Today's project is a birthday card for my father-in-law. He has received many cards from me over the years and this year I wanted to try out a humorous card. I colored the goat using very light alcohol markers. Stampin' Up! carries a line of markers but they do not go light enough for the coloring I had envisioned so I used the following Copic markers:

so, when I saw the bear in the sneak peek I was sure it would be a repeat of last month. Boy was I surprised. It is a card kit with three...

This week I explore two more curvy die cards. Each one uses a different DSP. I did use a pin as inspiration for the first card -> pin link. For this project I stayed away from what I typically make, so no vertical and no Real Red or Shaded Spruce (these are my go to Christmas colors).
