One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Freshly Made Sketches # 14

Another card for Freshly Made Sketches and even though I have sent out all my Christmas cards, I just can't seem to stop making those cards...so maybe I am ahead of the game for next year!!  Check out the site, there are some great cards for this sketch...and the designers have wonderful inspiration cards.
 First I colored my "bricks" with copics, using about 4 different colors, then using the blender pen I drew in the mortar lines for the bricks.  I cut a piece of coaster board and embossed it with a wood grain, then I dabbed on some pearl Dabber acrylic paint to give a nice shine for the mantle...the paper is from Basic Grey/Nordic Holiday.

  1. What a great card Colleen! I love that stocking. Great background. I cannot believe you already sent all your cards! Wow. I haven't even finished HALF of the cards I wanted to make, so I will be sending non-home made ones as well :-(
    Hugs, Jose
    PS I ordered some goodies from MFT and they are on their way to you!
