Autism Awareness

Good morning.  I am posting today for Tuesday Throwdown Challenger here: http://www.tuesdaythrowdown.blogspot.com/ for the challenge Awareness.  My image is from Bugaboo  and you can find him here: http://www.bugaboostamps.com/.  I colored him with copics and used a new die cut for the card that a friend loaned me.  I love the way it looks.  I will add the inside at the bottom I put the hearts on as bling but didn't want to take away from the theme of the challenge.  Autism is a very real problem and I do know one family that has a beautiful little (well not so little anymore) girl that has it and she is just the sweetest person you ever want to meet.  I do hope you will come down and play along with this theme this week.  Here is the inside of my card.
Happy Crafting all and come on down and play!!!!

Good Morning to you all.  I say that for two reasons first of all it is 2:21 am and I can't sleep so thought I would work on posting some of my things for my challenges.  And today is my post for the Just Inspirational Challengeand it posts early in the am.   I am super excited to be on this team they are all great people.

Turkey girl

Hi everyone.  Today I am posting this sweet card with the image by EastWind.  She was a freebie for the progressive challenge they do on Facebook.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheEastWind/.  I colored her with copics and cut out the image with spellbinders oval die.  I inked the outside of the cut before I took it out of the die so it leaves the edges clean.  The sentiment is from a set from Imagine That by Kris.  The background paper is a piece of wall paper that I had in my stash.  The gems are from my stash as well.  I wanted to keep this one CAS to showcase the image.  Hope you like my card and will leave me some love.  Happy crafting all....

Wedding card



Hi everyone.  I just wanted to post the card that I made for my grandson's wedding.  It was fun to make and I sure hope he loves it as much as I do.  The outside is Velum that is patterned with small flowers and leaves.  The inside is the image that I got from Imagine That by Kris.  I love this image for them.  The couple has been together for along time and are perfect for each other.  I fastened it with just a small piece of ribbon.  I didn't want to use glue because it would have shown.  The brides colors are purple and I used  that color on the card.  I hope you like this one.  Happy Crafting to you all.

Texting Teen!

Wow I can't believe it is the second week of October already.  Time sure is flying by and that scares me, to much to do no time to do it in.  I've been so busy making cards it seems like the days just fly.  Well no matter we still have to do what we have to do.  So without fuller ado.  Today I am posting for Just Inspirational Challenges again.  This week our theme is "Teenagers"  I chose this image from Kenny K. http://www.kennykdownloads.com/.  They has some awesome images to choose from, and I suggest that you go check them out when your done here.  I do hope you will stay long enough to browse a bit and leave me some love.   The Image was colored with copics and cut with my oval spellbinders die.  I almost always ink my image before I remove it from the die so you can see the outside is a bit different from the inked area.  I love the look it gives.  I also embossed this one before I took it out.  The background paper is from my stash an so old I have no clue where I got it.  The gems are from Want to Scrap and I got them at the convention this past summer.  The sentiment is from another set of digi's that I got and again been to long to tell you where it is from.  It was before I started to put my things in folders with names on them.  I know I'm bad but I do put things in folders now so I know where they come from.  I do hope you will all come down and play along with us this week.  We have some great prizes for the winners.  So Happy Crafting to you all and will see you soon.

Happy Halloween

I cut it out with a spellbinders die and I inked the edges to give it a spooky look.  The black gems are from my stash..  The background paper is from a garage sale.  The little sucker gem is from the same garage sale.  The sentiment is from the computer.  I hope you like my card.  And Happy Early Halloween to you all.

Merry Cupcake Christmas

Hi everyone.  I am getting started on my Christmas cards and wanted to post one for you all to see.  It is a bit different but a fun one.  My image is from Imagine That by Kris and you can get this set here:  http://imaginethatdigistamp.blogspot.com/  I love this image it is so much fun.  I did one in red and one in blues.  I will post that at another time.  My image is colored with copics and I mounted it on dark green and the base is dark green as well however it looks black in the photo.  I used a viva pen for my snow and love how it turned out.  I love Kris's sets as she gives the sentiments a couple of different ones with each set of digi's.  This is the uncolored one but you get a colored version as well.  The inside just has Merry Christmas on it and that is part of the set as well.  Why not hop over to Imagine That and pic up a set or two you sure won't be sorry.  She also has a progressive challenge each month and this is "Jump back in" month and you can use any image that you have from her to get back into the challenges.  Then next month you will get the new image free to play along.  You only have 4 days left of this months challenge so hurry over and get yourself an image or check the Imagine that facebook page for a freebie to use.  Hope to see you all next month in the challenge.  So enough for now have a great day and Happy Crafting.

Opposites Attract

Hey everyone..  How is everyone today?  My sweet little image here is from Lacy Sunshine.  Our challenge from Tuesday Throwdown this week is Opposites Attract so to take the color wheel and go opposite sides and choose a color.  I choose the RED/GREEN opposites.  I like this image as I had the green apples and one red one.  My background paper is a piece that I got from a friend.  The base card is red and the green ribbon is some I bought at Joanne's.  I cut the image with a spellbinders die cut.  I colored this sweet image with my copics.  The two flourishes are cut from my cricut.  I hope you will make a card and come on down to the challenge at Tuesday Throwdown here: http://www.tuesdaythrowdown.blogspot.com/ and play along.  You will get lots of inspiration on the site as to what you can do to make a card.  A color wheel is available on line if you need to look at one.  Hope to see you all there!!  Happy Crafting.

Lucky Turkey

     Hey everyone.  Today is a Lucky Turkey day....  Now where can you find a turkey that is smiling?  Well if you go over to Imagine That by Kris here: http://imaginethatdigistamp.blogspot.com/ you will find this smiling turkey.  What a cutie he is.  I am not sure he will be so lucky come Thanksgiving but he sure is cute.  I colored him up with copics and he is on a sheet of designer paper that I bought at a garage sale. The ribbon is from a blog hop that I won and the gems and stars are from the expo this year.  The Sentiment is from one of the sets from Imagine That. I punched the corner with a fiskars punch and it is one of my favorite corner punches.  I hope you will go check out Imagine That by Kris as she has some fun and wonderful digi's.

Sweet Puppy

Hi all you sweet peeps.  Today or I guess I should say tonite I am posting a card I did for Imagine That by Kris.  This is a freebie that she gave out and you can get it on Facebook I believe.  You can also use this to enter into our monthly progressive challenges.  This month is it "Jump back in month" and that means you can use any image that you have from Imagine that or any freebie as well.  I think this is a really cute dog, I don't feel that I am that good with animals but I am practicing and this is one of them.  LOL  Anyway I colored him or her which ever you want with copics and just added the stitching around all of it.  The background paper is some I bought at a garage sale a while ago.  It had a skunk on the end so that had to come off.  It is just a very plain an simple card which for me is rare.  Hope you like it and please come on down to Imagine that and play along.  The address is here:  http://imaginethatdigistamp.blogspot.com/ so come visit you will get lots of inspiration from the design team.  Happy crafting all!!!!!

Sunflower Humphery

Good morning to you all.  My post today is a digi that is by Kris at Imagine That.  You can find the newest sets on her site at: http://imaginethatdigistamp.blogspot.com/.  She has at least 3or 4 new sets this month.  Her daughter named this cute squirrel.  I think he is just adorable.  I colored him with copics and mounted him on some designer paper that I bought at a garage sale.  The banner is one that comes with one of the sets.    I am not sure if it is this one or not but it is from one of the 4 that she has.  The butterflies and the leaves are a stampin-up dit cut that I use a great deal.  What is great about Kris's sets is she always puts in sentiment with her digi's.  You get color sets and line drawings for you to color as you wish, plus the sentiments and sometimes she even includes papers for you to use.  She has beautiful digital papers too.  That will be what I get next, I love digi papers cause you can print them any time you need them.  Well I hope you like my sweet squirrel,  I know I do.  And I have the perfect person to send it to.  Happy Crafting all!!

Butterflies and Bows

     Good morning to you all..  It is a great day in sunny S. Florida.  I love living here.
     Today is my day to post for Tuesday Throwdown Cahllenge. Here is the address for the challenge for Tuesday Throwdown.: http://www.tuesdaythrowdown.blogspot.com/   Butterflies and Bows is the challenge.  So I have a variety of butterflies here on my card.  The large one is from Martha Stewart punch and the smaller ones are a die cut from Stampin-up.  I love this die cut and use it a great deal.  The image is from DeeDee Anderson and her shop is here: https://shop.deedeesdigis.com/.  She has some amazing images and you should really take a moment after your done on my site to pop over and check hers out.
     I colored this image with copics and am so pleased as to how it turned out.  I do love flowers and love to color them. (I added the second image the close up so you could see it better.)  I added the butterfly here so it would pop out from the rest.  The sentiment is from the internet and I can't remember who it is by, sorry about that.  I sure hope you will come down and play along with us this week at Tuesday Throwdown and see if you can win some prizes.  All the DT members have a card for your inspiration and this is one of them for you to use as your inspiration.  The ladies on the team are all very talented and unique in their own way, so you will get plenty of different ideas for a card to play along with us.  I really hope to see you crafters there.  Have a wonderful day and I hope you will leave me some love.  I appreciate it and read each and every one.
HAPPY CRAFTING ALL!

Charleston

     Good morning all.
     Today I am posting this image by Rick St. Dennis for the anything goes challenge at  "Through the Craft Room Door challenge.  Here: http://ttcrd.blogspot.com/ I won this image in a challenge on the Rick St. Dennis Facebook page of Red,White and Blue challenge.  I suggest everyone who likes this type of image to go check out his facebook page and also his etsy store here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/RickStdennis?page=1.  He has wonderful images of all kinds. 
     I colored my image with copics and mounted her onto a die cut from spellbinders.  I love this die cut and use it often.  The only bling I added were the gems.  I wanted her to be the focal point of the card.  The envelope was made with designer paper that I bought at a garage sale so I have no idea who it is by but it is beautiful paper.  I hope you will all come down to the challenge an play along and visit Ricks store and purchase some of his wonderful stamps. 

     Happy Crafting all!!
