Busy, busy, busy!

Busy, busy, busy!  I’m trying to get some coloring in every day for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge AND take a Skin and Hair class from Kit and Clowder.  I’m enjoying the class so much and learning so much…I signed up for two more classes.   LOL! 

I’m also taking their monthly classes for markers and pencils….What was I thinking!!!!!  LOL!

I hope to share a few more photos…if I can find the time to create my blog post! 

Having fun coloring and learning how to take my coloring to the next level!

Welcome Baby!


A co-worker and his wife welcomed a new baby boy a couple of weeks ago.  What better image to use on a card than Uptown Girl Bailey Has A Baby.  This is such a cute image! 


The coloring was done with my Copics.  After coloring her dress, I decided that it needed a little something, so I added some white dots with my white gel pen. 


I used my Double Stitched Rectangle die from My Favorite Things to cut out the image.  I had this cute little baby boy designer paper, and cut out a rectangle using the Stitched Rectangle die, also from My Favorite Things


My sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp, Handwritten Borders.  I just love these sentiments.


And yes, I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops.  This time, I used the Navy Blue Crystal Drops

A celebration with wine anyone???  Winobella is the perfect image for this card.  The image and matching die are available from Stamping Bella.  I love how this image can be used to make not only birthday cards, but also congratulation cards.  A little wine celebration!


I used my Copics to color this image, once again using the color map by Elaine Hughes and available on the Stamping Bella web site after purchasing the image.


After coloring the image, I wanted to keep the card kind of simple.  I added some designer paper and then used some plain card stock to add some simple design.  I used the Wonky Stitched Square die from My Favorite Things to add some interest behind my image.


The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp, Birthday Messages.  I was looking for a birthday greeting that runs vertical, but I haven’t been able to find one.  Sometimes, you just want your message to be vertical…oh well, someday I’ll find one.  To finish my card, I added some Duck Egg Nuvo Crystal Drops to the card.

And another 30 Day Coloring Challenge


Just a quick post today…

Wow, another 30 day coloring challenge…Yikes!  I’m not ready for this one, but I’m going to give it a try. 

I recently signed up for some coloring classes from Kit and Clowder and this image was one that we worked on for colored pencils.  I started the coloring last night and finished up tonight.

My First Guest Designer!


My first ever Guest Designer!


I have always enjoyed making cards for my great nieces and nephews.  I was so pleasantly surprised last week to be the receiver of this beautiful had made card by my great niece, Naomi.  Her mother has told me that she enjoys receiving her hand made cards and that she had made everyone in their family a Valentine’s card, and this card for me!  I was thrilled to receive it.


To express my gratitude to her, I have created a special “card kit” for her.  I packed a special box of card bases and envelopes, some designer paper, some images for her to color, and some embellishments to add to her cards.  I also sent her an “artist” kit with pencils, crayons and markers. 


I can’t wait to see her next creation!  I’m still smiling every time I look at this special handmade Valentine I received! 

Thanks for stopping by!
