Poof – just like that, it’s Christmas! Happy Holidays everyone and to a fresh New Years just around the corner. 😀 I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. I managed to finish the pink Llamazing Llama that I’ve had sitting on my desk for over a week. He’s been colored and waiting for a background card to work on. Here she is… her soft plush coat is on it’s way to a crafty knitter looking for just the right color pink. Oh yeah!
I thought this Deck the Halls mouse would be perfect in the Holiday Snowglobe Outlines die set. I colored the base with a wood grain texture and the rest of the card with pastel colors. It was a fun card to put together. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and a very Merry Christmas!!
Everyone loves these penguins and this, Penguin Flies, one was just as fun to color. This one is done with watercolors at Jennifer’s retreat. I was able to put all my watercolor images onto cards this year and have caught up from the pile that is on my desk. Phew, that feels nice and just before the New Year so I don’t have to make any uncalled for New Year’s Resolutions. LOL My favorite part on this one is the Atlas Jar (small size), of course, which can be used for just about anything!!
The next few days I thought I would take the time to make and share Christmas cheer with the images that I colored last year at Jennifer’s Boot Camp. For those who where there, I was the black sheep in the back coloring with my watercolors. LOL So yes, this is watercolor on Hammermill paper. I think I got pretty close to the real-deal lesson, do you? This Gingerbread Man and all the dies are from Whimsy Stamps.
Are you tired of cutting out your balloons? I’m excited to share that Whimsy has released a new coordinating balloon die set to match. Awesome!! Now you can find Happy Day Balloons clear set and Happy Day Balloons die set together.
This card was made at the 2022 Sproatmeyer’s Coloring Toolbox Retreat as a variation. I had many balloons colored as practice so I built a few more cards with them. Waste not, want not, right? I have two more scheduled for 2023 and would love to “fill them up” – but don’t worry, with less than 20 members, it’s still cozy and personalized. Come join!
There are two llamas in the Llamazing Llama clear set and I think this one is easily overlooked. But how can you say no to this cute little face?! Everyone has a bad day once in a while and needs a hug and true friends are there to give those hugs day after day after day. I thought this llama getting sheered was a good analogy for just that occasion! I love the expression and think it can be interpreted for many different things. Oh ya! So if this isn’t in your collection yet, I’m tellen’ ya, you’re gonna’ love them. 😉 P.S. No counting the number of dies I used on this one! I went a little crazy. LOL
