You Are My Sunshine

Greetings!! It's really a lot of fun to get involved in the challenges out there in the crafty world! Today I'm throwing my hat in for the Tiddly Inks Tingo Challenge, using a Tiddly Inks image, Diecut, and Ribbon. Today's star is Shy Violet Wryn - just love her sweet expression as she anticipates gifting her little terra cotta pot filled with violets! I relate to Wryn - it's so fun to brighten a person's day with small gifts of thoughtfulness. That's it for today - thank you for stopping by! :)

Make Today Awesome

Today I've colored Carnival Anya from The Greeting Farm. It looks as though she's already been to the carnival, and found a nice field of flowers to enjoy her frosty beverage. She just keeps making the day awesome!! I'm going to enter this card into the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge... I thought they came up with a great layout! Thank you for visiting my blog, and I hope your day is awesome as well!

Simple Things

There is a challenge on A Day for Daisies Blog to add glitter to one of their images. So, I've decided to color Flower Fairy for the occasion!  I challenged myself to stay neutral, and use as few colors as possible.  Ultimately, however, I learned that no matter how monochromatic my color theme, I needed lotsa pens to create dimension... lesson learned!  Also, the glitter is difficult to see in the image, but there's actually sparkle on her wings.  :)  Another fun card to create, and I ended up pleased with the results!  Thank you for stopping by!

You're The Bomb

Hello!  Please say hello to Azary, from The Greeting Farm!  Kinda like this guy!  And, he was so much fun to color!
One (of many) things that is incredibly rewarding about making cards is that it provides you with another way to put your heart and soul into expressing gratitude, friendship, love, sympathy, and acknowledgement of a job well done.  Today, my post is about congratulations.  Way to go, Wah!

Wish Big

Hey, there!  This cute little Greeting Farm guy is "Ian", from the "Rock the Farm" set.  I'm going to make him my second contender for the June Farm Fresh Challenge.  This is the second time I've colored him... I have several fishermen in the family, and he just seems to fit the bill.  Hope he makes you smile, and thanks for stopping by!

Hello I love you

Today I've colored Twin Marko for The Greeting Farm's "Farm Fresh Challenge", "All about the boys"!  I started this little project by first stenciling "The Wall", by Prima, with Vintage Photo distressed ink.  And then had a lot of fun coloring Marko.  Love TGF ' S Creepers... I raised two boys, so it's fun to dress these guys in their liking.  This guy reminded me of my youngest... A rough and tumble skateboarder, with a tender heart.  Hope you enjoy!

Scribble Scribble

Hello!  Every once in a while I come across a stamp set that makes me, (a grown, somewhat responsible woman, and grandma to the cutest grandbaby on the plant), GIGGLE!  The Mama Elephant, Monster Jam stamps did just that... absolutely love them!  So, one of these little monsters landed on my card today, and he was great fun to color.  The background was done by applying drops of Tim Holtz Distressed Ink on water color paper, and then blowing the paint around through a straw.  Really a very simple card, but was happy with the results.  So, that's it for today!  Thank you for your visit to my blog!
