When I saw that the inspiration for one of the challenges was coffee and a book I had a hard time choosing one idea, so I will be submitting to this challenge more than once. This is just the first thing that worked with the other challenges that I was working on. I think the only thing that could have made this inspiration more of a challenge for me to narrow down what to do is if you added a pet to the equation.
I could use a hot drink right now. It is really cold here right now! Not getting snow cold, so I shouldn’t complain. Yeah, I am still going to complain. I have hit a point in life where I do not like it to be very cold.
So many Christmas cards being made right now! I love it! I actually fall asleep and wake up with thoughts of what pieces are going to go together to make the next one. I think the hardest part for me is keeping up with the making all my ideas and getting them all posted, and actually, you know living (this is when I get mad at myself that going to the bathroom takes to long).
One of my nephews is turning five on Thursday, and his party was yesterday. I made this card for him. I was going to just make this a card with the balloons and the banner to be a bit closer match to the sketch, but I really like how the penguin looks holding the balloons. I figure the sketch is really a starting point anyway and that it is always good to go with whatever happens from there, so if a penguin needs to be a part of things so be it.
When one of my nephews was little (the one I talk about the most) I watched him daily while his mom was at work. Ok, yes that is true for most of them on and off, but this one was more of a fulltime thing. Back to the point, I would always sing to him, and this was what I considered his song because he was my sunshine. He did always make me happy, he still does, except now he tells me he isn’t but I am pretty sure that comes with being nine. read more
Lately, I have really been trying to push myself to try something a little different on each card if I can. It might be something little, but at least I want to have tried something that might not be my normal way. This time I cut my digital image differently and it really made a big difference on this card! read more
