130 Christmas Cards for Seniors!

christmas-images-1

Every year I make 130 Christmas cards for the Belmont Long Term Care Home. It is my way of paying it forward for the fabulous care they provided my mother. I love to colour while watch TV so I will stamp numerous images and hand colour them with Copic Markers, Zig Water Colour Brushes, Derwent Inktenses Pencils, or Distress inks. Once I get a number completed, I then sit down and start to assemble my cards. No two cards are the same, While I may use the same image, I colour them differently, use a different card format, different card stock, etc. I also make Fall/Thanksgiving/Halloween, Easter/Spring, Valentine’s Day, Remembrance Day (for the veterans), plus birthday cards. It keeps me busy, and I really enjoy it. I also make cards for myself and friends. I dropped the cards off for distribution on December 1, 2016.

 

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 383 – 29th of September – Fantasy

DTbadge

For this challenge, our fabulous leader, Jo, thought Fantasy who be a fun challenge to tackle. I can’t wait to see all the creative cards this week! I selected a fun digi called 3 Wishes by Melonheadz. I coloured my card using my brand new Zig Real Brush watercolour markers. Wow, they are very bold and bright. Love them! I made three versions of this card using the theme of birthday “wishes”. The sentiments are from Hero Arts.
