Sweet Little One

Good Tuesday Morning to you all.  Tuesday means The challenge at "Tuesday Throwdown"  So for today for my DT card for Tuesday Throwdown is this Sweet little one from Robyns Fetish.  This little one was a joy to color.  Why not stop down at Robyn's Fetish here: and see what wonderful stamps she has to offer. 
I colored this little girl with Copics and mounted her on a piece of digital paper.  The border punches are new from Martha Stewart.  The flowers are Petaloo and the roses are some I found at a garage sale.  I cut the stems off so I could use them on here.   The leaves are a stampin-up die that I have and I use it a lot.  It is all mounted on a piece of dark pink card stock and glitter added to the flowers and the image for bling.  I hope you will come down to Tuesday Throwdown and join the fun in this Sweet little Ones Challenge here is the address: so no excuses not to come play. We have some great prizes so come visit up.  Happy Crafting.

Good afternoon all you crafters.  Today well ok I have posted already today but for my next act.  LOL  I won this beautiful image from Rick St. Dennis in a challenge on his facebook page Here : at the Red, White and Blue challenge.  I love the way she turned out.  I have had her colored for a while but finally got around to making a card.  I am very pleased how she turned out.  She was colored with copics and mounted on designer paper from Reflections and the die cut is a spellbinders die.  I wanted to keep it pretty simple so only added the few gems for bling.  I am going to enter this into the anything goes challenge at Sparkle and Glitter Challenge for this month here:  I love Rick's images they are very unique and so pretty.  I hope you will come down and play along with us.  Happy Crafting to you all. 
I would also like to enter this into the challenge anything goes at The Purple Haze here:  So come on down and see what they have to offer for this challenge.  Happy Crafting to you all.

Humphrey's Apples

Good morning to you all. 
     This morning I am posting as a new Design Team member  for Imagine That by Kris.  I was so excited to be asked to join her team.  She has fantastic images and she sells them in sets.  I would encourage everyone to go check them out here is the web address for the site:  This month Kris is calling the challenge "JUMP BACK IN CHALLENGE".  We do a progressive challenge each month and for this month only you can use any Imagine That image that you have,  you don't have to have the ones we use for this months challenge.  But you want to go check it out anyway and buy this one.  Humphrey is a sweet little squirrel.  She has several sets with Humphrey and you get colored images and line drawings and some sentiments,  How cool is that?  I love her images they are just so much fun to color and are adorable.  I do occasionally use the colored image if I am in a hurry and need a card with that theme quickly but most of the time I color all my images.  You see I am addicted to coloring.  I do hope you will come and play along with us this month.  Remember you can use any image you want from Imagine That. If you don't have an image then head on over to the store and buy one or more you won't be sorry.  Hope to see you all there!!  Happy Crafting all!!!

My Newspaper girl

Hey everyone.  My image today is a sweet image from Lacy Sunshine.  She is just a pretty little girl and reminds me of my granddaughter with her hair over her eye.  I colored her with my copics and put this window around her that is a negative cut out from another image just like this one only in different colors.  I inked the top cut out with Navy blue but it sure doesn't look like Navy blue to me.  The two flourishes are some I got at ACMoore in the dollar bin.  I am going to enter this into the challenge at Lacy Sunshine Challenge blog this week with the theme of"Include a window".  You can find that challenge here:  Why not stop by and play along.  She has some fantastic images in her store as well so you can check her out after you check out the Challenge.  So happy crafting to you all and hope you all come play along.

The Goddess of Moonligh on Evening Fog

Hello all you wonderful peeps.  Today I am posting this wonderful image by Rick St. Dennis.  You can see all his wonderful talent here:   I colored her with my copics and have decided I still need more colors.  Yes they are addicting for sure.  Any way the image is cut out on a die cut from spellbinders and mounted on a bright yellow card.  I thought it needed a bit more so I added the bow (made it with a bow maker my hubby made for me)  It works great too.  Then I added the 3 flower gems as well.  I would like to enter this image into the anything goes challenge at Through The Craft Room Door.  Here:  Come on down and play along it is fun and they have some great prizes.  Happy Crafting all.

Aloha from Hawaii

     Well welcome to my little corner of the world.  I have been pretty busy in my craft room lately.  This is one of the cards that I have done.  It is called Aloha girl.  I do believe she is so beautiful.  I would love to go to Hawaii someday but not sure if that will ever happen. But it is on my bucket list anyway. 

     This beauty is from Imagine That by Kris.  Here is her site address:  I sure hope you will pop over and check out her images they are just so adorable.  She does hers in sets.  You get line drawings and colored images and sentiments with all.  Some sets she even includes digi papers to use.  How cool is that.  I love digi papers cause I don't have to store them anywhere but on here.  My craft room is so full and not a lot of room for storage so digi papers are great.  Plus you never run out of the ones you love.  I colored her with my copics and cut the background doily with my new Martha Stewart punch.  I inked the edges to give it some definition and added the bling that I bought at the scrapbook expo this year.  The sentiments are some of the ones you get with the set.  I sure hope you like my pretty little Hula girl.  If you do please leave me some love to let me know you were here and if your not a follower I hope you will become one and leave me your addy and I will come follow you as well. 
     Happy Crafting to you all.

Butterfly Thank you

Hey everyone I sure hope your having a great day.  It is a beautiful sunny day in South Florida, and a very hot one as well.  Thank goodness for AC or I would be looking for a pool somewhere.
On to my card,  it is a simple black and white card I made for a class that I did.  I used a sketch I found on pinterest as a guide.  It is all white paper and I stamped the thank you before I embossed it with the dotted swiss embossing folder.  The bottom of the small piece I embossed with a border embossing folder of dotted swiss.  I added the ribbon to add some interest to it.  The stamps are both from Stampin-up given to me by a great friend. Simple but elegant card.  I am very pleased on how it turned out.  I hope you like it as well.  Happy Crafting all.

A Note Card

Good morning to all you crafters.  Today is a day for my "Note" card.  This is one I will be doing with my class for the week of Aug 21 st.  It is pretty simple and easy to do.  I like it but to be honest I think it is a bit dull looking.  Maybe different papers would have helped but it looked ok when I did it.  Have you ever had that happen to you, make a card and like it when you make it then look at it the next day an say what was I thinking?  Well it has finally happened to me.  LOL  I like the design and will try it in different colors someday.  Who knows maybe I will like it then.  Well I can be off a day once in a while too I guess.  Well there it is in a nut shell folks we all make mistakes now an then and I am not afraid to admit it.  Have a great day!!

My pretty Ladybug

Good morning to you all!!  I am posting this adorable ladybug for all today.  I love these little bugs (hence my blog name!  LOL)  But really I do like them.  This is one from a set that I had from Imagine That by Kris.  I just think they are the cutest bugs around.  The paper behind the bug is a digital paper that I printed an had not used yet.  The sentiment is from the set as when you buy the images from Imagine That you get the sentiments too and that is really helpful for me as I don't have a lot of regular stamps ( they take up a lot of room in my small craft area so I only have a few)  I used bakers twine on the card as well as two new embellishments that I got at the expo.  If your like me or even if your not and like my little ladybug here is the address for Imagine That so you can go buy this set.  I do hope you will go check out the store.  Kris also has a progressive challenge each month.  If you buy the stamp that is the challenge stamp and use it for the challenge you get the next month free and will continue to get the month free as long as you play and use the stamp that you get free.  It is a wonderful way to get new digi stamps and Kris is very talented and has wonderful digi's to work with.  There are times when she includes digi papers as well and has just some digi papers to buy.  I like to get digi papers cause I can always print what I need.  I hope to see some of you over at the Challenge at Imagine that.  Happy Crafting to you all.

Elephant Birthday

Well Hello all you crafter's out there in the craft world.  I hope your having a craft-tastic day... 

Today I am posting my sweet little elephant from Imagine That by Kris here:  She has the most adorable images to use.  This one is great for a child's birthday party.  It comes with a line drawing of all the different images in the set and also a color image of each of the images in the set.  There are sentiments with this one as well.  I have used a colored image a couple of time but mostly I use the line drawing and color it.  I do love to color.  I cut the corners to be round and the papers behind the image as well.  I colored this little guy with my copics pens.  I added the stars for bling and put the sentiment on the side so as not to cover the image.  This is a smaller card then I normally do but I am going to make a set of note cards this size and this will be the first of the set.  They will all be birthday cards so  one of the  images that will be in the set will also be on the top of the box.  I hope you will jump over to Imagine that by Kris and pic up some sets that she has to offer.  They are all sets and you even get papers with some of the sets so how cool is that?  Well happy crafting and I hope you will become a follower if your not already and leave me some love.

Sweet Magnolia

Good morning to you all.  Today I have am posting a card for a challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge here:  I colored her with copics and mounted her onto a card that was cut from the largest Grand  Nestabilities die cut.  Then I added the strip on the side which I got at Hobby Lobby and the flower is cut from a fiskars punch.  I love to color these images and want each and everyone of them. I tried to keep this one simple as it was to be sent in the mail.  I have quite a few now and they make people smile when they get a card with these images on them.  Well this is it for me for today I have a class to teach so need to get set up.  Happy Crafting to you all. 


Hey everyone.  Today I am just posting a pic of my card that I will be doing with my class this week.  I bought this embossing folder a while ago but couldn't find the correct image to go with it.  But when I put the butterfly on it I knew I found it.  I love the  way it looks.  It is a large butterfly but that is ok I still like it.  The smaller butterfly I have is to small so it was this or some other image and I like this die cut.  I took the cut out part of his wing to use at the top for corners.  I know my girls will love it.  I have a new girl starting this week and she is really new to card making so decided to do some simple but elegant cards.  I hope you like this one and will leave me some love.  Happy Crafting!!

     Hi everyone hope your day is a beautiful one.  It is hot here in sunny South Florida but better hot then freezing cold.
     Today I am posting for Tuesday Throwdown challenge
here:  It is all about our furry friends.  I chose this adorable dog named Konas from Oak Pond here:  They have some really adorable images to play with so I hope you will all go to see what is there.  I colored my image with copics and rounded the edges.  I then mounted it onto some designer paper that I found in my scrap pile.  It was the perfect fit for this card, and don't you just love it when that happens.  I used some dark brown ribbon on the side and the sentiment is one that I got on a card from Joanne's for $1.00 and the name was on another part of it and is gone so I have no idea what company it is from.  I hope you like my little doggie.  I am not all that good with coloring animals and it is a real challenge for me but I got thro it and printed him several more times to practice with.
     I hope you will come down to the challenge at Tuesday Throwdown this week and play along.  We do offer some great prizes for your creations if you win.   Playing is so much fun and you meet others who love to do the same.  Each team member does a card to inspire you and they are all unique to each team member so you get lots of inspiration to do your own card.  Hope to see you there.  Happy  Crafting and good luck.
