5Th Day of Christmas

Here is my final card that I did for Christmas. Well major card anyways. I have to say this one I think is my absolute favorite. I just love the way it turned out. I know I'm not the best colorer in the world like some, (like Kristina Werner , Jennifer McGuire or Sandy Allnock just to name a few off the top of my head that I follow and get so much inspiration from.) but I do have to admit I am really proud of myself for this one. I think this is the best one I have colored yet with my Copics. what do you all think? did I do a have decent job?

4Th Day of Christmas

Today I colored a cute Snowman. I had so much fun coloring him. If I can't go to the snow at least I can color some snow pictures. LOL!! I sure hope you all like him as much as I do.
I am so sorry that I forgot to write down the colors that I used, but I did color him in Copics.
This darling image is by Inky Antics and doesn't have a name. You can also turn him into an ornament. How cute would that be. I just might have to do that in the next couple of days.
    My daughter is adjusting to being home but still can't do a whole lot of walking as it tires her out and her leg begins to swell. So she mainly stays on the couch with her legs up.
Well I have to get ready for an annual Christmas party so until tomorrow. Happy crafting to all.

3RD of Christmas

On the 3RD day of Christmas my true love sent to me Three French Hens. Not in this House anyways but I did make you all another card. Can you all guess what kind I made you today?
You guessed right another shaker card!! I couldn't resist. I was having so much fun with the first one that I thought why not this one two!
This card is by Stampendous and it is called Jolly Santa
Cuff & Beard- C3,1,00
Holly -G17,14,12
Berries - R29,27,24
Sequins -Hobby Lobby
Cut outs of Merry Christmas- Hobby Lobby
Tiny Cookie Cutters- Hobby Lobby
Seed beads- Tuesday Morning
I know it seems like a lot of different things inside of this shaker card, but this card is a big card.

On a good note today, My daughter is finally home from the hospital. Her children were so happy to see her and so was I. It was a little touch and go for a little bit there. She still has the blood clots in her leg but they are a little smaller now so she gets real tired real fast from walking and her leg looks real red still but at least it isn't as swollen as it was.

Well no I'm going to get back to making more cards and wrapping some presents.
till tomorrow have a very fun and crafty day. I know I will!

Tag for 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist-2014

Boy did I have lots of fun making this tag. I have always loved Kittie Caracciolo's style of everything she does, so it was a real easy choice for me to make when I had to decide whose  style I wanted to make a tag after. So here it is.
I will also be doing at least 5 cards for Christmas if not more. I am juggling a lot right now with my daughter in the hospital with blood clots in her legs and possibly one in her lung and taking care of her daughter. Of course my granddaughter Alexis has been a dream. She has really been very well behaved with manners I just can't believe. I want to know who has taken my granddaughter and replaced her because normally her manners are not all well lets just say she has them when she really wants something. LOL
Ok so I will go for now since Alexis is in school for the day I can finally get a few things done.
Thanks for listening to me rambling on.
