I'm baaaaack ... with a new holiday card!

Wow, long time no blog!  

Our suite!
I've enjoyed a brief siesta, cruising with hubby aboard the Princess Lines' "Caribbean Princess" to the ports of Aruba and Curacao. It was lovely and relaxing, and I even found time to take a crafting class aboard, to make a travel journal. I'll post it as soon as I dig it out of my luggage!
Lovely Curacao

In the meantime, I'm catching up on some of my crafting "duties" -- card and cut swaps, blog hops, etc. ... and I'm digging out from the mess I left in the Paper Jungle.  

Here is a card I made en masse yesterday for a Christmas card swap I am in.  (Thank you for having me, Jennifer Restivo!)  

The image is a digi-stamp by Mo Manning at
Mo's Digital Pencil.  The designer papers are from the
Christmas Cheer collection of Lily Bee Designs.
I colored the image with Copic Markers, paper pieced the shirt,
and used Liquid Pearls on the hat fur and pom-poms.
I applied CTMH Liquid Glass to the candy cane, and
used twine from Jessi's online store at
My Life In Arts and Crafts.

Speaking of Jennifer, have you seen that she has published the second edition of Creations by Crafty Card Gallery?  In it, I wrote a featured article on Copic Marker storage. Be sure to check it out ... you can buy a digital copy for only $2.99, or a print edition for $12.20 (which includes a digital copy as well) by going to HP MagCloud.

See you again soon, with more holiday cards!

DeFiaNtLy DiFfeReNt & CreAtiVeLy Yours,
