Celebration Day 5

Today's extraordinary designer is Linda Bickley.  Linda has chosen three very different types of images for her cards, highlighting the diversity of images posted at Digital Two for Tuesday.  I just love her ribbon accents, choices of papers and her expertise with Copics.  
Here is Linda's bio and project descriptions in her own words.  
"I'm a SAHW, married to my best friend Tim. We have 2 children and 5 grandchildren. We live in Arizona. I have done crafting most of my life, but found card making about 10 years ago and it is my favorite craft.  I really love to color digital images with Coptic Markers, it's like being a kid again. 
You can find me at my blog Coffee, Crafts, and Conversations ( ) when I have started sharing my cards and what is going on in my life.

 I know Christmas is over but I couldn't resist using this Santa image i found on in holiday trio 7, dated Dec. 7,2010 I love the old fashion look to him. I colored him with Copic Markers. I used Stampin Up products for this card. Basic Black cardstock, the stripped paper is the Season of Style designer paper. The sentiment is from the Santa's List stamp set. I also used Cherry Cobbler 
Dazzling Details for the berries. I don't remember where I got the ribbon, have had it a long time.

I really like the expression on the little girl. She looks like she has a secret to tell. She is from Cute Kids Dec27 ,2013.

I colored her with Copic Markers. The card stock and sentiment are from Stampin Up (Early Espresso CS, Four You stamp set) the designer paper was from a pack I picked up a few years ago, don't remember the designer. The same with the ribbon.

I love the look on this lady's face. Makes you wondering what she is thinking. I left the inside of this card blank and will add a sentiment when I decide who I want to send it to. You could use this one for many different sentiments, Thinking of You, Miss You, Wish You Were Here, to name a few.

 I found her on the Nov. 13, 2010 post.

The card stock is Stampin Up. The paper and ribbon have been in my stash for many years and don't remember where it came from."
