Lot's of Layers - Christmas Fireplace

Good morning to you!

March is here....where did January/February go?
Not sure where the time has went
but I am making the little moments count.
After being super sick for over a week,
in February. Then a visit out too see
my sister for 8 days (so awesome to spend time together). 
It was nice to enjoy the ocean
even with the wind/rain/snow/sun too.
My markers and ink were calling my name.
It felt nice to be back in my craft room.

With March here maybe spring just might be
around the corner...looking forward to the vibrant
colors we will all be seeing soon.

Onto why you are here:
Creative Knockouts has a brand new challenge
for us.

Our wonderful sponsor for this two week challenge is

Prize: 2 Digi's of your choice and a chance to be a Guest Designer
for the Mirtillamente Challenge


The card above/below shows the fun image of
a Christmas Fireplace.
It was a joy to color up using my Copic markers.

First thing I did  was break out the pattern paper and make lots of layers.
Each piece of paper is layered over the other one (5 layers in total).
Then I decided what size to cute my image at.
Glued it all down and first Christmas card of 2023 :)

Be sure to head on over to check out the challenge
It will be nice to get more inspiration from all of you.

Thank you for joining me today.
Have an amazing week ahead.

Happy Crafting,

Cupid's Cutest Valentine


Good morning everyone!
It is hard to believe that we are already in the month
of February and Valentine's Day is fast approaching.

This year is going to be fun with our
My kids were always so lucky,
their grandma each and every year
made them a home made Valentine's Day card 
and gave them a few chocolates in a home box.
I am working very hard to continue this
tradition with my grand children this year.

Our first challenge of the month over at Creative Knockouts
Challenge: #487 - Love is In The Air/Valentines or Pink/Red/White Color Combo

Our wonderful sponsor is The Paper Shelter
Prize: 3 Images

The image used is called Hilarious Cupid
Be sure to check them out as they have so many awesome
images you can choose from.

The image was colored using copic markers.
I used a Heart Die to highlight the image and the little hearts. 
Sponged around the heart with pink to make the white so bright.
Two punches were used for the sentiment.
The Square was die cut using a cross stitch pattern.
The paper is from my left over paper box.
Wink of Stella was used on Cupid's Wings.

Please come and join us for our challenge,
they run for two weeks.
My fellow Design Team members have
amazing inspiration for you.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Passion For Markers Challenge - Week 675 - Use Die Cuts (all hearts and the cross stitched square)

Shopping Our Stash - Challenge #489 - Love Is In the Air 
(It is filled with hearts, cupid and a Valentine's Day Sentiment)
