Good Bye Wisconsin Hope to see you next year!

I am sitting here at the airport in Green Bay waiting to board my flt back home to Massachusetts.  I had such a wonderful time with family and friends.  With limited crafting supplies I made this card.


This is a digital stamp so I brought it up on my laptop and traced the image onto a lightweight cardstock.  I tried to use colored pencils but wasn't getting the result I desired.  So I colored the image with a standard pencil and added a little pink.  I was pleased with the image so I cut it out, added texture and doodles, and layers to complete the card.  This is polka Dot Pals Tracey and you can find her here.  Going to board the plane soon.  Hope you like it.

Hugs and smiles,
Janice

LMMS Anything Goes Challenge 169

Hello friends!  We have a new Anything Goes Challenge 169 at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I used this wonderful Front door card kit.  Barbara's card kits are fantastic, packed with lots of goodies!  I changed my design a little to show that you can do it another way.


I scored the blue cardstock to make it look like the siding on a house.  I stamped a blue door and colored the door frame to look like wood.  I like Barbara's sample better, but think this one is okay too!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,
Janice

Sunbonnet Strawberry

Hello friends!  Today I have a sweet card to share with you made with this darling image, Sunbonnet Strawberry Watering Can.


I used Prismacolor colored pencils only to color this image.  I colored the strawberry twice and cut one out to embellish the sentiment strip.  I used some cutting dies to cut out the image and to frame it out.  Hope you like it!  Have a great day!

Hugs and smiles,
Janice

Summer Birthdays

Hello everyone!  Can you believe it is already July 20?  I wish life would slow down a bit.  I have made a cute birthday card in honor of summer birthdays!  All 3 of my boys were born in the summer.  My sister and niece are celebrating theirs tomorrow.  Have a very Happy Birthday Bonnie and Jackie!!!


This is Cuthbert Balloon.  I have used only colored pencils to color this cutie.  Colored pencils were my go to medium for  the longest time.  I have loved them since I was a child, and still do.  Have a great day everyone!

Challenge #167-Anything Goes

Hello friends!  Time for a new challenge #167 Anything Goes.  For my card I chose Polka Dot Pals Zaneta.  She is holding a sweet little chick.


Isn't she sweet?  She's been colored with copics and colored pencils.  I drew her face.  I love to practice drawing faces on the Polka Dot Pals.  I still need lots of practice but I enjoy it anyway.  Have you ever given it a try?  As always, thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs and smiles,

Polka Dot Pals Jennifer

Hello friends!  Here is a card I made when I traveled to Arizona for the advanced copic coloring retreat.  The stamp Pdp-Jennifer was made by Barbara, artist and owner of Little Miss Muffet Stamps, for her friend Jennifer.  Jennifer is the instructor of the copic classes I have attended.  She is fun, talented, and sweet to "boot".  You can learn more about her here.


She's been colored with Copics and white gel pen on her skirt.  We were given a kit with the papers inside and then chose our copic colors accordingly.  I usually color first and find papers later.  Having the papers picked first makes it a bit easier, but old habits die hard. ;)  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and smiles,
Janice
