Love is in the Air

Good afternoon to all my friends in blogland.  Quick post before it's off to work for me on this cold day.  We are in another cold snap.  -24 last night, and not much warmer today.  It was -17 at lunch time when I slipped out to pick up my daughter from her last exam.  Now she has a four day weekend before starting her next semester.

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.

Jingle Belles - Bring in the New

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. 
Jingle Belles - Bring on the new
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. 
happy swinging

Evening everyone. Quick post before I'm off to the high school for grade 9 information night for my son. Today I tried out my Gelato's on an art journal page. A little doodling on it and stencil and gesso.

Where Does the Time Go?

I just can't believe when my last post was.  The days are just flying by.  The house is germ free once again. We managed to make it through Christmas and New Years.  And everyone has returned to work and school.  Although the kiddies had a short week.  It has been very cold and snowing here all week.  Thursday the roads were very slippery.  It should have been a snow day for the kids, but no off to school they went.  Well on the way home my sons bus ended up sliding off the road into a ditch.  With more snow Thursday and Friday, the buses didn't run. Here's hoping this snow stops soon.  I'm tired of clearing out the driveway. 

 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.
