Getting Ready For Easter

Hope every one had a fantastic weekend!
Both my husband I are sick, so I spent Saturday, after work, and Sunday on the couch!
Which means NO CRAFTING!!!
I am back at work today and just want to go back to bed! :)
Anyway I was trying to get an Easter basket done with
one of the adorable Bunny Girl images
I had the image colored early last week but
was going to put the basket together Sunday!

Here is what I have so far....

I am sitting at my desk at work....
yes I bring my coloring to work!
Nice to be married to the boss! LOL
Anyway I will post once I finish it!

if not you want to go back to Scrapper's Delights and work your way through!
You do not want to miss a thing!
The hop will start today and will end on Sunday!
So get moving!

Here is the card I made:

I used one of the images, For U digi, made especially for this hop.
Isn't she just adorable! When I saw her I thought of  Annie....
so I went with the reddish hair.
I added fabric flowers and fabric bows to give some more dimension!
I really like how this turned out!

Now for the deets on the hop....

You want to make sure that you go each and every blog and leave a comment.
There are some prizes to be given!
We have teamed up with the lovely Paulette from TLC and
she has been kind enough to provide us DT members
with sentiments to use on our creations. How nice was that?
So there will be one lucky winner that will win
not only an image from TLC's store but the entire word art set!

In addition to the grand pize, 5 DTs will randomly draw a name from the commentors
on their blogs and give away 1 image.
You will not know which 5 DTs so be sure to comment on everyone's blog.
There will be 6 winners in total!! Winners will be announced on Tuesday, March 27th

From here you should go to the fantastically talented Jodie's blog.

Good luck and don't forget to leave some love!

The last stop is TLC so make sure you let her know you
are coming from the Scrapper's Delights hop!
Hope I didn't forget anything!
Have fun!!!

Here's Daisy!

I have always been a fan of Elizabeth Bell and
when I found out that this stamp was going to be
re-released at Elphine House 
I knew I had to have it!

So here is Daisy!

You can use this stamp for so many occasions!
She is so adorable!
I used Prisma Markers to color her...and tried to
do the shadowing a bit different, I used grey instead of just a
darker color or darkening it up with the same color.
My coloring is a work in progress! LOL
The papers are from Basic Grey Sweet Threads
I used my Martha Stewart punches...the branch one and
the wide leaf or vine one. I never can remember the exact names!
Hope you like it!
I sent this to my wonderful friend Sara!
She has been going through so much lately and I hope it
brightens her day just a bit!

Iwould like to enter this in the following challenges:

Another day...another two posts

Please look a bit further down.....yup down there.....

I have two posts for for Scrapper's Delights and one for Sassy Studio Designs! Please check out both! Thank you! HUGS!!!

Going Greeeeeeen!

OK I admit it, I am not a green person.
I can count on one hand, with fingers left over
the number of green shirts I have in my closet.
So when Sassy's sponsored the Crazy Challenge
and the theme was go green,
I cringed but signed up for it! :)

I have been wanting to use Syrena for so long
and had a new GREEN paper pad by K&Co
so figured it was fate!

Here is what I came up with:

I wanted to keep it pretty simple BUT
after Iadded the ribbon it needed something more so
I added the pearls, it is actually a grouping that Icut and stuck!
When I layed the image down I realized it needed some thing else too!
I looked for some fish net that I thought I had but could not find
so Ipulled out some of my tule. Believe it or not is is from
my wedding favors back in '04! I can't throw
anything away that Ijust may have crafting use for! LOL
I used copics to color her...I did her hair kind of messily....
I wanted the just out of the ocean look. HAHA
And I added clear star over her hair and tail....I tried
to get the picture angled enough but it still did not show very well!
Anyway I hope you like it!

Spring break is almost here and summer right around the corner!

OK I have to admit that I watch Dancing With The Stars.
I started watching it a few seasons in...
whatever season Jerry Rice was on it.
And then got kind of hooked!
Well it is starting soon and this image reminded me of that!

This is Princess 4 by Scrapper's Delights!
I absolutely love it!
I made 3 copies so I could layer it up....
 colored the image with Primas markers, added some
rhinestones, flowers and the lattice ribbon.
Check out the store and get yours today!

I Feel Purple!

We have a new challenge starting at
My wonderful design team member Trina
came up with the theme this week and that
theme is:


I tried to do a few things that just did not work!
I wanted to change up the plain purple paper I chose just a bit
by using versa mark and a background stamp!
The first time when I added my embossing powder, it
would not heat right...ok I admit it....Igrabbed my fine glitter
that was put in my embossing tray by mistake!
So after a few attempts here is what Icame up with:

 Each layer of paper has a heat embossed stamping
on it. The powder is a irredesent "color" to give it some shine.
I used one of Guylou's latest images called Felcia and the Mushroom.
You get two different images when you purchase with the mushroom
that is plain and one with a design on it! Very cute!

Now you know it would not be a challenge with out rules and prizes.
So make sure you follow the theme and have some fun.
All the deets are on the challenge blog!

It's Thursday!

It's Thursday and you know what that means!

This week the challenge is MONOCHROMATIC!

This is a hard one for me. I start out real good and then
I notice all my colors are the same shade.
So I really worked on trying to get this right!

I had colored this image awhile ago and never used it.
So when I saw it already colored and ready to go I decided to
use it as my inspiration!
The image is Victorian Beauty and can be found in the SSDStore!
The flower was from Prisma, the pearl sprays are from Michael's
and the ribbon I belive came from Joann's.
The paper is from a K&Co paper pad.

Make sure you follow the theme and enter your project

Two Posts!

WOW I seem to be on a roll with posts!
Please scroll down to see both my
Sassy Studio Design project
and my Scrapper's Delights project!

All About The Ladies

is sponsoring Love To Create's challenge this week
and the theme is all about the ladies!
I wanted to go soft and pretty
so here is the card I made:
I used Lingere Lindsay...
 used Copics to color her, Recollection rhinestones
and Prima flower.

I want to enter this into the following challenges:

Pretty in Pink!

Janice has been on a roll with these Princess images!
AND I am in love with them!
For this card I wanted the image to be front and center...
having the elements small and more contained on the card.
I think I achieved that:

This is Princess 3
I colored her with copics, added bling from Recollections,
paper is from stash and the whole thing was
spritzed with diamond mist.
Hope you like it!!!
