Happy Friday!

Hey all of you beautiful people in blogland! I hope you all are having a great Friday! I feel like I am a new person! I am actually doing what I said I would the first of this year...I am posting and not just my DT cards/projects but posting cause I have stuff to show. And I am even entering some cards into some challenges. Kinda scary for me because I have never real done that before. I will go to the dentist, brave % o'clock Friday traffic, heck I have had a friends 10 foot python on my lap (not all of it at once mind you) but enter a card in a challenge...not my usual game! LOL But here I am entering a third card in 2 days!

As I posted yesterday I have been on a roll it seems. I will normally get my card idea, papers, embellies and then get my image picked and colored to match BUT lately I have been coloring my images while I am watching TV downstairs....usually have the Red Sox now I have all of these images and no place to put them! And believe you me I have been a coloring fool. I will have to take pictures and do a post of them!

Anyhoo here is the latest card....

I used Lil Victorian Evie from Tickled Pink Stamps. I was lucky enough to win a gift certificate from Regan's blog Charmed Stamping a few months ago (got one from Simon Says too) and was able to get me some of these wonderful stamps. Now I bought the digital ones but they have them in rubber too!

I colored her with Prismacolor markers and used DCWV Street Lace papers. And of course added some bling! I was playing around with adding some shadows on her dress...I may have taken it a bit too far! LOL

I am entering this card in this challenge:,

Another Card Another Challenge!

Ok I have been on a roll making, finishing and photographing cards lately. It actually feels good, having a sense of accomplishment! It seems like sometimes I will start a card following a sketch or "lifting" a design that I have seen then it will set on my table until I get in the groove and get it done. I also seemed to have gotten into the mood for Elisabeth Bell images. I absolutely love her images. I have most of her digital images and have been collecting her rubber stamps as well. I am waiting patiently for tomorrow when her new "Peekers" set comes out.

  I kept this card pretty simple. Wanting the image to really stand out. This is the second card I made with "Little Best Friends". The first one was a card for my sisters b-day. And I colored us looking like we did when we were kids..but this card with the blue papers I decided to make then little blondies!
Above of course is a close up and right next door is the inside. I am sure some of you are asking yourself "What in the heck is that next to the card???" Well that is a "Wally" He is kicking back in has favorite adirondack chair waiting for the Sox to play! LOL

Hope you are doing great today! HUGS!

I entered this card in the For Fun Challenge and Digistamps4joy

Finally Entered A Challenge

Wow...I have made a card and found a challenge that it fits! I made this card using Rachel, Little Angel by Elisabeth Bell and her digital line. I just thought she was so cute so I kept the card pretty simple.

I hinged the card to do something different.

I used copics to color and embossed her wings to make them stand out a bit more!

Here is the inside of the card. I tried to make enough room for writing, I have been told that I don't always leave enough room on the non-specific cards! Gotta love that husband of mine!

I have entered this card in the Copic Color Challenge at Outlaws!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day! HUGS!!

I'm Seeing Stars................. and stripes everywhere

We have a new challenge starting today and by the name of my post I bet you can tell where this challenge is heading. Our very own Miss Sara at Sara's Sugar and Spice is our host for this week and you really need to check out her blog. She is a wonderful person and IS as sweet as sugar and spice and everything nice! She is also a superb artist. And now that her husband bought her 32 Copic markers....yes 32 Copics...from her husband...not just gave her money, he bought them! Anyway....since she has her new copics we shall be seeing some awesome copic artwork soon!
Now because of it being the 4th of July and all, the theme is Stars and Stripes BUT Not everyone celebrates the 4th...Guylou our fearless and wonderful leader is Canadian so they have Canada Day it got me thinking why not do two that shows my pride in this great country I live in and just a card that celebrates life! So with out further ado here is Leah celebrating the 4th....

And here is.....Leah celebrating life!

 I took some of my extra paper and die cut some stars...sizzix star border...and then I used a glaze with iridescent glitter mixed in to add a it of bling!
