Happy Friday!  Is everyone ready for a long Memorial Day Weekend?  I know I am.  I have lots and lots of new products I want to play with.  It's time for me to venture out and get down and dirty with products and techniques you will see next week. (heehee)

Now to today's card.  This precious image is SENDING LOVE ANGEL by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD.    I have always wanted to do a black and white image with a touch of red so this is the one.  It's different for me because I loooove color.  She is colored with different shades of  COPICS  gray and highlighted with CHRISTMAS RED STICKLES.  After I made the card I realized there are so many different occasions I can use it for.
When you have time be sure and check around the storeSUSANA  has in all the newest and latest products and receives more and more every week.

Wishing all of you a FUN and SAFE WEEKEND!!

Good Morning !!  It's the end of another week and time for some fun.  (YAY)  

Today I am going to show you a tag I made.  Getting down and dirty is out of my comfort zone, but I am pleased with the way this turned out.   I started with a blank  INKSENTIALS CRAFT TAG -#8  and embossed it with the  CUTTLEBUG EMBOSSING FOLDER - MARY ANN which  SUSANA happens to have on sale right now.  This is where it will get hard for me to explain.  I used  LUMINARTE PRIMARY ELEMENTS MICA POWDERS  in the following colors and just sponged them on until I got the color mixture I wanted.  I have to admit getting down and dirty was really really really lots of  fun.  The colors I used are TEAL ZIRCONAPPLE BLOSSOMSTARGAZERBOUGAINVILLEA, and SOLAR GOLD.  I mixed my powder with some gum arabic and just sponged away.  Talking about it makes me want to start another one.

I chose the BOO BOO PEEKER  from the  SWEET SUMMER PEEKERS  because I figure with 4 of my grandchildren here for 6 weeks this summer I would be able to use it.  I can attach it to some ice cream or cookies.
SHOPPING ALERT:  SUSANA has some more fun things to play with.

Happy Friday to all my friends!  Did all of you have a fabulous week?  Mine was so so - can't complain.  This image is kinda special to me, it is the FAMILY PEEKER from the SWEET HOME PEEKERS by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD.  Since both of my son in laws are in the Army , my children keep photos around so the grandchildren can look at them.  We try to get together at least once a year, but now with the younger one being transferred to Hawaii for 3 years that will be impossible.  She has 4 children and it would cost her a fortune to fly back to Texas for a visit.

The image is colored with COPICS.  Her skirt is paper pieced and I shadowed it COPICS and then applied STICKLES.  The lovely pink slippers also has a little STICKLES.  Did you notice the picture frame?  I applied the LUMINARTE PRIMARY ELEMENTS - SOLAR GOLD.  The Primary Elements are absolutely gorgeous.  If you click on the picture it will enlarge and you can see how awesome it is.  The embellishments and lace are from my stash.    I will be showing you a tag I am working on next week.  The background is really awesome.  

All of you have a wonderful weekend and I hope to see you back here next Friday.

I would like to tell all my followers how much I appreciate you coming by and leaving me comments.  Some days when I don't feel up to par,  I can read your comments and they lift me up and give me so much inspiration.  so  THANK YOU!!!!

Good Morning !  It's finally Friday ! (YAY)  Hope all of you are planning a fun filled weekend.  It is going to be really really windy again here so with my allergies I will be staying inside.  That's okay I hope to be able to craft away into fantasy land.
Today I am going to show you  MEADOW PEEKER  from the SWEET HOME PEEKERS by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD.

Isn't it just like little kids to be climbing and looking through fences?  After all, there is so much to see on the other side - cows, horses, etc.  This card is rather simple because the beautiful DP can stand alone.  The DP is PRIMA - SUN KISS.  This paper pad is so summery.  The large butterfly is MEMORY BOX DIE - VIVIENNE BUTTERFLY.  Now to the sentiment.  When I was cleaning up my craft room I came across some glass slides I purchased a couple of years ago and decided to use one.  I backed it with paper, stamped the sentiment on the glass, went around the edges with  AUTUMN FLOWER SOFT and finished it off with a flower I made from my daisy punches and added a cute little bee.  The image is colored with  COPICS and the flowers, butterflies, and glass slide are highlighted with STICKLES.

Have a wonderful weekend and hope to see you back next week.
