Watercolor Darcy Dragonfly

Hi Y'all
Well I haven't entered many challenges where you win anything but to be truthful, I thought I should probably give it a try.....this was my second thought after surfing around the internet and finding some other challenges that I thought were interesting.  I love The Doodle Garden and it  is a company that I really enjoy ...so when I was looking around I thought I would give it a try at Glitter and Sparkle Challenge.  I used an Image from The Doodle Garden called Darcy Dragonfly. 

I got the Tim Holtz watercolor markers about a month ago and I tried them and was not really feelin' the love.....but I tried again and I feel this image is much better or at least it turned out a bit better.  I have digi images and that also means you have to be careful when spreading the color that the black outline (printer) ink doesn't smear....well it happened on the wings but trust me I am feelin' all kinds of love for those markers now....practice definitely made perfect.  I think Darcy is just the cutest little fairy! 

The other new thing for me, yes, even after a few years of card making, I had not tried the JOY CARD.  I also LOVED making this card...its like the song that never ends...well this ends but it just keeps going with a little surprise on each flap.  I had used some 6 x 6 Crate Paper.  I think I usually put more "stuff" on my cards but this one just pleased me with the image and all the paper images.  It was super fun to make and I think I will cruze the interweb more often and find some challenges that inspire me to create more love.

Late, late, late that is what I seem to be these days.  I use to blame it on my DD however, she has nothing to do with this being late....OH if there were only more hours in the day....no, that wouldn't work because I would find something else to do in those hours and blam.....I still would be late..lol

This weeks challenge card was fun to do; however, it posed a little difficult for me to get balanced.  Some cards are meant to be unbalanced but when I make them I NEVER like them.

My card image came from Imagine That where you will find cute images not only from Kris but also her daughter creates as well.  That is talent!!!  I hope you go on over and look at the images she creates.  Each month there are a ton of new and wonderful images and sentiments you can choose from.  Now for my card.
I have been using up some of my older paper because I have a ton of the stuff and frankly I don't need any more.....gasp.....I only admit it here because my husband never comes and looks at my blog.  He thinks he lives with my crafty goodness he certainly doesn't wanna read about it....lol. 

This paper is from Cactus Pink, they are a company that only seemed to be around for a bit but I loved their stuff.  Although you can't really see a whole lot of the image here.  I used a spellbinders egg shape die for the eggs and stickles to blink up some of them.  I used a micron pen to draw the string and added a layer of flowers to the bunnies hat with dimensionals and glossy accents.  I think this lady bunny is just so sweet.  Come on over to Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge and give yourself an evening of fun creating from the sketches provided.  You know you wanna......:)  Happy Scrappin Folks. cheers

Rollin' by with a Birthday "HI"

OH my word that Kris, at Imagine That, has done it again!  It is so darn easy to create with images that are so cute you just wanna squeeze the cheeks on the farmer boy!  I have created this card in just a few minutes for a quick- I"M RUNNING LATE kinda card.  I am sure the little boy it was created for will just love it!

I used doodlebug epoxy dots to jazz it up a little and Cosmo Cricut Paper.  I loved coloring this image with copics because Everything matched and I could make it look almost the same as the image you could print in full color.  I printed the background out as it was because it was a super time saver!  This little farmer is cute for all those little John Deere Fans, I just think I need a girl driving a Gator since my darling daughter drives on faster than most little boys her age....I guess when your country it is born right in ya!  YEA HAW!

Fairies after St. Patrick's Day?

Okay Peeps
It rolls a little something like this.....I made a St. Patrick's Day Birthday card (to celebrate the month long birthday madness at Imagine That).  But the great thing...A crafty person could use it anytime of the year....why you may ask??????  BECAUSE its so darn cute...Just look at her curly hair!

And really WHO doesn't love clover?  .....well really that would be based on allergies and all sorts of things but really they are cute little green sweetness :)  The inside poem is so cute (yep Kris Brech included a poem I coined.....too cool eh?).   Tweens are hard to "find" special things for so now there is just another reason you need to purchase digis from Kris.....she thinks of everything!

I love to get your feedback, be sure to leave a comment and follow along!
Happy Scrappin Peeps!

Guest Designer for Little Blue Button Stamps

I am not sure if there could be any greater treat than to be asked to be a guest designer for a stamp company that you truly love**gush**.  Olga, whom is owner of Little Blue Button Stamps (lbbs), had asked me to design for the March stamp set which I have been completely delighted to do!  I used Miss Lily on Coffee Break to tell a friend how much they mean to me. 

I used C.C. Designs Cardstock which is another **gush**  amazing product!  Love using my copics when I color on the paper.  I used Pebbles 6 x 6 paper pad: Front Porch line, which I had never broken into and I love the patterns in this line.  It made me think of a warm summer day....and who couldn't use one of those?  I love to paper piece and even though this is a digi, it is so easy to paper piece.  I just copied the image twice and used repositionable adhesive to run it through the printer....voila! 

The sentiments popped into my head as soon as I seen this image.  Inside the card it says "and smiled"....who doesn't smile when they think of someone they love?  Really folks we should be walking around with smiles on our faces all day long! 

I love to get love and would love it if you left a comment!  Happy Scrapping Peeps!


Imagine That Birthday Blog HOP

HIP HOP HIP HOP HIP HOP.......no its not the Easter Bunny.....its the Imagine That Design Team celebrating with a BLOG HOP!!!!  You really need to participate because there are some really great projects and wonderful prizes to be won! 

If your on the blog hop then you just arrived from Jerusha's blog.  If you just landed here from space and are wondering what you should do then start HERE.  I have a secret letter for you to collect but I must admit I am not good at keeping fun secrets,......not at All...I know that Imagine that is a very nice place to shop, they have a fabulous store owner and they are having  fun blog hop......so I am thinking that D....D.....D....D, just might be what you are looking for. 

There are so many new sets that Kris has developed for this Birthday Bash!  Pick one, Pick two, well if you want pick them all because they are just so darn cute!

Here is a project I created with a new set from the store.

OH Happy Day!

Really Kris from Imagine That has out done herself!  This cute kitty is just screaming that she needs to be in your digi collection....really don't you think so?

Before becoming a part of the DT at Imagine That I hardly ever printed off colored images.  I thought if you made the card well shouldn't you color it?  I must admit the efficiency of having a image all ready to go is not just great, it's AMAZING! 
I am late with this blog entry....well I busted my knee, not once (just about healed) then I fell over my Grammies dog.....grrrrrr.  I could not walk for about 5 days and then when I was learning to hobble I at least stayed home off the ice and can now get around pretty good again....okay that is enough of my sad story; but, I am back in business and hope to be creating some new cards for a Party that just might be coming your way!  I really would go check out the Imagine That store because BIG things might be coming your way....you know....just sayin.....
cheers Y'all
happy crafting
