Tini, Egli and Trees!


Papercraft Business Challenge #33


This months theme is OF COURSE! Christmas


Surprise! I am back. There has been a lot going on in my life besides the whole Covid thing. Way back in June I decamped from Annapolis and moved to our beach cottage for what was supposed to be just the summer. But in the mean time we were prepping our Annapolis house for sale. So today, that house goes on the market and it’s my Hubby’s last day of work. We have picked out a great lot on the 16th hole in Plantation Lakes, which is in Millsboro Delaware. However, they won’t be able to break ground til maybe January. That being said, we have moved into the cottage at the beach for the winter. It is small and that is our biggest challenge. Wish us luck!





Since I used digital stamps, I printed out the tree first and colored it in.



Trees look way better with some texture, so before I did anything else I grabbed my Colorless Blending fluid and a piece of towel, dabbing to create this cool look.


Next I printed out my gnomes, and got down to giving them some color. True to form I grabbed those Nuvo Drops and made their noses POP!


I know a lot of you shy away from hair, this girl is perfect for easy hair. I literally grabbed 3 C’s and scribbled it in!


I confess, I really spent no time coloring this summer. Luckily I have figured out a dedicated spot for all my supplies and a place to work where I won’t be interrupted. SO……..after mid November when I have to serve on Jury Duty (right?? uggh) I plan to be more consistent in bringing you my creative ideas in hopes to inspire you!
