Santa with a Cup of Coffee and a Little Lady play with the Snow Card

Today I want to share another lovely Image that my friend HN made. You can find this image at JCLA on my Etsy Sop. Just klick HERE to see this Santa with a Cup of Coffe image.

Tips for you if you only have 30 minutes time like me :)
I was really want to make this card and I have only 30 minutes time because then I must pick up my son. Also dont choose Copic Markers to coloring it need more time...also I took my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor and took the red and the green color and using my water tank brush, start to colored my Image.

I must confess that I did the other part later after picked up my son. I cut red and green paper with the same size like main Image, then also stamped the star with red and green at the white card base. For his hut and his bart I gave again pop corn pen. The main Image also I distressed with TH distress tool. The sentiment is German means: Merry Christmas.

If you a coffee lovers and need a christmas card, this Image is perfect for that two purpose :) 

******IMPORTANT NOTE: I have asked again my lovely friend Jerrie and Hetty  to colored this lovely Santa image, they said YES and you know ladies I am soo happy to know you both :) PLUS I just have known Faith from Hetty, she also join this time to coloring this Santa Image.(many thanks Faith)

For my second card, I really like the sketch challenge from MFT Challenge Sketch #254 this time:

I used my first MFT Stamp I fell in love and bought (again) this time, I ever used this image on THIS card :)

For my card I started to stamp this cute little girl, then I masked her, after that I choose a distress ink and started with my wet brush to colored the white paper behind her.  I colored her with my copic markers.

For the Snow I choose my Pop Corn pen. And under, her I made a white area using my white pen. Simple and easy to made but I have to think a scene this time :). This card will go to a little lady named Thea ...she will have a birthday soon :)

I love the stamp from MFT and will buy it again if I have saved some of my penny :) oh ya the top area of the card is an old (SNOW) embossing paper sent from a lovely cardmaker friend.
