Ollie & Olivia

Don't you just love Ollie and Olivia?! I do! I've been playing today with some stamped images Deb from Cassville, NY sent me.

I've noticed a lot of the stampin' bloggers looking for their mojo and wondered if I was going to experience that after making so many Christmas cards. Can I really make anything else now? I think I'm gonna be okay.
My first card is Ollie the pirate, I colored him with my Copic markers. I used the clear Copic Spica Glitter marker on his sword after coloring it with Neutral Gray. I used Stampin' Up! Sarah retired designer paper. I'm working on using my paper and having fun with it.

My kids brought home report cards yesterday so I made a couple of cards for them to tell them they're doing great and I'm so proud of them. This one is Michael's, Jenny's looks like the one in the last post with the snail and flowers.


For my second card with Ollie & Olivia I used the scraps again from my friends' mini ablums. That paper is all gone now and I finished his project today. The Modge Podge is drying on the last tin and I need to put the hardware back on it and it's deliverable.

Have a great day!

Hi Jan~

How sweet of you to make cards for your kids. They must have felt really good receiving them!

Your cards are totally cute! I love the colors that you used and the images are fabulous!

Very cute cards...I'm sure your kids loved them. Sometimes I'll slip little notes in my kids' lunch boxes. They are still little (7 and 10) but I know someday they won't think that is "cool" anymore.
