Sending you Christmas joy! 20

Hi there! I'm back with more Christmas cards to share. Today I have a trio featuring a cute reindeer image from an older Stampin' Up set that I hung on to from years ago.
I combined the cute reindeer with patterned paper and a stamped sentiment from PTI:

For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the current Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge:

as well as the card concept challenge. I made clean and simply style cards, was inspired by the red and green color combination, the reindeer sitting on the mantle and incorporated the word joy in the sentiment. 
Up next is a 12" x 12" oil painted canvas featuring a terra cotta pot of geraniums inspired by Nancy Medina:
I'm linking my painting up to the Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)

Happy December! I've been busy creating Christmas cards ~ 'Tis the Season :) Today I have a collection of 5 to share featuring one of my favorite Christmas tree Inkadinkadoo images along with a sentiment from the PTI Holiday Wishes stamp set.
I love the coordinating PTI Ocean Tides ink used to stamp the tree image and the PTI patterned paper. A grey ink was used to stamp the sentiment:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current MOJO Monday challenge:
I've also been working on a few paintings. Today I have a pitcher of Gerbera Daisies inspired by Nancy Medina that was painted on a 12" x 12" canvas using oils for my dear sister Tina:
Here's a close up showing more detailed brush work:

Many thanks for visiting! I hope you have a great weekend!

Hi! It's been awhile since I've blogged. Just busy living the American dream :) ... Enjoying my family, the holiday season, working, traveling, exercising and working on my brush strokes. I am trying to get a jump start on making Christmas tags and cards so I joined along with this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge where Dawn has challenged us to create Double Layered Gift Tags:
I made a collection of tags and coordinating cards featuring a variety of PTI dies and stamps:
All the Christmas cards feature one of the fun stamps from the PTI Winter Swirls  stamp set:

I also need a masculine birthday card for a dear friend:
I've been painting a few birds here and there. Here is a sweet male cardinal on an 8" x 8" canvas painted using oils:

and I've also been painting various flowers. Here is a poppy garden inspired by Nancy Medina's e-course on a 12" x 12" canvas also painted in oils: 

I'm linking my paintings up to the current Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be hopping around later this evening to see what my creative friends have been up to :)
Be Sweet ;)
