I like the watercolor pencils too. I can't bring myself to spend the money on copics. They're expensive and it would be an experiment for me. Not sure if I could get into coloring but I'd sure like to give it a try.
I really need to get out and leave some love on those cards...
Danielle I used to think the same thing about my cards. The good thing about having friends on SB.com is that no one will make fun of your work, they point out the good parts on your cards and with the encouragement and love other people will leave on your cards, your confidence will grow. You make great cards!
I have the same issue, I think everyone's work is better than mine, but that's why I love this group. Helps keep us motivated and picks up our confidence. I really wasn't sure about one of the cards I posted but am feeling better about it now.
I think I've finally completed my Christmas cards. Why, oh why do I want to make more? All the new Christmas lines coming out...dies...stamps....papers, oh my! I just want to buy more and make more. I had so much fun making them this year I never want it to end.
hi girls. I took a break for the last few days. I was making something everyday for the challenge on here and just burnt my self out. I got to the point i did not even want to enter my craft room.
I love the book card on splitcoast stampers. I think i might try and do that card for my Christmas cards. I ordered a fancy pants line that is fall colors. I am not really fond of fall papers and all the leaves and that is why i dont own any lol.
Lisa i know what you mean by all the cute christmas stuff. I want to order a bunch of the new magnolia Christmas stamps.
I am really hooked on Lil' Inker Designs Christmas line. Actually I love all their stuff from last year more than the new stuff even. Great dies and sentiment stamps. I have invested more in Christmas supplies this year than I ever have.
I haven't been scrapping either but I needed a boost so I joined some challenges and so far this month I have made three pages. They're no where near as beautiful as some of the others but I think I will get the hang of it one of these days.
Donna lovely card, so bright and cheerful...that should make their day.
I will post some cards that I complete this weekend. I have several birthday cards to work on for a birthday card swap..so I will put the links in here.
Hi ladies and hope you don't mind a new joiner to your group. I have been around the board for ages now..so not a newbie here..lol
Stephanie I think you need to give me pointers on how to be that early! I have never in my life been this early for addressing Christmas cards. I have a whale of a time getting ONE birthday card out on time much less an entire list of Christmas cards. You are officially my role model!
I have to finish making Christmas cards for myself, my mom and possibly some aunts and grandma. My brother just told me that he wants a missing you card for his girlfriend so I am assuming that is at the top of my list right now.
I have them made but still not signed and addressed yet. But this is the earliest I've ever had them done. I even had time to make some to give to a card drive this year to give to nursing homes. I had so much fun, I hate to see it end. For the first time ever I think I may just make up a bunch of gift tags too.
uhhh oohhhh! I made another xmas card I need to stop lol. I had extra xmas cards that I was going to send to my cousins kids, from Elf/Santa...well I just thought they were too boring and lovely pinterst had to inspire me. Soooo, I made another xmas card and now want to make more.
Found this waterfall card on a youtube video and pinterest, cannot take credit for the design.If you pull the bottom piece, the images cascade.
That's a cute card Stephanie. I know how you feel, I can't seem to stop making Christmas cards either. I ended up donating some because I had more than I needed. I've been having so much fun with them this year.
Hi ladies. I have to laugh at myself -- I joined this group a few weeks ago and forgot to mark it as a favorite! I've been super busy with a couple of craft fairs, but I think I'm just about done. I finished up a basket of handmade cards for my church's Turkey Rama this weekend, and now it's time to start my own Christmas cards!
I, too, had put scrapbooking on the back burner as I got caught up in card making, but I went to an all day crop this weekend and completed 6 layouts. It felt good to get some of my pictures scrapped!
