Almost Christmas

Yes, it's almost Christmas, can you believe it? It snuck up on ME for sure. I've only got a few days at best to get my gift box to my sister and her family in the mail or it will surely be late this year. I've been working on a bunch of different projects recently. I've been making some Christmas cards using some of the new Odd Bird Planet images. There are so many new cute images this time, but then I say that every time Johanna releases new images. So cute!!! I colored all these images with my Prismacolor pencils. Nope, no Copics this time. I'm not too excited about those funky snowflakes I drew in the background of this first card, but hey, once the ink hits the paper, what are you gonna do, right? I do love the velvet ribbon, though. Let's say that redeems me for the tacky snowflakes, ok? This next card is a gatefold card. I got a bunch of these cards in a pack at Cat's Craft Cupboard ages ago and I'm just now using them. Besides the card base on the second card, all other paper is Paper Salon's "Dazzle" paper. I think it's last year's paper, but I had it in my stash. I'm trying to use up what I have before I buy more. Yeah right. If you believe that, I've got some swampland in Arizona to sell you. This last card is my favorite, I think. I just like him all colored in the unexpected blue. He looks jazzy, huh? Kind of like you're waiting for him to break out in a jig or something. What kind of dances do you suppose gnomes dance? Is it a gdance? Or a gwaltz? Maybe a ghokey-gpokey?? It's late. My jokes are bad and I'm going to bed now. Thanks for stopping by today!

I really like the cards, especially the blue gnome one.

The new images are really fun. You did a great job with them.

I can't decide if I like your Copic coloring or Prismapencil coloring better. So I just won't choose. So there.

I haven't started shopping yet and Chanukah starts Sunday. Fortunately, it's all books, dvds, booze, and gift cards for my family. Easy peasy.

Christmas is dh's family. So he gets to deal with that. Hah!

Prattle, prattle. TOo much caffeine.
