All Of Me

Hello! I decided to color up another image from Mo's Digital Pencil. This one is titled "From the Same Tree". It's a very cute series of images centered around sets of brothers and sisters. I did a little switcheroo, though, 'cause I wanted these two from the "Brothers" set to be brother and sister - my brother and I, in fact! Hope I pulled it off... lol! It was fun matching their outfits to the banner arched above them. My friend, Amy, gave me the idea of cutting the banner from the Echo Park/Autumn Bunting DP. We did this together on a card we worked on a few weeks ago, and I decided to apply it with this project as well. So, thanks Amy! :)
Alrighty then, I'm off to get some errands done - hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Hello Friend

Happy Monday to you!
What to do when you know it's going to rain buckets when camping with your husband? You bring the craft room! This darling little gal is called "Hello Autumn", from Mo's Digital Pencil. It could have been a little claustrophobic in our camper with the rain pounding down all day; but not when this little darlin' was keeping me company!
Fall colors have always been my favorite - which just added to the fun! I kept the design very simple - just adore her gazing up at that colorful leaf; I didn't want to distract from it!
Hope you enjoy, and thanks for visiting!

You are Such a Hoot

Sami Stamps has another fantastic release, "Halloween Hoots" - and a challenge as well, for the month of October. I chose to color "Pumpkin Hoot", and really had fun putting it together. I started out masking the image, and layering distressed ink. For texture, I added a splattering of Picket Fence; I also used my stipple brush over the background as a final touch.  This owl makes quite a presentation in this image, so I decided to color him up big - and was pleased with the results!   This month's challenge is to add texture to your creation - ribbons, fabric, paint - any kind of texture to add interest. You'll find these images to be a lot of fun, so be sure to check out the rest of the design team's fabulous cards at Sami's Shop! Thank you for stopping by, and have yourself a great weekend!

There is also a set for the boys (4 Seasons Boys)... both equally awesome and amazing! There is a darling character for each season just flirting with you to color them up! My card today is another CAS layout, but with an abundance of color! The rest of the guys and gals will be on the ol' blog in the coming seasons - so stay tuned! ;) Alrighty then, I'm off to run errands - lots'n'lots of company this weekend! Eeek!

Hello There

It's hard to believe Halloween is soon upon us - the fun of the holidays begins! In honor of this fine "trick or treat" holiday, I've colored "Vanessa Vampire" from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I'm also going to toss my hat into their challenge titled, "Pick a Holiday, Any Holiday!". This one was a kick to create; I think because the paper I chose had a lot of bright, fun colors.  I can just imagine hearing her with that vampire voice whipping around the corner with a "hello there" that makes you want to turn around and beat feet!  LOL. Anyway - I hope you enjoy her, and I also thank you for stopping by!

Thank You

Some evenings when all that is appearing on the TV is football (hubby's in charge of the remote), I like to peruse crafty websites on my tablet.  On one of those occasions, I found a digital stamp company on Etsy - OddballArtCo.  The images are a bit quirky, but I adore them!  The owner and creator of these fabulous images is Lizzy Love, and she's really come up with some fun characters.  Today's star is Big Eye Girl in Monster Hood. Isn't she cute?  I left the card CAS - which tends to be my typical choice, but I'm happy with the results.  You will definitely be seeing more from Oddball Art on my blog in the future!  That's it for today - have a good one, and see you back here soon!
