Santa's Power Nap

I kind of rushed this one to get it in for the challenge at Phindy's Place Blog, the challenge is piece stamping.  My first time doing a digi piece stamp & it was fun.   Here is the link to Phindy's store she has lots of fantastic digis.

I printed the chair on green & embossed with my cuttlebug, his pants are pieced as well as his hat, colored with my Copics, some glossy accents & glitter.

A Few Winter Cards

 When I saw this little girl sipping her hot chocolate at Phindy's I just had to add her to my collection of digis from Phindy, she is just too adorable.
 Another Phindy Digi, this winter house with the little girl in the bottom are both from Phindy.  I love coloring her artwork, it is so well done.
This is Frozen Pond from High Hope Stamps with my little Magnolia couple skating from Magnolia-Licious

Now that I have a start with these 3 I look forward to having more fun in the snow, on my cards that is.

Bird Whisperer

Seven Deadly Sins

This stamp from Bildmalarna was a must have.  She reminds me of an old party/drinking buddy from the 70's.  She was just so darn happy go lucky.

Kissed Butterfly & Flowers

This is the "kiss" technique I haven't done this one in years but reminded of it on a challenge blog.  Basically I inked a solid stamp in pink (butterfly), then I inked a background leaf stamp with purple, gently let the stamps "kiss" each other, then I put the image to paper.  I've done the same thing with the flowers below.  The background was done using both stamps individually. 

I have to add this: the card is 4 1/4 by 6, not by choice I cut the 4 1/4 side from a 12x12 but for got I hadn't cut the other end yet, couldn't figure why it wasn't working...................opppppps

My New Car

I've been playing around with distress inks, this is what I've come up with, then sprayed a little gold over it.  This is my favorite car by Magnolia, I think the card still needs something.......hmmmmm  Any suggestions?

Yoga Lady

Another digi from Phindy's Place, I love her stuff, this is from her new "Plump' Uns".  When I saw this one I thought of a good friend, me & our knees, yes, she will be getting this card.  She used to do Yoga, but is afraid if she gets down now she won't be getting back up too easily or elegantly :>)  We are both in our 60's, no one warned about our knees going with age.......LOL

Mugwhump on a Fence

This little darling is from Bildmalarna Stamps.
