Beach Penguin

Welcome and thanx for stopping by.  I hope all is well in your world.

This card is for my BFF in Hawaii.  I miss her SO much.  She is a HUGE lover of penguins, and has quite a collection of all types of them.  When I saw this image I knew it would be perfect for her birthday.

I colored the image with my Copics, added some real sand (from HI of course, lol) and then added the tiny buttons and the sun.  I got the idea for it from Crystal who is on my DT at CC&CC.  She used it on a card and I loved it!  Mine was cut on my Silhouette as I didn't have a die cut for a sun.  But it came our just fine.

The inside greeting was printed from my computer.

Relax & enjoy your day!

Paper Pattern Rose

I am giggling as I write this post ~ I have to give credit to my CAT for this card, lol!  He was scampering about and landed on my computer keyboard, and the image of this rose popped up from one of my files.  I looked at it and thought, hmmmm, I have an idea for this . . .   Thanx so much Zazu for the great inspiration!  Meow!

It will be a perfect card for an upcoming birthday of a dear friend.

We NEVER KNOW where the inspiration for our next project will come from!

Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenges #85 Layout

Welcome to another challenge over at CC&CC.  We hope you enjoy using this great layout.  I really like it because it can be used for a clean and simple look, or dress it up for a more frilly look.  I chose the CAS.

Our sponsor is the FAB A Day For Daisies.  I LOVE their images drawn by Tammy Siemers Thompson.  I used this beauty called "Green Lady".  But I did not do her in green . . . 

I colored her with my Copics, added some Frantage around her and mounted her on a die cut frame.  I used gold embossing for the lanterns and symbol.  I love the clean look of this card, no muss, no fuss, lol.

We would love to have you join us for this layout challenge.  I'm sure it will get your creative juices flowing!

Creative Knockouts # ~ Spots & Dots

Hello, so glad you stopped by.  Your visits mean a lot to me!

We are on to a new challenge at Creative Knockouts, and this time it is to use "Spots & Dots".  This cute image I used is from our sponsor Drawn With Character, and is called "Dancing Spring Chick".  When I saw this little cutie I immediately thought of Spring, Easter and polka dots, lol.

I had a lot of fun using a new paper pack called "Pebbles" by Family Ties.  My image was colored using my Copics and mounted on a die cut frame.  Then I added the flowers from my stash.

Why don't you come join us for this fun challenge and show us your 
Spots & Dots ~ see you there!

Get It Right The First Time, LOL!

Welcome and happy Friday!
This card I am posting is for a sweet cousin of mine who just started a new job.  I know she will get a giggle from it.  I love these images by Bugaboo that are called Crabby Cathy.  They are so cute!  This one is called "
Crabby Cathy - first time" and was just what I needed.
For some reason I am on a polka dot kick!  I love them, and I really like to combine them with stripes, and I love this color combo!  I colored my image with my Copics and then added the sentiment and bow.

I hope you have a GREAT weekend and get a bit time to do 
some crafting.  ENJOY!

Friends Are Like Thighs . .

Time for another card, and one that is not for my challenge blogs, lol.  I just purchased several new stamps and was so anxious to use this one.  It is by Stampingbella from their "Senior" collection with Mildred and Maud.  When I saw it it made me laugh out loud.  I knew I had to have it, and I had the perfect friend in mind to make it for.  It was a delight to work with!

It was colored with my Copics and I set it off with some really fun polka dot papers, and added the polka dot flower just for fun!  The sentiment just cracks me up!

Thanx for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of your week.
Happy Crafting!

What's Cooking

Welcome to my bit of blog land.  I would like to share a card that I did that is a copy of one of my favorite carfters, KittyKraft.  Her work is absolutely incredible and ALWAYS inspires me.  I especially love this card because of its clean and simple look and the lovely striped paper she used.  You can see her original creation here.  This is my take on the same card.

I cut the chickens our with my Silhouette, used a border punch and added the little cooking utensils.  I like this card so much that I bought several sheets of paper that match each other to make more of them.  It's a great card to send to friends you haven't heard from in a while or just to say hi and ask what's up!

Valentine's day is just around the corner.  So over at CC&CC we are hosting our Love Is In The Air challenge. We have a great new sponsor,
We sure did enjoy creating with their adorable digis!  My little gal is called "Elenor's Heart Balloons".  I colored her with my Copics, and used a new heart die cut that I just love.  I did several layers of clear heat embossing on it to give it a bit of shine.  I used a punch for the edge of the image base and added some rhinestone hearts.  My last touch was the tiny key.

We would love to have you join in and share your lovely Valentine's with us!
You will have a chance to win 3 digis from Lacy Sunshine.
