Oops forgot to show this one -



While tidying up last night I found one more image I forgot to show. And I worked really hard on coloring this one, so I don't want to wait until next December to show it. LOL






This one I used my Ranger Distressing Inks, that takes me forever! I so wish I could get a hang of using them....






The card papers are lots of brands. Red pattern is from Basic Grey Wassail pad I think, the mat behind the Hanglar is from the brand new DCWV Green stack. And the "book" pattern paper is from a kit I got years ago... I think it was a Bolin paper... but I am not sure as it wasn't marked. I inked the edges of everything with brown ink. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I smudged ink all over it to "age" it some. Then used a Making Memories frame for it. I stacked to ribbons for the bottom band, and the flowers are just yummy aren't they. The glitter flowers are Heidi Grace, and the red poinsettia is Prima, put together with jewelry spacers and mini brads.






Well now I can move on to my January and February cards! Hope you had a wonderful New Years Day, we watched movies, Hubby's brother and his family came out later, went out to dinner then came home and played Wii... funny stuff!




Today we are going to do some Donkey business, and a few things around the house. Have a great Friday (man that sounds weird my days are all mixed up!) anyway have a great day and get inky!

HUGS and-

I thought it was just me!
I love using copics, but bought distress inks thinking that others used them and I would give it a try. WAY TOO MUCH WORK!!!

Do you think there is a trick to speeding up the process and not blundering the project?
Thanks for all you do on your blog, I read it everyday.

Happy New Year
