See you Later, Alligator!

Hope you had a great weekend! Ours was great here, but of course, too fast as always. 😉

I thought I’d pop in and share these cute little Neat & Tangled critters I colored with Copic Markers. The best part is, they made it onto CARDS already!! 🙂

This card is made with Neat & Tangled’s new Later Alligator and coordinating Dies. I also used N&T’s previously released Polygon Stencil with some Distress Oxide inks. 🙂 I cannot handle the cuteness of that tiny little frog! My son is going to love getting this one! 🙂

Next up, I used the cute little fox, So Foxy! Coordinating dies HERE.

I colored him gray with Copics and added him on top of some Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Paper Pad paper. Gah, cutest little fox! ❤

I also used Neenah white cardstock, as always, for both! 🙂

If you haven’t seen it, Neat & Tangled is hosting another Throwdown: Crafting with Compassion.

There could not be a better idea in my mind, so I wanted to join in on it. I also thought it completely worthy to purchase this Celebrate You stamp set, as all the proceeds are “being donated to the Burning Limb Foundation to help patients at the Neurologic Relief Center receive care for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).” You can find all the info HERE.

A charity that matters to me is the American Cancer Society. Not only is it a cause close to my family’s heart, but is is a cause that my friend and her family help to raise money for every year. My friend and her family have run the Chicago Marathon seven years over, to raise money for the ACS in memory of her brother. This year, my friend is running the New York City Marathon for the American Cancer Society DetermiNATION Team. In the past, I have sold my cards to help raise just a little more money for her. 🙂 She is a rockstar in my book! ❤

Help spread the word for a worthy cause close to you! Join in HERE. ❤

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead! 🙂

Take care- Jill 🙂

Forever Favorite

Hi All! I wanted to share a card I finished late last night using my Daily Marker 30 Day project. I always love Kathy’s challenge and I’m really trying to use all the things I color this time–sooner than later!

I love this little My Favorite Nut set from Neat & Tangled (and dies). I also used N & T’s stencil, Polygon.  I also need to point out that this is the third card I’ve made this month using purple! Likely more purple than I used in all of 2017. Haaaaaa! Putting out that olive branch, I tell ya! 🙂 I used Distress Oxide Inks for the mix: Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, and Wilted Violet.

Oh and the “forever” is from THIS Neat & Tangled set.

I colored these cuties with Copic Markers. I added some N&T sequin confetti to this card too. You can find similar ones HERE. 🙂

Take care! Jill 🙂
