Penguins Are Present!

Look at these cuties!  The talented Crissy from Crissy's Digis designed this.  You can find it right here.  I colored with my Copic markers and then decided to add some dots to the bow so used my Sharpie pen for that.  I did some doodling around the edges which I always forget to do.  

I am just finishing up a good book I should tell you about.  It is The Heart's Journey Home by Jen Stephens.  I got it at a garage sale this past summer and am really enjoying it.  I hope to read a lot more now with the cold weather closing in on us.  It sure is giving us a preview now.  Brrrrrr after such a nice fall and one of the prettiest falls we have had in years.  Now the leaves are about all gone and we had snow flurries today.  Ok maybe only about 10 but I saw them!  

Until next time, happy trails to you!

Christmas Mice

Ok, I saw this cute Whimsy digital image from LiaStampz called Christmas Mice and had to color it up right away.  But wait!  Remember how I have said how versatile digital images are?  Well, I used the original image but then added the "JOY" from this set from Stamp Art Design by Kathryne.  It was so easy to just set it on top of the ornament and then print it out.  I distressed the edges and then ran an ink pad around them.  I also used a holly die from Whimsy to complete my card.  Oh, I almost forgot, I put Crystal Effects all over the ornament and the glasses on the little mouse to make them really really shiny.  So hop on over to Whimsy and get yourself some fun digital images and try this.

A shout out to Eulanda for making my blog so pretty!  Thanks so much, I love it!!

Until next time, Happy trails to you!!!

Whimsy Digital Snowmen

Oh I can't tell you how much fun this was to color.  These snow people are the best! They are by LiaStampz and can be found right here.  I colored them with my Copic markers and then cut them out with Nestibilities.  I used Distressed White Frantage on everything before assembling.  I thought they needed some wintery trees so cut some out and pop dotted them up for some dimension. Finally put it all on craft paper and called it finished.  

This card is so timely as I hear there were snow flurries in Omaha this morning at 1:30 A.M.  Needless to say, I missed them.  That is fine with me!  But tomorrow we are back to mild weather for a few days!  YEAH!  Oh but the leaves are falling fast and furious.  The trees were so pretty this fall.  I don't remember such a pretty fall for a very long time.  

Oh, and I remember telling you a very long time ago that if I read a book that I really liked, I would mention it here.  I just finished Nicholas Sparks The Longest Ride.  It was excellent.  And now I am reading a new to me author, Jen Stephens.  Her book is The Heart's Journey Home.  It is very good as well.  Time to snuggle by the fireplace and read some good books.  What have you read lately?

Until next time, Happy trails to you
