Too cute

Hi everyone, sorry it has been so long since I have updated my blog. I have started a new seasonal job to help cover Christmas and they have been giving me a ton of hours. Anyway, on to the card. haha

Today I have for you a card that I made for my nephews 2nd birthday. I thought this image by Mo's Digital Pencil was just perfect since this little guy looks like he's about that age and trying to figure the world out all on his own. I colored with Copics (of course), distressed the edges and put a big Happy Birthday in the middle.

Well, thanks for looking, I hope you like it!!!

New Copic Buzz Challenge

Good morning all, how are you today? Today I have a card that I made for the Copic Buzz Challenge on PCP and this week the awesome Victoria Case is our sponsor. She has provided a free image for you to color and she is a cutie!!!
On my card I colored her with spring colors (I'm in denial that winter is right around the corner) and even cut out a cute little butterfly to put in the lower right corner. The paper is from DCWV from a collection called "garden party" of course. I used Prima flowers and a Martha Stewart butterfly punch as my accents!!! Please come on over, join our group and take part in our challenge!! I can't wait to see what you creat!!

Little kisses

Hello everyone, how are you today? I am good today!! I just got a great little surprise, my neighbor rang the bell and brought over some homemade, hot out of the oven, blueberry crisp. YUMMO. We have the best neighbors, they are always bringing us goodies (I think that's how they stay so thin). They are just the sweetest retired couple ever!!

Anyway, on to the other fun stuff!! Today I have a card that features an image by Mo's digital pencil. This image is just sooooo cute!!! I love all of the details in it and it was so fun to color!! I made a card for this image for the Copic Buzz challenge this week. This week Jana is asking us to use your Copics to color your embellishments with. I have the airbrush system (just like the starter kit) and have only used it a handfull of times, but I have to say I do love it and look forward to getting an air compressor to hook it up to!! Besides all of that, I added stickles to the girls coat and white flocking to both coats. I also added Polor White Flowersoft for the snow at their feet (and a little on the back of her coat). The big snowflakes I got at Hobby Lobby in their Christmas department (Yes, they have Christmas stuff out already) and put dew drops in the centers after airbrushing them. The dp is from Alpine Frost collection by SEI (I just love their paper).

Thanks for stopping everyone!! Now go get crafty!!!

Lookin' for clues

Today I have a card for you that has been floating around in my head ever since I got this image from Mo's Digital Pencil. She was giving this image away as a freebie because there have been some companies selling her images as their own. How horrible is that? You can find Mo's images here, so make sure you are buying them right from her and not someone else trying to scam!!!

Ok, on to the card!! Like I said, this card has been floating around in my head. This image can be used in so many different ways, but this is the first that popped into my head. I colored the image with Copics, used Prima flowers, misc cardstock from my stash and printed the sentiment out on my computer (as it is something I thought of for this card). I sure hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it!!!

Thanks again for stopping by my corner of the world and taking a look. I hope you all have a great weekend!!

Cupcake box

Hello everyone I hope you are all having a great day and have been getting creative in my absence. I have been away dealing with some family things, but am now getting my mojo back!!

Today I have a cupcake box for you. Yes, it's Christmas themed, but hey, some of us have to get a headstart or we will end up way behind!! It is October 1st and as most are thinking Halloween, I have been trying to get into the Christmas spirit (a little hard when the leaves still haven't turned color) This box is the first thing I made when I got my new Scor-pal!! Let me tell you, I just love this thing. It took me a while to order one, as I thought I could do just as good a job with my stylus and trimmer, but I tell you, I don't know how I ever lived without this thing. I totally whipped this box out in about 1/2 hour and that was while I was watching tv. I used Basic Grey Christmas paper called "Figgy Pudding" and some ribbon I got at Michaels. For the window I used my clear cardstock from PTI (another must have).
Well, I hope you enjoy and get inspired to make your own. Drop me a line if you do so I can see what you have created!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
