Quick Miss You

Standard

Today’s card was a quick one. I need to send a box off to Operation Write Home as I have some Fall and Christmas in my current collection and those deadlines are coming up. My box count is 99 so I wanted to get another one finished to make an even 100. I’ll add more with some Any Hero cards later today.

Distressed Christmas Lights

Standard

When I did a midweek Christmas throwdown for Operation Write Home, way back in July, I stamped several cards at once. For some reason, I had one left so decided to color it using my Distress Markers and new Water Pen. I love the mottled finish – the bulbs look dimensional.

Moxie Fab World is celebrating the release of Handmade Cards with a week of challenges. Today’s is all about Color Media.
