Jungle Bells 1

Hi everyone! This is Jungle Bells 1, an image I did for Whimsy a few years ago. I have a video which I did on the Whimsy Facebook page today, showing how I coloured this guy's hat! I happened to use Copic markers. If you want to go check it out and watch me colour, here's your link to the Whimsy page on FB, and just scroll down until you see my face and the video! The following few days are going to be really fun because it is Whimsy's 10th birthday, and Denise of Whimsy Stamps has a lot of games for you to play and lots of chances to win Whimsy goodies! So head on over there to find out all the ways you can enter! I even have a little thing going on - if you comment on the video I made, you are entered to win a draw for this card! I will send it to one randomly chosen commenter. So head on over to FB to enter!
Thanks so much for looking!

Here is "Fawn", a digital image I did for Whimsy Stamps! It does triple duty as a spring image, new baby image, or as I have shown here, a Christmas image! It's one of Santa's new reindeer born at the North Pole, and its lying on a bed of sparkling snow!  Well, a girl can imagine, right?  This is actually another shaker card made with the help of Whimsy's Shaker Maker Combo Die set.  I used crushed glass glitter for the "snow" inside the shaker portion. Paper was from my stash.  I painted the rim of the circle and the outer edges of the designer sheet with a gold paint for some added shine. 
I coloured "Fawn" with Copic markers. The sentiment is from an older retired set of red rubber at Whimsy Stamps. Here is your close-up of the coloured image:

Penguin Elves At The Workshop

Hi Peeps! I've got Penguin Elves At The Workshop on display for you today! Looks like they're kinda busy, as I'm sure they are at this time of year (snort!)
This is a digital image I did for Whimsy Stamps, and so is the green background paper.  It's a sheet from the "Christmas Red, Gold and Green" pack.  I had a lot of fun drawing the floor and wreath background to make it look like they were in a room.  The elves are a combination of Copic markers and coloured pencil, and the floor/wreath/wall background is just Copics. 
Here is a closeup:
The beautiful chipboard sentiments are from Make It Crafty, and Whimsy Stamps sells them for those on the Western Hemisphere. I coloured them with a red Copic marker.
Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Unicorn

I'm on a shaker-card-roll right now and I love it! Here I have a card using the Shaker Maker Combo Set from Whimsy, as well as my Christmas Unicorn, which is a digital image just released this month.  Also, I used a sheet from my Christmas Traditions digital paper!  I filled the shaker with crushed glass glitter for a sparkly snowy look.  I also glued some to the star and the bell in the image. 
The sentiments are chipboard elements by Make It Crafty which are also sold at Whimsy Stamps!
I coloured the image, sky and snow using Copic markers, and used a white gel pen and a snow writer for the snow drops coming down in the sky. 
Here is your close-up (the snow-writer was still wet so you can see the bubbles in the blobs):
