Making Spirits Bright

Happy Christmas Eve! Above you see the other card design that I made more than once. I just love the images of the snowy rooftops and Santa (both by Art Impressions). They are colored in using Prismacolor pencils. I used the Operation Write Home sketch #148 for this card. I wonder if I will ever get through all of their great sketches? Especially since they add a new one every week! The snowflake paper was purchased in the summer of 2011. I wish I had bought more than two sheets. Oh well, I understand that the paper companies put out new designs every year, so I am looking forward to treating myself to new paper again this summer. Turns out I had a couple of these left over, so I have filed them under Winter in my OWH box.

Remember, you can click on the photos to make them larger.
Here are three of the four Wrap Me Up Puppies I made for some adorable children I know. The fourth puppy also had a pink blanket. I gave away one puppy before the elves managed to finish the fourth one, so there is no photo of the entire group. The pattern is in the book Itty Bitty Knits by Susan B. Anderson. She has many wonderful patterns available, some for free, others in books and leaflets.

From all indications the children love their puppies, and that definitely makes my spirits bright.

OMGosh, the puppies are so adorable! My 5 year old pointed at them and responded, "Awww!"
You keep whippin' out all these fun, patterned papers. My eyes grew at the thought of how huge your stash is.
