Autumn Splendor

The first day of fall was 2 days ago and here where we live in this beautiful part of British Columbia the weather is amazing!!  It is like summer weather but with a taste of fall in the air - I always love autumn and the spectacular colors that accompany this time of year.  The leaves are just in the beginning stages of turning colors and the cool crisp evenings and mornings are perfect for walking my dog.  As I am in the autumn mood I decided to make this card. Tilda in her autumn splendor - I love how she is standing and holding her flowers and basket.  I used Bo Bunny Apple Cider Collection 6 x 6 paper pad.  This paper pad has gorgeous fall papers - it was hard to choose which ones to use.  The sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms - I love this sentiment as it really is what fall is all about - a visual masterpiece.  It reminds me to make the most of each and every day as each day we have is so special.  Tilda is colored with copic markers and I have added a Sizzlit die for the background leaves, a flower, jewels and some lace.  Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day and week.

From Halloween to Christmas

Hello - I have been on a long break - lots of different things going on right now - I finally did manage to make a card and this time I made a Christmas card using Make it Crafty Christmas elf  "Twinkles".  I bought the entire Christmas Elves Collection - there are 6 of them all together and they are all just as cute as this one.  I used my Marianne die cut for the circle/star background and the sentiment is cut out of designer paper.  I colored the image using my copic markers and added some shading with prisma pencils (a new technique for me).  I added some sparkle to the bells at the ends of her hat and layered with design paper from my paper stash pile.  Thanks for stopping by for a visit and I hope you have a wonderful week.
