Christmas is coming!!!
Probably faster than you think as things tend to do these days.
Stampin up had these cute sets this year.
I like stamping of old that lent itself to coloring the images
instead of cutting them out and putting them together.
I think it tests my creativity a bit more somewhat.
I guess it's all in what one gets used to or enjoys.

I dug out the markers and went to work.

I may have to do a few more..
I have some ideas...I like the pine trees in this one..

Or is the snowman too big for those trees??
We'll see...maybe next year?

Just to keep those creative juices flowing,
I tried some torn paper and glue.
It's a mixed media technique.

Not hard at all..almost fool proof.
Your fingers get a bit sore from tearing paper
 and you may get glue under your fingernails.
I like the results.

You are quite the creative lassy! Nice cards! I love what you did to the snowman, and I think he could work with that tree stamp. I also like the train with the trees. It reminds me of The Polar Express. And those mixed media art pieces you created are awesome! You should make and sell those on Etsy! Truly!
