Happy Belated Birthday-Magnolia Stamp Lover Challenge

I know I haven't posted in awhile, still working on my "project". But had to take a welcoming brake to make two cards for work. The first is for the Postman who delivers to our school. When he saw a card that I made, he asked me to make a card for his Aunt who's birthday was last month. Hard to believe that the Postman is sending a belated birthday He asked that I use anything educational related. So I thought this adorable Magnolia was just the right one. It was also my first attempt at darker skin tones. Thanks to Suzanne Deans tutorial I was able to accomplish this. Anyway, I just used this image for the calendar so it was still out. So, can you guess what month they were for? 9 months down and 3 to go which technically is only 36 left.. Hopefully I will be done by next week. At least that's my goal.

This is for the Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge Punch it Up!!since I used my Nellie Snellin Flower Punch for the flowers, SU Corner Punch & the SU tag punch for the sentiment

Ride Um Cowboy

This is a quick post, I made this for my little "great" nephew who just turned 5. He is such a cutie. Unfortunatly, I haven't been able to join in on any of the challenges because I've been working on my monthly calendars so that has been taking up all of my time. I am usually done by now, but because I waited until October to begin this "project", that is all I've been working on. I have been taking my images to work and coloring the images during my lunch hour, I've been averaging 2-3 so it has been taking me a week just to color the images. On a good note, I am done with the first 5 months, and almost done with the 6th...Yeah.

Thanks for looking
