Catching up

I have been running around and not keeping up on the blog!  I thought I'd add a few cards I have made this month:

 I have a friend or two that does not find joy in the Christmas Season : )  Fun card for them!  This image is by Polkadot Orchard- a digital image. 

This was for a No Stamps challenge- and I used a new die I bought at Hobby Lobby- Sizzix by Ranger/TH inspired.  The green layer has 5 layers of greens!  

A great Thanksgiving image and card.  I colored it using Copic markers.

 New Release from Jan's and I had to go with the cardinal images!

 I so love birds- and Cardinals are a favorite!  This image from Jan's Digital Stamps is precolored. I die cut the border and it is stacked 3 times. I used Distress ink on the top layer . It is added to the DP and the holly added that were cut out using the Scan N Cut, also precolored by Jan. .

ATC or LTC using carved stamps

 I have joined the letterboxing community- and joined in a couple of ATC/LTC swaps recently.
 ATC= Artist Trading card  , LTC = Letterbox Trading card. Letterboxing is a fun challenge- like a scavenger hunt and the prize at the end is an image using the rubber stamp in the letterbox you find.  Info here-
For the Flinstones swap, I carved Fred Bowling and names it Yabba Dabba Doo!  
The image is colored using Copics and on the background- Distress inks and stenciling used. The bowling ball and 3 pins are raised using dimensionals. The sentiment is computer generated. 

Here is the group of LTC's aka ATC's I made:

and Little Blue Dress for the Tulle swap. I carved the dress, fussy cut it out, colored using Copics and added the Tulle overskirt, and the gems and bow. The background is Distress inks, a stencil and a stamped text.

 My friend Sharon aka Foxy Stamper  posted a Scrapbook page about letterboxing, and I was curious and went all in!  It was not the first time she had posted about it, it simply caught my interest at that moment : )  

 I spent a couple of weeks in Colorado and enjoyed visiting my DS, DIL and GS.  My hubby left after a week and my DD1 and DD2 joined in the fun the 2nd weekend there.  I love the Colorado National Monument- the hiking is nice and the scenery beautiful!!!
