Today I have mad a one-layer card. This cute little image was colored with Spectrum Noir blendable pencils. I still need more practice with them. I doodled lines around the edges with little squigglies.

Good evening everyone. Well the temperatures were a little better this week. Started out cold, but by the end of the week it was bearable. And no snow, other than a dusting last night.
I have been working on this card all week. The start of the week I sat down to color. I actually did two of the same image. One painted with new watercolor paints, and this one using my new Spectrum Noir blendable pencils. I like the pencil one the best so decided to use it.
Today I finished my card. After struggling for awhile to get the embossing the way I wanted. The Cuttlebug folders don't quite fit a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card face. The bakers twine I made myself. And the Merry Christmas I only had in gold, so I colored it with a Sharpie marker in silver.

Tomorrow is off to a badminton tournament with my son. It's just a fun day for the kids. Round robins, no keeping track of who wins, and no medals or trophy's. And they get pizza for lunch. I think that's why most of them are going.

For Christmas I received Spectrum Noir blendable pencils. I have been playing around with them learning how to color. Printing off the color charts from their site and colored them all in, and stamping some images to practice on. It is going to take some work to get the hang of them.
I'm to finish up my calander. I've been adding check off boxes, stickers and filling in important dates. Writing in everyones birthday and anniversary. Maybe this will be the year I actually make and send out cards.
