Red, Purple, Blue

It is Wednesday - so that means it is time for my Mad for Markers post.

Christmas is only a little over a month away and I have not yet finished my cards. How aobut all of you....??? I definately do not want to be leaving to the last minute - in fact I normally try and get my cards out the first week of Christmas. Phew - and then I wait for cards to arrive in case I forgot someone - which happens quite often.

As I am not in a very creative mind at the moment I decided to print out multiples of the same image and colour them in different colours. So here they are. Hope you get some inspiration.

The Limit

Morning everyone. Hope we are all well. I must apologize to you all for my lack of posts. I have come to the conclusion that I can't keep making cards for the sake of making cards. Why you ask...??? I have about 400 cards sitting here gathering dust as no one wants to buy them and also because it is not cheap to make so many cards all the time. So I have taken a little break. Will still be doing posts on a Wednesday for Mad for Markers and also do releases for Spesch but am finding I have no motivation to make cards for anything else. I hope you understand.

This card I made a while ago and haven't posted on my blog (at least I think I haven't - if I have I again apologize).

Alice in Zombieland

Good afternoon everyone. How are we all....??? I am too excited. Over at Spesch Stamps we have a out of the ordinary release for you. I got the very talented Max to design an Alice in Zombieland range and boy am I chuffed with them. They are wonderful to colour and so gruesome. If you are a zombie fan like myself you will love them. Make sure you call in to the Spesch blog to see the previews.

So I made three cards with three different sketches.

First up is the sketch from Sketch Saturday using Zombie Alice.

I covered the rabbits head with the text for a reason.
Look what is in Alice's hand.
Next up is the sketch from Stampin' for the Weekend using the Zombie Queen.

Last but not least is the sketch from The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge.
