbon Card

I had a new swap for JustCards. It was a ribbon card and since my partner received her card, I can show it to all of you.  The background was given to me in an embossed paper swap. I got the butterfly and flower ribbon at Michaels. The girl is a stamp from I Brake for Stamps. I colored her with a bit of colored pencil. I used Copic marker E00 for the skin. I use that almost always.
