Mistletoe Gnome Greetings

Well Christmas is fast approaching which means I need to get the Christmas cards done, so today I colored up the adorable Mistletoe Gnome from KLM Digital Designs.  I colored him with Copics, then fussy cut him out, placing him on the background I created with the Paper Rose stencil Stephanie, and the Distress inks Peacock Feathers and Speckled Egg.  The sentiment is an oldie from my stash that I stamped and then cut apart.

Thanksgiving Greetings

Here in Canada we celebrated Thanksgiving on October 12, where we celebrate the harvest, and being thankful for everyone in our lives.  In the United States Thanksgiving is celebrated in late November, and while it is also about being thankful for the harvest and people in their lives, they also celebrate the history of the pilgrams that settled in their country.  This card that I designed uses the Pilgram Girl image from KLM Digital Designs.  I printed the image on to Copic Xpress It cardstock, then colored it with Copics, with a touch of gold ink on the sentiment that is also from this image.

Welcome Fall

Fall is in the air here in British Columbia!  We have brought in all of the tomatoes, and I am slowly cutting down the perennials in preparation of winter slumber.  Yesterday I planted about 80 bulbs of various spring bulbs, and still have about 80 to go in the ground!  Yes I went a little crazy buying bulbs!!
To celebrate the season I have colored up the Pumpkin Girl digital image from KLM Digital Designs. I printed the image on to Copic Xpress It cardstock and colored it with Copics.  Some older Kaisercraft paper finished off the card.

Today's card is another adorable image from KLM Digital Designs - Gnomes and Pets!  I printed the image on Copic Xpress It cardstock, colored with Copics, and then fussy cut it out.  The background was created with a paw print stencil from my stash, and the following Distress Oxide inks - Ground Espresso, Vintage Photo, and Rusty Hinge.
