November Birthdays!

I was unsure about this Tim Holtz butterfly die ("Fanciful Flight") at first, but now I LOVE IT!  Also, his "Tattered Banners" really rock!  After this card was all put together, I misted it with turquoise Perfect Pearls mist.
I had so much fun making this card for my nephew.  It features the Tim Holtz' "Regal Crest" die and the "Bricked" embossing folder.  The brick background really adds to the theme (whatever the theme is, that is!)
I don't use my Copic markers nearly as much as I should.  Since Copics are so easy to use, I almost feel like a real artist when I use them.  Hee hee!
I love the way this card turned out.  Again, this is classic Tim Holtz goodness through and through.  It features Timmy's "Old Jalopy" die.  After assembling the car, I covered it in Clear Rock Candy crackle paint.  Pure awesomeness!  I even used some of that plastic packaging stuff for the car windows.  You probably can't see that in the photo, so just trust me on this, 'k?
What?  More Tim Holtz?  Yeah, that guy just makes me smile.  For this card, I used the "Weathered Clock" die with some crackle paint.
Any other Twi-Hards out there?  Wasn't Breaking Dawn Part 1 awesome?  After seeing it last weekend at midnight with my Super-Twi-Hard sister-in-law, I made this card for her.  I found the SVG chess pieces online here ( and downloaded them and cut them with my Cricut Expression.  (In case you are curious, I am TEAM EDWARD, but really, could you go wrong either way?  I don't think so!)  ;-)


  1. Love the butterfly and the clocks! Gorgeous work!

  2. Kathy,
    You have been busy! I love the Copic marker on the bottles--you did a great job! Bottles are always hard to color. Fabulous!
