Building Snowman by Lemon Shortbread Digital Stamps

 Hi friends!  Here I am again with my final Christmas card for 2020.  I made this card for the Lemon Shortbread Challenge Blog's last challenge for this year. 


This adorable image is "Building Snowman" by Lemon Shortbread, found here:


This sweet image brings back such fond memories of when my sons and I used to build snowmen when they were little.  We used to live in upstate New York right off Lake Ontario, and we had so much lake effect snow. Such fun!

I drew the background and added white flocking powder to her ear muffs.  I coloured the image with my Copics and Polychromos.

I wish you a wonderful and happy New Year.  Hopefully, it will be better than 2020.  Hugs to you, Lori xx

Poinsettia Gnome by Conie Fong

 Hi friends!  I live in the northeastern part of New York and  you are probably aware that the northeastern areas of the U.S. had a severe winter storm yesterday.  We got 35 inches of snow!  My car is completely buried and it's 3 degrees (-16 degrees Celsius).  So cold!  

This is my DT card which I designed for Conie Fong's current Facebook challenge.  I used the delightful "Poinsettia Gnome" image, found here:


This is the second card that I made with this darling image.  I coloured him with Copics and Polychromos.  The mistletoe is a free clipart image which I fussy cut and added 3-D foam to all the leaves.  I then added Stickles (Christmas Red) to the berries. 

That's all from me today.  Thanks so much for visiting. I wish you a happy day.  Hugs, Lori xx

Materials and Tools Used 

Border:      Marianne Creatables "Snowy Icicles" die LR0392
Mistletoe:  free clip art image from the Clip Art Library  http://clipart-library.com/clipart/55259.htm

Glittered paper (icicles), ribbon, and Stickles are from my stash.

Winter Fairy by Lemon Shortbread Digital Stamps

Hi friends!  Christmas is fast approaching, and this year the celebrations will be so different for many of us.  

My DT card today features the gorgeous "Winter Fairy" image by Lemon Shortbread, found in Vera's etsy shop here:


I created this card for the new challenge which commences today on the Lemon Shortbread Challenge Blog:


I drew a snowy background for her. I decided to apply white flocking powder to her hat and to the trim on her jacket.  I also added clear Wink of Stella to her wings. She's coloured with my usual mediums (Copics and Polychromos).  The poinsettia is hand made.

I hope you are either finished with your Christmas shopping or nearly done.  Thank you for stopping by, and I hope to see you again.  Have a happy day.  Hugs, Lori xx
