Little hearts...

Good morning!

Somebody finally went and watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens this past weekend and she loved it! After being disappointed with the majority of the prequel episodes I will admit to a renewed excitement for this amazing universe. I've already got theories and guesses about how all the new characters weave in to the larger mythos and I can't wait to find out how close any of my predictions might be. How long do we have to wait before episode 8 hits theaters?  ;)

Alrighty, enough fan-girling and on to today's card... I couldn't resist printing out this precious little sweetie from Mo's Digital Pencil called Peggy. Doesn't she make for a fun Valentine? I just adore her coy look and that round little belly. I paired her up with a cute kid quote sentiment that I think reflects Peggy's general attitude. For the rest of the card design I decided to forgo pattern paper and instead grabbed some under utilized washi tape with a few other bits and bobs that I found on my desk. :)

Well, I should get myself ready for the day. Thanks for stopping by!

My heart is happy...

TGIF my friends!

I've got another Tiddly Inks Valentine to share today, this time the sweet Grow A Little Love Wryn is the star of the show. I guess I can't get over those cute heart shaped flowers, LOL! I wish the photo showed it better but that embossed heart background adds a lot more detail to this CAS design than it shows here. I even used Copics to color a few of them which really became the only embellishment on this card... talk about simple. I'm gonna go ahead and throw this card into the current 'love' challenge over at Tiddly Inks too. 

Alrighty, I've got to get ready for my trip to town. Have a great weekend everbody!  :)

Feel the love...

Hi there!

I've got a card for this week's Bellarific Challenge to share today. The theme is 'love is in the air' and I did a bit of altering to Uptown Girl Claudia has Candy to make her work for a sweet Valentine. All I had to do was wipe away her giant lollipop and replace it with the enamel heart sticker. The card was super quick to put together because everything but Claudia came from the February Simon Says kit. The pretty pastel paper with its touch of teal totally inspired the colors for Claudia's outfit as well. And even though the enamel letters are probably a bit big for a card I like the impact they have in the overall design. Clean and simple but I certainly feel the love, LOL! ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

Enjoy today...

Hello, hello!
I'm posting over on the TGF blog today and I'm excited to be sharing new shades of Anya's Salon. If you missed the first salon post the idea is a simple one, create eight different hair color combos using six Copic markers. For this visit  to Anya's Salon Anya has decided to go red and Marie has even added a brand new Red Head Anya digi to the store just for the occasion! So if you would like to see what Anya's Salon is all about head on over to The Greeting Farm blog today and check it out.
For my card I colored up Red Head Anya using the Autumn Sunrise combo but I also wanted to give her a body. So I grabbed Flirty Anya and did a super simple head swap. Now this gorgeous ginger is ready to hit the town looking oh so stylish and ready to turn some heads, LOL! 

Have a good one everybody!  :)

Happy Heart Day...

Good morning!

I'm running behind on a very busy day already so this post will have to be a quickie. It's been too long since I've inked up a Tiddly Inks cutie so today I thought I would share a sweet Valentine that I made using the Bloom Beautifully Emma digi. Talk about adorable... I love those heart shaped flowers that she comes with... it makes for a very fun and whimsical scene. The card design stayed pretty clean and simple with just a touch of stitching and a sprinkling of sequins to add embellishment but when you have an image as adorable as Emma what else do you need? And I am also going to enter this card into the current 'love' challenge over on the Tiddly Inks blog. :)

Alrighty, gotta run! Toodles!

Always & Forever...

It's February 1st and that means a brand new Farm Fresh Challenge is underway at The Greeting Farm! As you know a new challenge is issued at the beginning of every month over on the TGF blog and this time we want to see you add 'A Touch of Red' to your creations. February is the month of love so why not ink up your most loved TGF stamp and play along for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate? Better yet, treat yourself to a new digi that you've fallen in love with from the store and get creative!

For my Touch of Red card I printed out two Wild Sprout digis, Dressy Joyce and Dressy Daniel, to make a lovey couple. If you ask me they look like they are dressed to the nines for a romantic Valentine's dinner date. I kept the card design clean and simple with just the frame of pretty red paper around the edge. And the touches of red in Joyce and Daniel's outfits were colored to match.

Later gators!  :)

I'm heading off to spend the day coloring with a friend so I'm one happy chica this morning. Sure, the forecast is predicting a rain/snow mix but through the power of positive thinking I'm hoping that it is just rain for my drive. 
So today felt like a Saturated Canary kind of day, probably because I've been wanting to color up this beauty for a few months now but had to wait 'til we got a bit closer to spring to get her on a card. This lovely little gal is called Ribbons Fairy and she is quite magical. I paired her up with some bright and beautiful papers by We R Memorykeepers because the roses and sunshine are really appealing to me at the moment. The color scheme turned out to be a refreshing change of pace from the Copics I have been pulling. It's always good to shake things up a bit.  ;)

Well, I'm outta here. Have a great weekend everybody!
