Art Impressions Wuff Set

Hello AI Fans!!

I actually took a little break today from the Christmas and Winter cards to show you a little something I made for the up and coming Valentine's Day holiday!  I love making homemade treats, so I am always looking for cute ways to present them to the recipient. And I think the cutie patootie Wuff Set from Art Impressions is perfect for a sweet Valentine, don't you??!!

After I finished coloring her, I used my Copic blender pen to create some texture on her fur.

Copics used:  E35, 37, 39, 51, 53 ;  R81, 83, 85, 89
I also enhanced the Copic coloring with chalk pastel pencils.

You can find this adorable Zoo Baby stamp and many, many more fabulous Valentine stamps at Art Impressions!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you take some time to relax and get crafty!!  Hugs!

Papertake Weekly - Paper Play

Hey everyone!! It's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly, and this week we're having a play with paper! So...make it simple, make it elaborate..but make sure you make it out of paper!! We are sponsored this week by the fabulous folks over at Whiff of Joy.  So for todays project, I made more treat containers for my homemade goodies.  Inside the snowman is a bag of homemade chocolate mints, and inside the candy box are homemade Kahlua filled chocolates. Both pieces are cut from Silhouette files. Everything (except the treats of course) is made from paper.

Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to see all the fabulous creations by the design team, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
