E Is For The Pop-Up Easter Card

Here is a pop-up Easter card that I made with a hand drawn daffodil and hand drawn grass in the background.

Do you like Easter and making cards rather than just buying one at the store? If so, you can watch the video that I made for my hub on how to make an Easter pop up card. I truly hope you enjoy this craft idea because any object can be attached to a pop-up card. Perhaps this will give you a bit of inspiration for making your own Easter cards.

What is your favorite type of holiday to make cards for? I have found over the years I love making Easter cards because spring is a season of renewal, and it makes me feel invigorated.

D Is For Drawing

Today’s post gets straight to the point, and the letter D is for drawing, or at least finishing up an old drawing that I left behind. This is a simple illustration with my cat Irina standing next to a large impressionistic flower. This drawing is a bit of a stretch because cats do not usually stand next to vases with flowers of this magnitude, but this illustration is meant to emulate the feelings cats have when standing next to a human.

Here I am beginning to draw Irina standing next to a large impressionistic flower.

I will continue adding color to this drawing as it progressing, so come back to see how it turns out.

C Is For Finishing The Christmas Tree Illustration In March

Yes, I know this is blog post is being published in April, but keep in mind many of us wrote our A to Z blog posts in advance, and I just happened to compose this blog post during the month of March.  It was quite liberating to work on the A to Z blog posts in any which letter order that struck my fancy, and I was excited to finally finish the Christmas tree illustration I had started back in December.  It was a simple illustration and I have since  lost the green marker I started it with, so I decided to finish this drawing with a different green marker and colored pencils to give the pine needles a bit of depth.

Here is the Christmas tree illustration that was unfinished from December.

The completed Christmas tree drawing was simple and fun to create with markers, colored pencils, and an ink pen.
