Farewell Blog Hop

Good morning everyone!  I am so glad you have joined us for this farewell blog hop! You should have arrived here from Jeanne's blog.  If not start at Tanya's blog, which is the first stop in the hop.

Though it is sad to say good-bye I take with me wonderful memories of being on the most awesome design team with such a great group of gals!  So we were asked to share a few of our favorite projects from 2013.

Here is a card I made in August.  How CUTE is that octopus?!!  I shared a new technique for the background and was quite pleased with the results.  You may see the original post here.

Second is my "dream kitchen".  You can see the original post here.  Next is this shadow box created with several of my favorite sets.

I think this depicts my style best, creating fun scenes.  Click here to see my original post.

Here is a card I made to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

I want to thank all of you for visiting my blog throughout the year.  I hope you will continue to visit often.  Now your next stop on this farewell hop is the sweet and talented Glora.  Don't forget to leave comments on each blog for a chance to win a face set of your choice.

As a thank you to my followers I have a prize too! Be sure to leave a comment here for a chance to win one of two sets.  I am offering PK-266 Duck Dolls and PK-209 Life is good Babies, two of my favorite sets. (I have lots of favorites!)  Good luck!

A HUGE thank you to Kathy and the entire Peachy Keen family!  Being on this design team has been such a blessing in my life and I am so lucky to call you my friends!  Love you guys!

Edit:  I forgot to share my very favorite for this year.  I named it Wonderment!

All Dressed Up Challenge

Hello friends!  My friend Viv  is on the design team for All Dressed Up digital stamps, by Wendy Burns.  A very talented group of designers and I am sure many of you are familiar with Wendy burns.  They are a new team and this is their 5th challenge.  You can read all the details here.

So I have chosen this sweet image and added poinsettias and snowflakes to make it a festive Christmas card.  I know I know, a sleeveless dress for Christmas?  Well I love the image and wanted to color her, so here it is.

I used Copics to color her.  I tend to use a lot of color on my images so I wanted a softer look.  I used E51 E11 and E00 for her skin color.  I am happy with the end result.  Her dress was colored with R17 R21 and R43.

I hope you will consider joining the challenge.  I am #4.  You still have 4 days to enter.  Thanks so much for visiting my blog!  Enjoy the day!

Hugs and smiles,

Make It Crafty DT Inspiration

Hello everyone!  Make It Colourful has a new challenge with 2 levels of difficulty.  The easy challenge is to use red and green.  Here is my card for that one.

The image I used for this card can be found here.  In fact this is the very image I colored for the store.  My next card is for the difficult challenge, adding texture.
I was inspired by Kay's card, here.  Isn't it amazing?

As you can see I added texture to the blue knit hat.  I also added pine needles and snow to the trees.  The snow is Ice White Viva Pearl Pen.  Love that stuff!

I have really enjoyed my time on the MIC FB Inspiration Team.  They are having a new DT call and you can read all about the details here.  If you want to broaden and improve your coloring skills this is a great group to be a part of!  Zoe did an amazing tutorial on Colouring Pine Trees With Snow.  Please check it out.  There is so much to learn and the women there are amazing and offer advice if you ask for it.  All skill levels are welcome!  This is the private FB group you can join and where I have spent the last 4 months on the FB team.  Thank you Zoe!  It has been so inspiring and FUN!  And big SQUEEZES to you Zoe!  You are a beautiful person, inside and out!

Hugs and smiles,

Make It Crafty DT Inspiration and Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Hi everyone!  Tonight I am sharing a card I made with 2 digi stamps.  I had so much fun coloring this.  I love the colors and flowers of the 70's.  I think that Melody from the Make It Crafty store works perfectly with Little Miss Muffet's Zen Flowers Border.

I used Copics to color these images.  I feel the bright fun colors are enough to complete the card.  No embellishments needed.  I hope you like it.  I am entering this into Little Miss Muffet Challenge 75 - You've Been Framed.

Have a great night!

Hugs and smiles,
