My Talented niece

One of my favorite gifts I got this year is digis from my niece Kalee. They are adorable. I have only colored 2 of the 6 so far, but will probably get to the others soon. First up is the fairy. I love the eye on her. I colored Her with Copic Markers and used the following colors:

Hair: YR21, 23 and the brown Wink of Stella
Skin: E00, 11, 21, 93
Eyes: B00, 01, 02
Wings: BG10 and Clear Wink of Stella
Outfit: YG01, 03, 05

The second is a self drawing of Kalee in her owl jammies. I also used copic markers on her. Colors are
Skin: E00, 11, 21, 93
Hair: YR 21, 23
Outfit: N02, BG72, 75

If anyone is interested in the digital art of Kalee Paxton let me know.

Thanks for looking!

Merry Christmas Eve to all! This is the card I have made for my Mom. I try to make a card that reminds me of the person I am giving it to and Of the Heart had the perfect image for my Mom this year. Early Summer a baby dove fell from a tree and was injured to the point that it could not be returned to the nest. My Mom has take Chi in and nurtured it to health and now has her as a pet. She loves her little bird and I think she will love this special Chi card.

I love sketches and look for them on Pinterest all the time. There are several blogs that specialize in them and a lot of the time they run challenges with their releases. A few of my favs are: mojo Monday, sassy Sunday and page maps. When I don't have everything mapped out I head to one of these. Here are 2 cards I did with the same sketch. Hope you enjoy your stop here.

Thankful journal

The week of Thanksgiving Tara Clark hosted the challenge on our weekly craft challenge that was to write down every day for a week what you are thankful for. So I decided to do it for a year. I am up to date and have found some pretty cute images to put in so far and have so much to be thankful for. It will be a challenge to keep up on it but I am going to try... I will post as often as I can.
