Hi All! I’m back with the other graduation card I was asked to make. This one for a man getting his Masters in Architecture. As I was searching for digital images I found most were geared to kids, tween and teens. Not so much for “Adults”. I found this awesome image with stacked books. The only problem was that it has this cute little mouse hanging from the tassel, not very manly…… But I printed and colored the image anyway. Still thinking the mouse had to go. If this was a physical stamp I could have just blocked that part of the stamp. I had to find a way to cover it up and keep with the theme. After a day, it hit me! A little house would be perfect. Now, on with the Show & Tell…
Here is the card with the house! .

Hi all! It’s time for my friend Nancy of Row House Greetings and my monthly challenge. We hope you guys are enjoying our venture! This month Nancy chose the image. We used another great digital, this one from LOTV or Lili Of The Valley and it is called Sledging. It is a cute image of FIVE kids on a sled. Whew, this one took a lot of thought and a lot of markers. In fact it took me over 50 different markers. Now, on with the Show and Tell…
Here is Nancy’s I love the way she used blue as a focal color. To find out all about her card click HERE to go to her blog!
I used blues also, but darker ones except for the gifts.
While Nancy used bright primary colors, I went with warm fuzzy colors.
I chose to not add any sentiment, allowing the image to be the message.
