caution...art in progress...

Would you believe I have so many projects sitting in some sort of finishing stage...and still not finished! lol
I do! I bet I'm not the only one, but where did last week go? I colored a little, sewed a group of cards up, still need to pull out the Vagabond for some embossed pieces...but time flew. Alas, I have a couple small square cards to share. and...I 'm gonna show you what I did last night, with my friend Dana.  :)
Here is little 'Holly', a stocking headed mouse, waiting for Santa. or mischief? He's another piece to the Stacey Yacula set at Purple Onion Designs. Can you tell I tried to not make this so smack-dab-in-the-middle. I know it's not traditional in color, but I wanted a soft mauve-y cap and there was no Christmas paper in my stash this color. {my stash is so small these days...I didn't buy any new holiday paper}
Next, I have a Mo Manning digi image, from way back, sitting on my computer...
Someone I work with, like pink/aqua, so this is for her. It was supposed to be a single layer card, but my 'merry Christmas' sentiment was just ever so slightly off. It drove me NUTS. But, I love this simple sewn tag look, so I won't throw in the towel. haha
What I played with last night, was some mixed media goodness. I bought a pack of 9 chunky canvases from Michael's {50% off}...
Dana made one for herself, my 3, so I have 5 more to finish! These are 3"x3", I also have some 2"x2" thin canvases, that will be turned into ornaments. This is not my artistic idea...these are inspired from taking Christy Tomlinson's 'She Art' classes and Junelle Jacobson's ornament class from 2011. My artsy friend Ann-Marie took the '12 Artsy Ornaments 2011' class, and sent me one of her ornaments. Kinda She Art-meets winter! Last night we just played and cut paper and hats.
Today, I am heading over to Michaels to return some and take Story to see Santa at Petsmart. Then, dinner out at an amazing Italian place for Jordan's birthday. 
fa la la la laaaaaaa
Here's a shot of my 4 month old pony, rolling on my bedroom floor.

I have both of those images, the mouse and the elf and they have yet to see ink. I think I have too many images and not enough time. How did that happen?! Colored to perfection! Love the non traditional mousey!

Now those canvases made me go "ahhhh!" I love the poses! The girl with the mittens over her mouth! You're killing me with your talent :)
