I've been working on this little girl for almost a year.  The reason it took so long was that my marker had one of those gush out the tip moments and I didn't know if I could clean it up or not.  Now that you know, you can probably see where that occurred.  I was almost half done and then put it away so I could look at it anew.  I think I saved it for the most part.

Christmas In July

  Die Cut Divas is celebrating Christmas in July and so am I!

I'm in the mood to get started on the Christmas cards and here are two of my first Christmas cards this year!  Even though the base is the same, these are totally different cards.

Arlene went for ice cream, just because. I think the image is cute and fun and perfect for the summer. I picked up this hearts paper quite awhile ago and doubt it is in stock any more, but it certainly made this a card from the heart.

This guy is layered and layered and layered. I didn't know when to stop, I guess. This little dog was fast and easy to color (image is in black & white and pre-colored). I just took Copic marker B000 and make diagonal lines across the panel after I was finished, found a sentiment I liked (Hero Arts) and started layering in white and blues.

Card Chain Challenge - The Card I sent My Partner

It's so much fun to decide what to make for your partner who will be receiving your card.  We could have chosen any or multiples of the selections below.

I just went for the beach scene and I'm glad I did because I love how it turned out.
I had a new rubber stamp and matching die I wanted to color and use.  I don't think she even minds the sand in her high heels.  Of course a beach is nothing without Elizabeth Craft Designs sandy beach and waves with Palm trees and pail.  I colored the palm fronds and the lovely young lady from Rubbernecker with Copic markers.  The sand and Palm trucks are sponged with distress inks.
