Well for Christmas (actually after) I treated myself to a few Copic Markers. They are so much fun. The circle picture of the house I colored without a clue as to what I was doing. I had some trouble with bleeding (especially with the blender pen). Then I turned to the trusty internet and watched a few tutorials - and I was off and coloring.

Thank you for coming back for week two of our Festive Friday Blog Hop. I loved viewing all the creativity last time. Got some great ideas and encouragement to make more Christmas cards. You probably got to this sight from Katie's blog. Her cards are over the top beautiful. Thank you for continuing on and visiting again.
This is the last stop on the Festive Friday Blog Hop. If you did not start at the beginning you can go to Terri's blog and see all the great cards you missed. Thank you again for stopping by.

On Sunday I took the most fun class with Terri Brush at the Urban Barn in Escondido, CA. I had taken two other soldering classes but none were as educational or encouraging as Terri's classs. The crown is a good beginners project because you get a lot of practice taping and soldering. Plus - when you are finished you have a fun piece to take home. Everyone took home a beautiful crown.
The soldered piece on the bottle I had done long ago.
Anxious to do more....

Thank you for visiting after viewing Katie's bog.
I'm excited about participating in a blog hop and creating Christmas cards. Usually I'm glad the stress of Christmas is over and ready to go on to other thing. This year was different. Things got crazy and the usual stuff just didn't happen.
I'm relatively new to stamping (about 2 years) and my stamp collection is limited. The flower below is a modified poinsettia using what I had.
Can't wait to see what everyone else had created. I have visited all the blogs and was very impressed at the creativity and talent. A special thanks to Terri Sproul for ALL her computer help. This is the last stop on our little hop, we hope you enjoyed yourself and come back in two weeks for our next one...

The biggest challenge was creating a closure that would keep whatever is in the pockets from falling out. What I came up with looks OK but surely won't last.
