Puddles…Oh My….

This is my newest card. It was made with a free digi called “Rainy Days” which was offered for the Scrapper’s Delight April Progressive Challenge. I sure wish we had some puddles down here.  It’s hot and dry as can be. I don’t think we’ve had any April Showers this year!

I colored the image with my Copic Markers and the Sentiment is computer printed.  I’ve used a sheet of Pattern Paper from the MFT paper stack called “Plaid Patterns.” I used my Martha Stewart Score Board to score the bottom inch of the card and finished that off with rounded corners and a bit of blue and white Twine from my stash. The Blue Sequins are also from My Favorite Things.

I then used a Hexagon Die from Gina Marie which I traced around and hand-cut out.





Mr. and Mrs. “Fall.”

I had a few minutes today and thought I give it a go at coloring this “Dearie Dolls” digi image.  When I looked at them I wondered if they were looking for the “perfect pumpkin” to make their pie? LOL.

I colored them with my Copic Markers and also used a few of my Prisma Colored Pencils and a White Pen.

I made the card base out of Kraft Paper from My Favorite Things and my Gold Paper is also from them.  The die I used for the Corners came from My Paper World, which is an Australian Co.

The assorted Sequins are also from My Favorite Things.  The Fence Punch is by Martha Steward and is several years old.

Thanks for stopping by.



“Happy Halloween….”

Hi everyone.  This was my last Halloween Card for the year… unless I come across another that I realize that I didn’t post.  LOL.

The image is from the INFAMOUS “KennyK” and is called “Trixxie Treat.” I colored her with my Prisma Pencils and outlined the image with a Frost Blue #BOO Copic Marker.  The sequins are all from My Favorite Things and they come in assorted color sets.  A few boxes of these have pretty much covered all the various colors that I’ll probably need.

The chipboard and twine was in my stash and probably came from Michaels or Joanns. The Black Cardstock is called Licorice and also comes from My Favorite Things. The Printed paper came from a Halloween Paper Stack called “Trick Or Treat” by “The Paper Studio” from Hobby Lobby.  I bought it last year after Halloween for 90% off. You can’t beat that!

“Eat More Ham”…

…Can’t you just hear him saying bleating that?  I sure can.  I really felt for him when I saw this image for the first time and just had to have it for a Thanks Giving card.  I have some very quirky friends who will love it.

I made this card for our current monthly “Just-For-Fun Challenge” at The Crafting Circle.  We always have some nice sketches to follow.

The image is a digital one by Boobel and is named “Turkey”. He is priced at only $1.50 right now. I’ve colored him with my Copic Markers, a few Prisma Colored Pencils, and I highlighted him with black and red Sakura Pens. I also used Color Box Chestnut Roan Ink to highlight the image. I fussy-cut and popped him with foam tabs, and I couldn’t resist giving him some Google Eyes.

The papers are from a Cloud 9 Stack called “Speciality Papers” and is quite old. It’s a great stack because it covers all 4 seasons.

The letters are cut from the Bottle Cap Letter Dies by Die-namics from My Favorite Things. The assorted Sequins, which come in several boxed color sets, are also from MFT. I also used 2 of my Spellbinders Nestabilities Square Dies because I can never get them all cut the same size! LOL.


Crafting Circle Challenge

Artistic Expressions




This is a card I made for the Crafting Circle Monthly “Just For Fun Challenge.” It’s Sketch #4.

The papers were all in my stash as were the wooden buttons.  The “Hello” Die is Die-namics by My Favorite Things.  The bigger leaves are from a Gina Marie Die and the very small leaves were punched from an old punch I had by “Family Treasures.”

The Sequins are from “My Favorite Things” and so is the “Gift Box Cover-Up” Die.

I was not pleased with how the Vellum worked for a shaker card and next time I will use some kind of Acetate.
