Cutie Lil Hedgie

Afternoon everyone.  I have finally made it back.  Internet issues again.  We have been stuck in a deep freeze here for the last couple weeks.  And what's unusual is the amount of snow that we are receiving with it.  Lots of snow, wind, which makes it hard to see.  Alot of white out conditions. But I have managed to make quite a few valentine cards. 
You must stop by Scribbles Designs Challenge to help them celebrate hitting 100 followers.  They will give this cute little hedge hog to use in their current challenge.  Digi stamps and me don't get along that well.  Resizing and printing is a big challenge for me.  I usually just get fed up and the image stays in the computer and I'm back to the old ink and stamp.  This time with some help from hubbie to get it downloaded. I managed without becoming too stressed to resize and print out 3 images.  So I have 2 more to use. 
I've been experimenting with coloring lately.  Trying out markers, but no matter how hard I try, I really don't like the outcome.  My fav is watercolor pencils. But I sometimes find like with this one, that you end up with waves from the water if you are using cardstock and not water color paper.

 Here is the sketch.  Nice and simple.

Friends are Like Chocolate Chips

Afternoon blogland. Well our weather has warmed up today. -9 when I got up with a high of around -2.  Much better. 

Last night I tried my hand at a humorous card, and one-layer.  I like the look of one-layer cards when someone else does them.  Not so much when I try.  But now that I have found One-Layer card blog, maybe I'll get more practice. 

Cute Card Thursday - #302 banish the blues - use humor/fun
One-Layer Simplicity - #1 restocking the shelves

happy crafting

Afternoon everyone.  I hope everyone is keeping warm.  This morning it was -30 here.  So glad I don't have to leave the house.  Today I'm watching Orphan Black Marathon. Momma has taken over the TV.

I have had this image sitting colored and mounted on my desk for a few days.  I just couldn't find a sketch to work with it, so I started going through my paper.  I came across a kit of paper from doodlebug that I've had a few years.  Voila, it all just fell into place.

Happy New Year

I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year.  Hope everyone has enjoyed themselves today.  We had a relatively quiet day.  A little hous construction, blog lurcking, a soak in the hot tub with my son.  After dinner was some zombie time, with a quick game of Last Night on Earth.  One kid in bed and the other two on the  computer gaming I think I'll grab a card magazine and read about some coloring techniques.

All the best in 2014.
