I hand-colored this Pit Bull pup image by Jamie Delacruz with my Zig Clean Color waterbrush markers. I know it's hard to tell scale from just a photo so the overall size of the frame (from Michaels) is 11 x 13" and the opening is 8 x 10". I added some detail to the flowers with white Nuvo Crystal Drops. I just love this pretty little princess (or handsome prince)!

I was in the mood to make a black and white card but I ended up adding some light yellow and gold, which I think I'm okay with. I got all the paper and embellishments from a very old Anna Griffin bundle. The stamp is from the CTMH "For Every Occasion" stamp set and the ink is Memento in "Tuxedo Black". The loopy punch is Martha Stewart and the corner rounder punch is Fiskars.

This tag is another one I made using the Hunkydory "Kaleidoscope" collection. Sorry about the glare in the pic. I used some CTMH Liquid Glass on the center circle and it's almost impossible to photograph without glare. All the coloring was done with my Zig Clean Color waterbrush markers and Wink of Stella glitter pens. The ribbon is from Martha Stewart and the layers are separated with 3M foam tape.

I know it sounds weird but in my life in general I love darkness, cold, rain, wind, snow, fog, etc. but in my crafting I like girly, flowery, bright, sunshiney (is that a word?) cards. That explains why I love all things Hunkydory. This card is made entirely from their latest collection, "Fabulous Florals". The main image has 6 layers, separated by low profile foam tape. It's hard to capture the beauty of this card with a photograph but I did the best I could considering my limitations. I usually shoot my card pics outside on my deck but in the winter I often have to move my operation indoors, which is not ideal. But I'm not complaining since the rainy weather makes me happy!

I know we're all over and done with Christmas cards so I thought this would make a good all purpose card. After all, candy is good all year round! I love this color combo of the light blue and red. It could be a Christmas card but it could also be used for a myriad of other occasions.

I made this card for my stepson's 32nd birthday a couple weeks ago. He's very into wolves and I love this image, even though it's very simple. I also like the effect of the trees in the background so I combined two Cricut cartridges to make this card. He seemed to really like it.

This A2 size card was made using all CTMH products. Everything came from one of their Christmas collections from a couple years ago. The only exception is the embossing on the red panel which was done with a Cuttlebug machine using a Darice embossing folder. Hope you like it!....

I'd like to apologize for the photo quality of this card. The reflective metallic outlines make it nearly impossible to get a picture without glare. I tried outside, inside, and everything in between but this was the best I could get without the whole card coming out too dark. Anyway, I made this hand-colored card for my 91-year-old Grandma to thank her for hosting Thanksgiving and our all-family-free-for-all-slumber-party over the weekend. She's the absolute best!

For this week's "No Cards" project I decided to share something I made quite some time ago but never paid much attention to nor posted here on my blog. I love this image and thought it would be funny to have it adorn our guest bathroom door, where it has gotten quite a few giggles over the years....

For my tag I used the new "Kaleidoscopes" collection from Hunkydory. I love coloring so this collection is so much fun! The images come pre die cut with all the layers so you just color them in and pop the layers up with some foam tape and voila! There are silver, gold and black outline options for each image. I used my Tonic Nuvo markers for all the coloring. This kit also comes with several pages of coordinating sentiments like the one I used here.

If you've never experienced Hunkydory, I highly highly recommend that you do. I don't get any compensation or recognition or anything for promoting them.... I just truly believe they are the best out there as far as quality and their prices are insanely reasonable for the amount of product you get. I have several of their collections/kits and I love them all! To my knowledge, the only site that sells this particular kit is Create and Craft. They also have a huge selection of other Hunkydory products. It is my favorite site at the moment. Anyway, hope you enjoy my tag!....

I made this card for a friend who recently had a death in her family. I wanted to keep with the Fall color palette but not have it be too dark and depressing. Basically, I wanted it to be respectful but yet still have a brightness about it. I photographed it outside on a lovely Fall day, which I think brings a nice levity to it....

I love candy skulls so I made a card using this funky guy. It didn't really photograph well since I used quite a bit of glitter pen on and around the web and the lighting just makes it look clumpy, but it looks better in person, of course! lol ;)
