YIKES! Oh Man....I hope NOT! I think I may have only 2 or 3 of the 50 cards I need done and it is almost September. That is when I typically think of Christmas card making and get my act in gear so at least I have a two card head start on that!
While some people have whined about the heat we have had this summer, I've kinda enjoyed it. Which is weird because I DO NOT like heat and humidity but last summer it was so cold and rainy her in SW Ontario it made for a lousy summer and a winter I was no where near ready for. Now as much as I dislike humidity, I REALLY hate snow! REALLY DO! And when it gets cold here, it is not just cold, it is cold AND damp so you just get chilled to the bone.
Now the good thing about winter is that I do like to make Christmas cards...I don't get all crazy decorating my house or anything, but I do enjoy sending a little handmade love to my friends and family and I think they enjoy receiving them. It is kinda like my little gift sent in an envelope! Now that I'm done babbling on about the weather and getting all gushy about making xmas cards I'll show you Glideabella looking all soft and pretty in her turquoise and beige outfit.
As always, she was stamped on Bella's bestest paper and coloured with the following copic markers (I'm thinking I just might add this as an automatic signature or something to save me from typing it ever time!)
E000, 00, 11, R20, 27
C00, 0, 1, 6
BG0000, 000, 11, 13
E30, 33, 35, 40, 42, 43
To finish her off I used my prismapencil pencils and gamsol/oms. And YES folks, you CAN use your pencils and OMS to shade over your copic markers!!!! I do it almost EVERY time! The little snowflakes were punched with an old Fiskars corner punch...one of the VERY first punches I bought. Some were punched in ivory vellum and some in beige paper but all got a little dab of Cream Viva Decor Pearl Pen in the centers....love how this stuff holds it dimension! The happy holidays sentiment also incorporates another fav product of mine, scrap dots! It is a silicone glue and with just a few dots and you can mount anything and keep it level even on uneven surfaces!
That's it for today folks...I think my next post will be back to something summery again...a little Hot Stuff for ya!
And don't forget...just because the babe challenge is over bellarific fridays continue and our challenge next week is anything animals!!!!!!!!!
