A Very Progressive Post

I decided to play along with a couple of Progressive challenges- First, From the Heart:

 I used to play along for quite a while when it was known as D2D, so I thought I would give it a go again : )   I used the Sketch 139 at From the Heart as well. I added lots of shimmer using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen, and I added glitter onto the liquid applique on the hat. Who doesn't love a snowman and Hot Chocolate?

               Next is the Outlawz Progressive Freebie for Feb.- another Monthly image challenge.


 The image was provided by Outlawz member Teresa Arsenault.  I colored the image with Copics. I added white dots to her skirt with a paint pen, I pulled out some really old DSP from SU- and cut into it...... I recently moved my 12 x 12 and decided it was time to start using lots of it.......

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend : )

I love what you did with the FTHS Stamp of the month Shelly! Those colors are perfect for him. I've yet to make mine and I hope I can get to it before the end of the month!

And your second card is so cute as well!

OMGosh - Designed2Delight! Had to look in my digi stamp folders, that is a blast from the past. I actually used all but 2 of the stamps I have of Faith's on cards and her images were fun to work with. I like the card you made. Kinda made me feel chilly, even down here in "springy" Texas, lol. xoxo

The snowman looks good in blue! I saw Jeanette's the other day in all pink. Both cards equally cute :)

Your 2nd card is lovely. That frame around your image is beautiful!

You really rocked the progressive challenges! I love the snowman. Faith just does a wonderful job with the snowman. What a fun card. You really did a great job with the sketch. Thanks for the reminder to do the Outlawz challenge. I'd forgotten about that one. Very cute. Have a great week!

These are just lovely Shelly. I have to admit, I'm a huge snowman fan, tee hee. Love the blue tones for a winter card! Great image on your second card as well, good luck with your challenges. hugs :)

these are great - as always.

yeah, the roof thing sucks, but it's due. sorry about your transformer.

i DO wear compression socks tho i think my doc wants me to wear more of a support sock.
try getting those on when your inner thigh hurts like hell and you the pain is worse when you go to put socks of any kind on! which is why she thinks it's a vein problem.

old age - sweet huh? LOL

have a great week.

hugs :)

Hugs, Tammy

Love both of these Shelly! I really love all the shimmer on the first one (and so glad to see you playing along again)! The second has the most gorgeous color scheme. I hear you on the 12 x 12 paper, I've got to try to make a dent in my hoard, lol!
