Fairy Magic

I just love these fairies.  The silhouettes are so pretty along with the sentiments. They make a simple, yet elegant card.
I colored the wings with copics and then painted over them with extreme glitter paint.
The background paper on the second card was created using Gesso and a stencil.  After the Gesso dried, I used ink daubers to add a little color.  I love the way it turned out and can't wait to create more projects with it.

Autumn Leaves

Fall is my favorite time of year.  I love the colors, cooler temperatures and all of the fun activities.  Since both my boys are in college now, I kinda miss the years spent in the football stadium watching them perform in the marching band and also coaching their soccer teams.  What fun times we had together.  
This is my project for the current challenge at Aud Sentiments. Our theme is Fall Fun + A Sentiment. I hope you join us.

Christmas Ornament Card

The challenge this week at 52 CCT is to create a shaped card. 

At the time I created this card I was still having some trouble wearing my glasses due to  my surgery so I created a simple card.   
I used the Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge and created this simple ornament card.  I cut a couple layers so I could have white stripes.  I then used white glitter for a little extra interest.
Hope you join u s in the challenge.

Snowman Card

This is the first card I have made in a couple of weeks. I had surgery on my nose and it was difficult to craft with swollen eyes.  Now that I am back to normal, I decided to ease myself back to crafting with more simple card.  
This is my card for the current 52 CCT. The challenge is to create a card for a child.
