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 have to look up the water coloring on you tube. I wonder if it is something that I would enjoy doing...

Thinking about making some more Christmas cards today.

I don't want to invest in them either. People color so beautifully with them but...I just keep telling myself my pencils are good enough.

most of the time my cards take me longer than a lo.
I am so picky about my cards and waste more stuff trying to make them perfect lol.

I water color my stamps with distress inks and a very small paint brush. I have watercolor pencils but i have not used them that much.

Amy i know what you mean by wanting to change your images. I now have magnolia. lotv, whimsy and one art impressions stamp. I make a lot of my cards for kids so cutsie is alright for me right now.

Lisa i hope you get back to creating. I have tried to post something every day. I missed one day so far. but yesterday was hard. i did not feel like making anything.

Hi Anna and Stephanie those are lovely. I need to take a closer look in your Gallery.

I made some identical Christmas cards on Saturday. I posted one in my blog if anyone is interested. The challenge was non-traditional colours and I chose white, kraft and pink. I kind of love them!

You just need a leaf stamp, some cardstock and ink and you can make your own fall paper. I've been doing a lot of that in my cardmaking these days. I rarely use patterned paper on my cards anymore.

Great cards Stephanie!

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!

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 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.

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!

Have a great day ladies!
