Three Wise Men

Where I come from, we celebrate the Three Wise Men as well as Christmas.  Three Wise Men is celebrated in January 6.  As you know, the Three Wise Men brought gifts to Jesus when we was born in a manger.  So, we celebrated that day as well. Here's one of a few cards I did using the same digital image.

I used Tim Holtz distress ink again to crate the night sky:
Colors:
Tumbled Glass
Broken China
Black Soot
Ground: Vintage Photo
Copics Y15 and Y13 for stat

Around the edges of the card, I sponged some Broken China ink and then stamped Merry Christmas on the bottom.  Simple and to the point.

Baby Time and Special Girl

I made these cards for a relative who will soon have a baby girl and also for her little girl Aurora who is 4 1/2 yrs old!  I had fun making these cards.

This card came out so cute!!  I used a Frebbie png image from Patches of Pink and created the clouds on the background with the clouds dies from Memory Box and then cut out some of the clouds and put them on the card for dimension.  I colored the card with Copics.  Flowers are cutout from heart punch from Recollections and Sizzix.  Cardstock: Georgia pacific, Neenah 65lb and some other brand I can't remember!
