warm winter wishes

My new addiction is easel cards.  They are such fun to make and a practical way to show off your art work.  They stand up freely and neatly.  Everyone I sent them to is using it as a table or desk decoration.
This cute image was one of the first digi "freebies" I ever saved and unfortunately, at the time, I didn't realize the importance of saving them and cataloging where I found it.  I want to say ""  She generously shares so many images daily that she finds all over and has introduced me to so many great sites.
 I did color her using copics and pro markers. I love copics for skin tones and blendability, but I also love the pro markers for their colors and ease of layering the shading.. I am just learning how to color and am so inspired by so many truly great artists out there.  I think I favor the lovely ladies in the UK.. I just like their style and have learned so much from them.  Christina at is one of my favorites.  She does wonderful videos and tutorials with amazing folds and creative ways to use spellbinders and other dry embossing/cutting folders.  Deb Jennett at is another favorite.  Her designs are so fresh and cheerful.    There are so many and I thank you all.

I am entering the following challenges:
