A couple cards...

I finally got these cards colored. I have 3 more sitting that need to be colored in. The girls discovered the watercolor and now I can't get them to leave the stuff alone!! There coloring isn't bad though! Maybe I can get them to color my images!! (LOL) Here is the first card. It is another Christmas card I can scratch off my list. I have used the sketch from Friday Sketchers!! (Thanks Carole!) The sketch was a simple one and I decided to leave the card the same. I didn't want to over load it with embellishments! I rather liked the way it looked without alot! It is different from my other cards! (No distressing).

Paper: CS ~ Bazzil, MME
Inks: distressed inks
Accessories: Flowers ~ Prima, glitter ~ Martha Stewart, brads ~ MM, Sentiment sticker ~ Melissa Frances

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The next card is from the sketch Katharina gave for the DT call. I had a look at the other cards made for this and I am glad I don't have to pick!! Alot of them are gorgeous and I LOVE looking at the slideshow to see all the different interpretations of the same sketch!! I needed to make a thank you card for my parents and I just love this image ~ she is so cute!! I hope they like it!! (LOL)

Paper: K & Co.
Inks: distressed inks and my glitter pen
Accessories: Tag & Charm ~ Tim Holtz, flowers ~ Prima, flower punch ~ Martha Stewart, word window punch, ribbon ~ Melissa Frances


Well I hope everyone had a fabulous week-end! I can't believe tomorrow is the first of December!! Time goes by way to fast......

Lovely cards Kathy! I am sure they are doing a great job with your watercolours - since I would assume they take after their Mom ;-) Kram - Anki
