With Sympathy

 Unfortunately I seem to need more sympathy cards the older I get. I really like this one since I find its harder to do masculine ones. I used birds from firecracker Designs, grass from Gina K, water from scenescapes and the tree from Tim Holtz. The background I embossed with a crackle embossing folder.

Gnome with Sign by Lee Holland Art

 Another Christmas card done, Gnome with Sign by Lee Holland Art. I wasn't thinking ahead for the sign or I would have inserted a digital sentiment. Nope, so after I coloured it I had to hunt for a small stamp to fit the sign. Thank goodness I found one!

I used copic markers and was shading snow while looking outside as my inspiration since we've still got snow, lol!
