Purple Onions Christmas Cards




 
I made these cards last night.  The cards (except the cups) are colored with my new Chromatix Markers that are alcohol based.  I'm still learning how to shade with them, and to try not to color right up to the image line as the color tends to bleed outide the lines a bit.  The cups were colored with prismacolor pencils.  Loving these stamps though, I still have about 10 more Christmas cards to make, and if I was really smart, I would make a bunch for next year in January.  Not sure if I'm really smart though....
These zippered pouches were made with a tutorial I found at Noodlehead.  It's the open wide pouch, and it really is very roomy.  The toadstools, and kite ties are the medium size (gifts for my girls) and the aqua/grey in the background is the large size as part of my sister's gift.  That's all for now folks, linking up to The Needle and Thread Network today and Freshly Pieced.  I only have one WIP piece to report, a quilt top I made in the summer needs to be finished, but other than that I will resume sewing after the holidays!

I must try those pouches, they look great.
Your cards are wonderful.
At this time of the year, I think we all say we are going to be smart and do things earlier than next year, but somehow we always forget.
