Pretty Lady

Well good afternoon all you wonderful crafters.  I am posting this pretty lady for all to see.  She is an image drawn by Fernanda Oravec.  She draws them and gives them to her friends.  She has given out a few now and this is my favorite so far.  I am taking a coloring class with Kit and Clowder of of Facebook and I used her for one of the practice images.  I still have a long way to go but trust me I have improved a lot.  I just wanted to show you all and invite you to come over to Kit and Clowder and join in the classes if you want to improve your coloring.  Alyce is an amazing teacher and the classes are forever and no time limit to doing them.  I like that cause I can take my time and get it right instead of an 8 hour class and trying to learn it all.  NOT possible to do that.  I hope you like my "Pretty Lady"  Leave me some love and let me know what you think of her.  Thanks for coming to my blog, I appreciate it. Happy Crafting.

Festival Lilly

Good evening all.  Tonite I am posting my entry  for a challenge on Kit and Clowder Facebook page.  Her name is Festival Lilly and she was a freebie from "All Dressed up Stamps for the challenge.  I have been taking the skin and hair classes with Alyce of Kit and Clowder and I am seeing a big change in my images.  The hair has long way to go but I see the difference in the skin.  I am working on the hair classes now.  I enjoy coloring so much I do it most everyday.  If you haven't been to the Kit and Clowder Facebook page you should stop by and join in the fun.  The ladies who post there are fun and friendly and have some amazing images posted.  So come down and join the fun with us.  I hope you like my card.  I used copics to color it, I only started using copics within the past 6 months or so and boy am I addicted to them.  I love the way they look.  The background paper is a digi paper from Doodle pantry and I love the idea that I can print the ones I like and use most.  So come on down and play along with us.  Happy Crafting all.

Have a Bloomi-ful day

Good morning to all you crafters out there.  Today my post is for Tuesday Throwdown Challenge "Homemade flowers"  I colored these pretty flowers with my copics and the cut into each of the pedals about half way so I could shape then as I wanted then.   I colored the 3 sets of light colored leaves with copics and put them on the card then the two dark sets of leaves I cut with a stampin-up die cut.  The butterflies are also a stampin-up die cut that cuts and embosses at the same time.  I sprayed the butterflies with a glitter spray that was a gift from a friend.  The card was cut with from the spellbinders large labels die.  The sentiment is part of another set of digi's by doodle pantry.  I decided I didn't want to add an image to this just a lot of flowers.  I hope you will all come down to Tuesday Throwdown and play along with us here:  Just make some pretty homemade flowers and make a card.  Easy peasy right ?  It sure is fun and satisfying to see something you make come to life.  I love to make flowers of all kinds.  I hope you will come join the fun.  Happy Crafting all.

Good Morning to you all.  Today is posting day for Tuesday Throwdown challenge "Lets have a picnic"  I chose the hot apple pie from Meljen's  You can get that stamp here:  They have lots and lots of wonderful digi stamps here.  I colored this stamp with my copics and love it.  I added some glossy accents to the bow to make it look a bit more satin looking.  I cut it out with a spellbinders die cut that I had.  The paper is from recollections pack that I got a long time ago.  The ants are from another digi set that I printed and colored for embellishments.  What kind of picnic can you have without ants?  LOL  The sentiment is also from the set of Ant stamps.  They just seem to go together.  I hope you like my little card I think it came out great.  Come on down and join the fun at Tuesday Throwdown challenge here:  Just make up a picnic card and join us for some fun.  I hope to see you all there.  Great prizes as well and who doesn't like prizes.  Happy Crafting all.

The Lighthouse

Hi All,  today I am posting my lighthouse card.  I love lighthouses and have photographed many of them around the eastern seaboard.  I love this image by Imagine that by Kris here:  She has so many great sets of stamps.  You get more then one digi and some greetings to go with it with each set.  She has a progressive challenge as well.  Hop over to her blog to find out more about it.  I colored my image with copics and mounted it on a pices of blue designer paper that was just a scrap I had left so have NO clue who it is by.  I liked the way it looked under the image so I chose that one.  I used black and white twine to go under the image to give it a more masculine feel.  The base card is dark blue and the sentiment is one that comes with the image.  I  hope you like my card and will leave me some love.  Lighthouses are my favorite to photograph they have such life to them.  Have a wonderful crafting day!!

Lady in Pink

Hi all today I am posting my Lady in Pink. She is an image that I got from Eastwind on Facebook.  I colored her with my copic's.  The framing around her is cut with my cameo and I love the fact that you can resize the images to fit your needs.  The back ground paper is from a recollections pack that I got over a year ago an still haven't used it all.  The ribbon was added for the challenge at Eastwind and I made the bow with a bow maker that my husband made for me.  I really love the way this one turned out.
I want to enter her into the challenge at Through the craft room door. here:
I hope you will come down to the challenge and join in it is as always anything goes.  They have some great prizes this week from ArtbyMiran and they are beautiful images as well.

Flower Pot Pretty

Hi Everyone.  I wanted to post this beautiful image from Lacy Sunshine Stamps today.  I got her as a freebie on Lacy Sunshine Facebook page.  I love Heather's images they are all so adorable.  I colored her with my copics and cut out the image with a spellbinders die cut.  The swirl at the bottom was cut from my silhouette and the Thank you was cut on my Cricut.  Yes I have both and yes I use both a lot. The butterfly is a stampin-up punch.  I just added a couple of gems to add some bling.  I love bling but thought just a couple was enough.  I didn't want to take away from the image.  Check out Heathers store for some wonderful images here: I promise you won't be sorry you did.  Happy Crafting all.

Christmas in July

Hello to all you wonderful crafters.  Today I am posting for the first time for Imagine that by Kris. I am so excited to tell you that I was chosen to be a summer guest designer for her.  She has these wonderful images with lots of images in one set that you can buy here:  I strongly suggest you check her site out it is fantastic.  Now on to my card.  It was a fun card to do as it is really hot here right now.  Thinking of Christmas in this heat was sorta hard but I did it.  I had to go drag out my Christmas papers and embellishments as well.  I guess I will leave them out and start making my Christmas cards now, not to early so they say.  I always send out homemade cards so need a few and would be good to get started on them now that my stuff is out.  (Have you started on yours yet and if not here is a perfect set to get you started!!)  I colored my image with copics and used some sakura gel pens for bling.  My embellisments are from Martha Stewart collection.  I used a small tree and the snowflakes I took apart and used just the small portion of them.  I cut the image out with a spellbinders die.  I really like how this turned out.  I hope you will come over to ImaginThatbyKris and play along with our challenge this week.  Happy Crafting to you all.  I hope you will leave some love as I do read each and everyone of them.  Have a craft-tastic day!!!

Tiny Eveningpuff HobGobbi

Hi all,  today or I guess I should say good evening, it is after 11:00 here.  This is my HobGobbie by Heater Valentine at Lacy Sunshine Stamps.  She is just the cutest little creature I have seen in a long time.  There are 8 of them all together I think.  I colored her with my copics.  I used all scarps of paper that I found in my scrap box.  My butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and the small flowers are punched from a small EK Success punch with a jewel in the center.  I hope you like my little HobGobbie and will go checkout Lacy Sunshine site to buy your own personal HobGobbie.  I hope you have a wonderful day or evening...  Happy Crafting.

My Dinosaur

Well good morning to you all.  It is bright and shiny here today.  Although it is suppose to rain later.  I just wanted to post my DT card for Tuesday Throwdown challenge for this week.  He is a darling Dinosaur that is worried about getting old.  LOL  The image came from My Graphico  Here:  
They have great digi's to play with so go on over and check them out.  I colored all of it with copics and just pop dotted the volcano to the card. Which is from DCWV all about boys pack.  I then pop dotted the dinosaur on as well.  I am using this for my grandson's birthday so didn't want to make it to frilly.  He actually loved it and he is into dinosaurs right now so this was perfect.  The feet came with the set so I make them look like embellishments and added them to the top.  I hope you like my card and will come play along with us this week at Tuesday Throwdown challenge.  Here is the link so you can fly on over and play.  Happy crafting to you all.  Have a wonderful day.

Lady in Blue

Good evening to you all.  Tonite I am posting a card that I did yesterday and fell in love with it.  I colored it with copics for my class in Kit and Clowder and thought it turned out really sweet.  I made a hinged card as well which is a first for me.  It was relatively easy as well.  It is a new die cut that i got at the expo this year in Orlando.  I really like it and the blue is a beautiful die as well from the  same set.  I will certainly be using them a lot more often.  I have decided that I am going to make a set of these as a gift.  The image is one from Jade Dragonne from Deviant Art she is an amazing artist and her faces are perfect for practicing my skin tones on.  I sure hope you like her, I know I do.  I am going to enter her into some of the contest or challenges that I can find.  Happy Crafting all.
