Hey everyone!  Just wanted to post this card today for you all to see.  I am not sure who the artist is but I love this set of masks.  I left most of it black and white then colored the roses red with the leaves green of course.   I used my copics to color this an it has been sitting in my craft room for a very long time not made into a card.  I was trying to clean in there yesterday and ran across lots of images that I have colored over time but not made into cards so I sat and made like 5 cards yesterday.  An no the room did not get finished but hopefully soon.  I have 3 images to do for my DT positions then I will go back to cleaning the room and trying to organize it.  I was just so pleased with this image that I wanted to put it here on my blog for you all to see.  I hope you like it as much as I do.  Plain an simple seemed to be the right thing here.

Happy Crafting to you all!!

Good morning to you all.  Today I am posting this adorable mouse that is cooking up a feast for Christmas.  At least for me he is.  You could use this image for most anything but I chose to do a Christmas card with him.  You can get this adorable image at Imagine That by Kris here:  You get sentiments and digital papers with this image as well as colored and lined art.  You can't beat the prices on Kris's images as you always get more then just one.  I know he will be used for more then one card. 

I colored this one with copics and mounted him to one of the papers included in the set.  The sentiment is also with the set.  I added the ribbon and bow plus the holly for some bling as well as the gems.  I hope you like my card and it will inspire you to start your Christmas cards as well.

Happy Crafting to you all.

My Time Will Tell

Well Hello everyone,  today is my day to inspire you.  This beautiful image is called My Time Will Tell and you can get it here:  We are all doing the same image this week and you can see what a diverse collection of this image that we have.  I would like to invite you to come play along with us at Ching-Chou Kuik stamps here: Our theme this month is All creatures big and small so come on down and play along. 

We also have a facebook challenge too so come play along with us there as well. 

I colored the image with my copics and mounted her on some turquoise paper, with the corners punched with a fiskars punch.  The flower is a die cut from Heartfelt creations but not sure of the name as it is a gift from a friend.  I only got a couple of each die cuts from each she she had but love it.  The leaves are a die cut from a spellbinders cut.  I love the way this one turned out she is such a beautiful image and had so much fun coloring her. 

So till next time Happy Crafting and hope to see you in the challenge.

Good Morning.  Wow I am on a roll with the images from Imagine That by Kris.  This one is called Ice Cream Boy.  I choose to call it Love as I love ice cream but really I made this from my hubby for fathers day and he loves Ice Cream as much if not more then I do.  This is just one of the images that Kris has about Ice Cream as there is a girl and an Ice Cream Parlour truck to color as well.  They all have line drawings and colored images along with some sentiments.  I strongly encourage you to go check out her store and I know you will fall in love with her images.  Here is her website addy to make it easy for you to find her and yes I am an enabler If I buy something wonderful I want everyone to have some. So as not to get off track here is the address:
I made a hinged card this time with a spell binders die cut.  I really like this card cut and use it a lot.  I colored the image with copics of course.  I rounded only two corners of the image and two on the sentiment.  The Love is a punch from fiskars and was given to me from a girl friend.  Once I run out I will have to go buy the punch if I can find it or beg her for more.  I love it.  I hope you like my card and will leave me some love and go check out the images at Kris's store.  You promise won't be sorry.  Happy Crafting all.

Tea for Two

Hi everyone.  Can you see this adorable image in your stash?  I think this image is wonderful and brings back so many fond memories of my sisters and I.  I just had to color it.  This image was drawn for Kris's daughters when they were little.  You can find this image at the shop Imagine That by Kris here:  She has several other sentiments to go with this set and there is also a colored version that she did.  She has also put a couple of extra images in there if you want to do some layering on this card.  I did print the cat and the flowers but decided not to use them.  I just love those two little faces as they remind me of my sisters.  They were always asking to play tea party. 

I colored this image with copics and used the gems for flowers on the die cut and that is from the cricut machine and one of the cartridge and I can't remember which one now.  The sentiment is from the set and the background paper is from Isabella and I got that from a friend who was cleaning out her stash.  I do hope you like my card and will go hop over to Imagine That by Kris and get some of her wonderful images.  She is a fantastic artist and has some really great images to choose from.  Thanks for checking out my cards and I hope you will leave me some love.  Happy Crafting to you all.

Pink Boots

Good afternoon to you all.  My post today is an older image from Imagine That by Kris.  You can still get this image in her shop if you want to go check it out here is the web addy for her:  Kris has some awesome images to choose from, most of her or maybe even all of there sets have the colored image and the line drawing for you to color.  She also includes some sentiments with the sets as well and she is very reasonable with her prices.  She has a part of the store set up for the people across the pond for that VAT tax they have to pay. 

With this card I decided to do a twisted easel card.  This is only my second try at this and I really like the way it looks.  It is different and lays down to be put into a 6x6 envelope.  I am a passionate lover of flowers so any image that has flowers in it I love.  I have so many flower images I am not sure I will ever get to coloring them and making cards.  Sometimes I will just sit and make note cards for gifts to have on hand and make the box for them to go into.  That is normally when I use a few different images of flowers.  I also decorate the box with flowers. 

I colored this image with my copics and am thinking I need more colors now.  I do hope you will hop over to Kris's store and check out her selection of images she has them for every occasion.  Well all till next time Happy Crafting.   


Good morning to you all.  Today is my day for Inspiring you.  My image is called "Ponderer".  You can get this beautiful image here: along with a lot of other beautiful stamps.

I colored her with copics and the background is pan pastels.  The butterfly is a die that I borrowed from a friend to cut a few for myself so I don't know who it is by.  I cut this into a center step card this time.  I really like the way they look.

I want to invite you all to come play along with us at our Monthly challenge here: and the theme this month is:  "All creatures great and small" so I hope to see you all there.

We also have a challenge on Facebook as well if you want to enter that for a chance to win some free stamps. The address for that is:

So till next time Happy Crafting to you all.

Orange Poppy

Hey everyone.

      I wanted to post this card that I made today.  The image is from Anne Fenton of the Outlawz and was from the Freebie Challenge at the Outlawz.  I did one that is red and I like it so much (flowers are my favorite) I decided to do another one in orange.  I really like the way it turned out.  I colored it with copics and used a sharpie pen to make it darker.  The flower is a new punch from Fiskars and it turned out really well.  I have more ideas for this punch as it looks like it can be used for leaves as well.  The background swirl is a die cut from spell binders.  The striped paper is a scarp from my stash.   The tiny butterfly is from stampin-up. 

     I do really like this image and you can have it too if you join the Outlawz web site.  They have a different challenge for each day of the week so come on down and join the fun. 

Happy Crafting. 

Purple Dragonfly

Good morning to you all.  Today my image is from Ching-Chou Kuik Stamps.  The name of this image is "Purple Dragon fly".  I love how she turned out.  You can get her here:  This is the image I chose for the monthly challenge here:  Our theme this month is: All creatures big and small.  I am inviting you to come play along with us at the challenge blog.

My image was colored with copics and the die cut is from spellbinders.  I decided to use the center cut card and the dragon fly die cut that I have. The sentiment is a die cut that came with the dragon fly, and perfect for this image.

I hope you will all come play along with us at Ching-Chou Kuik challenge this month.  Till then have a wonderful day and Happy Crafting all!

The Poppy

Good Evening to you all.  Today my post is for the the Outlawz Progressive Challenge.  The digi stamp is from Anne Fenton and I love it.  I colored it with copics and then just went over the outline that Anne put on there to make it a bit more bold.  I used a white card base and layered it with black red and white.  I used a cuddlebug embossing folder of hexagons to do the embossing.  I put the satin red ribbon around it an then tied the bow.  I love the simplicity of this card.  I hope you will come down and play along at the Outlawz as they have a 7 day variety of challenges for you to try.  The addy is here: So you have no excuse but to go check them out and become a member as well so you can play too.  They have great inspiration in all there challenges.  So I bid you a great day and a better evening and Happy Crafting to you all.  TAG PF07

Rainy Day Fun

Hey all you great stampers out there!!
      I am posting this little cutie today and she is from Imagine That by Kris.  I love how she turned out.  What a fun image for spring.  I made this one to send to my grand daughter.  The name of the set is Rainy Day Fun.  You can get her here:  She is part of a set with some sentiments and also a boy figure as well.

      Kris has awesome sets you can get and she also makes digital papers that you can print as many times as you need them.  The nice thing about digital papers is if your looking for a particular paper and you know you have it you can just go print as much as you like.  No running to the store to find something.   I use digital paper a lot and have a lot of them as well.

     I colored her with copics and the background paper is from Recollections.  I used some ribbons as accents and the 4 gem flowers   Wanted to keep it pretty simple.  I hope you like this cute card.  And I hope you will go check out the store at Imagine That by Kris. 

    So till next time happy crafting!

Inspirational Robin

Hi everyone.  I wanted to post this beautiful image by Imagine That by Kris Images.

      I love the image as it reminds me of spring and the verse is perfect.  You can get this image and many more from the store at Imagine That here:  If you have not been to her store yet I really urge you to go as she has some fantastic images there.  Fathers day is coming and she has some sweet images for that and you get the line drawing the precolored drawing and the sentiments all foe one low price.  In some of the sets you will even find some papers as well.  She does have some sets of just papers and they are all great papers.  I like digital papers because if I need something I can usually find it in my digital paper collection and don't have to run to the store to get more paper.  Believe me I have tons of paper but somehow sometimes Not the right piece for the card I am working on so the digital ones really help me in so many ways.   

     I colored my image with copics (of course is there anything else?)  I mounted it to a red card base with a black under layer that I punched the border with a fiskars punch for some bling   I also added a double loop bow to it as well.  The black gems just seemed like they belonged there and also the black gems in the center of the flowers.  All in all a pretty plain card but I think pretty elegant as well.

      I do hope you will come down and join us at our progressive monthly challenge at Imagine That by Kris and the address for that is here:  For all that don't know what a progressive challenge is I will explain.  You normally buy the image the first month then as long as you use that image to enter into that challenge for that month you will receive the next month image free.  It is a good way to build your digital image collection.  That is how I got started with the digital images and have so many now.  So come on down and try it out,  I bet you will be surprised at how much you like it. 

     So till next time I hope you will leave me a comment on what you think and Happy Crafting to you all.

Antionette Dollie

     Good day to you all!  Today is my day to post the inspirational card for you.  She is called Antoinette Dollie and you can get her at the Esty shop for Ching-Chou Kuik Stamps here:  There are a lot of  new images in the shop so you should pop in and see for yourself. 

     I colored Antionette with copics and then I did the background with pan pastels.  I like the way it looks with the back ground done.  I made some flowers from a couple of Fiskar punches and put some gems in the centers.  The leaves are a spellbinder die cut and the gems are from want to scrap.  I embossed the pink background with a cuttlebug embossing folder.  The base card is just a white card stock.  The last thing I added was a gold butterfly! 

     I hope that you will come play along with us at Ching_Chou Kuik Stamps blog here: Our monthly theme is "Lovely Lace" for this month and I would invite you to play along with us.

     So for now I will say Happy Crafting and see you next week.

Carnation Fairy

Hey everyone!!

      How is everyone today?  Well I hope.  My project today is from Ching-Chou Kuik and her name is Carnation Fairy.  She is so beautiful, I love the way she turned out.  I colored her with Copics and added a glitter pen on her wings to make them stand out. I  used  pan pastels for the back ground.  I only do light colors as I am a bit intimated by dark colors yet.   I used the image to make a mixed media project instead of a card.

     I covered the canvas with gesso and then cut the canvas in a star configuration  rolling it and using hot glue to hold it down.  I then used some red and pink embossing powder to add some color and the metal flower for bling.  I used light green gems too.  I added some pink bling around the image for bling as well.  The background paper is by reflections and a very pretty plaid.  I do hope you like my project and will leave me some love.  I do enjoy doing mixed media and have the thank the lady on Facebook for this idea. 

You can find this image here at the Ching-Chou Kuik Esty store here:  And I do hope you will come play in the Monthly Challenge with the theme of "Lovely Lace"here:

I do hope you will leave me some love for my beautiful project.

Happy Crafting all!
