Reindeer Bird

My last card of 2014.  Will be back in January.  Here's my card that kills two birds (no pun intended) with one stone.  I used Sketch #89 with a twist from I {heart} card sketches at From the Heart Stamps. The twist is to use a tag.  I tried to work with the color scheme as well. My card is also using the Digital Stamp of the Month Challenge at From the Heart Stamps. Here's my card....

Here's the sketch with twist and color scheme...
See you next year!

Thanks a Latte

I realized that this sketch is over on Monday, so this is a really quick card.  The sketch is from From the Heart i {heart} card sketches #85.
My coloring on this is atrocious! I just don't have a light enough pink Copic.  Paper from Basic Grey.
The Sketch...
Oops, did not use the "twist", too much of a hurry to read the directions!  I did try to stick to the color theme.

Vase of Flowers

This is the card I made using From the Heart Stamps sketch #73, with a twist, NO pattern paper or DP.  I don't know what happened tho', the card size just got away from me.  And my picture taking skills just aren't cutting it.  Not sure if it's me or the camera!

Wine Bird

It's been a while...been in Phoenix at my daughter's house getting the nursery ready for my first grand child, a girl!
I finally made it in to my craft room and I love this darling image so much as my family is very into wine. My hubby worked as a general manager for Bernardo Winery in San Diego and he took classes whenever he could.  My third son is a somm, advanced and will be sitting for Master Sommelier next year, his second attempt.
The image is from From the Heart Stamps and the sketch is from the challenge blog, the challenge is Sketch 70, I heart card sketches with a twist.
Here's the pic of my card...
My picture taking skills need some work!!!

And here's a pic of the sketch....

My take on From the Heart I{heart} Sketches 61. The sketch with a twist, the twist, coloring on kraft paper. That is difficult!  I just don't like the way it looks. I used DP from Authentique, Hope collection. The image is from From the Heart Digital Stamps.

The sketch....
