Solitary Cardinal

A Jillian Vance Design, Kecia Waters, Whimsie Doodles, cardinal

It's Monday.  That means there's a post over on the A Jillian Vance Design blog detailing how I made this card.  I hope you visit.

Speaking of visits, I hope a cardinal visits me soon.  There's a little story behind this card.  A few days ago online, I saw mention of how cardinals are actually visits from a loved one who has passed.  Two years ago this week, I lost one of my dear friends to pancreatic cancer.  She is on my mind, and in my heart, and I miss her so much.  Out of all my friends, I thinks she appreciated my handmade cards the most. I miss sending her one, and hearing her thank you that followed. I think she would have liked this one.  I hope I see a cardinal in my yard at some point this holiday season.  I would like to think it would be a visit from Karen.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.

I Got Your Nose

Sassy Cheryl's, Squigglefly, Kecia Waters, multimedia

This card is truly a result of me just playing around.  I printed the digital image of "I Got Your Nose", available from Sassy Cheryl's and Squigglefly, onto kraft cardstock.  I colored the image with a combination of Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.  I have always loved the pop of white on kraft.  The sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.  The finishing touches on this card are a sheer white ribbon, a button, and some twine.

I made this card to play along over on the Squigglefly Challenge Blog.  It's an easy one...make a holiday card.  Make sure you join in on the fun on Squigglefly's last challenge of the year.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.  I truly appreciate it, as I know what a busy time of year it is for us all.  Another post in a few hours, so come back soon!

Block O Shaker Card

Kecia Waters, A Jillian Vance Design

What a great weekend!  A weekend of first shaker card ever, and my Buckeyes are in the very first playoff ever.  So proud of the Ohio State Football Team!

Read all about this shaker card on my post on the A Jillian Vance Design blog today.

Winter Wonderland

Whimsie Doodles, Kecia Waters, A Jillian Vance Design
Isn't it hard to believe it is December already?  Where has this year gone?  This is a card that I am sharing over on the A Jillian Vance Design blog today.  Make sure you visit to find out how I did this background, okay?

The stamp set I used is AJVD's "Winter Woodland" by Whimsie Doodles, and some good old fashioned sponging.  Minimal Copic work on this, and some dots of Copic White.

Though I am back to work today, I am happy to report I made a serious dent in my Christmas card production over the weekend.  Yay me!

Snow Much Fun

Squigglefly, Kecia Waters, Copic markers

Unless it gives me a day off, I'm not much into the snow.  But this cute little dog sure is.  He's having a blast.

This card features the soon-to-be-released (December 5) digital image from James Horvath called "Dog Tricks".  It will be available from Squigglefly.

I decided to use this image for the current challenge on the Squigglefly Challenge Blog.  The challenge is to create a holiday card, but not use the traditional colors of red and green. 

I printed the image on Hammermill Color Copy paper and also printed the image onto masking film.  I cut the mask and put it over my image.  I sponged Distress Ink Peacock Feather onto the card panel and flicked some droplets of water onto the panel.  I added some dots with Copic white to create some snow.  I removed the mask and colored the dog with Copic markers.  I stamped the sentiment from Repeat Impressions with Versafine Onyx Black and added three snowflake charms.

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog today!  Another post in a few hours!

Hey Hot Dog!

Some Odd Girl, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, dachshund

This is a card I made for my Dad.  Today is his birthday, which means he shares his birthday with Thanksgiving, and will probably end up sharing his meal with Sloopy.  I made this card for him, because he will probably see this very look at his feet.  He can't resist her.

I made the card using images and the sentiment from Some Odd Girl's "Preppy Pups".  I'm thinking you can pretty much figure out everything I did, right?  Copic markers, shading with a Prismacolor pencil, Nestabilities circles, sponging, paper piercing, MFT die-namics flag, button, Baker's Twine.  I think the patterned paper is from Doodlebug Designs.

Have a great Thanksgiving!  I am thankful you stopped by my blog, and I am even more thankful I will spend my day with my Dad on his birthday.
