Letter to Santa

Happy Monday everyone!!  First I want to give a great big shout out to those that follow me and take the time to leave such loving comments.  You have no idea what a moral boost you give me with each one I read. Even the ones that say "I would have done this differently" for I will try it and sometimes I think "Hey I like that better that way!"  so thank you very much!

Did you have a great weekend? Ours was okay with lots of yard work.  Hubby cleaned up the rest of the leaves outside and I more or less did nothing!! LOL Seriously the only thing I did was work on some cards for customers and that list is getting bigger!! I need to make 38 more Christmas cards and if I don't speed up my rate I will be making them for 2012 orders! The Christmas cards I send out from us are store bought!! Every single year I promise myself I will do ours all year long and they'll be done. Well!! January comes and goes and February seems to early  to be working on Christmas cards and before I know it I am out buying them!  Terrible isn't it!

My card today is using this sweet "Letter For Santa"  image from Elisabeth Bell's Digi's.  I didn't have the right color of Christmas paper to match the rich blue coloring of her snow suit and of course my mojo decided to abandon me big time.  So I found solid blue paper that matched the coloring and drew white snow flakes with a Sharpie marker and added a few 3 D snow flakes! My version of clean and simple!!


 Do you like how big the snow flakes are surrounding the image!?! I thought ok let me use my Pearl pen and sprinkle glitter on top...what was I thinking!!! Now I have these globs of snowflakes but you know what!?! I decided to post it anyway!  In person it's really pretty and the snow flakes sparkle big time!

Copics: Hat and coat: B29, B26, B24, B21. Red: R29, R24, R21. Mail box: C7, C5, C3, C01, C00 Wood: E44, E43, E37, E50. Bird: B16, B12. Mouse: E34, E31.

Beauttiful card Colleen. I love how creative you were to make your own print paper. I don't think my brain can jump out of the box long enough to think to do something like that. Wishing you a sweet Christmas season.

Hi Colleen,

Thanks for the warm visit and the loving comments. This card is cute as ever...LOVE your handmade paper. That is what makes it doubly nice. Super image.

And congrats for all those orders. I can totally understand why you have to buy cards to send. I am often in that position, too.

How are your dear parents doing?

No, I didn't notice how big the snowflakes are, but since you mentioned it, I think the little mouse might be throwing snowballs. ;^)

This is a beautiful card and I love your bright blue with the white and red. You colored the image beautifully too.

Thanks for commenting on my blog.

Hugs,
Teresa

Liz Terrazas said...

Colleen, your card is so beautiful.. Thank you for reaching out with your hello.. I def am a new follower of yours.

Patricia St Martin said...

Even not Christmas colors your card is just darling. For some reason you sound a little down. That is one thing I will not do is buy a card to sent out to anyone. I think if I did that they would think I was mad at them. If I can't get it out for Christmas they will get it later. I send you cyber Hugs and hope you feel better.

Lorraine said...

Hi...I'm Cindy said...

it's gorgeous, love the bow and all the embellies, I don't mind the snow globs as you put it, sometimes the flakes get pretty big out there, lol, I bet it is gorgeous IRL, although pics are worth a 1,000 words, they don't always portray all the beauty for us to behold....but we are crafters and we know that, so we know it's gorgeous IRL :)

Elise said...

Hugs,
Elise
