Hello Friends, Thanks for stopping by again and welcome if you are new to my blog & welcome to the blog hop.  
I am so glad you are here because Vera & Jennifer have joined together to collect cards for the elderly in nursing homes for the holidays. Vera has done this for many years and it's called "Cards that Care" and today is a blog hop with lots of prizes.(more on that later)


You should be arriving from  Rachel Isakowicz"s  blog  hereIf you need to start at the beginning please go to Vera's Yate's blog here or Jennifer McGuire's blog here.

Now for my card...I had so much fun creating this for the elderly and I know they always love pets. These adorable images are from Penny Black & colored with Copic markers. After stamping a texture on the truck I sprayed a copper mist on top. I LOVE the the soft glimmer sheen this spray adds to the truck. I added lots of Glossy Accents on the front window.

I love taking an embossing folder after dry embossing my paper swipe it with white ink directly on the paper. Last October I designed two cards for with this same technique so if you would like to see the cards click here.

You can see the copper up close and its a beautiful shimmer especially on the red marker. See the berries?? I added three coats of Glossy Accents on each one. Let it dry between each application but, I can promise you will love the dimension. Let me know if you have any questions.

Now....let's talk prizes

Lily Pad Palette Color Challenge

Hello Friends, It's me again  as promised :) with a new color palette challenge from Lily Pad.
Hang in there
I just think this little critter is the cutest...he's a digi image from "Clear Dollar Stamps" and when you click over to Lily Pad they will have the link for you and inspiration from the other DT members. 

I just had to break out my favorite Penny Black background stamps for this card and my Martha Stewart glitter. For the sun I used the inverted circle die from Spellbinders and the circles too. (I am always reaching for the circles)

I printed the sentiment on some card stock and used this die to create a decorative tag.

Lots of distressing and I used the glitter for some highlights and some pizazz.

I used Copic markers to color him and a white colored pencil to add highlights.  I had to show you his teeth...this is what happens when you don't brush and floss...lol.... I colored them yellow!! Lots of Glossy Accents on his nose and teeth too. I will be back in a few hours for a blog hop for a wonderful cause....this one so please stop back and see you soon. Hugs, Kathy
