Santa and his cookies

Welcome to the

Eureka  &  QKR
joint design team blog hop,  Thank you for joining us, if you've just found out about the hop, then please start here, with Julie. 
I chose to use these fun images you see below, I'm so over the heat and ready for the cooler weather.

I used my SIL program to create this card and colored him with my copic markers.  I added the glitter using crystal effects and a gold marker for his buckle.  The twine is by Trendy Twine.

I'd love for you to keep scrolling to see what else I have for you today.




This month we are using a fun and simple image, these leaves have a ton of possibilities.
I used my SIL program to duplicate and color the leaves to create my background then used just the maple leaf for my main image.

 I let my machine cut it out, I sprayed it with water, wadded it up then carefully opened it up leaving a lot of the wrinkles and let it dry.  I then sprayed it very lightly with shimmer mist, after that dried I used brown ink and some green ink to sponge extra color on.
 Inside, I added some fun paper and a matching owl sticker.

Now it's your turn, head over to the team blog, see what the others have done then get crafty yourself!

Thanks for stopping by, be sure to continue on with the hop by going to see what Zoe has made.
