No, it's not an old post!

From the above card it looks like I am confused as to what month it is. But I am not that confused these days. My second challenge over at CDAC is for a seasonal card and since it is still winter I thought a Christmas card was appropriate. I have been wanting to make a card from this image anyway. I love the kewpies and how cute they are with the reindeer. I think I got this image off a blog but I am not sure which one. I colored them using Tombow markers and a blender pen and a stardust gold pen.

I have begun to make myself do one creative thing a day(which does not include cooking) to train myself to do it naturally again. I have been amazed at how much crafting other people get done and how little I do these days. So I am trying to make it a habit again.  Sometimes I just color digi images but that inspires me to make a card with it the next time. It is important for us to experience creativity of some kind I think. It makes you look at the world differently. It  helps you to calm your mind and be soothed from too much of a technological world.

Anyway this card is for a color challenge over at the Paperwishes message board.  I just got this Hot off the Press owl stamp and I love him.  He will be showing up quite often.

Well I am off to babysit 2 of my granddaughters and of course make crafts with them. The 1 year old made a valentine by putting stickers on a heart. She is well on her way to becoming a great crafter.  Have a great day and stay warm!
