Happy Birthday...


Since I haven't colored up an ADFD digi since Christmas I figured it was past time to get creative with one of their sweet images. Puffy Flower Fairy has been another digi just sitting on my desk waiting so I figured she had waited long enough and got to coloring. My friend Tracey got this gorgeous handmade specialty paper at an art store called Paper Source and she was kind enough to share some with me. The little white flowers were such a perfect match to the flowers in this darling fairy's hair that I had to pair them up. I love how it looks like she is perched above a spring meadow. Sigh... I'm certainly dreaming of spring myself. Anywho, since this month's challenge on the ADFD blog is 'anything goes' I figured I would pop this card into the mix.  :)

Hope you all have a crafty weekend!

What's new pussycat...

Hi guys!

Hi had another super busy day at work yesterday and there wasn't a lot of time to wind down in the crafty room once I got home. What's a girl to do? I searched around my desk until I found this little kitty from Sister Stamps, called Otsu, all colored up and fussy cut ta boot. I had done all that work back in October for a Halloween card but it didn't come together back then. Now originally this sweet kitty is meant to be on its back and you can add a ball of yarn, present, etc to his paws but I thought it would be cute to flip him around and have him peeking through a window, like we've caught him contemplating how to get that fish out of the bowl. That mischievous look is all too familiar around my house, LOL! Anywho, it was fun putting this quick card together even if I didn't spend a lot of time on it. :)

Catch ya on the flip side!  
Supply list:
cardstock- Papertrey Ink and Copic X-Press It

Happy Birthday...


Today I've made a card using the new beauty, Hi Anya from TGF. I didn't know what kind of card this was going to be when I first started coloring her up. Even after I found this great scrap of paper I still wasn't sure. There are so many happy colors and patterns in this quilt looking paper that I stamped Anya on four different squares to pick just the right print to paper piece her dress from. Ultimately I went with the blue because it looked the best with her brassy red hair. In the end Anya let me know that this should be a birthday card and who was I to argue?  ;)

Later gators!

You have my heart...

Mornin' friends!

Happy Valentine's Day! For my last Valentine card of the year I've colored up Heart You from Mo's Digital Pencil. Talk about adorable, this little uni-sex cutie has definitely stolen my heart. I ended up choosing a pink and purple color scheme so I suppose she's looking rather feminine but with a quick change of papers and colors it could just as easily be a sweet little boy giving his heart away. I'm entering this into the February 'anything goes' challenge over at the Mo's Digital Challenge blog.

Have a lovely heart day with plenty chocolatey goodness!  :)

My love...

Hi there! 

It was a super busy weekend at work but I managed to find a couple hours to play in my crafty room yesterday and I wanted to make a card for this week's MFT sketch challenge. Because I didn't have a lot of time to devote to coloring I figured it was a good reason to grab my Pure Innocence binder and find a simple cutie to color up quickly. I chose this sweet Happy Mail stamp and it must be an older one because she isn't available in the MFT store anymore. I know I've had this stamp for years and for the life of me I can't remember if I've gotten her on a card before. If not, I'm really glad I got her on one now. I paired her up with some older Doodlebug papers and stickers to make a Valentine because the envelopes on that paper were just too perfect not to. :)

Well, thanks for dropping by today I hope your week is off to a great start!

The East Wind put up a new challenge last week and the theme this time is 'love and romance'. As I was looking through my digis to find the perfect cutie for this card I came across Aurora Hair Tree and thought that with a little hair cut she would have a perfectly romantic looking up-do. So I colored her up to match this pretty paper and then fussy cut the ends off her hair until she had a dreamy Gibson Girl coif. Now I think she looks like she's ready for a Valentine's Day date with her special love. :)

Alrighty, thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend my friends!

Love you...

Hey there!

It's a snow day for me, I was hoping to go into town today but I'm staying home instead due to the winter storm that is dumping more and more snow on us. I'm bummed about having to change my plans but I guess that just means more crafting time for me. :)
So Some Odd Girl has started a new monthly challenge over on their blog and it is 'anything goes with a twist'. The twist this month is sequins, glitter or love and I ran with the love theme. This pretty Blooming digi brought to mind a bouquet of Valentine roses so I colored her up to be a little love sprite spreading the magic of Valentine's Day. 

Ok, time for me to go make a cuppa cocoa and get cozy. Have a good one!
