Bunny Card

Another digital design from Etsy and Zlatoena .  I like the flexibility of being able to size the image according to my needs.  I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and gamsol, the background is chalked, the hat band is Stickles.  I used more of the note cards from My Mind's Eye.  The snowflake is a Sizzlet with a button from the stash tied on with Divine Twine.  A little blink to highlight Peace on Earth and another card is waiting to be mailed.
Aloha,
Brenda

Emma Angel

Quick post, love these little Emma Angels.  I got them last year at Cute Stuff.  For this card I used Prismacolor Pencils and gamsol to color all but her face, for that I used Copics and chalk for her cheeks. The wings and her belt are blinged with Stickles.  The background is a Tim Holtz Texture Fade Embossing folder which I love!  I used the white core DCWV cardstock and distress ink around the edge.  The sentiment is also from the angels set.  This was stamped and heat embossed.  I used more of the Divine Twine on this card...wanted to attach a jingle bell, but thought it would be to hard to mail.  Hope your week is going well.
Aloha,
Brenda

Ski Bunny

Don't ya love this little ski bunny?  He is a digital design from Etsy I got here.  Zlatoena designs for TCP.  For this card I used more design papter from My Mind's Eye, the card is actually one of their note cards I also got from Ross (50 with envelopes for $6.99!).  I colored the image using Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  The background is an older Sizzix embossing folder.  The snowflake is also Sizzix from a year or so ago.  I used some of my divine twine to tie on a button from my stash.  I cut the green shape with my Perfect Bracket Edge Die-namic.  Remember to take time to enjoy this wonderful season!
Aloha,
Brenda

Wishing You Peace

I'm not sure where the time goes, but it sure does.  I made this card a couple of weeks ago and am planning to use it for TCP Tuesday challenge.  The dove is from a 2008 release, Elegant Christmas.  It is still one of my favorite sets.  The design paper is from My Mind's Eye (got the stack,54 sheets, from Ross for $9.99!), the ribbon is May Arts, the button is from my stash.  The colors are non-traditional but it works for me.  Have a good week!
Aloha,
Brenda
