I'm sure you all will be glad to see I am back to posting just one card at a time...me, too.
This card was for the CAS310 challenge on Splitcoaststampers.
This valentine will be for my four year old granddaughter. I wanted to send her a ton of love. So, Ellie the elephant was the perfect image for that. Some people on Splitcoaststampers said she has a heart tattoo. Ha
The little dots are just remnants of paper from something I die cut or punched..can't remember which.
I colored with Copics.

I'm going to finish up my posts that got left out while I was away. I have three today and then I'll be back to posting as I make my cards.
This card was for CAS305 on Splitcoaststampers. The challenge was to welcome the new year.
I almost never make new year's card and this is a bit different from the usual new year's card. I did add a star at the bottom for fireworks....hmmmm........
I colored with Copics, added a shadow, and some snow made with my DecoArt snow writer.

My next card is a Christmas card made for the January Christmas Fan Club Challenge/SCSCCJan15.
I colored the image with my markers and then colored the trees in a bit with green, used my DecoArt snow writer for snow and added some glitter.

I'm sure most of you are aware it is Groundhog Day. I sure hope Punxsutawney Phil doesn't see his shadow so warmer temps and Spring will be coming sooner. :-)
I'm still trying to catch up on my posts from when I got behind. I so enjoyed making this card and made three. I rarely make multiples but I was having fun with the snowbanks. Besides this one, I needed a couple of birthday cards. With each one the snow looked different. You just need some curved paper and sponge just above it. It took some practice for me but I am pleased. Hope to get
better each time I try. The trees were hand cut and I used a snow marker for the falling snow. My card was cased from this card: http://craftinginthecountry.blogspot.com/2012/10/a-simple-christmas-at-st-lukes.html
Isn't her card beautiful?
