I can't believe it has been almost a year since I last posted! 2016 has been a hectic year here in the Butchart household & there just didn't seem to be enough hours in the day for crafting. Things have settled down a bit now so, I'm back in action.
This adorable little snowman & his bird friend are from Bugaboo Stamps. I just love this image and he was fun to colour with copic markers. The DP is My Minds Eye Comfort & Joy series & the sparkley snowflake is Banbury Snowflake by Memory Box. It's a little hard to see in the picture but there is Stickles (my favourite embellie!) on the snow & of course on the snowflake. Hope you like the card!

I made most of my Christmas cards for this year using the adorable "giggling snowman" by Mo Manning. I coloured them up in various colours, used different gorgeous designer papers & dies & voila....done! This non traditional colour combo was one of my favourites....copics BG11 & BG13 & his cute little carrot nose was done with YR04 & YR07. The paper used here is "Falling Snow" by Fancy Pants & the die is Winterflake Border from Memory Box. The sentiment is from Beccy's Place & the gems from the $1 store. Thanks for taking a look.

This has to be one of the most beautiful images I have ever coloured....she is called Star Dancer & is one of many gorgeous images by Mitzi Wiuff of Aurora Wings. I've had her for over a year but was afraid of her! lol Have you ever had one of those images you were afraid to colour? I've coloured her with copics & although it is pretty hard to see in this picture there are little stars on her dress that I used diamond Stickles on. An image like this doesn't need much decorating so I just punched stars out of the white CS to show the pink CS underneath & then added a die cut flower (Memory Box) & pearl in the center.

I have a very dear friend who will be celebrating her 65th birthday next week & one of the greatest loves in her life are horses.....her husband & Labrador retrievers are right up there too! We recently went to see an amazing show called Cavallia....Odysseo which features 64 gorgeous horses & some very talented humans. I was in awe of not only the beauty of the horses but also how intelligent they were. It was incredible to watch them go through their routines with no one touching them. If you get the chance to see Odysseo be sure you go. You will not regret one minute of it!
This beautiful image is a Serendipity stamp (thank you Sue!!) which I coloured with Prismacolor pencils. It looks just like one of Darlene's horses called Tante, white blaze & all. I used kraft cardstock with the perfect DP from Kaisercraft to create a gatefold card. A few little horseshoes, some bronze brads & a jute "rope" & voila, there you have it, the perfect card for a horse lover!

This is sort of a cross between a Thanksgiving & a Halloween card.....the pumpkins, wheat & scarecrow say harvest time to me but the witches hat, ghost & bats are definitely Halloween....maybe I should call it a Thankoween card! tee hee Anyway, the pumpkins & fence are a digital image from My Whimsical Little World that I coloured with copics. The scarecrow, wheat & ghost embellies are by Sandy Lion & the awesome DP is Echo Park. You can join in the monthly challenge over at MWLW here. It is always anything goes & you can use any image. If you use a MWLW image you get an extra entry in the draw. Come join in the fun & maybe win some of Paola's awesome images in the process.
