Hi Everyone,

The holiday seasons are upon us.  This is my favorite time of the year.  I love the lights, family, and celebrating the birth of Christ and seeing all the kids faces so happy and shining on Christmas morning.

To help ring in the holidays I made a simple card to share with you.  The image is a digi from Carmen Medlin Digitals for SCACD - Christmas Owl  Since the papers are so busy I kept it simple and just used papers, punch, and rhinestones.  The image is colored with Prismacolor Pencils and highlighted with Stickles and Gloss. 

Thank you for stopping by.  I value all of my followers and comments and also value your work as well.

Have a wonderful day and a fun week !!

Harvest Greetings

Good Morning,

Today is going to be a beautiful crisp Fall day.  Thanksgiving will be here soon and everyone has something to be thankful for.  Happy Happy time of the year.

I couldn't wait to share this cute little owl with you  He is so versatile.  It is a Carmen Medlin for SCACD Digital - GOTHIE OWL.  As so many of you do - I love owls and can't get enough of them. There are some of all styles HEREIn fact next week I will have another one to share with you

The image is colored with Copics and I put some crackle on his belly, gloss on his nails and eyes  and finished the card with some Stickles.  The background paper was just plain so I added some purple glitz. The spiders are from my stash. 

Thank you for stopping bye today and I  will see you next week.  In the meantime have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your week.

Winter Friends

Good Morning,

It is a beautiful morning. The air is crisp and cool and so refreshing.  Should be a gorgeous day.

Today I would like to share one of my favorite digis - WINTER FRIENDS by Carmen Medlin for SCACD Digital.   I love owls.  In fact, we have one that visits us every night - never knew they could be so loud.  SCACD has some holiday digis also with owls that are really cute.  Check them out.


The image is colored with Copics and then I used some faux snow at the bottom.  Did you notice the little pearls put here and there around the card?  They pearls are KAISERCRAFT PEARLS .

Enjoy the rest of the week and have a fabulous and fun weekend !

Good Morning,

Looks life fall is here.  Love the weather, but the allergies not so much.  That means my favorite season - Christmas - is just around the corner.

Bobble Heads seem to have made a big return everywhere.  So, I wanted to make a card using this CARMEN MEDLIN  for SCACD DIGITAL - BOBBLE PUMPKINThe sentiment comes with the image - which for me is perfect - and is funny.

The image is colored with a combination of Copics and NeoColors.  His head is cut out and popped up.  See the little calico cat in the corner - it was cut using the  IMPRESSION OBSESSION DIES and then I used a tiny green eye.  SCACD  has the 6 x 6 paper pads on sale now, including the holidays.

Hope you enjoyed my card and it made you laugh.

Have a wonderful week and be safe !!

These trees are so beautiful. To me they reflect a calming and peaceful affect.  As you can see there are 2 different sizes.  These are wonderful for journaling  whether in a scrapbook, on a card, or canvas.  In fact, I am considering doing a journaling page and a canvas with them.  Of course, you can use them several different ways.  I stamped in DELICATA PIGMENT INK  - Golden Glitz.  
The birds are stenciled with a CRAFTERS WORKSHOP STENCIL - CHERRY BLOSSOMS.  The sentiment on the bottom reads "Strength comes from within."

No Mixed Signals

Love Love Love the MechAnimalsThey are so much fun and your imagination can just run wild.  There is no right or wrong with these.  I really like the sentiment with this imageWith the  multi social media we live in today sometimes messages, email, twitter etc. can be taken different ways.

The image is colored with the copics. The very versatile corners are  DIES by SCACD - Garden Corners.  They cut beautifully every time.  The embellishments are from my stash.

Good Morning,

Today Susana Loves Stamps releases yet another round of these FUN little pranksters the Oddly Sweet Curiosities! With their universal appeal the Curiosities were just begging for another turn in the spotlight with a new release. These little guys are the perfect way to provoke a smile or a laugh. We're addicted, and from the popularity of the previous sets we know you will be too! Susana Loves Stamps is also showcasing a fresh new line: the MechAnimals. This edgy but endearing range of SteamPunk animals will lend themselves to all sorts of projects and styles and earn a place in your crafty hearts.

Grab a cup of something yummy and enjoy the show!

We are also  having a fun and exciting  blog hop so you should have arrived here from one of the most talented artist - Elaine's blog. 

Look at the smile on her face !   She obviously has found her inner energy.  Did you notice the corner dies?  They are  Dies by SCACD - Garden Corners.  I also used them around the flowers after cutting a little.  The sentiment "Happiness be with you" is included with the image GOT ZEN?

Isn't he awesome and grungy in his black leather jacket?  This set is so versatile and can be used in so many different ways.

He is perched on some metal gears.  SCACD has the Idea-Ology Mini Metal Gears 12/Pkg on sale now.  The paper is Teresa Collins - Far Away as well as the Travel Log tab which I cut from one of the pages.

The gorgeous compass die is Dies by SCACD - Contempo Compass Statement Corner.  I think it finished off the card very nicely.

SCACD Digital is a new adventure for Susana and will see the revival of "some" past releases available in rubber, and the addition of some fresh new fun! They are available now for purchase but watch out for some fun from the design team and friends to showcase the digital releases in the near future!

Good Morning and Happy Friday !!

This morning I have a rather simple card.  You know how sometimes life gets kinda hard and you just want simple.  I guess that's the mood I was in this week. 

This cute image makes me smile.  It is from the SUSANA LOVES STAMPS -  THE ODDLY SWEET CURIOSITIES SET - MONSTER CHILL.  He looks as if he doesn't have a care in the word and the sentiment was on one of the sheets in the paper pad so I cut it out.  I guess that is kinda cheating.

The beautiful die is a DIE BY SCACD - LEAFY BRANCHES.  What is so cool about this die is that you can cut it apart and use the leaves with flowers or even attach on another tree that may be on the paper or another die.

The flowers and rhinestones are from my stash.  The border is from the paper pad.

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

Good Morning and HAPPY FRIDAY !!

Today I have created something a little different.  It can be a tag, bookmark, or used in a scrapbook layout.  The image is TIME FLIES  from FAIRY DUST COLLECTION by Elisabeth Bell for SCACDIf you haven't seen this collection it is so versatile and cute.  The background is various stamps and different colors of teal and burgundy with washi tape at the bottom.  On her wings I used GOLD GEO SHAPED SPARKLERS.

Just looooove this die.  It is so detailed and cuts beautifully.  It is  DIES by SCACD - CLASSIC TIMEPIECE.  After I cut it I sponged a little DELICATA Pigment Ink - Golden Glitz on it to give it a distressed looked and then applied mod podge over it and added some brads.

This is a picture to show how it can be used on a scrapbook layout.  It isn't a very good picture because I don't have anything glued down - still playing around with it.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.  You can click on any of the pictures and they will enlarge.

Good Morning and Happy Friday!!

I just got back home from visiting my daughter and grandkids in TN.  It was a nice relaxing week and always fun to see the kids.  My granddaughter called me a couple of weeks ago and wanted to know if I could come see them and stay a couple of days and go to grandparents day with her.  It not only made her happy, but made me feel really really happy that she wanted me to go to her school and meet her teacher and friends.  

The project I am sharing today is a canvas.  I have been wanting to try one with all the tissue paper, paint, embellishments, etc.  It was really fun creating it and just trying different products.  I will say it took me a long time to do it, but I think that was because I had not ever tried to do one before now.

It started out as a white 5 x 7 canvas.  Then I applied black gesso and let it dry.  The key tissue paper was sent to me by a very very dear friend and I have been wanting to use it for a long time.  The image KEY TO MY HEART  is just perfect with it.  The metal gears are Idea-Ology Mini Metal Gears.  They are on sale - 20% off at SCACD.  Also, in the store are some beautiful canvas birds - Prima Resist Canvas - BirdsThe chain, keys, and flowers and from my stash. 

Did you notice the beautiful key corner die  in the upper left corner?  This die comes in a package with another die - Dies by SCACD - Fancy FLower and Key Corners.  I love using dies and even though these are detailed they cut the first time.

This is just another picture to show up close the chipboard bird cage.  There is a product called glass bead gel and I mixed it with acrylic paint and love the texture.   Remember you can click on any of the photos and they will enlarge.  If you have time let me know what you think of my first real canvas !!

Have a wonderful weekend!

These are 6 sweet and sassy Fairys that just make you smile and brighten the day :D  Elisabeth Bell sprinkled just the right amount of cute, charm and gorgeous on to these special little fairys. These are stamps for right now but also classics to use years from now :D

Before I get to the details of my image - you should have arrived here from WENDY'S blog.  She is a guest designer this week and has a fabulous project for you.

The image I am sharing is LITTLE ACORNS, BIG DREAMS.  She is soooo sweet.  Actually, all the fairies in this collection are super sweet.  The picture really doesn't show all the detail.  She is colored with a combination of Copics and SHINHAN MARKERS.  For the embossing I used a COUTURE CREATIONS FOLDER - EXOTIC. The mushroom dots and acorns are highlighed with gloss and the wings are highlighted with STICKLES.  The other embellies are from my stash.

Hope you are enjoying the hop and all the wonderful projects.
International friends can purchase these at Quixotic Paperie

Good Morning,

Today I am sharing an image from the BLANK CANVAS COLLECTION #2.   She is so beautiful and dainty.  The closeup pic is so you can see the shimmer and shine.  I stamped her in pink and then embossed .

This picture shows more of the detail.  Did you notice the little dandelions around her?  This is a NEW DIES BY SCACD - DANDELION KNOLL STATEMENT CORNER.  Of course, I cut it apart to look like the dandelions blew around her.  The black border around her was made using a stencil.

Since I cut the die apart, I finished out the inside so I could show you the entire DIES BY SCACD - DANDELION KNOLL STATEMENT CORNER.  Susana just released some other dies along with this one.  Check them out -Breezy Branches, Contempo Compass, and  Steampunk Wings (pair),

Wishing all of you a HAPPY EASTER !!!!  Have a wonderful weekend.
