Good Morning,

How is everyone?  This is always my favorite time of the year.  

Before I get to my card I want to let you know SCACD is open again for business and has in some new products.  Below are just a few.

On to my card.  The image is Courageous Eyes from The Eyes of Adventure and Fables Collection. This collection is so unique there is a little something for everyone.  She is colored with copics.  The dp is from my stash.
Did you see the beautiful corner die?  It is one of the Dies by SCACD - Fancy Flowers and Key Corners.  The dies by SCACD cut so beautifully every time and there again, these are very creative and unique.

Did all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving? My only family that is here in town is my mother and sister so we had a nice dinner and watched the Cowboys lose.  My daughters live in TN and Hawaii so I will see them later.  This will be the first year that we have not been together on Thanksgiving or Christmas.  Christmas just doesn't seem the same without grandchildren here to help decorate, make cookies, etc.  However, I am VERY THANKFUL for God, my family, and my life.

Everyone have a wonderful week and will see you back here next week.

Good Morning !!

Turkey Day is almost here and the weather here in Texas is beautiful! Wish it could stay this way all year long.

Today I am sharing my first canvas with you.  I see so many beautiful canvases in blogland I thought it would be fun to try one.  SCACD has so many cute stamps I want to try to incorporate with canvas.  The latest release - MYTHICAL REfLECTIONS  has the prettiest dragon (LITTLE DRACO) that I can't wait to play around with.

The background of this canvas  is various paints with various colors of LUMINARTE SILK ACYRLIC GLAZES to give it a pretty shine. The technique was a little different. The image "BIG HAT PEEKER"   is from the ELISABETH BELL - SAMPLER #6 (HATS).  

The image is stamped on tissue paper and colored with Copics.  The tissue paper should be a non bleeding tissue paper.  After coloring the image, I cut it out and applied it to the canvas.

The butterfly is cut from paper with a little STICKLES applied on the solid purple pink.  I couldn't get a good pic to reflect the look.  It is finished off with KAISERCRAFT RHINESTONES.


Will see you back here on the 27th.

I hope all of you have had a wonderful week and have a fun filled weekend planned.  My plan is to craft all weekend. YEA!!!
Please let's remember everyone on the east coast and keep them in our prayers.
Today I am sharing one of the images from SUSANA LOVES STAMPS - MYTHICAL REFLECTIONS COLLECTION.  She goes by the name HANNAH.  I just love that name - it sounds like a peaceful name.  Check out this set.  It is one of cutest collections.
I chose to do my image today in pink and purple because my granddaughter's birthday is next month and these are her favorite colors.  HANNAH  is stamped with Momento Ink and colored with SHINHAN ART MARKERS and Copics.  Her wand and head band are accented with COPIC GLITTLER PENS.
The corners on the image were made using the MEMORY BOX DIE - ELEGANT SCROLLWORK.  However, I cut it up and applied some STICKLES - STARDUST.  The flowers were some from my stash.  They were white and colored with copics and Stickles applied.  The sentiment is one I have had forever.  Remember, you can click on the image and it will enlarge.
All of you have a wonderful weekend and I will see you back here next week.

 Little Bo Peep


Good Morning !  

We have another super cute blog hop for you today.  This is SCACD's last 2 stamp releases of the year! We're bringing you cuteness from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD with 4 new adorable stamps in the Sampler #8 Collection. We also have Susana Loves Stamps new collection- Mythical Reflections which brings you 4 more mythical stamps to help inspire you and help you create! Be sure to check out all the details on the SCACD store blog and hop along with the SCACD DT as we showcase these amazing new stamps!

These stamps go on sale today at SCACD  and for my International friends they can be purchased at QUIXOTIC PAPERIE. 

If you are following the blog, you should have arrived here from CHRIS' BLOG.  If you didn't start at the beginning you can start at DANNI'S BLOG.

Isn't this stamp adorable?  I couldn't decide what sentiment to use because the image is so versatile.  Maybe, a cute new baby card?  Of course, I used one of my favorite color combinations - purple and green.  The image is stamped with MOMENTO INK and colored with copics.  The baby lamb is so cute it had to be fluffy and soft so I used flower soft. The flowers and gems are from my stash.

Another angle for the pic. Did you notice the frame around the image?  I used the DIES BY SCACD -  FANCY FLOWER.  This dies actually comes with another one - KEY CORNERS.  Below is a picture for more clarity.

Now for more fun please hop on over to SUZANNE'S BLOG 

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you on the east coast.  Please be safe.
