Hi everyone!  Yay, we were spared the snow…this time.  But we do have some rough sounding wind out there.  Something is whistling like crazy.  Eek.  I probably won’t sleep well tonight. I’ll be too worried about a tree falling on the house or the siding blowing off.  (Tomorrow might be a “Venti” kind of day.  Ooooohhhh…new Starbucks flavor, Cherry Mocha.  Yum!)

While I had my Go Ahead…Wish Unity kit out, I decided to make the first of many birthday cards I’ll need in the next couple of months.  I’m really trying to stay ahead of the game this time.  (**trying**)

Go Ahead…Wish


I used my SU markers to ink the image and sentiment, then used my Copics to add a bit of shading and coloring.  Super easy and really quick.  (I can’t say that about very many of my cards.  Some take days.  I’m slow.)

I might as well send out a warning right now.  I have (literally) a marathon of upcoming posts.  Some days (many) I will have two…like Saturday.  My JiFFy friends and I will be back with our February challenge and I’ll have my Kraftin’ Kimmie Saturday challenge card to share as well.  Then in the upcoming days, I’ll have new Kraftin’ Kimmie and My Favorite Things.  Whew.  I’ve been crankin’.  I hope all the extra posts don’t drive you crazy.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great night/day!
