Beautiful Colored Thanksgiving Cards

As some of you might know, I have been doing live Facebook videos for the past week or so.  I try and go live around 5:00 pm Eastern whenever possible.  This was today's live video project.

If you are interested in how these cards were created, with detailed explanation on how I colored the image, and the products used, you can watch the video here:

I hope you will check it out and join me on future live videos.  I usually post earlier in the day if I will be going live that day and what time you can catch me live.  If we are not facebook friends and you would like to view my videos, please send me a FB friend request.  I would love for you to join me.

Hope you like the cards!  Have a great day!

Jump for Joy Frankie Halloween Card

Isn't this just the cutest!  My friend and artist Christy Hartman of  contacted me a while back and asked if I would like to use some of her digital stamps for my cards.  Well, of course I said YES!  This particular stamp is called Jump for Joy Frankie and you can purchase him here  along with all her other fabulous digital stamps.

I colored Frankie using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and Prismacolor colored pencils.  I then gathered up some fun halloween papers and embellishements that I have collected along the way and added a tag and sentiment from Fun Stampers Journey.

This card was so fun to make and came together rather quickly.  I LOVE creating things for Halloween and fall.  The colors are so great to work with and are so bright and cheery.

This is a great card for those of you who don't like to do scary for Halloween.  It would be just perfect to give to your grandchildren, nieces and nephews, etc. as a more fun and playful Halloween card.

Well I hope you will stop by and check out all the creative goodies she has to share.

Thanks for stopping by!

You Make My Heart Sing

Well it feels like ages since my last post, and it actually has been.  Life has a way of keeping us busy and from the things we love to do.  But, I finally made time to create a new card.  I have received several rather large shipments  from Fun Stampers Journey and so now I have lots of goodies to play with.  

This card was lots of fun and used lots of different FSJ products.  I even went as far as to decorate the inside  of the card too.

I used our FSJ heart punch to cut out these fun colorful hearts from scraps of the papers I used.  I think they made for a very cute inside of the card.  I have listed all the items used to create this card below.  All of which are available on my website
