Merry Christmas

This one is inspired by I-copic challenge.  I used the following copic colours on the Penny black christmas critter stamp -  R29, 0, BG10, E00, E50,. RV23, Yo2, YG06.  I used R29 and 0 on the baubles then clear embossed them, they look bumpy on the photo but they arent.

Why would that be you ask. Well I love to draw, and I have done many drawings, amatuer animations, characters etc over the years.  And I love Stamping, coloring and card making, so today I put it all together.  I hope you like my First digi that I drew myself.  I hope to be able to improve the quality and post some freebies to start off soon.  Does anyone like my ducki?? Are there any name suggestions, the kids like squeaky or woddles (spelt different to the plush toy). I like Clyde or Charlie (after a sweet lil boy I know).  I am very keen to hear if there is any interest in my style of drawing for digi stamps, I will upload a couple more cards in the next day or two.
Hope you all come back and check them out.  Chelle 

UPDATE: go to here and get your  Digi Freebie I have one vote for naming him sqeaky any other votes??

Copics Used:- E50,Y06,Y17,YR04,YR07, BG10, B001, B002

Flower Pot Cards - A favorite of Mine

These cards are a deffinate favorite of mine.  A tutorial can be located on Stephanie Luman's Blog.
It is a very well set out tutorial with the use of stampin up productsm, I have used the stampin up scallp circle punch to make the flowers. My flower pot cards today are made of Kaiser craft products, mainly Christmas Collection Belle.  I love the fact that I can utilize small peices for this project.  Hope you enjoy.
Challenge Entered:-  Raise the Bar Scallops and Curves

I was inspired by a few challenges that I combined to great this card, it is for one of two upcoming birthdays, I can't make up my mind weather it suits an 18 year old girl or a 40 year old woman.  I hope my home made flowers count, I really do need to look for a tutorial on these flowers I am sure that there is a way to make them with less glue.

Hope you like.
