Christmas Work

I stamped and then used colored pencils to complete the picture and then placed it in a nice frame and I actually sold some at a Holiday Faire.

I colored the wreath with four different shades of Brown, Yellow and Gold. The shading turned out wonderful eventhough it took me and hour just to do the wreath.

Sorry this picture has a glare on the glass.

The glare is in a different place in this photo so you can see the second cardinal better.

Here's a different stamp I did. I has Poinsettia's which I colored with markers. It has a dark green boarder and is then placed on a light blue note card with a white envelope which has poinsettias on the bottom corner.
I even sold some of these too.

First Step

I’ve finally made my first step and now I’m definitely a little shaky.

What to say - well . . .

Let’s start with my Blog’s Title - Imagine*Mary - this is a take on Imaginary and my name Mary. Not too hard to figure out but a definite indicator of who I am.

I like to do just about every craft there is and have tried my hand at many, good with some, terrible with others. There’s still lots out there to try so I have something to look forward too when I’m old and gray and 98. Please be patient while I struggle in the beginning.

Now I’d like to wish everyone a Happy New Year.

H ours of happy times with friends and family

A bundant time for relaxation
P rosperity
P lenty of love when you need it the most
Y outhful excitement at lifes simple pleasures

N ights of restful slumber
E verything you need
W ishing you love and light

Y ears and years of good health
E njoyment and mirth
A angels to watch over you
R embrances of a happy years !
