Hannah & Pines

Here is a new drawing of Hannah. She is more in a Winter setting. This is a card that I made for the Toys for Tots Charity Auction that will be starting around November 22nd. . This is my very first card!!! Looks like I need a little more practice. Smiles!!!

This is showing what the inside looks like. That little pine tree is another one of my drawings. Sorry for the quality of photos. My camera does not work, so I had to scan the pictures. By scanning them, it does not show the true colors and it looks like it is showing a LOT of shadows. The white ribbons has a lot of sparkles and the string art is a very shinny silver. I have used Basic Gray Papers, Primas, inks, a little flower soft, Bazzill cardstocks, and of coarse a Hannah drawing, etc.

Hopefully, this drawing of Hannah will soon be made into a stamp and be available at the Pixie Cottage Store.

Thank you for looking!!!

Toys for Tots Ebay Auction

I took this from Michelle blog and this is in her own words:

I wanted to mention I will be hosting an ebay charity auction at the end of the month. (I will provide a link here when the auction is running, target date is Nov 22) It will be an auction with a wide array of holiday cards from numerous artists. I would love to have even more cards to add to the auction, so if any of you are willing to donate, a card that is sized approx. 5.25x4.25 or smaller would be wonderful, I will supply the envelopes. A great gal I know will be making the tin to house all the cards, but I am hoping to have even more than what will fit! All proceeds will benefit Toys for Tots. Contact me at casdanben@aol.com for my address if you would like to donate a card for the auction.

Great cause to help out the kids, especially around the holidays. The more the merrier!!! I will be posting my card later this week that will be in this auction. It is a new drawing with Hannah in it and YEP, I painted/colored it. SMILES!!!! It is my first painted/colored card, so don't laugh!!!

Hope to see LOTS of cards for the kids!!!
