Nov. 24th Tis the Season Blog Hop with LeighSBDesigns!

It's Thanksgiving Eve for my family because my son has to work on Thanksgiving.  So the ham is baked, the banana pudding is made and the cornbread is cooked ready to make the dressing!  I am posting a quick make using a cute little snowman and friends by Hetty Clare Art!

I colored them up with Prismacolor pencils and layered them on some cardstock with clear stamped snowflakes covered with green Perfect Pearls and the blue cardstock stamped with silver snowflakes.

Nov. 19th Tis the Season Blog Hop

Hi, all!  I have been overseeing the painting of my kitchen and I forget how much of a job painting can be!  But hopefully we will be all set for Thanksgiving!  

This is Leigh's Holly Chorus Frog colored with Prismacolor pencils.  This guy can be purchased like this or wearing a Santa hat!  I think I will have to get that one, too!  Definitely check these guys out and so much more at LeighSBDesigns!   I had a blast playing with this and thanks to Alyce at Kit and Clowder for her wonderful monthly coloring classes!

November at Ike's World Challenges!

 It's time for the midway posting of Ike's World Challenges!  The theme is White on White or Anything Goes!  couldn't be any easier now could it? 😉

I used the Xmas Fairy by Ike's Art!  She is a FREEBIE and one I always start printing out at this time of year!  I find myself going down one path with no detours for long patches of time in my crafting.   Realizing I was always worried about the amount of time something needed for coloring was occupying a lot of my brain cells, I decided to take a charming image and do very little or in this case very light coloring on it.  This fit into this month's optional theme for the challenge which was a double bonus!   I used the Cricut to cut the card pieces all in white and layered the letters three times for some pop up value.  I used Prismacolor colored pencils in light blue, light gray, and silver for the image and cut out.  I attached the fairy with foam squares and glued the letters on.  My daughter's name is Noel and right now she is in about the 7th day of the covid 19 virus.  This will go on her breakfast tray in the morning to hopefully cheer her up.  The virus is real so please keep yourselves safe as possible.  We hope to see you playing with us this month at Ike's World Challenges for November!  Remember, Anything Goes or play with some White on White!  I will be looking forward to visiting your blogs when you enter the challenge!

Nov. 13th Tis the Season Blog Hop with LeighSBDesigns!

 Today I worked on one of my Kit and Clowder Coloring Bonus Classes from August - September 2019 (I think that is the right year).  I have wanted to color these autumn leaves since the class arrived and just never did.  So tonight I present some autumn leaves to wish you all a happy fall!

You receive a bonus coloring lesson each month when you are subscribed to the Kit and Clowder Coloring Classes!  I learn so much from Alyce and she is such a kind and helpful teacher!  I am still very much a beginner with colored pencils but I love learning and having a lovely image to make a card with when I am through!  Some cardstock, glue and Prismacolor pencils and I was all done!

Nov. 10th 'Tis the Season Blog Hop with LeighSBDesigns

 And we are off on another two month long blog hop with LeighSBDesigns as our fabulous hostess!  So a brief recap of the last few days of October for me!  A hurricane hit us smack on and while power was being restored the next day my daughter got the results of her Covid-19 tests which was positive!  The Monday prior to this I had a biopsy at the dermatologists and she was not happy with the looks of the thing.  Happily I got the results of the biopsy today and it was benign!  To say I didn't get to have a very jolly Halloween would be safe to say!  Also, I am happy to say Noel has done well compared to so very many people who have had this nasty thing!  Her symptoms were on the milder side although she has been a very miserable and lonely dear.  She has been quarantined in her apartment outside my back door.  No, I didn't toss her out....she lives in the apartment my parents lived in at my house.  Thought I might need to make that clear!  I am going to craft all my nervous energy into this blog hop!

I drew this very simple sketch after watching a video by Nianiani's of watercolor Christmas cards.  I just used art journal paper for this cos I lost my watercolor paper and Arteza watercolors.  The quote from Charlie Brown's Christmas seemed to fit.  I have a little fake tree like the poor little one in the movie and it has a big red ornament on it.  I sketched the ornament and lights and had it all painted when I thought about the quote.

Day 25 of the 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop

My kids are teaching me how to use Procreate on an iPad.  They have not had an easy time of it but I have managed a few things!  Here is my very first accomplishments :)


 This image is by Oddball Art and is CCC124 Ghosts in the Mists.  These ghouls are already worried about the fact that more boos! are on the horizon it seems!  So to calm them down I gave them a good dose of glitter :)  It usually works for me!
