Busy, Busy Weekend!

Well, this weekend didn't exactly go as planned...not been feeling so hot so missed ALL the fun stuff I had planned and ended up doing lots of work to make my deadlines!  I've done cards for these customers the last 3 years so I knew what to expect- they always get 20 gay themed cards which are both fun and challenging to do and 10 general cards.  The gay cards always incorporate the rainbow and I'm always trying to top what I did the year before...
For the first card I used both the Bo Bunny design paper and matching clear stamp for the tree.  Once colored with my Copics as a rainbow it just took a few same colored gems and a little star at the top and the card was done.  It actually looks much cuter in person!
Second card I used the berries on the holly to do my rainbow, and as always, a little bling is always a good idea :)  Some Making Memories Fa La La La design paper and the base of the card was done...not to difficult.
The last set of cards are just general Christmas cards.  I found this digital tree stamp from Gingerloft.blogspot.com and it's just so pretty!  I took some muted Copic greens and brown and colored it in lightly.  Then I used a little stickles in Frosted Lace for the snow on the boughs of the tree.  It makes such a gorgeous image.  A little red suede paper from JoAnn's to mat the image and some more of that Little Yellow Bicycle green snowflake paper and it was complete.

So, a successful weekend of work, here's hoping I start feeling better because my 9-5 job starts bright and early tomorrow morning!
