Black Friday

My Dancing Snowman from Ellen Hudson Stamps I just got him and he is so precious. I love snowmen because you can use them for Christmas and for Jan. Feb. & March because spring doesn't pop up for about 4 months after the Christmas holiday. I bought these plastic snowflakes with blue fuzz at the Dollar tree for 50 cents, and I bought a string of snowflakes for 50 cents. I use the pearly string for embellishments on the cards (necklace, bracelet, ribbon bonus, etc. and then I colored the snowflakes with my Copic's to match some Christmas cards. Yes I'm still making Christmas cards although I have all of mine done, addressed and I always try to send them out on Dec. 6th, because that's 'Daddy's Day' (it was his birthday) and I just like him to know I think of him every day. The dancing snowman card was very simple glued the snowflake on the white card, colored Mr. Snowman with Copic's B21, B41, B0000 and W5 with W3 and a little -O-.
Card #2 is and image I got from my friend Sandy and I love this one. That bear cracks me up the first time I saw this I laughed so hard I cried he's so funny. I used Copic's RV19, RV23, RV000, E50,BG13. I used DCWV designer series paper, some paper flowers and silver ric rak.

Another version of Cocoa in the Cocoa cup. I used SU paper in Old Olive, Real red and lots of DSP, rub on stitches and I colored Cocoa with Copics E57, E33, E30, R81, R29, spica's. These have all been fun to make and what I don't sell at 'Head Gamez' (my beautician's shop) I will recycle to the soldiers for winter cards and different salutations. I sell my cards to pay for more card stock. I have so much stuff and I just continue to make cards but no one wants to buy them they don't understand 'Handmade with Love'. So I sell them for $2.00 each and that keeps me going because I just love to make cards!!!

God Bless
