Christmas Cards and Blog Break

Hi Everyone! Happy Sunday to all of you!! I just wanted to let you all know that I'm going to take a blog break. I have to take care of a few things that I've been putting off for some time now and it'll take a bit of my time to take care of it. Hope y'all will stick around and be here when I return!!

Anyway, I am really behind on my Christmas cards. I created this card using one of my Stampin Up stamp set. I actually colored the images a while ago so I can't remember the stamp set name.

I had colored the image using markers and an aquapainter brush on watercolor. I think this is the fastest way to color an image.

This is the second card I made using the same images. You can't really see it but the background panel is embossed with the cuttlebug.

Anyway, see y'all when I bet back!

Until later, folks!!
