Winter Joy…..

Welcome OCS fans and thank you for stopping by.  Christmas is almost here, and not only are children becoming excited about Santa arriving, so are our constant and faithful companions. Today’s card is for all the dog and cat lovers.

I have used the adorable Winter Kitty and Winter Puppy from the High Hopes Stamps release called “Winter Joy“.  Both images were coloured with Copic Markers.  The Joy and Bell (Christmas Wooden Shapes from BoBunny)  were coloured with Zig Wink of Stella markers.

Supplies used:

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


Welcome OCS fans;

Have you ever wondered what is going through a baby’s or even a cat or dog’s mind when they see their reflection for the first time.  I know my children and pets had quite a time playing when they saw their reflections.

For today’s card I have used Snowy Reflection and I’m sure that he doesn’t realize that it is his reflection he is seeing.  I used copics to colour the image.  Nuvo’s Fresh Snowfall Glitter Accents was added to the trees.
