About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, a mother, and a full time illustrator. I have a son who is 8, and a daughter 5. Drawing & Digital painting is my life, but wish drawing digis was my full time job b/c I get so much satisfaction from it! For now it is a hobby that is mainly for my babies, and my escape from the strict guideline of the lisenced properties I work on in everyday life! I LOVE my day job too. I create small MMO games for major featured films, anything ranging from Dreamworks Madagascar, Ice Age, Tin Tin, or Puss In Boots to projects as small as My Little Pony, Barbie, and Hello Kitty to name a small few. I enjoy painting traditionally and digitally, and there are days where I wish I had four arms so I can do everything! Family comes first for me - life is just too short, so I try to find a happy balance between crafts and my full time career.

Beary Christmas Nana!

Here is my Christmas card I made for my Nana who lives in England.  Sadly she is blind, which is why this card had to be made extra special just for her!  Just because she is blind doesn't mean she doesn't deserve a lovely card from her granddaughter right?  So, to make this card suit her needs, I made the card extra BIG so she can use her trusty giant magnifier to study what little she can see.   I wanted to make her a card that had a lot of depth (3 layers).  So I made some snow banks and layered them.  I also cut out the Christmas TeddyBear digital stamp so she can feel the shape.  I also put glitter on the snow banks for her to touch.  I used papers that Kim  from JustWordz gave me from her stash, and used the ones that had a nice texture on them.  My Nana should be able to feel the snowflakes and the trees with these beautiful, glittery papers.­  I put a few embellishments around the "Beary Christmas" sentiment (I lucked out with some pearls that fit perfectly on the sentiment, and used my pearl pen for the smaller pearl beads).  Next I ripped off some Christmas lights from an old reindeer statue that I was going to throw away - I completely violated this poor deer and stripped him completely of his embellies - teehee!  I feel so dirty!  But hey, I now have a nice little Christmas bulb that matched my papers.  A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!  ;)
I used my Promarkers of course:

BEAR: Walnut, Cocoa, Cinnamon, EARS: Antique Pink, Baby Pink, NOSE: Warm Grey 5,3 and 1
CANDY CANE: Burgundy, Crimson, Poppy, Pastel Blue and Blender, Pink, Emerald, Apple
RIBBON: Pine, Emerald, Mint Green, Pastel Green, RIBBON DETAIL: Pine, Apple,

Glitter Liner made by Viva #908 Holo Iridescent: Used on Candy Cane bow, snowbanks

Christmas Teddy Bear digital stamp can be purchased HERE!

Well I missed last week's post.  Sadly I had so many co­mputer problems I just said "forget it!!!"  and resorted to posting on my RedonkulousFacebook Fan Page.   For those of you who are not on my Facebook Fan Page, I'd like to tell you that I have posted another cute Fairy digital stamp called "Fairy Blossom".  I love this digi because she comes with or without the flower, not to mention she will melt your heart or recipients heart!  She is available to purchase now!  =)  As for my computer, it is temporarily working.  So, starting today I have decided to go on holiday to do some major website and computer maintenance - Ha! Not really a holiday huh?  You may not see some new digi stamps until January, but you will still see me around.  Tis the season to be Redonkulously busy!!!  Have a super crafty week - Oh who am I kidding?  HURRY!  Get out there and finish up that Christmas shopping - EEK! =)
