Seriously Sick of Making Christmas Cards ...

I'm spending our time off from the routine of school in the craft room.

I'm trying to use all off the pre-printed images that I have.  This little cutie is from Dilly Beans.  They are such fun to color. I'm experimenting and trying to give texture to the images using darker colors and my white pen.

I'm using the sketch from Try Stamping On Tuesday blog.  I rotated the sketch to fit my image but I DO like how the card turned out.

My next card is using a Bugaboo image and the sketch from the Stella Says Sketch site.

I made the card a square but pretty much stuck to the sketch to finish the card (kinda unusual for me!)


  1. Joanna, your penguin card is so adorabke! I love how big his face is, it really makes him pop. Someone will love getting this card for Christmas!
