Spring is coming!!!!!

Hello friends, we finally have a semi sunny day here in GA.  I decided to work on some Easter cards.  This is an old Whipper Snapper image.  I colored with copics and this dp is from Stampin' Up!

Enjoy Every Moment

I am in love with this cute mouse from a new Penny Black Stamp Set.  I colored with Prismacolor pencils and the paper is from my scrap bin.  I got a little smudge on the paper so rather than trash the card I added some enamel dots.

Wish Big

Hello friends, happy Monday!  I decided to play along with the current Mojo Monday Challenge.  I am using this sweet image from Penny Black Stamps, I colored with Prismacolor pencils and the designer paper is all from my scrap bin!  I am so proud of myself when we moved into this house back in Sept. while going through my papers I put all my scraps in this big huge box and was going to donate them and then that never happened so I started pulling papers from them while making cards, I have not bought any paper since we moved and most of what I have used is coming from my scrap bin!!

Ear to Ear

Happy Friday everyone... Can you believe it? I actually have a card to share with you today.  I decided to play along with this weeks sketch challenge at Mftstamps.  I used this sweet little bunny from the Easter Bunny set.  I colored with copic markers and the design paper is from MFTstamps. I added some light clouds to the back ground using a stencil.  Again, I apologize for not the greatest of pictures-the lighting is dreadful here in GA, I really and tired of all the rain.  I also still think I need to send my camera in to have it checked.

Here is my second card using the current sketch at SCS.  I am using one of my all time favorite Penny Black Stamps.  I colored with my new set of Prismacolor pencils and the paper is from Crate.  I really need to find a good spot in our new house for taking pictures, this is not the best.

Big Birthday Wishes

Hello friends from rainy and dreary Georgia!  I have been getting back into my crafty space a little bit-still working out of totes which makes the process longer but I have been trying.    I just love this new set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Lots of Love, so many cute critters to color up.    I colored up this sloth with copics and the paper is from my scrap box.  I have been waiting a couple days for some brighter light to take better pictures but I got tired of waiting, its not the best photo but for now it will do.

Thinking of you

Playing along with the SCS sketch today..  Love this new to me stamp from Penny Black stamps from the set Fancy Florals.  I made the background with some oxide inks and stamped with Versafine ink.  I was going to use a Sympathy sentiment but decided I could use a Thinking of You card for more occasions.

Birthday Bear

Hello friends, Happy 2020 to all.. Sorry I have been missing in action lately.  Between moving across country and The holidays and now some health issues I have not even organized my crafty space yet.  I am trying to get back into the groove.  I found time to play with this cute new image from Penny Black Stamps, I used Prismacolor pencils.  I need to work on my cloud making skills.  I hope you all have a Healthy and Blessed 2020.

Thinking of you

Hello friends,  taking a crack in the craft room again...  Using this weeks MFTstamps sketch challenge- I started with this in my mind, I didn't turn the sketch just did it the upright way instead of the long way.  I used some distress oxide ink for my main panel and one of these fun flowers from the Flower Silhouette stamp set from MFTstamps.  I really need to get my butt moving and get my craft room together, this digging through totes to find things just makes the process so much longer and frustrating.

HB Beautiful

Hello friends, decided to play along with Tuesday Morning Sketches .. I am using this sweet set from Unity Stamps called Grow & Change, I colored with Copic Markers and the paper is from Pebbles. The sentiment is from another Unity set called Demand a recount. I had looked at the sketch early in the day yesterday and then tried to make card from memory-it's not exact but hopefully close enough! 😀

Hello friends...  It's been a long couple of months since I posted.  Our move across country has been and continues to be a huge adjustment for ME!  We are in our home but not quite settled yet.  I went from a home with a custom built craft space to a home with nothing as far as craft storage, desk, etc.  I was not even sure I wanted to set up my craft room at all-kind of depressed I think.  Hubby built me a crafting counter he still has to do a few touch ups to it but I can use it.  I am slowly going through my stuff (so much) to decide what I am going to keep and what kind of storage I am going to need.  I needed to make a couple of Thank you cards for friends who helped us out in our move and this is the first one- It took a lot longer to make because I had to dig for supplies along the way!  I love this cute image by Penny Black Stamps, I colored with Copic markers and the paper is from DCWV.  I had to stand up using my sewing machine because I do not have a sewing table yet!  Anyway, this is a start.  I think I am going to go through and use some of my stamps that have not seen ink in a long time! I have missed all my sweet friends that stop by from time to time and leave comments!

Don't forget about the stamp of the month.  You can still get Singing Praises for a couple more days when you place a $75 order as well as free shipping.
Happy Crafting!

#1 Teacher

Hello friends, hope this finds everyone doing well.  I feel like I have been M.I.A.  Oh wait, I have been!  We are in the midst of getting ready to move in about 10 days, so I have been busy packing up my craft area/house- what a big job. I did find a little time to craft so today I have a cute little note card perfect for a child to give a teacher on the first day of school.  I love this new set Back To School by Jennifer Nilsson for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I colored with Copic markers and used a bunch of scraps for my background.
My second card features Singing Praises which is the Stamp of the Month by Nina Brackett.  Oh my goodness, just a precious stamp set so near and dear to my heart because I am a bird lover.  I colored with Copic Markers and again used up scraps.  I fussy cut the little flowers and added some pearls to the center.  You can get this set free for a few more days when you place a $75 order.  Hurry, you don't want to miss out!  I will be back with another post on Thursday but then that will be it for awhile as we transition into our new home and I get my craft room set up.
