Polar Bears Nose BOOP Card

I am in the middle of designing Christmas cards for my parents to mail. They chose this polar bear image, I came up with the rest.

While I am giving them this card to mail, I am not willing to make 24 more of these! It did turn out exactly as I hoped, but the steps to get me there were just too many.

Dia de los Muertos 2018

For Offspring3.

I thought the watercolor galaxy paper from Brutus Monroe was a perfect backdrop.

The sentiment was printed from my computer. The translation is: Whoever lives with hope, dies in peace.

Time to Chase The Snowflakes Card

Let’s take a break from August for some SNOW.

Offspring3 gifted me this stamp set late last year, it is adorable. This is the first time I got it inky.
