Christmas Card Using Conie Fong Molly's Pawfect Christmas with CTMH products

Hello Friends!  I hope everyone is doing well and finding time to craft during this busy holiday season.  I can't seem to find enough time to create all the Christmas cards I need and should have started earlier.  LOL!  

I have had so much fun coloring Conie Fong "Molly's Pawfect Christmas".  It is the most adorable digi.  I used the dog with short ears.  This set comes with 4 images, 2 with long ears and 2 with short ears.  

I wanted to color with non-traditional Christmas colors.  I love bright colors all year long and I haven't created anything in quite a while with my favorite colors of purple and yellow together.  

This card is for my daughter, Jenny and her family.  They love receiving my cards; so that makes it more enjoyable to send them.  I would hate for someone to throw my creations away.  Some of them take several days or a full week to create; so they are all special to me.  It is hard sometimes for me to give them away.  Does anyone else have that problem?  LOL!  

This set of 4 images comes with 2 with long eared dog 
and 2 with short eared dog, with wagon and without wagon.  
This is the short eared dog.

Kit and Clowder Coloring Class Using The Paper Shelter "Hope" class image with trees

Hello Friends!  I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving; for those who celebrate it.  My husband and I found a restaurant we have never eaten and had lunch there for Thanksgiving.  They were having a Thanksgiving day special.  I was lucky enough to have a complete turkey meal made exactly like my mother used to make for us; including pumpkin pie.  It was wonderful; but I sure wish my mother were alive to enjoy it with me.  I even bought more turkey, dressing and mashed potatoes to bring home.  I have had it 3 times so far.  LOL!  I always loved the left over after Thanksgiving.  

I have been taking classes again at Kit and Clowder and just finished this fabulous image, The Paper Shelter "Hope" with the image that Alyce added the trees for our class.  I had some challenges; but it is always great to have someone to reach out to when you are stuck and can't get something figured out.  That happened to me a few times with this class.  

I loved the class once I was able to see the Coloring video's on a bigger screen than my I pad.  It was just too small for me.  I have to use a magnifying lamp to color.

Using The Paper Shelter "Hope" with trees added by Alyce with Kit and Clowder Coloring Class
Added CTMH reverse side of Lemonade and reverse side of Bluebird cardstock

My coloring by itself without cardstock behind it.
I made the skin a little darker than I wanted and then tried to fix it.  LOL! 



Supplies used to create this card:

Image - Special purchase for Kit and Clowder "Silent Night" Coloring Class (Nov. 2019) from The Paper Shelter "Hope".  The image purchased without the class can be found at The Paper Shelter; but it does not include the trees without the class.

Click the Kit and Clowder link above for the monthly classes that are offered.  Each month is a different class with new and different techniques.  You can still get this class if you join right away.

Used Copic markers indicated in class.  Too many to list here and class information is not to be shared.

Card on top - Used 5 x 7 base card; with CTMH Reverse side of Bluebird cardstock and Reverse side of Lemonade for the cardstock behind image.
