In My thoughts

Today I am posting for Imagine that for the Monthly Progressive Challenge.  Our beautiful peacock is just a ball to color.  I used copics to color it and wow love it.  My best friends mother passed away so I decided this would make a great sympathy card.  I went CAS with it as I think it is better suited to a sympathy card.  I added just a ribbon and two small flowers to the sentiment.

Come on down and play along with us at Imagine that by Kris here:  You can find this image and so many more wonderful images at the store and she does sell worldwide even with the new VAT law over seas.  She will email you  your images so go check out the wonderful new images she has in the store.  Here is the link to find all the wonderful images Kris has drawn, she is a fantastic artist.

Happy Crafting to you all.

Catch That Ball

Hi everyone I just wanted to show you two of the latest images at Imagine That by Kris.  My grandson and granddaughter both love baseball and these are so appropriate for them.  So I made these to give to them as a surprise.  My grand daughter loves hers and so does Ben my grandson.  They display my cards to them on their dressers.  I colored them both with copics and used the Baseball that is included in the set as the embellishment.  I put an R on the ball in the little girls card because my Grand daughters name is Reese.  She loves pink so I had to make hers pink and my grandson's last team colors were red and white so thatis what he got.  The alphabet images are also from Kris and you can find those and a lot of others at the store here:

Kris is a fantastic artist and sells her images worldwide even with the VAT law over seas.  You can get all the details at the store on how to buy your images.  I know you will love them as I do.  So head on over and take a peak.  She has a progressive challenge and a Any image of hers challenge each month.  So go check it out what are you waiting for?  Ok enough from me for today go have a happy fun crafting day.

Inspirational Post by Linda "Believe"

Good morning to you all.  Today is my day for the inspirational post for Ching-Chou Kuik Stamps.  I have chosen to do the image called "Believe"  she is beautiful but then all the images from CCK are beautiful.  It is so hard to choose what to use.
I used a yellow card stock for the base and found this gorgeous, greenish yellow glitter paper to mount the image on.  I colored the image with copics and cut it out with a spellbinders die cut.  The back ground is pan pastels and I have a friend on Facebook that is helping me learn to do the backgrounds so this isn't perfect but I am getting better each time.  I added the roses and they are some left from Crafty City.  I put 4 pearls on the image at the two sides and top and bottom.  The gold pieces are cut with my cricut from gold foil paper.  I do hope you like my card.  You can find the image here at the Etsy Store:  I do hope you will go take a look at the store to see the beautiful images she draws, she is very talented.  We also have a Facebook group if you want to play along there as well.  The facebook group is here: and we have the monthly challenge at Ching-Chou Kuik as well  here:  So that is all for me for today see you again next Thursday.

Happy Crafting.

Miss Fix it

Good morning to you all.  Today is my post for Tuesday Throwdown Challenge this week with a theme of Metal.
My miss fix it is from Sassy Studios and you can get her here:  As I said our theme this week is Metal.  My metal on my card is aluminum foil that I put thro the cuddlebug with a folder for the background.  I then cut out some gears to go with her as she is Miss Fix it.  I colored her with copics and rounded the edges of the image and inked the edgers to go with the gears.  The sentiment is mine and printed on the computer.  It actually was an after thought.  I had the card all photographed and ready to put on here when the thought popped into my head for the sentiment so back to the computer I went.  Here is the result.  I really like how she turned out and hope you do as well.  And I hope you will come down and play along with us this week at Tuesday Throwdown Challenge "Use Metal"  here is a link for you to get to our challenge site.  So no excuses go get some metal and play along.  I can't wait to see what you all come up with.  See you there!!  Happy Crafting.

Spring Banquet

     Good morning to you all.  My post today is called Spring Banquet and is from Ching-Chou Kuik. 
      I urge you to go check out her fantastic images.  They are so beautiful and wonderful to color.  I colored this one with copics and mounted her on black to make her stand out.  The flowers at the bottom and top are in the same color as the card base.  They are a new die cut that I got from sizzix and the flourish is from my stock.  When I need things like this I cut lots of them so next time I don't have to stop to cut one.  The gems in the flowers are from Want to Scrap.

      This card will be for the monthly Challenge here:  Come on down and play along to win some wonderful images from Ching-Chou Kuik. The theme is something Torn to pieces in which you have to have something torn on your card.  Mine is the florish at the top I had to tear it off to make it shorter as it was way to long.

Baseball Nicholas

      Well good morning to you all.
      Today I am posting for my DT position at Just Inspirational Challenges.  Our theme this week is "Sports"  My little baseball player was colored with Copics.
      I choose this image from Inky Impressions and you can find this image here:  They have a lot of fun images like this one.  I have made this card for my grand son who loves baseball.  The background paper I made on the computer with an image I found on the internet.  I didn't have any background paper that I liked to go with this so I made this one.  The sentiment is one I hand wrote as he is a Home Run Hitter.  I just added the brads for bling but that is all I wanted on it so the image is the main focal point.

I hope you will all come down to Just Inspirational Challenges here to play   We have some super prizes for you to win so come on down and play along with us.

Happy Crafting

The Monster Mash

Wow This card reminds me of a old song from when I was a kid.  The Monster Mash.  I had to add the music paper because of the song. I added some moving eyes to the monsters as well to have some fun with the images.  I just think they are so adorable.   These images are from My Grafico here:  I colored these cuties with my copics and added the stripes to the main image with glitter pens.  You really can't see the glitter in the photo but it shows in real life.  The sentiment is from the set of Monsters.  I backed it with black to make it show up. The background paper is from my stash and no cover so no idea who it is by.  This card is for Tuesday Throwdown Challenge called Monster Mash.  Here  is the address for the challenge  I hope you will go into your stash to find a cute monster and play along with us. 

Happy Crafting to you all.

Stamp of the Month for Progressive Challenge Imagine That

    This fun image is so adorable.  It is from Imagine That Progressive Challenge.  I am not sure that everyone knows what a progressive challenge is so I want explain it for those who don't and I hope the ones that do will bare with me.  You buy the first image from Kris then when you play in the challenge you use that image and then the following month you next the next image free.  And as long as you play with the free image each month you will get the following image free.
     Ok now for my card.  I colored the image with copics and had a ball.  What adorable kittens,  I then mounted them on to  a piece of paper I think is recollections Valentine paper.  I punched each corner with a corner punch from fiskars and love this punch.  I pop dotted the image for demention and the sentiment as well.  When you get this image you get a line drawing and colored images as well as some different sentiments.  This is one of the sentiments in the kit.  Sometimes Kris will add papers as well although not all the time.  The cute sparkly hearts are stickers from the local dollar store.  I do get a lot of my stickers there.  I buy lots of them for my grand daughter who loves stickers.

Happy Valentines Day

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY TO YOU ALL!!!  This is a Valentines that I made with an image from Imagine That by Kris.  I just love this mouse.  She also has a boy Mouse which I have not gotten to make as of yet.  But I will. I colored her with copics and fussy cut her so the papes would show behind her.  I used some papers from my stash and I think they maybe Recollections from Michael's from last year.  I used a paper doily for the card as well.  The strip that looks like rick rack is from a package of lots of cut outs from Hobby Lobby.  I punched the pink strip with a Fiskars border punch which is my favorite punch and added the rick rack.  The heart is a sticker I bought at the dollar store.  I wrote the sentiment on the balloons.  The inside is done as well.  Here is a shot of that and it has another heart of it from the dollar store. 
I hope you like my Valentines card.  Now my biggest thing is which grand child gets this one.  LOL  Have a great day you all.

In honor of Imagine That! Digis by Kris' 2nd Anniversary, we invite you all to a special "Blog Train of Freebies"!!  Kris has "hopped on board" with Pixel Scrapper this month and made up 10 mini-kits that are perfect for digi-scrapping, or printing and using for cards & other paper crafts in a beautiful "Winter Arabesque" theme.  Hop on board to collect them all and be inspired by our Design Team and if you are a member at Pixel Scrapper (it's free!) you can grab all of their mini kits as well :)

All you have to do is hop on the train at our challenge blog and go from blog to blog picking up (downloading) the mini kits - that's it!   Please leave each of the Design team some love to let them know you were there. 

If you started here you need to go back to the beginning to get all the mini Kits but if you came from Edwina's blog then your on the right track.  I used the Bunting/Lace/Borders Kit on my cards  You can get your kit by clicking on the download button and saving to you your computer.


Here is one of my cards using the images from the kits. The mouse is a new image from Kris and I decided that with Valentines day coming I would make a card and incorporate the kit with the new image.  My background paper is from my stash but I think you can get digital valentine paper from Kris as well.  The banner and the flower are from two different kits.  The sentiment is from the Mouse kit.  I think he is just so adorable I had to use him right away.  I sure hope you like him.
I also made one using some of the other embellishments in the other kits as well and here is one of them.  My butterfly is dementional with pop ups and two butterflies a smaller one on top.  I added glitter to the butterfly as well  This one is the frame kit and I cut the frame out and then cut the card front to match and I put the sentiment inside.  I love the way this one turned out.  I didn't want to take away from the kit so I left this one fairly plain. 
These kits are very versatile and can be used in Scrapbooking as well as card making.  We would love to see what you make with your kits once you have them so if you want you can upload them from most of the blogs here in the Link up

From here you need to go to Silvi's blog here:  If you do all the blogs you should have 10 kits to use in your scrapbooking or however you choose to use them.  Enjoy them they are fun.

  Here is the list for the hop if you get lost you can find your way from here.

Red Panda

     Good morning to each and everyone of you.  It is a glorious day here in Sunny Florida.
     My post for today is  Red Panda. She is drawn by Ching-Chou Kuik and her shop is here:  
This link will take you directly to this image then from there you can explore the rest of the images.  They are all so beautiful and I am so lucky to be on her design team.  I love to color and love her images so take a few minutes when your done here and go check out her store you won't be sorry. 
      She is a gorgeous image to color.  I have to admit though the background took me longer to do then coloring the actual image.  As you can probably figure out that backgrounds are new to me.  I have a friend that is helping me and it is helping but to do the actual thing with out someone leaning over my shoulder is harder then it looks.  I do however love the  way she turned out.  I colored her with copics and the added her to the black matting and then to the craft paper I added a ribbon on the diagonal for some interest.  The whole thing is mounted on a dark brown card stock.  I did pop the image up with foam dots.  I added the flowers from petaloo and some flourishes from a spellbinders die.
      I hope you like my card as much as I do and will leave me some love.  Thanks so much for coming to view my blog.  I would love it if you all would become followers of mine.  I do read each and every comment that you all make.  I hope you will all have a fun-tastic day!!

Hi Everyone I am posting my Steampunk girl today.  I won her on facebook with Lacy Sunshine.  Isn't she just the most adorable Steampunk image that you have seen in along time.  She was fun to color as well.  I did color her with my copics and cut her out with a new circle die cut that I also won.  Guess I have gotten pretty lucky lately.  The gears were cut from holographic paper and the die cut is spellbinder.  I didn't add any other embellishments to this card cause i wanted to keep it simple. I inked red around the outside of the circle to add some color. 

I am entering this into a steampunk challenge at Come and get it Challenges here
And into the Through the Craft room door anything goes Challenge here:
Happy Crafting all.
