    I am so blessed to have found the Friend Friday! I adore all of the cards you have shown! The elves are simply adorable and colored so well! I wish I could color that well! I just need more practice! Then…I saw the cardinal card made by Tanya! My mouth dropped open! Stunning! Simply stunning! Great coloring, beautiful card! My mother-in-law would flip for a card like this! I must print out the informative how-to and give it a whirl! I am so excited! Merry Christmas!

    The first card is delightful and fun. The second card is one of the prettiest shaker cards I have ever seen. I love how the image around the opening is so subtly colored. Gorgeous work.

    Love the elves but the cardinal/wreath card is magical and stunning!! Total perfection! You have let the stamps and coloring shine beautifully!! TFS!

    Those elves are truly adorable! Classic card is beautiful, too. I went to a well stocked art supply store near where I live to look for Chameleon pens and was shocked to hear they no longer carried them! First saw them mentioned in the Rubberstampmadness magazine!

    I just got my pens in the mail. Now I’m following Chameleon on Facebook and reading their blog.need to let the pens warm up a bit, it was below 0C here last night so they were a little cool. Playtime tomorrow!

    I’ve loved Hero Arts stamps for a long time. Used them with polymer clay and paper crafts.

  7. Barbara Baxter

    I absolutely LOVE the cardinal card, especially since it is a shaker card. You can’t go wrong with a cardinal on a card and a card that is a shaker card!

    Both the elves cards are really cute, but I love the cardinal shaker card. It’s very elegant and I just love cardinals! 🙂

  9. Jackie P.

    That shaker card is Gorgeous and those little elves are so cute. Both you ladies did a beautiful job. I haven’t heard of chameleon until today. Looks like I’ve got something new to try 🙂

    We have lots of cardinals in the area (birds and a baseball team).
    Tanya’s card is colored so realistically. Beautiful card.
    Monica’s little elves are so sweet.
    thanks for sharing.
