Merry Little Christmas

7 Kids has started a new monthly feature called Sweet November Vault. It is a 24 hour period where they bring back a few archived Sweet November images and convert them to digital format. I am so excited to get my hands on this darling image.  Piper and her Snowman captures the giving spirit of Christmas, which I just adore.  The background is one of many winter scenes I learned from Sandy Allnock’s Winter Wonderland Copic class.  I also so appreciate Amy Young’s tutorial on 7 Kids Facebook group page, sharing techniques that were so helpful when coloring this little scene.  You can find more Christmas/Holiday Sweet November images at the 7 Kids Craft Store.  So, that’s it for today.  Thanks for stopping by!

Holiday Anya Merry Christmas

An oldy but goody, my post today is Holiday Anya from The Greeting Farm, which I believe is a retired stamp.  I do adore this sweet little image. So much so that I’ve colored her up every Christmas season for the last few years! A very simple card today, but had great time bringing her to life. Hope you enjoy!

Hi there, Pumpkin

A very exciting event has occurred in the craft world, which has motivated me to start sharing my little card creations on my blog again.  My friend Amy has reactivated her Sweet November Stamps, and they are absolutely lovely.  Let me introduce you to Pumpkin Patch Prue.  She is so fun to color, and I do love her white pumpkin patch!  The background is also available for purchase at The Seven Kids Craft Store.  I simply cannot wait to print and color all the beautiful witches in Amy’s new release, so stay tuned!

Thank You Pixie

It's been a beautiful, productive day at my house!  Love it when that happens.  And, it's exciting for me to share that I achieved a goal I set for myself to reach the top of a mountain trail by our house.  It took me a few weeks, but got it done!
And that activity just happened to fill me with all kinds of creative energy.  The hills surrounding the trail today were packed with lupine, balsam, camas, and phlox.  Which made me think of this little Pixie from Tiddly Inks.  Hope you can find her in the card, as my layout is a bit wild and crazy!!  It looks like I broke all the coloring rules... lol... but it was fun.  And that is it for my post today - thanks for your visit, and have a fabulous week!

Brightening My Day

We had a significant storm the other day.  Rain like I've never seen or heard before!  So when it came time to get crafty, I thought of little Miss Puddle Jumper, who is a part of the Roberto's Rascals collection from CC Designs.  I've been wanting to get her on a card for the longest time!  My attempt was to make this "rainy day" card as bright as possible, which isn't too difficult with these cheerful characters.  I also applied a bit of Glossy Accents on the puddle, and on her hat.  And, of course, a CAS layout.  In the end, she made me smile.  Yay!  That's it for today... have a good rest of your weekend!

Sweet As Can Be

I've got another quick post for you on this Friday, as I ran out of time yesterday to get it up on the ol' blog.  And this little Pure Innocence Milk & Cookies from My Favorite Things couldn't possibly miss out on the spotlight!  She finally got a chance to sit down and enjoy her treat... ahhhhh.  She was a fun one to color.  But, I think I'd go crazy if I lived in a house with that wild wallpaper.  What can I say... it does match her chair!  The important things.... LOL.  I'm off and running... thank you, as always, for taking a minute to view my project today.

Pink Birthday Wishes

Today I've colored up another cutie from The Greeting Farm.  Her name is Dollie with Ice Cream.  Dollies are top on my list of Greeting Farm favorites.  Her expression and posture reminds me of how I felt when I was traveling on business.  There was always much more on my to do list than I had time for.  Packing for varied events, delayed flights, missed connections, preparing presentations, nerves.... on the verge of complete frazzlement!!  However, I would also consider a triple scoop chocolate chip mint ice cream cone the ultimate remedy!!  Especially if it was to be shared with a friend.  LOL.  Thanks for stopping, and I hope you have a fabulous Friday!
