Happy Thanksgiving Everyone-Huggin Mary & Doodle Queen

Well here you go ladies,a real face to the name! Here is Huggin Mary and Doodle Queen Karen, now I know they are both going to LOVE me for putting this picture up.
This is from convention this past weekend...look at those beautiful smiles how could I not post this picture.
Wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, and show you what I am thankful for.
Good friends, laughter, and crafting are the best!!!

This is another card Huggin Mary made for us to use on our display at convention.Can you believe all the wonderful details in this card? Huggin Mary likes to do putszy projects and it really shows in her projects.That Bigsby List image was embossed on vellum and then colored. She also used some liquid applique to add some more detail.
Can you see the Santa image on the background writing his Christmas list? Now how great an idea is this card? Just had to share with all of you...remember to leave her some love so she knows how much you enjoy her cards and projects.

How About a Christmas Moose???

This first card was made by my friend Mary (huggin Mary)...she stamped the new rubber stamp of this fun image of a moose made by Karen's Doodles.
This second card is done by me and I used the digital image of the same moose from Karen's Doodles.
Can you see that it is fun to try different ways to make cards? We both had fun playing with the new moose. I colored mine with Copics and I really like the look, I just wish I had more colors to give this image a better color palette.

This little box is a rubber stamped image I had sitting on my work table and didn't want to toss it away.I just made a matchbox slider box...I got the pattern from The Toy Maker.
I used watercolor pencils and mineral spirits.

Do You Like This Image???

While we are at One Of A Kind Convention we are using this image for the Make N Take. The first picture is the Digital image I printed out to use inside the box. The box pattern is from Stampin Up.It is a sneak peek at another Bigsby image and I like how he is peering outside the scallop- I put a piece of acetate over this scallop, it helps hold in the crinkle paper and candy added.

This card was made by Mary and she used the rubber stamp of Bigsby in the stocking

This next picture shows that she made Bigsby movable. The stamp set she used is from Close to my Heart.
